Pole Bicycles - Eurobike Media Days Kirchberg 2016


Pole Bicycles is a young brand from Finland taking an arguably modern, or even futuristic approach to mountain bikes. The Nicolai Mojo GeoMetron was the first bike to really push angled boundaries and is available to order, but still has a niche and custom feel to it. Pole bring a range of production bikes to the table sporting similar geometric properties built into a range of bikes from an XC centric 110mm travel 29er to a 176mm travel downhill rig.

This Evolink 176mm makes Greg Minnaar's XXL Santa Cruz V10 look like a toy; the Pole in question trumps Greg's length with a 510mm reach, 1345mm wheelbase, 62º head angle and a 455mm chainstay, and that's only the frame with an 'L' tag. Marketing managers take note, your bikes are no longer long, low, and/or slack.




Pole Evolink Details:

• Alloy framesets
• Progressive geometry
• Evolink Suspension Design
• 27.5" / 27.5"+ / 29" wheels
• 110mm / 130mm/ 140mm / 150mm 176mm travel bikes

• Threaded bottom brackets
• Sizes: XS, S, M, L, XL
• MSRP Framesets: €2250 - €2450

This DVO equipped Evolink 176mm is priced at €6600 with a solid build including DT Swiss, Easton, Avid Code brakes and an X01 DH drivetrain. Expensive, perhaps, especially compared to German direct sale counterparts, but you won't find anything close to these bikes on any other website.

The Evolink suspension design provides a falling anti-squat figure through the travel...
Pole Bicycles - Eurobike Media Days Kirchberg 2016
... but a progressive leverage ratio.

Along with its ginormous geometry, the suspension kinematic differs from many other bikes. A dual link design is nothing new but instead of using this system to create funky curves or squat ratios, the instant center rotates almost perfectly around the bottom bracket creating a low anti-squat figure that falls through the travel with little pedal kickback. On paper, this will deliver suspension action which is uninhibited by chain growth and tension, giving more sensitivity when traveling through tumult. The downside to this is you might have to learn to pedal properly, especially if you're not friends with bob on the flat.

Pole's range of bikes includes 110mm, 130mm, 140mm, 150mm and 176mm travel options as well as 27.5", 27.5"+ and 29" wheel sizes. Each frame may look almost identical as many of the tubes and components are shared throughout the range, but there are a number of slight geometry differences and tweaks. The principles of the design stay the same, though, even the 12kg XC racer below has a 66º head angle and a whopping 535mm reach in XL.

It's not all about slack, though, seat tube angles on all bikes hover around the 77.5º range. Long 455mm chainstays are found on all bikes, which in a time where everybody is going for shorter stays, Pole have gone longer to try and keep fore/aft balance in check.

Pole all folded up.
Another neat feature of the Pole is that by removing the upper pivot bolt the bike can be folded. Easier to put in the car, house, or on your back for hiking up to some serious terrain.


Futuristic or foolish? Let us know what you think in the comments...

 Weren't the guys from santa cruz saying that below the certain head angle (63 degrees it was?) the fork flex more than it compress?
  • 14 0
 That would make sense. I doubt it flexes more than it compresses though. Might cause problems with extra bushing wear in the fork and maybe a little increased stiction
  • 5 0
 If that is indeed the case, then it would make sense to reduce the offset further rather than continuing to slacken the head angle. That would give a bigger trail figure without having the front axle so far forwards.
  • 5 1
 @natemeyer: no problem whatsoever on bushings
  • 3 0
 Not only have to contend with flex, but wheel flop as well. Or am I missing something here?
  • 2 0
 @threehats: I think only reducing the offset is not very ideal on the weight distribution but it will make the bike turn better for sure. Sebastian is running on a shorter offset fork at the moment I think.
  • 3 1
 @ernvil: not sure what you mean by wheel flop but actually the stress is going to more ideal dorection when the fork has a slacker angle.
  • 2 0
 @polebicycles: Yes, but that's the case when riding and hitting some obstacles, like rocks and roots. A slacker head angle puts more stress on a frame during landings, huck to flat kind especially. Am I right? Smile I don't know the exact numbers but would be great to know if benefits from going through rough terrain outweigh the risk of snapping the frame on a messy landing Smile
  • 3 0
 @GawiQ: We are talking about quite small differences in the real life situations. The material around the head tube, down/toptube shape, tube thicknessess and the headtube length makes more difference than the head angle itself. Also the fork absorbs more from the hit when the head angle is slacker.

Here's a video of slapping the 62° angle properly Wink

 @polebicycles: Nice to know Smile thanks for answer.
  • 1 0
 @GawiQ: @polebicycles says 62° is no problem and Santa Cruz / Greg Minnaar say slacker than 63° is not good anymore.
I guess we have to blame Fox for too much flex.
  • 2 0
 @squarewheel: Santa cruz has a huge sag which makes the frame numbers out of scale compared to ours. EVOLINK travel is 176mm so basically you end up with steeper head angle in full squish.

We haven't experienced any problems. I think that SC has just their own insights to their setup.
  • 12 1
 I love this! These bikes look very fun to ride, I have been looking for a low,long and slack bike without too much travel as I don't really need a 160/170mm bike for the terrain here in the Netherlands but I do love the stability and confidence inspiring nature of these bikes, especially because I like to ride really steep terrain.
Looks like I gotta start saving up for one! Excited for some reviews of this bike
  • 3 0
 I have been thinking about building custom frame with such angles. The Geometron is bit to expensive to me, mare Pole Wink
All modern bikes out there have long reach, but then for some reason the ST is 74 or even 73. Being 194 cm tall and extending the seat post to max. makes me hanging almost behind rear axle on steep climbs. Especially with 425 mm chain stays. Would love to ride one...

 @microfiz: haha! I just looked it up. The linkage is in the exact same configuration with the same shape links even. Of course it works differently so you couldn't compare the ride quality but its cool to see!

 @DragontalesDH: While it does look similar in general the locations of the pivots and the lengths of the links are very different when comparing the two

 There should perhaps be a nod to the conversations that took place between Pole and Chris at Mojo before they flipped their whole range to this geometry from very conventional numbers over one model season. They believed Chris' take on the advantages and adopted the principles and geo if not the suspension platform/design. Ignoring the paper geo for the GeoMetron as it's only a rough guide and very dependent on build.
Fair play to them for committing and Chris for being open about the goals of the source project(s)
  • 2 1
 and the prototypes made by btr...
  • 33 0
 We hade brief email exchange two years ago with Chris. Actually we were already on the geometry that we are using now and the topic with Chris was more about the energy usage of the rider with different geometries and suspension platform. Back then we were using the Polelink with totally concentric design and the prototype of the evolink existed. I haven't met Chris in person yet but I would like to. We think alike on a lot of stuff and why I contacted him was because I he didn't work with any bike companies. After few months after our emails he came out with Mojo Geometron.

BTR made the first steel protos before we had any contacts with our current manufacturers. Tam has good insights on bicycle design as well. The first bike had a lot of BTR:s insights because they know a lot about steel. The first prototypes are still running so BTR really knows how to make good frames.

I think it's important to share knowledge. There is still a lot to do Smile
  • 7 0
 @polebicycles: Totally agree and I apologise, the timing seemed almost too good....I had Nicolai build a custom with close to this geometry in 2013 before the GeoMetron which is how I came to work with Chris. It seems there were many coincidental conversations..started I think with the bravery of Mondraker. There is much to do I agree but I think we have reached some limits in terms of geometry for practical use within the constraints of a number of current components and tracks/trails.
It's good to see wider adoption and gradually we have less people calling this geometry 'Deviant' as it was by a Pinkbike journalist.

 Ive been on about their evolink 140 29er for a while. These things are the future! 64.5 head 480 reach 1284 wheelbase. Just hold on. Seb Scott from BikeRadar did a test ride and review and called it the fastest thing hes ridden. They have some good vids on YouTube too that explain some of their theories. Would love to have a spin on one! Excellent!

 What's with all the super long bikes? Why not just go up a size? A medium frame today has the same reach as a large from a few years ago. I feel like I'd need to ride a small to get the right reach but then I'd max out the seat post.
  • 2 1
 The super long bikes are the future. We have all been riding bikes that are way too small for us for years. More stable, more room to breath, more room to move around. Just look at motorcycles. You can ride a small with a 150mm dropper post and you'd be fine.
  • 2 1
 @SintraFreeride: Couldn't agree more, people that don't agree are mad their 2017 boosted plus bikes have dated geo. After years of moto every mountain bike I got on seemed way too small. Now that I have a 167 I'll never ride anything smaller (475/121Cool

 yeeeeeears ago, I sold a brand called "Hardland" and full squish specific mountain bike brand...one of the first time I tried my hand at a smaller, Made in USA, labels ... the owner was a really nice guy. the frames were pretty good for the early days of full squishy

BUT, they didn't last very long


I think it was the horrible brand name that killed em

 I don't think im forward geo compatible.....mind you I am of the old 1978 vintage so totally out of spec with the current 2016/17 bike geo's....maybe younger people fit these bikes better.....everyone does seem to be getting taller these days but as my arms haven't grown exponentially in length since I was 20 I feel like bike geo's are out growing me.

perhaps if my legs were shorter and I had ape like long arms.....then these may fit me better?

 yes er..me too... just wondering if these super long bikes can be bunny hopped etc. anything like as easily. I've never ridden a super long bike,...and though I'm sure they're fast, but are they as much fun for farting around on? My bike (an On-One 456) is kinda short I suppose compared to these things and bikes like the Whyte hardtails. It's kind of cramped when climbing, but it's good for hopping around and doing crappy jumps on. What do people think?

For what it's worth, the bike that made me giggle the most was riding a small 1990 rigid GT with cantilever brakes near Grand Junction...it just felt like so quick and stupid and like it was about to kill you at any moment, like riding a crazy horse...I just wonder if these ones are just a bit serious yaknow.
  • 2 0
 @tb927: Take it from me, they are more nimble than you can imagine, it's just a case of adjusting your riding style slightly.... I built up a Mondraker Dune XR in an XL, the forward geo added to 27.5 wheels made it look like a barge, not mm longer, but many cm over my previous enduro... but, on the trail you discover by shifting your weight forward into turns, driving through, really gets the front to stick, and the rear will drift slightly, until you hit the gas with your weight back, and go ! It's more stable on descents, it will jump, manual.. in fact anything you could get a shorter wheelbase bike to do... It took about a month to get it nailed (well almost), still get tentative hurtling into loose corners, but with practice, it's amazing how much quicker it is.... ok, i'm a fan.. get a ride on one and enjoy :-)

  • 1 0
 We have all been riding cramped bikes for years. Some compensate by running longer stems and offset seatposts but it was never enough. Other brands know this is the future but choose to approach is step by step by increasing toptube length 1-2cm per year and slacken headangles 0.5-1º per year.

  • 2 0
 @GumptionZA: Well, it's a biggest bike you can get so I don't think it's an issue. Seb resolved the balance issue by adding a longer stem.
  • 1 0
 @polebicycles: There must be a numerical relationship between rider height and wheelbase. It would probably vary for DH, enduro/ trail and XC. Wheelbase is the sum of all the other measurements which must be balanced to give a good ride.
  • 3 0
 @fartymarty: The weight shifting between the axles is less when the wheels are more apart. This means easier balance in corners. Also it means that there is less frame rotation when you go over the obstacles or ride a drop.

The bike size is determined by rider's height so that the seated position is optimal for pedalling. Also longer reach is essential for loading the front end when the bike is slacker.

The chainstay length is longer to balance the weight distribution on the axles.

Did I answer your question Smile
  • 1 0
 @polebicycles: Yes in a way however it would be good to see a chart or table with rider height in relation to wheelbase. I am 1850mm and if I were riding a 1300mm long wheelbase the ratio would be 0.70. My current ride is 1170mm therefore the ratio would be 0.63.

  • 1 0
 With sag the headangle should be steeper than the 62º sans rider.
  • 1 0
 @SintraFreeride: steeper? i think you mean to say slacker.... its 62 degrees with no rider.. add rider and it's probably going to be somewhere in the 59 degree range which will make for a terrible feeling fork if they land back tire first off anything.
