EVOLINK 110 XC is designed for riders who want to ride long distances. The component setup is lighter and more durable than in the "110 TR". Roomy cockpit with upright riding position makes your weight more balanced between the axles which increases your overall pedaling efficiency and makes the bike safer and easier to ride. For the races you should just lower the handlebars to get more aero -type of riding position. Low standover gives rooms for your knees in technical climbs to balance the bike.
If you are looking for more trail oriented lightweight bike, check "110 TR" or "130 27.5+"
The sizing goes by 10cm increments of the bikers height. If you are in between the sizes, you should pick the smaller frame.
Founder of Pole Bicycles, Leo Kokkonen got fed up with airline hassle, bike racks and people complaining that they don’t have space in their apartments to store bikes. EVOLINK can be folded by just taking off the front wheel and one bolt in the swingarm. The Patent pending linkage allows you to turn the swingarm over the front triangle.
When the rear wheel is removed and handlebar taken out you can fit the bike to oversized standard luggage so you don’t have to pay extra for bike when traveling. Many bikes get stolen from bike racks but when you put the bike to the trunk of your car the bike theft needs to learn new tricks to get to your bike.
Two bottle mounts
EVOLINKs are equipped with two mounting points for bottle cages. Optionally you can use the other cage for tool container.
Optimal instant centre (IC)
EVOLINK’s suspension is designed to work under pedaling load. It means that the bike doesn’t kick your feet while riding the trails. The suspension feels stiff while still active when pedaling.
Virtual Leverage Ratio
Virtual leverage ratio is designed to work also with air shocks. Air shock’s end stroke is naturally progressive. The leverage ratio “hook” is made to squeeze the last millimeters from the shock’s potential. Progressive suspension takes off the small bumps and gives the support when you huck to flat.
