The Heist 5.0 is the top of the line 29er hybrid commuter bike from Polygon. Now in its 4th generation, it is designed for the serious urban commute or weekend adventure.
The Heist 5.0 features a strong a light Alutech 6061 alloy frame, with double-butted, smooth-welded, and hydroformed top and down tubes for a lightweight, responsive ride. The SR Suntour NCX fork offers 63 mm of suspension travel for confidence in downhill descents and features a speed lockout for efficiency on the streets. The Entity flat riser handlebar will keep you upright and comfortable on the Selle Royal Seta flex foam saddle, and the Entitiy Dual Density grips will absorb road vibration and landing impacts so your hands, arms, and back don't have to.
The full Shimano Deore drivetrain offers 30 gearing options for climbing, accelerating, and reaching top speeds. Shimano BR-M355 hydraulic disc brakes will safely slow the bike in all weather conditions. Finally, the bike rolls on a pair of 29 inch Rigida Zac 2000 double wall ally trekking wheels which are wrapped in german Schwalbe Tyrago tyres which feature puncture protection to fight against flats.

I spent a full day going from bike store to bike store and the guys at Bicyclesonline listened, and took plenty of time describing the features on different bikes. Outcome was an excellent bike (Polygon heist 5.0) perfect for the on sealed road/ gravel road conditions I travel on.
Riding it has been a dream.
Polygon Heist 5 2012 and 2015 Models
Posted by Unknown on 25th Jan 2015
In 2013 I bought a 2012 model heist 5, since then I have ridden about 6000kms on the bike, apart from a few minor adjustments on the gears the bike has given no trouble at all. The bike is a pleasure to ride, even in windy conditions.
Recently I bought a 2015 Heist 5,everthing on the bike was adjusted perfectly, all I had to do was put on the front wheel and handlebars. I have ridden the bike about 250kms and it performs very well.
I think the polygon heist 5 is the best all round performance bike on the market.
Pictures don't do it justice

They really need to update the pictures of this bike, they don't do it justice.
So far I am very happy with my purchase and would recommend it to anyone in the market.
Happy with my decision

After many hours of research I came to the conclusion that the Polygon Heist 5.0 was the best hybrid bike in that price range. Do your research.
It looks great (Many people have commented)and rides even better. Has very good components. The gearing is awesome. I have some steep hills and long flats where I live. I'm 180cm tall (large frame), set the bike up properly and a size up would have fit also. Very happy with my purchase. Did change the seat though and that is why I gave four stars not five.

Have been riding this bike for about 5 months now. Gearing is really smooth compared to my previous entry levell bike. Have set it up with rack, panniers and mud guards. So much better than a heavy backpack. Only a couple of critisisms, had to get a new saddle as the original was like a brick and the trigger on the shifters is too close to the handlebars. Can't get your grip under it. Otherwise very happy with the purchase.
Rides like a dream

I have been using a 2nd hand bike for 6 months and finally decided to treat myself!

Was a perfect bike for me!

This is pretty good bike for commuters.It's been a long time since last time i rode a bike. Now I ve been using it for going to work and around town in Sydney. It is a hybrid so I will try it on offroad later to see how it handles. The value is good. Assembling is easy, but a video showing how to balance the brakes is much appriciated as it is hard for a rookie like me to get the brakes balanced.
As good as a Giant 0 at half the price.

Excellent service from bicyclesonline staff who were kind enough to let me test ride several bikes in the store.
I was very surprised with the Heist 5.0, I also tested the Giant Roam 0 which was the equivalent bike at twice the price. I found the Heist 5.0 more stable at high speed and thus a better commuter bike. Giant was more agile but not really what you want for a commuter bike.
I need to modify the bike a bit, better peddles, adjustable stem, bar end grip. Now very happy with it, Heist 5.0 is a solid well built bike.
