Durable and effective
Most of the parts for our urban bikes are from MTB-category. Handlebar is Truvativ Stylo 10 and the grips are from one of the top MTB brands, RaceFace. Saddle is custom made for Pole. It’s comfortable, light and durable.
Easy to ride and maintain
All Pole bikes are designed to as user friendly as possible. Most of this bikes maintenance can be done by water and soap. The rest of the maintenance is done by keeping the screws tight and chain rolling with small amount of lubricant. The kickstand is located near the rear axle to give more balance for the bike if there is weight on the rack. The frame is matte black to give the bike stealth looks when storing it in the city. Our empirical research shows that if the bike has bright colors it’s more likely to get stolen. Yet still the bike stands out with the unique form of the bike.
1 X 10 is easy and effective
10-speed MTB system is effective and easy system for long distance and also a hilly terrain. The 38 tooth chainring and 11-36 cassette gives you up to 30-45 km/h speed (at 70-105 cadence (rpm)) and you can pedal effortlessly even tougher uphills. We have selected SRAM MTB parts to suit the demanding needs of commuter rides because we know that it’s not possible always wash your bike and take the best care of the components.
We have selected Avid brakes to this bike because we have been using them in the mountains with confidence. If the brakes can handle three seasons in MTB use, they can handle longer in urban environments. Hydraulic brakes are durable solution to various weather conditions. We have tested the brakes in Finland where it is +36°C in summer and -36°C in midwinter.
