Last year, Kona launched their Kona Ambassador Program to provide support to a select group of super-unknown cyclists with a wide range of interests and skillsets, which is now back for 2020. And you’ll be pleased to know the application process is very simple: just answer the seven questions listed on Kona’s website and send them in by 12:00 AM PST on Friday, November 15th. Here’s what Kona has to say about the program.
From Kona: “Last year we kicked off our ambassador program with smashing success. Hundreds of people from all over the world applied to help spread the Kona stoke and we could not be happier with the crew we assembled for 2019. From incredible photographers to super creative writers, cooks, artists, and filmers, we had a nonstop flow of really cool and creative content. It’s time to add more creatives to the mix!
So how does it work? The Kona Ambassador program is based around themes. Ambassadors are given a new theme to work with roughly every six weeks. Our 2019 themes have been: winter, light, the longest days, time travel, and lost and found. We will be switching up a few things in the program for 2020 but there will still be themes that ambassadors will be able to work with to create their projects.
What’s in it for you? Well, sweet deals on bikes, of course! We’ll also give you some Kona swag to rock too! We’re also available to help you ensure you have the tools needed to create your best projects. This could be as simple as providing creative feedback and brainstorming or assisting with costs associated with photography or video, helping you get to a cool location, or just helping you find other like-minded ambassadors to work with. These requests will be handled and considered on a case-by-case basis throughout the year.”
