I can’t imagine what it’s like to ride a bike in Finland, much less in the middle of winter. Luckily, this new video from Kona gives a little insight into what it’s like to cycle in arguably one of the most cycling friendly places on the globe. With over 1,200km of bike paths, the cyclists of Finland utilize their bikes as a means of transportation, regardless of the weather…
I like it when companies take a minute to profile some of their athletes, rather than putting out a pulse-racing video of them riding. Kudos to Kona for this one.
The history of the Humu within the Kona lineup dates back to 1992, mountain bikes were a lot different back then, which might explain its early design. Double top tube, moto-inspired handlebars and the body language of a beach cruiser, moreso than a MTB.
These days, simpler can still be better and just as fun, which is why the modern Humu comes with Kona’s original P2 fork, but gets modern upgrades like sliding dropouts, disc brakes and 29 inch wheels. Now let’s see some footage of it shredding dirt!
