ALX ALLOY TRAIL ALUMINUM FRAME
Light & durable Hydroformed 6061 Aluminum frame features tapered head tube, rear boost thru-axle, 73mm bottom bracket, internal cable routing and optimized anti-squat kinematic with progressive suspension ratio.
MODERN TRAIL GEOMETRY
The Siskiu T handles the demands of a modern trail bike, striking the balance between high speed control and playful handling. Siskiu T models utilize slack head tube combined with short offset forks, longer frame reach and steep seat tube, improving stability and confidence at speed and on steeper terrain.
FAUX BAR SUSPENSION DESIGN
The FAUX BAR linkage is built around the One Piece Unibody Pivot Bridge that reduces the frame’s weight but also improves stiffness and reduces lateral flex. The pedalling performance is improved due to increased anti-squat and the suspension is now more active thanks to a custom shock tune. The leverage curve provides a high level of progression while maintain sensitivity for small bump compliance.
BOOST FRAME AND WHEELS
Boost is the standard wheel and drivetrain specification that opens the opportunity for improved frame geometry with shorter chainstays, wider and stiffer suspension pivots, wider range of chainring options, as well as more clearance for bigger tires and wider, stiffer wheels.
FOX RHYTHM 34 BOOST FORK
34 is the ultimate trail companion. Featuring an EVOL air spring, GRIP damper, and a lightweight yet robust chassis, you can count on 34 to get up and down the mountain, every time.
FOX FLOAT DPS REAR SHOCK
Exceptional bump compliance meets exceptional efficiency. The Float DPS’ lightweight chassis, EVOL air spring, and dual piston damper with 3-position switch help conserve energy for when you need it most.
SHIMANO SLX M7100 1X12 SPEED DRIVETRAIN
SLX is ready to go wherever and whenever you want, whether it’s an all-day epic or local trail shredding with your buddies. It won’t let you down.
TEKTRO HD-M745 HYDRAULIC DISC BRAKES
High power and controllable braking system features front & rear 4 piston caliber.
5 YEAR WARRANTY ON FRAME
The Polygon Siskiu T delivers the ultimate value for money trail bike that modern riders have been waiting for. The latest evolution of the Siskiu Trail series opens any trail to any rider through encompassing progressive geometry into an attainable package. From all-day epics to hot laps of your local loop, the Siskiu T delivers confident yet lively handling on everything from punchy climbs to rowdy descents as you push the limits of traction.
Designed around Polygon’s Wheel Fit Size System, the Siskiu T features 29′ wheels on LG & XL frame sizes, MD size offers the choice of 29′ or 27.5′ and the SM size is exclusively optimized around the agility of 27.5′. The frame is designed to ensure a water bottle can be nestled well in the frame, meaning longer rides; Heck yeah!
The Siskiu T handles the demands of a modern trail bike, striking a balance between high-speed control and playful handling. Progressive geometry was vital to achieving this. The reach was lengthened 25-30mm on all sizes, and the trail has also been increased by a 1′ slacker head angle combined with short offset forks, improving stability and confidence at speed and on steeper terrain. The benefits of a steep seat angle can’t be understated, which is why the effective seat angle has been increased significantly to 76.5′ while the chainstay length has been shortened by 5mm to maintain agility. On the trail, the Siskiu T feels just as responsive and agile as the previous generation, but the overall ceiling of what the bike is capable of has been lifted.
The suspension is optimized around each wheel size; 29′ models feature 135mm of rear travel with 140mm forks while 27.5′ bikes have 140mm in the rear with 150mm up front. Polygon’s proven FAUX BAR suspension linkage featuring a One Piece Unibody Pivot Bridge reduces the frame’s weight while improving stiffness and reducing lateral flex on the rear shock under load. The bike’s kinematics maintain the poppy supportive nature of the previous generation while enhancing the climbing efficiency and small bump compliance. The pedaling platform is efficient thanks to the 10% increase in anti-squat, which has allowed a lighter custom tune on the shock to improve small bump compliance and enable the suspension to move more freely.
Seat tubes have been significantly shortened to allow for generous dropper post lengths, 150mm on SM and MD frames, and 170mm on LG and XL. The frame also features a hassle-free threaded bottom bracket, Boost axles for stiff and reliable wheels, and internal cable routing through the mainframe keeping the bike looking sleek.
Like the frame, the Siskiu T8’s component selection takes your trail time to a whole new level. Fox 34 Rhythm and Float DPS suspension, Tektro 4-piston disc brakes, and Entity Expert 35mm clamp cockpit provide the control you demand. The 12-speed SLX drivetrain is Shimano’s reliable workhorse delivering power to the trail through Shimano Boost hubs, tubeless-ready Entity XL2 35mm internal width rims, and 2.6′ tubeless-ready rubber. Upgrade from riding with tubes by simply adding tubeless tape, valves, and sealant to take your riding to the next level.
Here it is! The Siskiu T8 is your fun-filled machine that’s ready for everything you point at’ Any Trail, Any Rider. The trails are calling!
