68 is pretty steep for the type of bike it is. Your Precept would benefit greatly from a degree or two slacker head tube angle. Depending on the axle-to-crown length of the replacement you're looking at, that is about what you will achieve. You will get conflicting advice here with a few people stuck in old-skool rule-of-thumb thinking on fork length; but the bike will easily handle it.

One caveat: If you are concerned about your frame warranty, you'd be well off to check with your shop and/or Kona to be sure going to the longer fork won't void the warranty.
