When Kona launched the ULTD last year, I don’t think they anticipated its success. What began as an experimental model has now replaced the Sutra LTD for 2022 and the 2021 LTD has been discontinued. So why did Kona do this? It could be a change in consumer demand. People want big, meaty tires, dropper posts, and more expedition-oriented tourers.
