Standover Height is the distance from the ground to the top of the top tube. We rotated the shock 90 degrees and created even more standover space than on our…Read more

New orders delivery time will be approx end of July 2018.
We believe it is possible to build a mountain bike with no compromise. Light enough for the trails and stiff and aggressive enough for the downhills. The suspension is firm and snappy, and the bike climbs the mountains like nothing. The frame geometry follows Pole’s notoriously long and slack geometry with steep seat tube for better climbing.
From a solid block of tool aluminum, machined into a superbike.
We CNC-machine the frame and links from 7075 T6 billets supported by titanium axles. The front and the rear triangles are bonded together with glue; similar methods are in car and airplane industries. The MACHINE frame will be 100% made in Finland.
“The Pole Machine is a real superbike. Similar to a supercar, the faster you ride, the better it gets. It offers an unprecedented degree of stability and control. It takes the horror out of the scariest trails without feeling sedate or undefined on flat sections. Oh, and there’s the look and the manufacturing process: this bike is a one-of-kind masterpiece!”
“The harder the Machine was pushed the more I got out of it, even when things got out of hand. The Machine just hunkers down giving the confidence to keep the brakes off and the throttle open.”
“This is surely one of the most innovative bikes around. Made in Finland with techniques and materials more associated with aerospace than bicycle frames, and with proportions that take long and slack to the next level, Pole’s Machine is touted as a new way of thinking about high-end bikes.”
Machine represents our values in ethics, engineering, and design. We took Machine’s design to a level that redefines the high end. We designed the bike to be your extension so that riding the bike would be easy as waving a pen in the air. We chose the frame material from the most elegant aluminum that aircraft industry uses in their planes and tools and pushed the frame technology to a level that none has gone before. The frame is made in Finland by machines. The design of the frame is the ultimate expression what we can do today. I hope you have plenty of adventures with the Machine. -Leo Kokkonen
