Kona Libre

The Kona Libre is built for some outback fun

When it comes to drop-bar bikes, Kona has never been at the top of the road racer’s list, but when things get dirty, they are a familiar competitor. With a long and winning history of competing in both cyclocross and mountain biking, it’s no surprise that the majority of their drop-bar offerings come with wide, dual-purpose tires targeting the CX, adventure and gravel crowds.

So, when a Kona box arrived and their carbon Libre CR with 700c wheels was inside, we were excited for the adventure to come. Kona offers the Libre with either a 1x or 2x drivetrain, and the CR is supplied with 1x, while the DL is the 2x version that rolls on 650b wheels.
