New in 2017

Evolink_140_swingarm_2_PB

The swingarm

The 2016 EVOLINK 140 and 150 had a small difference on the swingarm. It was the gusset between the chainstay and seatstay. The 140 was designed to be as an all mountain / trail bike but later we noticed that the 140 is much more capable than we originally thought. We decided to rethink the swingarm structure and we found out ways to make it lighter and stiffer. Then we decided to add weight back as a form of the gusset that was on 150. The gusset itself makes the swingarm much stiffer than the previous version. The new swingarm is same weight as the one we had on 140 in 2016 but it’s just stiffer.

Boost brothers

The BOOST rear hub standard has been around for a while and we are convinced about it. Also, we know that people still have 142 wheels. We designed a clever system which allows the user choose which standard he wants to use. The adapters for each standard are designed so that there is no compromise on stiffness and there is not a complicated bolt on systems that eventually come loose or even drop off. The system has a new hanger which works as an adapter as well. On the non-drive side there is a press fir adapter and for the 142 two 3mm washers for the I.S. mount.

The tune of the shock

On 2016 we used a low compression / medium rebound tune on Rock Shox Monarch. This year we are using L/H tune. The reason on this is that we found out that heavier and faster riders need more air pressure on the shocks. Monarch is a single tube shock and there is no way to externally change the high speed rebound. The rebound knob only effects to the low speed rebound. The shock can be placed other way round so the stanchion tube is covered from the dirt.

Colors

The signature color of the Evolink 140 is the Polar Blue but we have a limited stock of these special colors. The availability can be checked from the product’s purchasing page.

Foldable

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.

bottles4

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.
