Tested: Polygon Siskiu N9 29er 2019 review – Flow Mountain Bike

Many times, as we tested this bike, we found ourselves asking “how can we justify spending any more than this on a bike?” The Polygon Siskiu N9 ticks a lot of boxes, with very few compromises, at a great price point too. It’s not the most refined or smoothest, but at $3799 AUD, it’s pretty hard to beat in this category.

Great bike for some garigal tech. Dont need anything crazy long, just a bit of extra squish for the chunk and big hits.

JJ says:

Why do you always have to put very loud music while you are speaking ??? It’s very annoying indeed !!

Great to see reviews of more “Average Joe” price range bikes. Looking around my local trails, there are lots of riders like myself who are never going to be shredding double black trails and doing massive drops and jumps, but we absolutely love riding mountain bikes. We can ride advanced blues and maybe go the B line on some black trails, but we’re not daredevils and we know our limits. I know you can get lessons (and I’ve got some booked in), but not everyone is an A grade footy player or cricketer, and bike riding is no different. I had golf lessons but I was still C grade at golf!
We might ride once a week, or once a month. We can’t justify spending >$5k but we want to tick all the major boxes – dual sus, 1x drivetrain, dropper post, decent tyres, not stupidly heavy, and won’t break the bank. Reviews of bikes like this are awesome for riders like us.
Of course, if you’ve got the cash, I think we’d all still buy something pimped out, even if we were still rubbish 😀

Have a look at the reign sx retails for $4500 aud and is an amazing bundle of value

4g hu. Looks a bit steep for a 2019 release and a enduro bike. Reminds me of the breezer or fuji brands bikes

Justin L says:

Good and helpful to see reviews of sub $4k bikes as youd expect all premium priced bikes to rip. Well done Flow .

Jay Stewart says:

What trail is this @ flow mountain Bike ??

JLP Design says:

aluminum? no thanks.

ghostridersnr says:

Yep, the prices push bike manufacturers are asking for their bikes nowadays is bloody ridiculous. You can buy a brand new motorbike for the same kind of money. It’s not about whether you like push bikes or motorbikes better, it’s about comparing what your actually getting for your money. Push bikes have become too expensive.

Worldwide Cyclery says:

Great rider review as always!

Fluterra says:

I’d rather buy a 3-4 year old S-Works for $4k than this bike new.

Downhill Mitch says:

Hey guys could you do a review on a 2019 Giant reign advanced 1

Oscar P. says:

Kinda like it. Too bad Polygon never responded to the 3 emails sent. I live in Bentonville, AR now and sometimes wish for a Polygon rep to contact me back.

Kalsonic says:

Sorry if I missed this, but what do you think how the suspension linkage feel under heavy braking in bumpy trails?

Looks sweet
