2017 Polygon Xtrada 3.0 - 27.5 inch Mountain Bike

Polygon is well known for manufacturing not only their own brand but also producing bikes for a multitude of other brands. In doing so they are able to draw on all the best concepts and technologies and put them into their own Polygon range.

Such examples of this accumulation of technology includes the direct mount derailleur - which is previously unheard of in a bike in this category. The direct mount  drastically reduces any chance of the derailleurs wrapping itself into the spokes, which is so common with regular derailleur hangers.

Polygon have also included a curved and hydro formed ALUTECH 6061 aluminium top tube, which not only reduces weight but gives the bike a more refined presence. The gear cables are now routed inside the frame and feature end-to-end outer cables, this makes the Xtrada 3.0 frame more appealing to the eye and also dramatically reduces the servicing period as gear cables are protected from the elements. Additionally, the frame features rack mounts which allows you to easily attach racks or baby seats you may need. 

Specifications wise, at the front end of the bike. the SR Suntour XCM suspension fork has now been increased to 120mm of travel with the option to lock it, using the new Hydraulic Speed Lockout – supremely useful whilst riding on road or up hills..

Beautifully balancing performance and durability, the Polygon Xtrada 3.0 uses a Shimano Acera drivetrain to deliver 27 Speeds, capable of tackling even the steepest of hills. This is combined with upgraded Shimano Hydraulic disc brakes which provide industry leading braking power, especially in wet and muddy conditions.  Lastly the Xtrada 3.0 rolls on a set of alloy double wall rims with premium branded Shimano alloy hubs keeping the wheels together.

It’s this combination of all of these durable components that ensures the bike remains a true performer for years to come, whether it’s on rough trails, or for those trips down to park or beach.

All of our bicycles come with a Free Pro Build valued at $99. This means that your bicycle will be pre built by our professional mechanics. For your convenience, safety and comfort all our bikes are fully assembled prior to delivery. The bike is then packaged back into a box for secure shipment.

 

When your bike arrives, all you have to attach is the front wheel, the handlebar and pedals, everything else has been done – the headset has been adjusted, wheels trued, pedals and seat post greased, brakes and gears calibrated, and the tyres have been pumped up (please note upon arrival, in some cases you may need to add more air to tyres).

Most companies simply sell you the bike as it comes from the factory, which will require significant know-how to get your bike on the road. Currently we are the only Australian company providing this service, and have the 14 day test ride to back it up.

How does my bike arrive? Bicycles Online

All the tools required to assemble the bike are included. 

Please note, that all bicycles whether purchased online or instore, are mechanical devices and need to be serviced regularly to ensure proper functioning. New gear and brake cables, will stretch during the initial bed-in period, and will need to be adjusted after approximately 150-300km. 

Whilst your new bicycle will have already gone through our Pro Build process, you will still need to complete some minor final assembly steps when you take your bicycle out of its box.

Please follow the video playlist below to correctly complete the setup of your new bike:

 

Assembly Time:

  • 10-15min - You have assembled bikes before
  • 15-25min - You are mechanically handy
  • 30-40min - Never assembled a bike and working with tools isn't your thing

 

Unboxing your bike:

Start by carefully opening the top flap to expose the contents. You will see the bike with plenty of protective packaging and next to the rear wheel, the saddle & seatpost, a small cardboard box where your pedals, tools, bell and reflectors are. If you ordered any other products with the bike, it is likely they were placed on the bottom of the box as well. Remove all the loose items before pulling the bike out of the box and gently placing it on the floor.

Keep the box and all the protective packaging found on the bike in case you choose to change frame sizes, upgrade/downgrade the bike, or return the bike for a full refund under the 14 Day Test Ride Policy.
