Polygon, the Indonesian Bicycle brand has come with a complete range of 2023 models in India. The top end MTB range is the Siskiu; Full Suspension Mountain Bikes. We got the opportunity to test ride the Polygon Siskiu D6 29 (2023) and here is what we thought.Weight: 15.8kgs
Usage: Sport/Trail/XC Racing
The Polygon Siskiu D6 29 (2023) is built on a full Alloy frame. This bicycle is built for cross country and hardcore trail rides on the roughest of terrains. The frame geometry is aggressive yet comfortable to ride thanks to its low and slanting top tube. This low top tube also makes sure there is more standover clearance which makes it safe when riding on bumpy trails.
The Suntour XCM boost front suspension fork comes with a massive 120mm travel, which functioned smoothly during the test ride. The Suntour Raidon LO Air rear suspension comes with a lock-out which reduced the suspension’s work rate by 80% thus making it useful for flatter trails.
This XC Full Suspension MTB which we test rode came with Orange as the primary colour with Black as the secondary colour. The gloss finish paint job quality was shiny with elegant graphics. The internal cable routing for the gears not only made the Bicycle look neat but also protected the cables from dirt.
The gearing on this XC Trail Full Suspension MTB is handled by a 10-Speed Shimano Deore rear derailleur. This 10-Speed derailleur was smooth and precise in shifting during the test ride and was suited well trail rides which require constant change in speed. This 1x10-Speed drivetrain gave enough depth of speed for steep climbs on trails and also quick accelerations. The Deore Rapid Fire shifters were easy to control this 10-Speed gearing system.
Shimano’s MT201 Hydraulic Disc brakes are top end Performance brakes specifically made for trails. These brakes on the Siskiu D6 activated with feather touches and transferred the braking power accordingly in a balanced manner.
The Entity Sport Alloy handlebar with its 760mm width at first looks very long but this helps in keeping the Bicycle in full control on fast trail rides and races with sharp corners.
The Siskiu D6 rolls on a pair of Deli 29” x 2.25” MTB tires. These tires were heavily treaded with enough rubber compounds to keep the tires safe from smaller punctures. The 29” circumference helps with fast rolling on the roughest of trails.
The Entity Void Saddle was ergonomically designed specifically for cross-country trails with the perfect length and width.
This Full Suspension MTB is installed with performance packed components like the Deore 10-Speed drivetrain and powerful Shimano Hydraulic Disc brakes. The 120mm front suspension and smooth rear suspension made the ride less bumpy and gives the rider full control on fast trails. Priced at Rs.1,09,990 (as on 11th March 2023) the Polygon Siskiu D6 29 (2023) is the perfect choice for anyone looking to buy a Full Suspension MTB for trail rides or cross-country XC trail races.
