Please note the Australian version of this bike now comes in Black / Blue colour scheme as per images.
The new Premier 4.0 Mountain Bike is a versatile bike, sitting comfortably in the line-up as a true off-road mountain bike. Throw on a pair of slicks however and the bike transforms into an adaptable all-round city commuter.
Year on year, the bike has been continually improved with subtle yet desirable upgrades. This year Polygon have upgraded the Premier frame to a lighter weight, hydroformed Alutech cross country frame which was also used on the previous year, higher spec, Xtrada models.
The Premier series utilises Polygon's new Wheel Fit Size System whereby each frame size is paired with the wheel size that best fits the rider and sets them up for optimal efficiency and power transfer. Its simply logical to pair 29˝ wheels with larger bikes, and more proportional, better-fitting 27.5˝ wheels for smaller bikes.
Damping duties are managed by an upgraded Suntour XCM suspension fork with 120mm of travel on the 27.5" bike and 100mm on the 29er version of this bike.
The benefits of hydraulic brakes cannot be overstated. The upgraded Shimano M315 hydraulic disc brakes require only the slightest amount of lever pressure to safely slow the bike in any conditions. It’s in wet conditions that hydraulic disc brakes really outshine typical rim brakes, by using a disc brake, located away from the rim, where it picks up water off the road, the brakes provide consistent and reliable performance. This means that you won’t get that scratching noise or the brake surge so common on rim brakes.
The 24-speed drivetrain is powered by a mix of Shimano Acera and Altus components, so you know that the all components will function together in harmony, and can easily be maintained and serviced. It’s all these features on the bike that mean when you are travelling at speed at your local trail, you will have confidence in the bike performing to your every input.
