Connor Fearon has had a busy off season, one that has meant he’s done more riding than most! His latest project being a mission into British Columbia’s Selkirk Mountains with the new Kona Hei Hei Trail. A bike with 60 mm (+) less travel than what he hit’s the worlds toughest DH tacks on, but a bike he’s found is more than capable.

The Hei Hei Trail is an out of the box thinker, like many of Kona’s bikes. Everyone who swings a leg over one notes that it outrides its numbers, surpassing their expectations of a trail bike’s capabilities. Light and efficient with its full carbon frame and Fuse suspension design, snappy and playful on the way back down. While the Fuse suspension design is shared with Kona’s race-ready Hei Hei cross-country bike, the Hei Hei Trail, with 140mm of travel and 27.5″ wheels, is a completely different beast. It’s the kind of bike that challenges preconceptions, and redefines what a bike in this class can do. Hence this video, kick back and enjoy. For more details on Kona’s latest shredder check out their site here. And we’re hoping to be onboard reviewing one real soon…
