Added a new video Sam Blenkinsop Riding As You've Never Seen Before...Dad Style 9/21/2021 7:29 AM

When Sam’s parents bought him his first pedal bike at 3 years old, they kick-started a lifelong passion for their son. Now, after 17 years competing professionally at the top level of the sport, and collecting his share of silverware along the way, Sam says he’s still in love with mountain biking – just as much as when he got that first bike. “Biking has always been the thing that I love so much, and I always thought that if it ever became a job for me, that’s when I’d stop. But I’ve been professional now for 17 years, and I’m still so hungry for it.” When Sam’s not wide open between the tape on a World Cup downhill track, you’ll find him on his local trails at home in Christchurch, New Zealand – sharing his passion for riding bikes with his daughter Indie. Since becoming a Dad, Sam has juggled racing and fatherhood while remaining at the sharp end of the world cup leaderboards. For most pros, having kids would mean time to ease off the gas – but Sam says getting to share the things he loves with Indie has only made riding more enjoyable. “My riding still feels the same, I’m still as stoked as I ever was – I’m probably more stoked because I get to share that with Indie.” Reflecting on a life of getting to see the world through racing, Sam says he now wants to show Indie what life has to offer as his parents did for him. And whether Indie inherits his love for 2 wheels or not, riding bikes together for them is about sharing amazing adventures, and showing Indie the world, with all the incredible things in it – beyond the walls of her bedroom. A massive thanks to Sam, Lysh, and Indie Blenkinsop for sharing their story.

Absolutely! I rode it with a Vital MTB 22oz Purist bottle and there was juuuuuust enough clearance on the medium frame with the coil shock. Riders will definitely want a side-loader bottle cage.

Added a new video Anthony Messere's Riding Just Keeps Getting Better in Resurgence 9/7/2021 8:00 AM

Building upon a decade of competing at the highest level of freeride and slopestyle competitions around the world, Anthony Messere’s riding career is undergoing a resurgence; still boosting to the moon off a left hip, but to a new level of enjoyment and creativity aboard Polygon Bikes.

“After focusing so heavily on competition for over ten years, spending a lot of time dialing in the same tricks over and over, on the same bike for a majority of the year, I lost that sense of the creativity a bike gives you in the first place. It became tunnel vision and, in some ways, I felt my riding suffered because of this”.

Anthony’s fresh focus will see him returning to his roots. Riding all sorts of mountain bikes and making creative content to inspire others to get on their bike and progress their own riding. Clearly, Anthony’s not ditching his dirt jumper! While Polygon is best known for its history in downhill racing and big mountain freeride, the TRID DJ and Slopestyle models were a key factor in his decision to partner with Polygon. “Coming from a slopestyle background, it’s important to me that Polygon had a connection with it. If they didn’t have a Slope/Hardtail I loved or interest in improving upon, it would be a hard relationship to have. On the flip side, they make a variety of rad bikes for all types of riding which I felt was important for me to expand myself and express my riding abilities.”

In addition to his TRID hardtail and TRID ZZ slopestyle bikes, Anthony’s quiver contains the SISKIU T8 trail bike, SISKIU N9 enduro/park bike and the Mt BROMON8 e-MTB.

“I’ve been having a blast on the SISKIU N9. I went with the small 27.5 for a short, playful bike; front brake hose through the steerer tube for bar spins to make the ultimate park bike.”

Polygon’s Brand Manager for North America, Dave Musgrove, has been a Messere fan since watching him launch into the slopestyle scene as a 15-year-old, landing on the podium at the 2011 Whistler Crankworx Joyride. Musgrove shares, “Anthony’s steez has always inspired me. Working together with Nic and Aaron at Mind Spark Cinema to launch Anthony’s Resurgence is a milestone moment forPolygon and myself. But this is just the beginning; we can’t wait to reveal what else is in the works with Anthony’s content plus future bike models where Anthony’s extensive experience and extreme requirements will be fundamental in the development process”.

FWIW, a comparably specced SB150 will run you $8,400. That is a difference of $1,100.
