First Look: 2021 Polygon Siskiu T - Modern Geometry, Modest Price

Aug 26, 2020
by Daniel Sapp  

Polygon have updated their Siskiu T series of bikes for 2021 with revised tubing, updated geometry, and even lower prices. The bike is available in two different models, both aimed at delivering plenty of performance at a good value, with prices starting at $1,799 USD for a complete bike.

Through owning their own manufacturing facilities, Polygon claim they are able to control all of the aspects related to developing a bike, which helps them be more efficient, bringing more value to the person purchasing and riding the bike.

The new Siskiu T is designed around Polygon's "Wheel Fit Size System." The small size rolls on 27.5" wheels, the medium is compatible with both 27.5" or 29" wheels and the large-XL sizes are designed around 29" wheels. 29" models of the bike have 135mm of rear-wheel travel mated to a 140mm fork and the smaller wheels get 140mm of rear travel and a 150mm fork.
Siskiu T Details

• Wheel size: 27.5" (S, M) 29" (M-XL)
• Aluminum frame
• Travel: 140mm (27.5"), 135mm (29")
• 65-degree head angle (27.5") 65.5-degree (29")
• 425mm chainstays (27.5") 430mm (29")
• Sizes: S-XL
• Price: $1,799 - $2,299 USD

Polygon have their own factory, which gives them the ability to have a great deal of control in the development and manufacturing process of a bike.



Frame Details
The frame is now designed to fit a water bottle inside the front triangle on all sizes. The seat tube lengths are shorter than before, and there's a 150mm dropper post on the SM-MD and 170mm on the LG and XL. There is a threaded bottom bracket, Boost spacing, and internal cable routing throughout the main frame.


Internal cable routing and integrated chainstay protection on the Siskiu T.


Geometry
The Siskiu T's updated geometry sees the reach stretching an additional 25-30mm on all sizes from the previous model, measuring 460mm for a size Medium. The head tube angle is 1-degree slacker than before, measuring 65-degrees for the small and medium 27.5" frames and 65.5-degrees for the 29" frames. Chainstays are 425mm on the small and medium 27.5" wheeled setups and 5mm longer for the 29" edition. Seat tube angles measure 76.5-degrees across all models and sizes.



Suspension
The Siskiu T utilizes a linkage driven single pivot design built around a one-piece unibody pivot bridge which Polygon claim reduces the frame's weight while also improving stiffness and reducing lateral flex on the rear shock while under load. The kinematics of the bike are designed to be similar to the previous generation - poppy yet still supportive to keep climbing efficiency and small bump compliance. There is a new custom shock tune with lighter compression and a small reduction in progression which can be further tuned through the use of volume spacers.

The leverage curve is has been modified slightly from the previous version - still highly progressive yet more sensitive. The axle path has also been updated to be more rearward further into the travel, which should enhance performance over square edged impacts.


There are two different models of Siskiu T available, the T8 and T7. The T8 features a Fox 34 Rhythm Boost fork, Fox Float DPS shock, 12-speed Shimano SLX drivetrain, and sells for $2,299 USD. The Siskiu T7 has a RockShox Recon Boost fork, Rockshox Select Plus shock, and Shimano Deore 12-speed drivetrain. It sells for $1,799 USD.

 Polygon? Really? A well-thought, modern geo bike with SLX 12 spd at $2300?? Just when I thought 2020 couldn't get any worse...Polygon swoops in and totally saves the day! AND sweet paint jobs.. dear rest of the bike industry, PAY ATTENTION.

 Expecting instant down vote, but 500mm reach on XL isn't quite 2020.
  • 17 1
 @willdavidson9595: that would change the compression curve of the rear suspension, and probably the leverage ratio.

Also, leaving the top tube free of a shock mount allows for lighter tubing; the downtube already needs to be strong, so its a better place to mount the rear shock. This helps keep the weight & CoG low, and allows any flex/compliance to come from the top part of the bike, while the downtube/chainstays are stiffer, creating a better ride. Like a good pair of skis. Scott had a whole article on this when they released their carbon DH bike.

 @hamncheez: Assuming the compression curve and leverage ratio are perfect as is, plus, a slightly shorter link would give just about the same results.

Fact of the matter is, is that we all don't live in dry, perfect climates. Bikes need a spot for at least one large bottle.

Any company could build a good suspension design if they have the entire inside of the front triangle to work with. That is why I respect companies like Santa Cruz, Norco, Forbidden, Transition, and many others.

 @CasteelGilmore: I sold my enduro bike last fall, and so I took out from the shop a few different bikes to give different brands a try. Since they were all rentals they had either rhythms or Recons/Yari (the RS low end stuff felt better). The ride quality on the rhythms just sucked. I pretty much had to run the rebound all the way open to get front end traction on long descents and to keep the front end lively. It was strange to feel both a lack of grip and feel like the front end was stuck to the ground and hard to lift up or actively move around. I also had to run way more PSI than GRIP2 fox forks to try and keep it from bottoming out (but I wasn't able to play with tokens, so maybe that one could slide).

 Yeah! My current hardtail has a 400mm seat tube (so proper low top tube) and 460mm reach with a 63deg HA so sagged (120mm travel fork) that gives a geometry more or less comparable to what this bike has. Having loads of fun on mine, can imagine having loads of fun on this bike too. Personally I think a plain color looks more high end but obviously that would be nitpicking.

 Got the 2020 T8 model back in March. Had to go for the XL to get the reach that fit me. In my purchase review i said good bike but no bottle mounts and the seat tube angle could be a little steeper. 5 months later, 2021 model released - reach increased by 20-30mm across all sizes, now comes with bottle mounts, seat angle steepened.....i'd like to say they listened to my comments but i'm officially spewing, if only i'd waited.

 if going to the trouble of adding a pivot to the stays of the bike - why not have it on the chain stay? doesn't a dual link provide far more options for tuning the suspension than a single pivot?
  • 1 0
 I often wonder the same thing. Before the horst link patent ran out on chainstay pivots, there was a business case to avoid paying/infringing, but now that the patent is expired I don't see why everyone doesn't go that route. Having said that, with this design the main difference would be in how the suspension reacts to braking, and just from a quick eyeball analysis, I think the braking traits might be more preferable to some with the pivot where it currently is, as it will tend to squat under braking more. If you tweaked some of the other pivot points, along with a switch to a horst link, then that could change the picture though.

 I wonder why would they top of this model with XLS and a mid level shock. With that modern geo I'm sure they would sell if they had an extra model (T9) with a XT drive train/break and suspension upgrade. Just a thought.
  • 4 0
 It may actually be cheaper for them to not have a million options available. That said, you could say that Deore and SLX are close and they could instead spec the second model with XT. But then again, how is SLX holding anyone back? You're going to wear/break parts sooner or later, you can always choose to replace them with a higher spec if you really feel like. With how good drivetrains have become now, I suppose it is more the Fox suspension attracting people than it would be the drivetrain. And, even though I don't know the entire Polygon line up, I suppose they already have a higher end model in their line up, spec'd with higher end components. They don't want to parasite on what they already have.

  • 1 0
 @blackpudding: I always thought it was dropped with respect to the rear axle. Is it with respect to that line? That would take some math in case of a bike with different front and rear wheel diameter.

As for negative bb drop, reminds me of those old school big hitting freeride bikes Wink .
  • 1 0
 @vinay: Yes, it's always that line. For example check the geometry table for this Cotic hardtail frame. The BB drop changes with the fork length.

www.cotic.co.uk/product/solarisMAX#sizing
  • 1 0
 @HollyBoni: Sure? Of course the bb drop is going to decrease with a longer fork as the fork tilts the bike around the rear axle, effectively raising everything in front of the rear axle. So with respect to the axles, this number should drop. However, in the case of these stock Cotic bikes, front and rear wheels have the same diameter so the line you mention is horizontal and the drop with respect to this line is the same as the drop with respect to any of the two axles.

Orange doesn't quite clear things up as they work with bb height instead.
www.orangebikes.co.uk/bikes/switch-6-rs/2020

Santa Cruz however gives two numbers for their mixed size wheeled bike.

It isn't quite clear from the drawing, but I presume they simply give both numbers as bb drop with respect to the rear wheel (the small number) as well as the front wheel (the larger number).

Liteville has millions of options so I didn't dig into that, but lazy as I am I'd stick with the Santa Cruz measurements I've found here. In case of mixed wheel sizes, they just give both numbers.

 Actually, looks pretty different. Like a bossnut that's evolved for a few years. And gained bigger wheels and bendier tubes: calibrebicycles.com/bike/bossnut-3

 Greatl looking bikes. Just a shame that the rear tyre clearance is maxed out at 29x2.35.

 The spec sheet says both the 27.5 and 29 come with 2.6 tyres. Is that just for the front?

 Is this what they call dentist talk? Buying a complete new full suspension bike just as "spare"?

 @vinay: Smile No, I just think we need more than one bike if possible. I am quite hard on my bikes and they need a lot of downtime.
