Designed to handle the burliest and most rugged trails, the N9 will gobble up steep, technical lines, while maintaining the ability to spin around and power up switchbacks for another lap of chasing adrenaline rushes. The N9 takes a step up in performance from the N8 with a combination of parts and technology designed for bigger hits, faster riding, and more nimble handling. A new lightweight, hydroformed 6061 aluminum Boost Frame and longer 160mm(29er)/170mm(27.5″) is built around the Siskiu N, for better handling and performance.
By utilizing a one-piece linkage system, Polygon has been able to keep the frame weight down while reinforcing high-stress areas and reducing flex under heavy loads. The rear swing triangle also features a unibody pivot bridge that stiffens the rear wheel and provides you a lot more control when exiting high-speed corners and negotiating rock gardens.
The Boost design means that Polygon has been able to include wide 29mm rims with 2.6″ tires (27.5″ wheel) and 2.35″ tires (29″ wheel). The frame is finished off with a tapered headset, rear thru-axle, and internal routing for gears, brakes, and dropper seat posts. To complete the Polygon Siskiu N9, it comes with a TranzX dropper seat, 150mm drop for S-M, 170mm for L-XL, Entity Xpert cockpit, and TRP Slate 4 Piston Hydraulic Disc Brakes.
Built for power, a Shimano XT 1 x 12 drivetrain powers the N9 with a massive 51T rear cassette providing plenty of range to glide up those steep climbs. A single trigger shifter keeps things simple while providing smooth, quiet action and reliable chain retention (thanks to a single chainring and rear-derailleur clutch). The XT crankset is engineered for complete chain control. Each tooth’s thickness is precisely tolerance and controlled to work seamlessly with the Shimano’s chain’s inner and outer links eliminating the need for a bulky chain guide and continuing the clean looks of the bike.
Dampening duties on the N9 is provided by a Fox 36 Performance Boost front air fork. This is combined with a dependable Fox Performance Float DPX2 air shock on the rear with external rebound and 3 position compression. To give you loads of traction for climbs and hitting berms, the N9 is rolls on a pair of wide 29mm rim Entity XL2 tubeless-ready wheels and] the WTB Vigilante tires with a nice and wide 2.35″ to 2.6″ width.
The All-New Polygon Siskiu N9 will be readily available on all Rodalink Stores across Singapore by 19 June 2020. For test riding and viewing purposes, it would be best to locate the nearest Rodalink Branch!
