I'd love to here some impressions on it. Components - Brakes, It was sticky off the top and never seemed to break in. The Addix Soft Magic Mary tires are a nice choice at any price of bike and while I'd personally choose the heavier Super Gravity sidewalls I think Schwalbe's 1.5x ply SnakeSkin sidewall is the best choice here. As a former 'core Shimanophile, it's hard to process living in a world where XT isn't the measuring stick but SRAM's GX drivetrain is both excellent and legion. Waiting on metallic pads for the the Guide T's for the final verdict, but the brakes may be the only item that needs to be swapped in the end. 2019 Polygon Siskiu N9 29 Bike $ 2,999.00. I'd prefer to see 29 x 2.6" rubber, but even staying with the narrower rubber, the Siskiu is beyond worthy of tires with better sidewall support. The grips scare me, the saddle pisses me off, the lack of tape on the rims is cheesy, and the brakes are going to get replaced by anyone riding this bike to the potential of a long travel 29âer. Polygon has frame-only options for carbon bikes but not the Siskiu. More notably, these longer-travel 29'ers have enough suspension capability to sort out the trouble their aggressive geometry will lead a rider into â an increasingly common complaint associated with long-and-slack 120-140mm travel bikes. These folks do not care that industrial designers like the look of straight tubes. In my personal purchase history I have had very mixed experiences with the concept of 'test ride and then decide' when it comes to choosing bikes I love. But GX is maybe more than that? The current trends in suspension kinematics give them similar seated pedaling performance to shorter travel trail rigs and weight differences are more dependent on rubber than anything else. Kona Process 134 Supreme â Long Term Review, Rocky Mountain Growler 40 - Budget Review, Introducing the 2021 Santa Cruz Nomad XO1, [Forum] Council Workshop-Seymour Trails Strategic Plan, Lazer's new Jackal MIPS MTB Helmet: Reviewed. If I was going to pay for a damper upgrade from Fox it would be FIT4. If youâre a casual biker, this difference of up to a kilo will probably wonât be significant. The suspension layout mates very well with the Fox DPX2 shock. Introducing the all new Siskiu D7 â an all round XC trail bike that can handle everything from your fun local trails to all day Alpine epics. Back to that 75Â° effective seat angle for a moment. Equally, they've chosen not to go the splash-the-cash route by hiring a long list of known riders like other online brands of which YT and Cube are probably the best examples. Singletracks published a thorough post on the Polygon Siskiu T Series trail bikes last winter, and the brand is back with the N-series, which offers longer travel and a more robust build. Photo: AM. Dear Uncle Dave: How do you Keep a Secret Bike, Secret? At 5'9" I think you got into the small band of people who fit the large.Â. I'm not actually fully committed to the current geometry trend of all the reach with a really steep seat tube angle and I have to say the Siskiu fits like a glove with a 40mm stem. Not the first time I've heard a similar thing about TRP brakes in general (Quadiems particularly a few folks mentioned it to me). I'd like to see a 170mm on the larger sizes. Now youâre on the hook for a pair of brakes where it would have cost almost nothing to get Code R brakes with the bike. I regularly used the Siskiu's shock platform for long climbs, but the bike is surprisingly proficient going up with the DPX2 shock wide open considering how plush it is descending. Personally, Iâve backed off to 170mm. Thanks;Â Effective top tube length matters too! I think I am worthy of the Entity ASSault saddle challenge! For all the specs, here's the link to the 170mm/170mm 27" and 160mm/160mm 29" Polygon Siskiu N9. I was very happy with the fit of the size large Siskiu but it is indicative, with modern geometry, of how necessary it is for companies to add more sizes as the range of optimum stem lengths has really shrunk to 35mm-50mm stems. Effective seat angle for the XS of the same bike probably should be closer to 74. ... Main reasons are price and Shimano drivetrain at comparable weight for an alloy frame. Tags: An aggressive, agile, and fast bike for the rider who wants to defeat their personal limitations all â¦ Polygon Siskiu N9 - anyone ride one? The bad set had a good firm bleed at the levers. I am comparing the brakes to two really powerful four-piston systems I'm currently riding - the Hayes Dominion and Formula Cura4 - and even in those cases, a big front rotor makes sense for this application. And thinking about the 210 is definitely just a luxury, I'd be totally fine one a 170-180mm post.Â, I have short legs though, so I can see for example the 419mm seat tube on my ripmo AF being a little too extreme the other way. Schwalbe's Magic Mary in their Addix Soft compound and lighter SnakeSkin sidewall option is a great stock choice at any bike price. In TRP's defence, they bill the Slate brake as being for 'Trail' usage and Polygon has done them a disservice by selling them on a 160mm travel 29'er. If I was building a custom frame, it would have a 30mm longer wheelbase which I'd accomplish through slightly longer chainstays, a slacker headtube angle (HTA), and only a touch longer top tube. Polygon Bikes, Get the latest industry news direct to your inbox. For me that means Schwalbe Super Gravity, Maxxis DoubleDown, WTB Tough Casing, etc. S$1,200 Share 78. One way to improve traction and comfort with a less capable fork spec is to upsize the tires and I think there is a strong argument for a 2.6" Magic Mary on at least the front of this bike. But despite being slightly longer, I think because it only sags up front, the STA feels super steep and I actually run the seat well rearward or center. Polygon Siskiu line updated to 2021 models, whats everyone's thoughts? Not the first person to mention this, and I've heard similar feedback about the Quadiem, so I do have to wonder if there's a QA/QC thing going on.Â Â, Did you notice a big difference swapping from the TRP rotor to a Centerline? Along with the (sadly) usual cheap but required upgrades. It's just a bit kinky. PLUS half of your 29er, Introducing the 2021 Santa Cruz Nomad XO1, [Forum] Council Workshop-Seymour Trails Strategic Plan, Lazer's new Jackal MIPS MTB Helmet: Reviewed. With the Siskiu N9, a bike that would be purchased online by the vast majority of Polygon's potential customers, there is little nuance. Specifications Product Polygon Siskiu D7 Bike Model Year 2020 Riding Type Trail Rider Unisex Sizes and Geometry SM (27.5â³), MD (27.5â³), MD (29â³), LG (29â³), XL (29â³) Wheel Size 27.5â³ (650b), 29â³ Frame Material Aluminum Frame Material Details ALX XC alloy, one-piece linkage Rear Travel 120mm Rear Shock X-Fusion O2 Pro RL, 190mm x 45mm [â¦] Beef up the tires and brakes and service the fork and this is potentially an entirely different review even with having to wear my Camelbak. Well, except I wish this was the new 5-spd version. Polygon's welds and forgings look great all the way around. As much as I like oddball stuff, at 6'0" on a bike with a 475mm reach and a 430mm seat tube complete with 210mm dropper the geometry on this thing just doesn't compute for me. Hence the M/L comment. I have a good seated position for generating power on flats or climbing and only the steepest uphills had me choking up onto the rivet or standing to hump over the apex. But what about price? Same way Iâve ended up on a 780mm bar. Dear Uncle Dave: How do you Keep a Secret Bike, Secret? Many times, as we tested this bike, we found ourselves asking "how can we justify spending any more than this on a bike?" Faux Bar: "Polygon's Faux Bar suspension system on the Siskiu T was created to give you a bomb-proof design that will require a lot less servicing and maintenance, thus allowing you spend more time on the saddle. Curious, if you don't mind saying, how much do you weight and what are you comparing them too? As examples, Guerrilla Gravity and Cotic Bikes both present possible bottle locations that Polygon could R&D that wouldn't require them to change to the Siskiu's vertical shock orientation. The chain is a KMC X12 which is arguably an upgrade over GX. My personal suspension bike is a large Marin Alpine Trail 7 and the two companies share the same parent co. and factory and the geometry is very similar. Free shipping on orders over $50 (continental U.S. only). Oh, and before we go any further, no, no it does not fit a water bottle in the main triangle. Arguably at 5'9" with T-Rex's ape-index, I should be saying that exact thing about a size medium frame. Min-Maxing Considering the price, some riders will have money left for upgrades. Same story as the Polygon. I learned quickly that the stock grips are a terrible liability for a company relying on the average home mechanic to assemble their bikes. 470 is a great length for a large frame imo.Â. Riders wanting a current, but mainstream, geometry experience will want to size up and push their saddle forward. 29er, Also I donât think itâs $1300 better. Shimano four-piston sintered brake pads and an 8" rotor are mandatory upgrades. Mega-steep STA makes even very long Reach bikes feel small seated. I'd definitely have zero complaints if this bike came with the MT5 (or Trail Sport) or the Code R in terms of balancing a budget and braking power. As a big fan of industry-standard R&D (Rip-Off & Duplicate), I'd point Polygon towards ridegg.com for some ideas on how to squeeze a bottle into the main triangle on the next edition of the Siskiu without changing the shock configuration. What can I say.... it somehow works for this 230lb aSS... Ha ha..... Nice wrap up and recommendations needed for a machine that can machine it's straight ahead plowing potential. Weight: 35 lb 4.4 oz (16,000 g) Miscellaneous: Internal cable routing Weight given for size M without pedals Geometry adjustable via flip chip in rear shock mount: â Head tube angle and seat tube angle change by 0.5° â Bottom bracket height changes by 10mm Thread starter Crunch; Start date Jan 7, 2019; Crunch Squid. Anyone have one? Love data? I think doing a deeper dive on current geo trends itâs once again an example of bike designers taking the easy road of whatâs popular - like with fork offsets - rather than choosing spec/geo thatâs best for a given size or application. They are distributed monthly and used to weight your vote on polls. Effective seat angle for a XXL bike with 525mm Reach probably should be 81-degrees. Anyone got a Polygon Siskiu? Interesting. Right out of the box. If it was my own bike I'd be investing in a fast-engaging, high quality, rear hub ASAP because that's what I like and I find it makes a big difference to my climbing and technical-gnar riding. The potential that's unrealized with this bike is both impressive at the price and depressing at the same time. The tube set, forgings, and welds all look good as does the matte green paint with orange accents. I really have nothing to add to all the ink that's been spilled over SRAM GX. The TRP Slate are great feeling brakes that bring a decent bite once the stock pads are upgraded to a set of sintered Shimano pads - specifically the fin-less Saint/Zee pads. The Polygon has amazing potential as longer travel 29er platform. After the grips, a rotor and set of Shimano sintered pads are the next upgrades I'd make to the Siskiu. If you'll take that straight-tube aesthetic over a water bottle mount, are handy on the tools, and want to be shifting GX for the least outlay, then the Polygon Siskiu N9 is worth a look. Between my setup, the big wheels, and the rear suspension, I found the Siskiu to have a very planted ride, which I like being someone who tends to keep my tires on the ground. Only slightly less notable than the lack of an in-triangle mounting location for a water bottle is that the geometry chart indicates every size is a bit short on reach and the effective seat angles are too slack, particularly in large and XL. I fully support the shock orientation of the Siskiu, mind you. *One factor here is weight, and at 160-165 lbs, this editor is generally fine on EXO, TCS Light and other mid weight casings - Ed. It wants to get deep-deep in its travel, eat bumps, track through corners, and hammer up short, gnarly climbs only to dive back into tight steep rock armouring down the other side. Reviews. That's crazy talk. Both come from the fact that this is not a 130mm travel trail bike. This is just a matter of time as electrical tape works fine and costs nothing. I'd expect any shop would catch the issue but in my experience, this spec choice will put a percentage of their customers at risk of injury. GX, It may pedal like a trail bike, but a 6" 29er can get up to some pretty serious shenanigans when pointed down. Climbing out of the saddle, the Siskiu tends to use its travel more freely than other 150mm+ 29'ers I've ridden but I've thrown it out there on a few group rides and I'm apparently in a small minority of folks that care. !Â Â I get teased as I only ride Selle Italia SLR XCs on all my bikes.Â Â Bring it on!! FWIW I was happy with my set of Slate T4s even on the stock red pads, they were better with Shimano metal pads -- think Zee like power with more linear delivery and modulation; better than Guide R and T I've tried in the past.Â I had a second set of these brakes come OEM on a bike that was not good at all (especially the front), even with known 'good' pads and a full brake fluid purge and bleed. Did I mention it's 2800 USD? It takes some time for your body to learn to just take the amount of travel needed for whatever's ahead. Even if the Siskiu purchaser is still running tubes they're going to want to pull the tires off and tape the rims in place of the stock strips covering the spoke holes. Loving mine so far. Select options. It's either the Siskiu N9 or the Canyon Spectral AL 6.0, but that thing isn't available until late April. Given there similarity itâs hardly surprising that both bikes have similar geometry too, but the Polygon actually has as steeper seat â¦ Polygon siskiu D5 M 27.5 Tags: Look at that... thereâs room for 6x sizes in between. I was excited when I noticed the 27" sizes of the Siskiu N9 come with the 2.6" version of the tire, but alas the 29'er comes spec with the 2.35 which again is the more universal choice. An aggressive, agile, and fast bike for the rider who wants to defeat their personal limitations all â¦ I find 75-76Â° allows power on flats and regular climbs and then bending my elbows and sliding forward on the saddle gives me the extra power I need when the grade is closer to ascending a wall. I had an impossible time finding the right air pressure to balance support and bump absorption. N9, It doesn't measure up to their claim that it's designed to be "ridden in the most demanding of conditions" but it could. I like the feel and length of the TRP Slate's lever blades. 62,178 . Is GX Eagle the standard against which all other mountain bike drivetrains are now measured? With my litany of 'blahs' all accounted for ,the Siskiu was a capable descending bike but it only truly shined, compared to modern 120mm to 140mm 29'ers I've ridden, in the roughest not-too-steep straightaways or on hits that took me deep into its travel as I was never fully comfortable opening the bike up for fear of not being able to slow it down or get the support I wanted out of the fork without having it feel overly harsh in other trail situations. My seated pedaling position is right about perfect on the Siskiu and Iâd only need a longer Reach if the STA was steeper.Â. This wedge is unfortunately and accurately named the 'Assault.' Saddle spec is not hard, if in doubt just follow Rocky Mountain's lead and put a WTB Volt on every mountain bike you sell from $1000 to $11,000+ and at least a significant percentage of your customers will be happy. I know folks who are hoping longer than 200mm posts are coming and folks that have gone back to 150mm.Â. Overall the sizing is kinda bizarre for most people unless you like 70mm+ stems or 100mm droppers. I'd challenge anyone who thinks I'm being over-critical of the Entity ASSault saddle to spend a few rides on one. But, at 2800 USD, with a full GX drivetrain, and looking at what else is out there, it's quite possible that a smart home wrench can pick up the Polygon, service the forks with fresh seals, swap to a set of powerful brakes, and install their preferred beefy rubber option and still make out with a lot of bike for the investment. The new Polygons look interesting. Polygon is available in the USA through bikesonline.com and originally this review process was going to include a build-up experience. Siskiu N9, I also have a large 2019 rootdown. Can you replace the rhythm damper with a grip2 damper? It's one of the only dimensions you can easily alter with no real effect on any other parameters.Â, I have two fairly new school bikes and an older one.Â, I have a large 2020 ripmo AF -475 reach, 76 deg STA, 632 ETT. These were just meh and it would be surprising that the QC/QA would be such that there's that much variation - but also not surprising. The 170 KS post it came with works quite well so far. In this case, it's 2800 USD for the package. Where I would be dropping more paper is a basic fork service and new seals right out of the box. Bikes. Traction and support. Photo: AM, Add the cost of brake adapter to the package as well. So something going on at the caliper. With an eye to the budget, I'd like to see Polygon swap these Slates out for a Code R or Magura MT5 system. But just comparing metal-to-metal with me assembling any bike in my basement, with my knowledge, with my tools, the potential v. price is full show if not full go. This Siskiu N9 was delivered to me built so I can't comment on how they come out of the box for consumers. Most people 6'0" want more than 456mm of reach, but sure as hell don't want a 520mm seat tube. 2020 Polygon Siskiu D7 Dropper post edition Bike $ 1,299.00. You can absolutely. The Polygon Siskiu N9 29er boasts an SRAM GX drivetrain, Fox suspension, good tires, solid geometry, and a nicely manufactured 160mm travel aluminum frame for 2800 USD. They are terrifying. All pistons seemingly extended and retracted with no issues, but there was just no bite. Eagle, I donât think you can look at Reach isolated from effective top tube length. Polygon, The Hot Garbage I'm not going to dwell on how dangerous the lock-on grips are and how absolutely crotch-murdering uncomfortable the stock saddle on the Siskiu were. Geometry is free! Check out these popular Dual-Suspension Bikes! I'm happiest in the 75-76Â° ballpark on a full-suspension bike so it's no surprise that it worked really well for me. I keep the saddle slammed forward of course but it's not terrible.Â, What this tell me is I'm probably more susceptible to how STA affects rear suspension operation/sag that anything else.Â, I think that with a long dropper you have to relearn a bit. There's a reason that my favourite, classic, best-feeling suspension bikes like the first edition Knolly Delirium-T and 2008 Specialized SX Trail use a similar shock configuration. There are a fair few moves I ride on my personal 150mm+ 29er, a Marin Alpine Trail, that I wouldn't hit on the Siskiu N9... ...but that came down to component choices entirely. These grips piss me off every time I think about them, especially since a lot of Polygon customers will likely be assembling the bikes themselves. 01-02-2018 #2. As much value as the Polygon Siskiu N9 presents, these hidden costs need to be accounted for. How much do grips that stay put, and sintered pads actually add to the shop floor price? I like the Magic Mary, I don't even mind the Soft compound v. the Super Soft, but please give me the support of that Super Gravity sidewall. With updated geo/leverage and 3K USD starting point including good suspension, I figured it would fit right in with some of these recent lower-price-point reviews. OK, makes sense. Would love it much more with more aggressive brakes.

The N9 jumps up to the 4 pistons TRP Slate hydraulic discs. Photo: AM. I donât know if there are any plans to review the AF. Next up on the mandatory upgrade list is the house brand Entity saddle. Enduro Bikes . I could fit a 170mm post on the Siskiu with a bit of room leftover (and think they should spec one on the larger sizes, as I said). And I say "were" because these are absolute throw-away parts. That's not the same thing as saying I wouldn't love to try an Angleset in there just for sh*ts-and-giggles, but set-up with around 23% sag front and 28-30% sag rear the geometry is Shore-worthy. The Polygon Siskiu N9 is an aluminium full-suspension enduro bike with a combination of parts and technology designed for the most demanding conditions. At the bare minimum, budget to replace the contact points straight away. More on that later. They killed Kona's unique looking, and awesome riding, 'Rocker' suspension Process lineup. Bikes - All Mountain, > " I'd call the size large frame a medium-large and some larger frame sizes are needed to accommodate taller riders", They'd need to change the proportions. Yeah, thatâs a beyond lame spec choice that makes you wonder if anyone at Ibis rides those bikes as intended. Buy 2021 Polygon Siskiu D7 27.5 (S ) 29 (XL) in Singapore,Singapore. Push on the saddle and it's obvious the Siskiu drives the shock as nicely as any linkage-actuated single pivot and it initializes more easily than many of the suspension designs optimized around water bottle placement. Features, *One factor here is weight, and at 160-165 lbs, this editor is generally fine on EXO, TCS Light and other mid weight casings - Ed. Considering I'm a buck eighty-five on the scale, I consider them necessary.

Polygon Siskiu N series is an aluminum full suspension enduro bike with a combination of parts and technology design to be ready to be ridden in the most demanding of conditions. November 6, 2020 by Admin Polygonbikes. Normally I'd be quite satisfied with a 2.6" tire, but the 2.8" rubber helped make up for the suspension fork's 'meh' performance. AJ reviewed the Ripmo for NSMB in 2018. The cables are a bit a mess as the bike was routed British style originally. I keep the seat slammed forward, I wouldnt complain if it was a degree steeper.Â. DH stoppers or don't make the bike is par for this category. Yeap, we're up in your social medias too. I can't recommend the Siskiu without some component swaps and, as it comes out of the box, many riders will be much happier on a shorter travel trail machine with modern geometry numbers. I rode a Ti-railed SLR - no cutout - for years high posting a hardtail and never felt ASSaulted. I would like to see every company going to size-specific seat angles that get steeper as they go up in size but until that pipedream becomes reality I hope at least a few companies don't jump on the 77-78Â° bandwagon for M-L sized frames. Photo: AM. I'm thinking RockShox Deluxe here, but there are a number of options that cost less than a DPX2 and are quality shocks. I've had great success with a set of Slate T4's on the stock red pads even (but with SRAM centerline rotors), so much so they've ended up on my park bike. I don't have any issues with TRP rotors but the stock brake pads suck. For the price, I have no qualms with the wheels other than they didn't come taped for tubeless. I like the stability of the 440mm stays and combined with the 65.5Â° HTA the platform is nicely balanced. NSMB's First Impressions: Polygon Siskiu N9 29er Siskiu N The 150-160mm travel 29'er is quickly becoming the bread-and-butter platform for medium-and-taller riders in â¦ For someone looking for the bones to build an awesome bike the $2800 (USA) + upgrades could deliver an awesome machine for the money (especially doing all my own wrenching) but trying to ride it stock has its frustrations. Similar enough in fact that I'd say most of the difference in the basic fit comes down to fork offset. I covered it full throttle in my Siskiu first look. I've heard some very strong arguments, when it comes to mountain bike drivetrains, that GX is now the standard against which all other drivetrains, including those from much larger Shimano, are measured. Swapping forks doesn't make financial sense, so if this was my bike I would have had the Rhythm serviced and then installed a set of the better Fox/SKF seals that come with their Performance and Factory forks and that would have made a big difference. And hey, look at all the upcoming reviews it could have been in. I laughed at DUB 28.99mm cranks too, but the bottom bracket life is killing anything SRAM was doing with 24mm or 30mm spindles. I sh*t you not. Is anyone still buying bikes that way? Polygon can't sell bikes based on a storied race history like Yeti, or from being developed with some of the most aggressive riding around in their backyard like Rocky Mountain, or because they have a massive, well established, dealer support network like Trek. 478 reach, 76 deg STA, 637 ETT. I give bike companies a wide berth on saddle choice because touch points are a matter of preference but I'll bet if one hundred riders tried this seat none of them would choose it. As it was, out of the box I ran the low-speed compression open all the time, the rebound fairly slow, and the big WTB Vigilante made a significant difference for traction. It's a long travel, 160mm front & rear to be precise, 29'er Enduro bike that looks pretty damn good and has neutrally-modern geometry. 3 mins ago - Enduro/AM - The Weight Game: 18 mins ago - Wahoo integration: 21 mins ago - Evil Owners Club: 29 mins ago - Rock shox suspension breaking I don't know if I'll ever come to terms with internal routing - especially internal brake routing - but the Siskiu is pretty clean. The Chase Bike Vest is my preferred way to transport H2O on a bike with not in-triangle bottle bosses.
