The Safariland/Kona Patrol Bike 29er arrived for bicycle patrol officers at the International Police Mountain Bike Association (IPMBA) Conference that ended May 5. The company first unveiled the rugged patrol bike at SHOT Show in January.

The purpose-built patrol bike—the result of a partnership between Safariland and Kona USA—is available in both a 29er (29-inch wheels) and 26-inch wheel base.

The Safariland/Kona Patrol Bike is built with the Kona Race Lite 7005 aluminum frame that provides better durability. It arrives with Shimano components throughout, including the Shimano 30-speed drivetrain, SLX derailleur Roxshox forks, and hydraulic disc brakes for greater stopping power.

Other features include a sloping, padded Toptube with greater standover clearance; integrated rear rack for superior payload strength; tapered oversized headtube for improved stability; internal cabling system for non-obstructive riding; 29-inch wheels for improved stability; and an optional light-and-siren system from CycleSiren.

Safariland is offering a line of patrol-bike accessories that include Shimano pedals and shoes, Bell helmets, a hydration backpack system from Geigerrig, and bike tools from Blackburn.

Other accessories suited to bicycle patrol officers include lightweight Level II and IIIA armor from ABA and Second Chance, STX-finish holsters and slimline magazine pouches from Safariland, AccuMold and PatrolTek products from Bianchi, and batons from Monadnock.

New offerings include the Hatch Special Unit Bike Glove and Break Free Chain Lube. The entire line can be viewed at the Safariland/Kona Patrol Bike website.
