SUPERBIKE / 180mm / 180mm / 29″

Stamina 180 starts a new era in Pole Bicycle Company. EVOLINK set the standard on Pole Bicycles and Machine refined the capabilities and the innovation that had come up but could not make with welded frames. Stamina 180 is the next step on our path. We have completely redesigned the frame, and now we are going even faster. Stamina 180 is agile, forgiving and inspiring confidence. It feels like you have a magic carpet underneath you when you ride the trails with this beast. One would think that such a long travel bike has compromised the pedalling efficiency, but that is not the case here. We can say that Stamina 180 pedals extraordinary well flat and uphill and its amazing on technical climbs. We describe the bike unbelievable.

Stamina 180 follows the new design style of Pole. The frame is machined from 7075 T6 aircraft aluminium that has superior performance compared to the more common alloys. The unique look makes the bike really stand out in the crowd. Smart features, like big tire clearance, room for three water bottles, silent drivetrain and easy maintenance choices along with conscious component selection, make the Stamina 180 to be a choice for a rider looking for a mountain bike to do it all.

Press reviews

 

“If you’re planning on riding the new Pole Stamina 180, make sure you have a big strong coffee first! The Finnish luxury bike with radical geometry and 180 mm travel unleashes an onslaught on your nervous system – and provided some interesting surprises during our test!”

Christoph Bayer

“The Stamina 180 is an extremely capable, shockingly versatile trail bike, park lapper, and enduro weapon, perfectly suited to riders who are all about the business at hand as opposed to jibbing about.”

-Joel Harwood

Rider reviews

Joseph Nation & Pole Stamina 180 EN

“The Stamina makes going fast safe and easy. This is achieved not solely by the long wheelbase, but also a perfect weight balance between the front and rear wheels. The suspension design enables a bottomless feel without compromising its stable pedal platform. Certainly, a confidence-inspiring bike to own as a racer. Needless to say, I’m a massive fan of it.”

Joseph Nation, Pole EWS Team racer

“Super stable and fast bike and you don’t feel how big is the bike on tight conners (as I supposed). In love!! I have been riding with Trek and Santa Cruz but having much more with Pole Stamina 180.”

Filipe Caldeira, Founder & CEO of @freeridemadeira

ENGINEER’s take

The Machine was an eyeopener to me and as I felt that there is something yet to be discovered beyond the superbike. On the forums, the keyboard warriors think that they have solved the riddle of geometry and suspension. The current status quo is that you need a short travel bike to pedal efficiently and have fun on the trail and the long travel bike makes your ride sluggish, and it’s only for really steep downhills. I think that this paradigm is false. The suspension can be designed so that it is the same time active and supporting. Also, the current misconception on the internet is that the fork offset, head angle, reach and the chainstay length can individually determine how the bike rides. Machine and Stamina’s are the same material, almost the same geometry, and nearly the same kinematics but yet they ride entirely different. The reason is that the bike is not just designed around one feature. The bike is complete when every millimeter of the frame have been adjusted with the true purpose of functionality. We designed the whole frame again from a clean desk. All we left was the kinematics and the basic geometry concept. We were astonished how good the Stamina 180 came to be. The descending is buttery smooth, and it climbs like a mountain goat. I made two personal records UPHILL on my first home trail ride. We think that publishing the geometry table is just irrelevant here and that’s why we won’t even publish the actual numbers. Anyone who wants this bike, know already why the bike is designed. Here is the new platform for the Pole bikes. Stamina.
