City Lines

http://pages.rapha.cc/stories/city-redefined Modernity is defined by modes of communication. As we find faster and easier ways to share information, we are becoming over connected, bombarded with data by the second. But whilst touch-screens and bit rates take us further in, there’s one particular machine that can help us move away from the malaise of everyday city life. The bicycle allows us to move around the built environment independently and efficiently, beyond deadlines, data and the glare of devices. You power it yourself at your own rate. And connect to the world with your own line.

Kona Growing Up Cross

On any given weekend during late summer through to early winter, cyclocross racers of all ages gather to test their mettle through mud and frozen grass, up and over obstacles, from Europe to North America and beyond. Kona has always loved cyclocross racing, from the camaraderie to the challenge, and of course, the unadulterated fun. As a testament to that passion, we follow three Kona cross racers from age 9 to 33. Two racers from Rad Racing NW, one of the top youth development cycling programs in the U.S., to Kona Team rider Helen Wyman, one of the top female cross racers in the world. For us, it's not only about creating bikes for future champions, but also inspiring a love for cycling that lasts a lifetime.
