Coming in all your favourite colours, the murdered out Polygon Bend CT5 is the cafe racer of the road bike world. Perfect for the rider looking for the efficiencey of a road bike, but with the extra versatility that comes with disc brakes, wider tyres and a 1x11 drive train.
The Bend CT5 is built around an urban-ready and lightweight hydroformed 6061 aluminium frame with a 12mm front thru axle, tapered headtube and SRAM Gutter Seal Technology threaded bottom bracket. The rear of the bike features Polygons flex stay technology which reduces road vibrations, and keeps you comfortable on the bike for longer. The geometery for this bike is slightly more aggressive than the Polygon Bend RV series, designed for commutes rather than week long tours. Front and rear fender mounts ensure that even when it's wet and muddy, you'll be able to stay (mostly) clean and dry, and rack mounts make an excellent addition to cater for any panniers or packs. When cleaning the bike you will also appreciate the internally routed gear cables, as they are kept safely away from the elements.
Having an awesome frame like this is not quite complete if it's not spec'ed with great components and its reassuring to see that Polygon have included such a smart combination of components on this bike. Shifting and braking are handled by SRAM's Rival1 11-speed hydraulic levers, which not only deliver flawless 11-speed shifting, but powerful, dependable braking as well. The 1x11 system not only simplifies the drivetrain, but also cuts down on weight and mechanical complexity, where you never have to second guess what gear combination you are in. The 38T front ring and 11-42T rear give you plenty of range to get you and the bike up and over just about any hill. Braking is handled by SRAM Rival's new flatmount hydraulic road disc brakes, completely intergrated into the shifters and have been refined in recent years to give effortless braking performance.
The CT5 rolls on a set of rugged Entity XL2 aluminum double wall rims, wrapped up in Schwalbe's incredible premium S-One 700x30mm tyres with Kevlar Race Guard puncture protection belt - another nod of the head to its fast paced creditials.
