Polestar presents the perfect mountain bike for its electric cars

The Swedish electric car company Polestar has just announced a collaboration with the also Swedish Allebike, a manufacturer of high-end bicycles. A collaboration whose fruit is the mountain bike Allebike Alpha Polestar Editionwhich combines exquisite quality details with Polestar touches and will be sold in a limited edition.

The mountain bike from the collaboration between Polestar and Allebike is a special version of the Allebike Alpha model, which stands out for its versatility, as it is designed for long routes on any terrain, descents, cross and trail. To this we must add an excellent care for the details and the quality of its finishes, in addition to being made with first class materials. Two different versions will be offered: Space (black) and Snow (white).

The bicycle frame is made in carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP), which gives it rigidity and lightness at the same time. The geometry is designed for the downcountry class with a size between 173-188 cm. The more upright saddle position makes climbing hills easier, while the 65-degree fork angle allows you to descend hills with more confidence.

Just like Polestar’s electric cars, this full-suspension bike is equipped with Öhlins shock absorbers, which in addition to promising excellent performance (we have not been able to test it) have superb finishes. Just look at the images that accompany these lines. More specifically, they equip the Öhlins RXF34 m.2 29 air suspension with a travel of 130 mm (front shock absorber) and TTX1Air of 120 mm (rear shock absorber).
