Cross-country mountain biking is all about going fast. It’s about racing and winning and beating your buddies and throwing the hammer down.
It’s also about having a blast riding singletrack. We took the racing gear off, and the heart rate monitors, and took our featherlight carbon Kona XC Race Light bikes–the Hei Hei Supreme, Hei Hei Deluxe, and King Kahuna on a little spin through the wilds of Maui. Because at Kona, we can’t make it super fast without having it be really fun.
