VIDEO: My Kona – Richard Aelter

by 1

Kona send word that they’re making a series of videos about their staff, their bikes, and where they ride. The first is this slice of dry autumn loveliness, ridden by EU warranty manager Richard Aelter. We particularly like their use of interesting closeups, and it’s been a while since we’ve seen slomo used this well too:

David started mountain biking in the 90’s, by which he means “Ineptly jumping a Saracen Kili Racer off anything available in a nearby industrial estate”. After growing up and living in some extremely flat places, David moved to Yorkshire specifically for the mountain biking. This felt like a horrible mistake at first, because the hills are so steep, but you get used to them pretty quickly.

Previously, David trifled with road and BMX, but mountain bikes always won. He’s most at peace battering down a rough trail, quietly fixing everything that does to a bike, or trying to figure out if that one click of compression damping has made things marginally better or worse. The inept jumping continues to this day.

    I always used to ride Konas after my first bike a Marin, now in my sixties I’m riding a Boardman. But still have a Kona soft spot!
