A low-cost alloy gravel adventure bike is available from Polygon Bend.

The new Polygon Bend is a cutting-edge dirt bike with plenty of mounts, room for 70050 tires, and dropper post compatibility, making it ideal for adventuring. The price for a complete bike begins at about $1499.With its sloping top tube, the Bend’s alloy frame offers excellent standover clearance and little weight even when fully laden. The top tube and down tube also feature rigid mounting hooks for frame bags, making loading and unloading a breeze.

There are three bottle cages total: two inside the front triangle and one below. The carbon fork features three “any cage” attachments in addition to rack and fender eyelets. There are rack attachments in the back for stowing extra gear. The lowered seat stays provide additional compliance by bending and flattening.

The aforementioned R7 costs $1,499 and features a mechanical SRAM Apex 111. Above that, the Nautical Blue Bend R9X costs $2,899 and features a Rival AXS 112 gearing system and upgraded Novatec tubeless-ready wheels.

For $3,999, you can get a top-of-the-line Bend V9X equipped with SRAM GX AXS components, Reverb XPLR AXS brakes, and a Fox AX32 suspension fork.
