The Path 1 is designed specifically for the city. It is a no nonsense urban utility bike – fast and efficient.
The bike utilises a fixed front fork as opposed to a suspension fork - this allows the bike to be a lot lighter in the front end and also ensures the bike is a lot more efficient as no energy is used up in the suspension.
The Path 1 frame is constructed with a geometry that also provides a slightly more upright riding position - allowing the rider to easily view upcoming obstacles or traffic.
The frame is made from Polygon's very own ALX Aluminium which is lighter and more durable than their competitors. Starting with 6061 triple butted tubing, the frame is then heat treated for strength and durability, ALX frames are built to last the test of time and hence why they come with a lifetime warranty.
What is especially surprising is that Polygon have been able to include a tapered head tube on the frame, this is the lightest and stiffest type of head tube that transforms all your energy into forward propulsion as you pull on those bars.
A 24 speed Shimano Altus group set provides the Path 1 with ample gear range to conquer any hill around town. Large 29" wheels with city-specific tyres mounted on double wall alloy rims give this bike plenty of grip at all times – you’ll feel comfortable and in control even whilst cycling at speed.
In order to keep the weight down to the svelte 13kg - the brake selection for this bike uses a powerful set of V-Brakes, simple to use with enough biting power to stop you on your tracks.
Completing the Path 1 is an Alloy stem, handlebar and seat post including a super popular wide and well-padded Entity saddle.
