Kona Mountain Bikes (also Kona USA Inc.) is a bike company headquartered in Ferndale Washington and Vancouver B.C., Canada. It was founded in 1988 by former employees of Rocky Mountain Bicycles, Ritchey, and Marin. They make excellent bikes that combine reliability and performance. I ride their bikes confidant that they are well-tested in the most demanding terrain of the Pacific Northwest. Kona is also active in the racing community.
