Kona Sutra ULTD Review: Sibling Rivalry

Logan Watts

The Kona Sutra ULTD “UnLimTeD” is a bike that aims to blur boundaries and tackle any terrain. After six months riding singletrack, bikepacking, and gravelling the ULTD all around the southern Appalachians, Logan picks this beast apart and compares it to its older sibling, the venerable Sutra LTD. Find the full, long-term review here...

  • Good tire clearance and all the mounts and specs you could hope for make it a drop-bar bikepacking rig that ticks a lot of boxes
  • Well balanced, super stable, and confident while descending
  • Versatile bike that begs to be pushed and played with
  • Fantastical iridescent paint job
  • Internal routing and room for a decent size dropper
  • Not as long-day friendly as the LTD
  • Same terribly soft derailleur hanger as its older sibling
  • Heavy build kit
  • Kona ditched the XD driver, which is bad for the overall gear range
