Travelling fronts with conical-shaped level sets are constructed for reaction-diffusion equations with bistable nonlinearities of positive mass. The construction is valid in space dimension 2, where two proofs are given, and in arbitrary space dimensions under the assumption of cylindrical symmetry. General qualitative properties are presented under various assumptions: conical conditions at infinity, existence of a sub-level set with globally Lipschitz boundary, monotonicity in a given direction.
