Not only do they have high end performance road machines, they have also recently ventured out to gravel grinders and touring road bikes for the bike packers. Even for their higher end road bikes, they have made the effort to segregate them out into two series which are the endurance series and performance series so to cater to many different other riders. But of course, within each category, there is a bike to suit everyone.

With technology being such a big thing in the industry, Polygon has kept up with the technology game as fast pace as many other major brands. Technologies such as disc brakes on road bikes, and special linkage designs for the full suspension only Polygon has.
With how impressive it is already mentioned above, Polygon has also made their bikes a really value for money package for everyone. For the price one is paying, the specs and kit that comes with the bike, has remained one of the most competitive throughout the years we have seen. One example of how value money their bikes can be are actually their Siskiu mountain bike series. For their full suspension Siskiu series, price actually starts from below a thousand(SGD). There aren’t actually many brands out there that are able to make a competitively specced full suspension mountain bikes under the thousand mark, and this is what Polygon they themselves have achieved for us consumers today.
