New Bike: Polygon Sam Reynolds Prototype

Most people know that Sam Reynolds of Polygon UR Team has been riding a hardtail for several time, but at the Crankworx Les 2 Alpes 2015 event, the Englishman may not riding his hardtail anymore as Polygon gives him a new full suspension slopestyle prototype. The Sam Reynolds' Polygon Prototype is a 100 mm travel bike. This will be interesting how Sam rides a full suspension bike for the slopestyle event.

As the bike is looking awesome, the bad news about this prototype is that Polygon does not have plan to build this prototype as mass production. So, this prototype will only be used by Sam Reynolds, at least for now. Another thing that make this bike is special is the usage of BOS rear shock; they are pretty rare to give a slopestyle a rear shock. But that's normal because Polygon UT Teams runs with BOS Suspension.

Another things about this Sam Reynolds Polygon Prototype; this bike is finished with the graphic like on the World War II fighter planes, a shark teeth. Polygon's fans maybe have to be more patience to wait this bike to be produced as public. For now, just watch the new Sam Reynolds on the Crankworx Rotorua Les 2 Alpes 2015 event with his new bike.
