Stamina and Bushmaster LE models have an integrated multitool from OneUp Components. Our racing team and staff has enjoyed the multitool so much that we decided to include the EDC…Read more
TRAILBIKE / 140mm / 140mm / 29″
New orders delivery time will be approx June 2019.
Bushmaster is the long waited new short travel trail bike from Pole, and as the name says, this bike does well in the bushes. Bushmaster is designed for people who want to ride technical but flat trails like a snake and have fun in the bush. We started designing Bushmaster by designing the Stamina first. We wanted to test the new frame construction first from the top and then go back to shorter travel. Stamina is proven 3% faster than the conventional bikes, but on Bushmaster, we took that 2% off from the speed and made it more fun, so it’s still fast but yet more fun. Bushmaster still has a long wheelbase, steep seat tube, and slack head angle but it does manual easier, and it gives you more time on riding on the edge.
Bushmaster follows the new design style of Pole with dust sealed links with double axles. The frame is RAW machined 7075 T6 aircraft aluminum with black details on links and hardware to make the bike stand out.
“Lachesis, also known as bushmasters, is a genus of venomous pit vipers found in forested areas of Central and South America.”
Stamina opened my eyes how much we can actually make difference by just changing the frame construction. Stamina took us to a new era of the frame design how to go faster and our goal on Bushmaster is to make a bike that is truly fun and fast. On Stamina, we started to remove the bolts from the frame as we became more confident on the new frame profile. We have applied for some patents on the new frame construction and now we can start the production on both frames. Bushmaster might be an eyeopener for the people who have been doubting Pole’s geometry and our innovative approach as it’s going to hit the fun argument more than speed argument. Bushmaster is not going to be a statement that we go back to conventional frames. Bushmaster has just 15mm shorter wheelbase than our bikes normally would, but we can make a difference with that 15mm shorter Pole.
