2017 Polygon Xtrada 6.0 - 27.5 inch Mountain Bike (Black)

The new updated 2017 Polygon Xtrada 6.0 in black decal builds upon the success of the 2016 version of this bike, but with the addition of some new upgrades based on customer feedback.

Like all bikes in the latest Xtrada range, the Xtrada 6 now has 120 millimetres of travel on the front fork. The Suntour XCR fork on this bike however also features larger diameter 32 millimetre stanchions combined with magnesium lowers, which dramatically reduces the front end weight of the bike, this keeps the bike more balanced on drop offs and whilst cornering. .

Front end performance is increased again with the additional of a rebound adjustment. This allows you to control how quickly the fork returns to the neutral position – extremely important to maintain traction on fast descents.

The high end Shimano Deore trigger shifters and derailleurs will effortlessly click and push the chain up and down the massive 30 speed drivetrain. The 10 speed cassette features Shimano’s dynasys system which ensure perfect shifting even whilst underload. Should you ever want to upgrade, the bike is also future proofed and will easily accept a 1x or 2x upgrade.

When the time comes to slow the bike down, you'll be relieved to see the Shimano M355 Hydraulic Disc Brakes equipped on this bike. The M355 setup comes with a lighter aluminium lever, improved braking performance and quick & clean bleeding.

Entity have also improved their offering on the Xtrada 6 with lighter and stiffer components to ensure you have the maximum control at all times.

Whilst the Xtrada 6 certainly has all the off road credentials, it has not compromised around town, and throw on a pair of slick tyres can also be used as an efficient commuter. 

Please see video below for more information. Please note that the video shows the Silver version of this bike, however this particular bike is now in a new black decal that has just been released.

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.
