Our Kona Process 153 link brings the Sentinel link's proven benefits to the Process 153. With an increase in progression and travel, the bike is able to maintain traction much better than before, while also remaining more composed through large impacts. The increase in mid-stroke support offers a better platform to push against in turns and g-outs as well. All of this corresponds to a more confidence-inspiring and comfortable ride that lets you push harder.
The Process 153 link increases the progression to 24% from 11%. This works well with both air and coil shocks. Before you dive into getting a new shock as well, it’s worth running it with what you have. The Process 153 link will improve the feel substantially and you may no longer feel like replacing the shock as well.
To top it off, we have designed the link to be much easier to maintain than the stock one. The bearings are sized up to improve their lifespan and the stock hardware interfaces with the link better than before. The seatstay pivots now have more overlap with the link body, and the hardware with flats will no longer rotate in their pockets and gouge the part.
