Entiat-E is the 1st Polygon’s pedelec (pedal electric bicycle) trail mountain bike supported with an electric pedal-assist system component starting to operate through rider’s pedaling power. With the help of the attached system, riders don’t need to pedal as hard as riding a conventional bike but still possibly doing trail adventures and enjoying the same fun rides quicker and further.

Entiat-E is the perfect choice for riders looking for a more confidence-inspiring e-bike. Built around a lightweight aluminum frame adopting new boost standards with 120mm suspension fork travel, this bike is equipped with Shimano STEP E8020 drive unit offering powerful, quiet assist system and easy to read computer display controlling the internal battery, assist mode, current speed and ranges indicators.

This black on black pedelec is provided with 27.5+ tire for greater improved traction and ready to be converted into tubeless, enhancing grip and comfort when running low pressures on rougher trails.

Entiat-E is capable to hit almost any terrain. Fully customisable power-assist settings for quicker and further adventures even to places riders couldn’t previously reach!

Cotic Launches SolarisMAX Steel 29er Hardtail

Cotic Launches SolarisMAX Steel 29er Hardtail

Cotic SolarisMAX 2018 - Cosmic Black
Cosmic Black

PRESS RELEASE: Cotic Bikes

This week we launch the brand new SolarisMAX. This is our big wheel hardtail, using our premium Reynolds 853 based tubeset and compatible with 29er or 27.5 Plus wheels. For 2018 it features our Longshot geometry, and new colour schemes.

Cotic SolarisMAX 2018 - Cotic Green Gloss
Classic Cotic Green Gloss with Orange Details

As with the rest of the range, the new SolarisMAX has adopted Longshot geometry. It followed on from the work on the recent Gen5 BFe and Soul bikes, as well as the 2018 FlareMAX and Rocket drop full suspension bikes. Here’s a bit more about the development ideas behind this new bike.

The SolarisMAX has been in the range for 6 years now. We weren’t quick to jump on the 29er bandwagon; I wanted to wait until forks and tyres began to sort themselves out so I could do a proper job of the frame. The bike has always been compatible with to up 120mm forks, but one of the questions we are most often asked over the last couple of years is about fitting longer forks to the SolarisMAX, or asking for a longer travel 29er hardtail. There is clearly a demand for slightly more fork capability, so I tweaked the structure of the new bike so it is now designed to run 120mm-140mm forks. With 140mm forks fitted this bike is so capable I just don’t see a separate long travel 29er hardtail being justified, so hopefully, this will be good news to those of you looking for a full speed hardtail trail slayer!

On the flipside of that, the SolarisMAX has always had that other, more long distance side to its personality too, and we haven’t sacrificed this at all in the search for more speed. With 120mm forks it’s lovely and incisive through the singletrack, and with its big wheel, big tyre capability it’s still a real smoothie for big miles. For this generation we have added an extra set of bottle bosses to the down tube, so you can either carry two bottles, or the lower sets is right down by the cranks so you can run one bottle and a frame bag. The Longshot geometry is just a suited to long rides in the hills as it is to picking apart a technical descent. The space in the cockpit keeps you nice and comfy, and the slacker head angle to go with the short stem means it’s nicely stable for long-haul trucking.

With all this in mind, last summer I ordered myself a Longshot FlareMAX shaped hardtail. Roughly speaking it was same as the 2017 SolarisMAX from BB rearwards – same BB height, same chainstay length, same big clearance stays and Boost148 spacing – but with a new FlareMAX shape for the front triangle. Another change was the seat angle. Compared to the previous versions it’s now a little steeper to position your weight more central in the bike to go with the Longshot geometry. It’s not crazy steep – 74 deg with the rider on board on the 120mm fork. We have tried super steep seat angles and we just don’t get on with it. It’s a preference thing, and most of us run our saddle in the middle or towards of the rear of the rails on the new bikes anyway, so if you do want to be a little further forward I definitely see that as an option within the adjustment you have on the saddle rails.

I think the bike is an absolute blast to ride! Plenty of space to move, lively and fun, but so confidence inspiring at speed. The sharp steering you get from the short stem balances the slacker head angle, so it’s still completely ridiculous what you can get away with on this bike with big 29er or 27.5 Plus tyres installed. With a couple of small tweaks, what I was riding then is what you see now in production.

Here are some more detail images:

New Renthal Fatbar and Fatbar Lite

New Renthal Fatbar and Fatbar Lite

PRESS RELEASE: Renthal

We are pleased to announce the following three new product groups;
– Updated Fatbar, in AluGold or Black Hard Anodised Finish
– Updated Fatbar Lite, in AluGold or Black Hard Anodised Finish
– Fatbar 35 and Fatbar Lite 35 in Black Hard Anodised Finish


Fatbar
This updated version of the Fatbar has undergone a full structural re-design. In keeping with the demand for wider, gravity oriented handlebars, we have increased the width to 800mm. Our proven high grade 7050 T6 aluminium, variable gauge, taper wall tubing is the key ingredient of the Fatbar. With careful and efficient use of material, we have massively reduced the weight to a trail-worthy 315g. At the same time, performance levels retain the same legendary DH strength and durability and match the flex characteristics of the original Fatbar.

The new Fatbar is available in our market-leading choice of rise options; 10, 20 30 and 40mm. And we have now added a colour option; either the iconic Renthal AluGold hard anodised or the all-new black hard anodised finish.

• Weight: 315g
• Width: 800mm
• Colours: AluGold or Black
• Rises: 10, 20, 30, 40mm

Fatbar Lite
The ever-popular Fatbar Lite has been given some structural tweaks to bring it bang up to date, with the increased width at 760mm. With efficient use of high grade 7050 T6, variable gauge, taper wall tubing aluminium, we have kept the same market-leading weight of 270g. The new Fatbar Lite achieves all of this whilst retaining the same high level of strength and durability and matching the flex characteristics of the original Fatbar Lite.

The new Fatbar Lite is available in our market-leading choice rise options; 10, 20 30 and 40mm. And we have now added a colour option; either the iconic Renthal AluGold hard anodised or the all-new black hard anodised finish.

In addition to our iconic AluGold hard anodised finish, this new colour option offers the same super durable finish.

Rockshox Bluto RCT3

You’ve probably observed more and more riders are on bikes that look “different” on your trails. Bikes that have wheels and tires of gigantic proportion – and we’re not talking about 29ers here. The thing is, even though fat bikes were created to float on top of snow, they’re just too damn fun not to ride on dirt. So how do you amplify your fat bike adventures even further? With a supercharged, ultra-efficient, first-of-its-kind fat suspension fork called Bluto. We started with the features you’ve come to love from RockShox: Fast Black aluminum upper tubes, stout 15mm Maxle™, remote or crown adjustable damping, tapered steer tube, and the infinitely tunable Solo Air™ spring. Then, the chassis got the fat treatment by re-engineering it to meet the unique needs of fat tires and wheels. Everything from crown, to arch, to axle has been optimized to tackle the increased torsional loads of its wide stance. With more traction and control than ever before, you’ll never be happier you went fat.
