POLY­GON BEND CT5 £ 1,600

Urban Cyclist - - On Test -

Poly­gon’s new gravel-based Bend com­bines a frame and fork con­structed with their own pro­pri­etary alu­minium frame and fork called ALX. This is a light­weight triple-butted tube­set that keeps the weight down and aids chas­sis stiff­ness. The 9.5kg-plus weight doesn’t make it the great­est com­pan­ion on long, drag­ging road climbs; that said, we ap­pre­ci­ate the Poly­gon’s han­dling and sharp re­sponses.
