Cascade Components Announces Kona Process 153 Link

Orange Process 153 link


PRESS RELEASE: Cascade Components

Who remembers the Dangerboy rockers you used to be able to buy for the Stinky just shy of two decades ago? We are pleased to bring you our addition to the history of Kona rocker links with our Process 153 link. We have designed our link to increase the progression to 24% from the stock 11% and bump the travel up to 160 mm. These changes transform the suspension, giving you more grip over rough terrain, significantly improved bottom-out resistance, and more mid-stroke support. As a bonus, we have increased the size of the shock pivot bearings in order to increase their longevity. In line with our other links, the climbing performance of the bike remains unchanged.

Process 153 link colors
The Process 153 link is available in black, orange, and silver

The Process 153 link is designed around the stock size shock, so no new shock is needed to run the link. At 24% progression you can run either air or coil depending on what you ride and how you ride it. The link is compatible with both the carbon and aluminum frames. Because of the seat stay bridge, the stock shock size is the largest shock size you can run with the link.

Specs and Details

• Travel: 160 mm with stock shock
• Progression increases to 24% from 11%
• Larger size 6900 Enduro MAX bearings
• CNC'd out of 6061-T6 in the USA
• Cost $352 USD
Kona Process 153 leverage curve comparison

Is the Process 153 link worth the cost? That’s up to you. However, the link creates a more notable improvement than any other alteration you can make to the 153’s rear suspension and comes in at much less than the price of a shock. Doesn't stuffing your shock full of volume spacers accomplish the same thing? Definitely not. We have tried many configurations and volume spacers don’t come close to mimicking the changes this link makes to the kinematics. What should you expect your initial impression to be if you get the chance to ride a link? It’s like new bike day in the best kind of way.

 If it's to easy to drastically improve a bike with just a new linkage, why do the manufacturers get it wrong so often?
  • 47 7
 Because the avaerage buyer wont give a damn about more progressivity or small bump compliance.

People who are into that kind of stuff are not the majority.

Doesnt fully explain why manufactures dont make the best out of their bikes.
Maybe to improve it 10% every year? Cost cutting?
Who knows


My Stumpjumper CC link works way better than stock and I absolutely believe that every rider benefits from a better linkage..

 Because they think we all want to run cheap crappy shocks

 The answer is the same as to why you would change any other component on a stock bike and why the manufacturer picked it in the first place. Compromise
  • 28 0
 Way way back I read an interview with John Whyte about how he went about designing his frames. He stated he designed bikes with the average rider in mind, so he went for softer set ups that were more comfortable at slower speeds. I assume that's still the case for a lot of designs.
  • 6 7
 Because they want every buck they can like improving the bike %10-20 per 2-3 year

 @TommyNunchuck I came here to say the same thing. I would love to hear from some of the manufacturers that Cascade has made updated links for, to give them an opportunity to explain why they didn't choose to produce the bike with the "update" from day one.
  • 10 2
 Because Manufacturers often aren’t designing bikes for coil shocks. The stump jumper is about 9% progressives with the stock link so it suits a particular shock and tune. People want light and balanced, so designing all rounder bikes like this makes sense. Cascade Designs comes in and designs a link to up the progression (again on the stumpy) to 22ish percent. Now you can run a coil, or keep the stock shock but use less volume spacers and not bottom out as easy. Is the average rider looking to make their stump jumper take big hits or run a coil? Realistically not. Cascade Designs gets to design their product with meaningful but specific improvements in mind. I can tell you the stumpy link was way more effective for what I wanted than changing the rear shock(which I tried first).

 @IllestT: What is the compromise though? They make it sound like this link is all good, no bad. So, what does this link do that makes your bike worse?
  • 7 0
 @thechunderdownunder: I bought my most recent bike, a 2020 Sentinel, based in part on their choice to increase the progression over the previous model. I like not being required to install "all the volume spacers" in the air shock to achieve the ride characteristics I have in stock configuration.
FWIW- Cascade offers a link to update the previous model to nearly the same / very similar to the 2020 I purchased.

To your point- I'm riding an air shock, but I may choose to try a coil too.

I may be a statistical outlier in that I am a bigger dude- 6-4, 245#. I'm not a pro level rider, but for my size, the additional progressivity that the cascade link offers opened my bike buying options. RAAW is even going to far as to offer two different rockers; one for lighter riders and one for heavier riders.

Treks (especially early DRCV era) are a perfect example. Wallows always, bottoms out on drops...but it feels smoooooooooooth in the parking lot and over that one patch of roots it will get ridden over.

A bike designed 100% for the world cup or freeride people will feel harsh and hard to maneuver for Joe Dentist.

 @NorCalNomad: I agree. I’d say those folks should be on less travel with progressive leverage rates too
  • 1 1
 Because they want their design to work for a 120lb fly weight and a 220lb bruiser with the same limiting air shock. These linkages are great and all, but to achieve a decent sag number your spring rate is going up significantly. A lot of air shocks are at the limit or near it for anyone whose weight starts with a 2. I’m only 205 kitted up and some bikes with a cascade components link I would need a 600-650lb spring or well over 240-250psi to keep the bike pedaling decently.

I wish they worked on the other end of the leverage curve. Let me keep a spring rate that won’t put excess wear and tear on my shock and give me the bottom out support I need. I don’t care about the extra few mm of travel honestly.
  • 6 2
 Time is money. I'm fortunate enough to ride with the Cascade guys and see first hand that they spend a TON of time on design and testing. Spending that much time and money on one aspect of design can't make financial sense for bike brands. My Sentinel link is amazing.

 @thechunderdownunder: I'm "only" ~100 miles in so far, and still coming to terms with the additional 3"+ of wheelbase. Overall I am very pleased, both with the performance and the parts spec; I bought the XO in Loam Gold. I've not had an FSR bike ever (Bullit, Giant, Yeti, Pivot, now Transition) and I was pretty hesitant to order it without a test ride because the last FSR bike I rode was pretty awful. Thankfully my concerns were unfounded, because in spite of my size 245#, and it's weight 32#, it climbs really well; so much so that I've PR'd a number of climbs. And I'm NOT a climber. LOL

 @IllestT: Exactly. Bikes are built with profit in mind but it's only achieved through compromise and obligations

 @JSTootell: It doesn't make anything worse. It is only an improvement. Why is that so difficult for some of you chowder heads? You guy baffle me with these questions about "why wouldn't the bike maker make it like this in the first place?" Ask yourself why Specialized didn't come out with the 2020 Enduro in 2012? It is something we call progression. Some people...clearly not you dorks,,,but SOME people can look at something and think of a better way. They involve themselves in the science behind it and spend exhaustive hours trying to improve something. We are lucky enough in this industry to still have people that do this instead of the companies just putting out a "new improved" model and relegating last years bike to the obsolete bin. I bought the Cascade link for my Sentinel and it has made that bike incredible. There are literally ZERO downsides to this other than the cost.
  • 3 4
 @garrisond5: So are you saying that @Jonzi: and @DHhack: are wrong? Sounds like there is a downside.

EVERY improvement has a downside. Maybe that downside doesn't affect you. Example: I am 140 pounds, so this link would work for me. Of course, I am riding an E29 with a full coil setup and am not interested. But I was curious and I am glad you are here to give your excellent commentary.

I can buy a full Ohlins suspension for my car. Ford could have offered that from the factory, but probably would have added several thousand dollars. BAM downside.

My XC bike could be full suspension instead of a hardtail. It would cost and weigh more. BAM downside.

You see. There are downsides, even if I am a chowderheaded dork, to an aftermarket part. Maybe that part improves things that you find to be weaknesses.
  • 6 1
 I mean, this is press release from Cascade themselves. Of course they are only going to state that their link drastically improves the bikes, with no adverse side effects. I'd say Kona made choices that optimized different parameters compared to what Cascade components put more emphasis on. I'm sure changing leverage ratios comes at a cost. The new leverage ratios will activate the damping side of the shock more I'm guessing. More harsh initial and mid travel? I dunno, but take in to account that Cascade is ultimately trying to sell a product and of course they will make it sound like the 300$+ link will change your bike only for the better.
  • 8 3
 We are lead to believe that most big bike companies have great engineers, and riders testing out prototypes. I dont think this is the case. A number of companies just type in orders, an colors ways to a Asian manufacturer.

Within a week of owning my last bike, i knew something was wrong with the shock tune. And eventually worked out, after 2 different shocks an custom tunes. That the leverage ratio was all wack an couldnt be fixed. ( Cascade Components now do a fix, for that model bike. Which sounds awesome buy the way)

Numerous big bike companies are putting in minimal design effort, and marketing for maximum returns. Its a small business i guess, and isnt space engineering.

 @Bullit-Boy: I Just sold my 2020 specialized Enduro since I bought it to race with and there are no races this year. It was one of the best climbing bikes I have ridden, despite its 34lb heft with tires coils and Cush cores.

 @up-left-down-right: this was kona's first ever carbon mtb, so it's probably not perfect but I doubt they did minimal effort
  • 1 1
 @JSTootell:
By increasing the progressivity, it changes the bike to a more coil-oriented set up, and less air. Air shocks have progressivity built into them. Coils are more linear, therefore bikes designed for coils have a more progressive linkage curve, and bikes designed for air shocks have a more linear curve.

Other areas it has been an improvement but tighter corners due to the longer wheelbase took more effort. I've actually done more uphill PRs since adding it than DH.

 Well lets not let facts and data get in the way of bullshit. In blind testing the best pros might be able to feel a difference but they wouldn't necessarily know which is which.

German ski magazine proved this years ago when they did back to back ski tests with fleets of fully branded and blank skis. All companies participating had to participate in both tests. The skiers were their German Interski team of elite ski instructors.

The results of the tests were completely different. Skiers could not correctly identify the various brands and models of the blanks. They had an ID code and it was a double blind test. Skiers nor those conducting the tests knew what the blanks were.

so yeah, 98% of the improvement is imaginary and fleeting. Why satisfied customers in the wild need a new parts fix every week.

 @davemud: No you can't hire your own tester and have it be the same. That's why in any scientific paper they site where the funding originated from. Study's funded by the people they benefit tend to not be taken as seriously. That shouldn't need explaining. Maybe we did ask PB though... Maybe we did ask some other media outlets as well. They don't just up and do stuff like that because you ask them and that's just life. But why is it so hard for you to believe that nothing can be improved upon? We definitely didn't hit the pinnacle of the sport ten years ago and just sit there because nothing could be bettered and the industry isn't going to do that now either. Back to your ski analogy. Why do powder skis as they are exist today? Because McConkey thought of the Spatula. There will always be people pushing the envelope when it comes to design. Like with the powder skis not everyone necessarily needs a link, but there are those that will benefit greatly. Now if you'll direct your attention to the just recently released Stumpjumper you'll notice it's kinematics are very similar to those of our Stumpjumper link for the now previous generation. Is Specialized full of it too?

 Seems like they meant to say that an aftermarket shock cheaper than 352USD won't improve the suspension as well as this rocker link will. Hard to tell obviously. What if you already have a good shock and have it custom tuned by Push or the likes, will it still be worse than this link upgrade? Not saying it is one way or the other but at least it is a bit of a commitment whichever you choose. Then again same goes for choosing a full suspension bike in the first place.

 Marketing secret: Barring any objective measurement of "better", things don't have to be *better*, they just have to be *different*.

 It is better though if you own this bike and are riding it hard. Someone who isn't riding gnar on a 153 probably won't have any issues, butt the bike is too easy to bottom out. So this link really is better because it fixes the only problem the bike has

 @maybemarcusking: 100%......love my 153 but the bike runs best around 33% sag. With that sag it bottoms all the time. I had it full of tokens but the bottom of the stroke was waaaay to ramped and I was getting bucked a bit on steep lines with bigger compressions. Im down to one spacer and most of the time it feels great - would love to see how this runs with no spacers.

 I second that- it was like getting a new bike. I could have spent around $1000.00 for an ext storia or Push 11-6, neither of which would fix the bike's leverage curve. Can't speak on the links for other bikes, but for the V1 Sentinel, the CC link makes a huge difference in feel and performance.

 Same. I'm on the ally 2018 Sentinel with original DPX2 shock and I've been able to drop 20psi out (which was overinflated to minimise bottom out) and down a spacer size. I haven't bottomed out and it feels much better in small bumps. The slightly lower sag is the icing on the cake avoiding some previous pedal strikes from it sitting up a it.

I'm a huge fan.

 I'm in the indifferent category. I've said with a laugh to my friends at how stupid I was for dropping $300 on it as if it was going to suddenly make me WC level rider. One of the best things about it is that it raised my BB and now I have fewer pedal strikes. Could also be my wallet is $300 lighter so I sit higher in the stroke ba-dum-chi. The link has its merits and small bump does feel improved, mid stroke feels good and I get to say I have 190mm of travel on a Nomad, so that's cool. For the first time in 5 months the 10 day forecast is under 100 F and I'll be more willing to go to our chunkier trails and do some same day back to back testing.

 "However, the link creates a more notable improvement than any other alteration you can make to the 153’s rear suspension and comes in at much less than the price of a shock."

Damping doesn't matter? If you don't have a shock with all the damping adjustments and/or a custom tune, then this link, while being awesome, is _NOT_ a better upgrade than getting a shock that can be fully dialed in to you and your riding style.

Could maybe argue it's the best for the price, however, it's way easier to sell a take-off shock than it is to sell a take-off stock linkage, so the net price isn't necessarily that much less than a new shock.
  • 5 1
 I have a CC link on my 2018 Sentinel. Had the DHX2 custom tuned before I bought the link. In this case, the custom tune was like a band aid for the Sentinel's leverage curve. Even thought the shock was tuned for me it still did not fix having to choose between oversprung/less small bump compliance or undersprung/blowing through travel.

You're right, there's no way I could sell the stock link on it's own.I figure when I'm done with this bike I can sell it with the CC linkage to give it some more value, or put the stock linkage back on and sell the CC link to another V1 Sentinel owner.
