This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Trail MTB with good geometry and components for a stunning price. Have been looking at the Calibre Triple B and Vitus Mythique however the specification of this bike seems to blow them out the water for the price.

The next cheapest price I could see is from Cycle Republic for £2500, so this deal is effectively 55% off.

The seller also has other items such as enduro the N8 and N9 for similar stunning prices (and available in different sizes).

From looking Moore Large the seller are the UK distributer for Polygon so I can only assume this deal is a stock clear out.

Description from the Polygon website below:

The Siskiu T8 is built around a new lightweight, hydroformed 6061 aluminium Boost frame and longer 140mm (29er) / 150mm (27.5″) travel. By utilising a one piece linkage system, the frame weight is kept to a minimum whilst reinforcing high-stress areas and reducing flex under heavy loads. The rear swing triangle also features a unibody pivot bridge that stiffens the rear wheel and provides you a lot more control when exiting high-speed corners and negotiating rock gardens. The Boost design means that the Siskiu T now comes with wide 29mm rims with 2.6″ tyres (27.5″ wheel) and 2.35″ tyres (29″ wheel). The frame is finished off with a tapered headset, rear thru axle, and internal routing for gears, brakes and 150mm dropper post. If you’re looking for a bike to do it all with killer style and a dependable, high quality, trail ready components list, then the Siskiu T8 is the bike for you.

Seems hot to me so I've voted hot😁
Great spec for the money
I have a polygon cozmic rx2.0 with some BOS Dizzy forks. Hands down the best bike I've ever owned. The geometry is perfect for my larger frame and it's so assured downhill. Never been tempted into a full sissy but heat added just for the brand.
Heat from me, decent spec.
Really good suspension (travel and component) wise on this. The gearset is a bit of a mishmash though PROWHEEL crankset, SUNRACE cassette, SHIMANO SLX shifter, XT derailleur. The handlebars are in house as are the wheels which aren't taped for tubeless.

I'm really not a fan of the rear shock sizing on the triple B upgrade wise, but I do like DUB BB and NX eagle gearset.

This review doesn't make good reading.

Other reviews from pinkbike, flow and outdoor gear lab (second in a group test behind a yt jeffsy) are considerably better. Also that is reviewing the bike at the RRP when the competition is much stiffer than at this price.

If you want something with 1x12 SRAM the same seller also has the Polygon N8 enduro bike at £1347 (using the code) - rover.ebay.com/rov…525. This has too much travel for me though and the riding I do at 170mm (27.5) or 160mm (29'r). Might be a good deal for someone though as an alternative to a Calibre Sentry for a cheaper price.

Polygon is the brand of the big OEM manufacturer Insera Sena in Indonesia. They also own the Marin brand nowadays and are a big supplier to Go Outdoors with their Calibre brand and many Halford's brands bikes. If the bike is made in Indonesia it is probably Insera Sena. Very good quality bikes for very reasonable money.
To be honest I already have a Triple B which was a smidge more than this, I just don't think it's blown out of the water by this if you look at every component.

Things are not as bad as I thought with the calibre shock sizing. It's just hopeless looking on CRC. There are even coil options, but I'm not sure if they'd suit the linkage ratio.
Received the bike next day delivery and got it all set up and am super happy. Feels light and pedals well, 2.6" tyres feel like they will be amazing off road. Can't wait to now get out on some proper trails 😁
Excellent. I found a much better video review of the 29er on youtube with some good setup tips.

It concurs with the Pinkbike review on removing a bottomless token on the front.

Also NX Eagle Dub sets are £205 on CRC at the moment. Should anyone prefer to stay with the 27.5.

I'm the same. I'd also settle for less rain .
Just a note for anyone buying the 27.5 the rock show revelation fork doesn't have and bottomless tokens fitted when setup at 150mm as on this bike. I did get two tokens in the box though so can fit them if required.

With regards to gearing if I find I want the extra low range of a 50 tooth the cheapest way will be to replace the 11-46 sunrace cassette with a 11-50 (this should work fine with the medium cage xt mech). Still only 11 gears however exactly the same range as NX/GX from SRAM.
Even better then for the 27.5 out of the box The 1 to 5 click shifter to lower gears is another plus with the eagle, but doing 5 in the air/landing requires a chain guide.
For anyone wondering if these can stand up to a bit of abuse, in this video Sam Reynolds is riding one including a massive back flip...
Fair play it has a few components swapped out though spank spoon wheels, stem, and bars are the easy spots. I think the Suntour AURON on the front is a bit of a downgrade though.

I bought a Garmin Speed V2 for mine. Brilliant bit of kit for logging miles and speed. It can store 300 hrs of activity between syncs or be used as a live sensor 2x BLE or ANT+.
