2023 Polygon Strattos S4 – Shimano Tiagra Road Bike
With the Strattos S4, Polygon has reached a critical balance point — trading weight with durability, speed with comfort, and performance with reliability. The overall package is indeed a category killer.
The ALX All-Round frame doesn’t require an aggressive posture like pure racing bikes, and is instead a slightly more upright comfortable ride — these frames usually termed “endurance frames” are designed for riders doing rides like Bay in a Day or Sydney to the Gong. It’s during these rides that the frame also delivers with predictable handling. Often competitor road bikes in this category are based on race frames, which can feel quite twitchy especially during descents, where the Strattos remains composed and sure-footed.
