The Kona Big Honzo takes everything fun about the standard Honzo, but builds it up around a 27.5+ platform for more cushion, grip, and good times. While it appears not a whole lot has changed for 2022, the Big Honzo’s build kits and paint jobs were just updated, and it’s looking pretty dialed for a sub $2,000 aluminum hardtail. Both the Big Honzo and Big Honzo DL are specced with wide range drivetrains, 130mm travel forks, and dropper posts. For 2022, the Big Honzo has fully external cable routing, which should make regular maintenance that much easier and likely keeps the price down as well.
