Polygon: Tested by the best #polygonproteam
ALX FRAME
Built to last
MADE FOR ADVENTURE.

6061 triple-butted tubing is perfect for gravel riding due to its combination of reduced weight, increased strength, enhanced ride quality, and improved power transfer - ideal for ripping it up on gravel roads.

SRAM AXS
Tap and go
THE RIGHT GEAR.

The simplicity and advanced chain retention of a 1x drivetrain is ideal for gravel, and eTap AXS brings multiple options to the table. The XPLR & Eagle Collection hits the gearing sweet spot between tight jumps and wide range so you'll have everything you need.

EXPLORE MORE.

With a FLOAT EVOL air spring and on-the-fly compression adjustability, 32 AX delivers just enough tunable travel to take the edge off of wherever your gravel adventures may lead you.

ROCKSHOX REVERB
Seamlessly smart
A TOUCH OF GENIUS.

The wireless-electronic Reverb AXS™ is all Reverb, revamped with a controller you touch instead of a lever you throw. No second guessing. No delay. A refreshingly light touch of the controller's paddle offers instant engagement. A simple press of the paddle sends it down. Hit it again, it's right back up.

I really like how the new linkage design works! The rear end just glides through the rough sections while feeling stable and planted. The seated climbing position is also really comfortable and feels really efficient for a 170mm travel enduro rig. It has been an amazing opportunity getting to work with Polygon to help fine-tune the new Collosus to cope with the demands of Enduro World Series racing alongside Matt Stuttard and Dan Wolfe.
