There are quite a few forks out there that will take the punishment of a hard ridden Kona. My experience is very limited, due to budget, But I went for Marzochi Freeride dropoffs. Thanks to weight, had to change springs to the heaviest duty, but this medium priced fork has shocked me on what it has had to stand up to, and the lack of wear taken place in the 2 years I have had them.
Punishment it takes is on a tandem, ridden to the extreme off road, with 440lbs all up on it. Milage has been around 2,000, and as I say, the lack of wear, after its 2nd service is non existant. My only criticism is that it could still do with a stronger spring rate, as we do bottom out on the lumpy descents taken at full bore.
