Flatbar road bikes are an ideal entry point into road riding or commuting. The lightweight frame and road bike components will let you keep up on the road, whilst the flat bar handlebars will help reduce the stress on your back and neck.
Polygon have once again raised the bar for 2013, making significant improvements on the 2012 series. The front fork has changed from Cro-Mo Steel to Aluminium, which drastically reduces the weight of bike and maintains the feel in the front end.
Any flat bar road bike should be fitted out with road bike components, and the F1.0 is completed as such, rather than resorting to mountain bike components and forming a hybridised version of a fitness bike. For a rapid commute at a reasonable price there is not better bike than the Polygon Helios F1.0.

Free Pro Build valued at $99
All of our bicycles come with a Free Pro Build valued at $99. This means that your bicycle will be pre built by our professional mechanics here in our Australian warehouse. For your convenience, safety and comfort all our bikes are fully assembled and test ridden prior to delivery. The bike is then packaged back into a box for secure shipment.
When your bike arrives, all you have to attach is the front wheel, handlebar and pedals, everything else has been done – the headset has been adjusted, wheels trued, pedals and seat post greased, brakes and gears calibrated, even the tyres have been pumped up to the correct pressure.
Most companies simply sell you the bike as it comes from the factory, which will require significant know-how to get your bike on the road. Currently we are the only Australian company providing this service, and have the 14 day test ride to back it up.
All tools are provided with the bike.
If you are unsure of how to assemble this bike after viewing the instruction videos above, we recommend you ask for help from someone with knowledge of how to use basic hand tools.
Please note, that all bicycles whether purchased online or instore, are mechanical devices and need to be serviced regularly to ensure proper functioning.
