The Polygon Helios C4.0 is Polygon's top of the line alloy endurance road bike and an absolute best seller year after year. It is designed for the long distance group rider, charity rider, Gran Fondo enthusiast, or anyone who just wants a serious road bike that doesn't push your body to the limits like a full-on race bike.


The ALX Advanced Endurance Hydroformed 6061 Aluminium frame has been tweaked in 2016 to take full advantage of your pedalling power and the geometry refined for improved ergonomics. This is visible on the oversized downtube, tapered headtube, beefed up bottom bracket and sturdy chainstays, all of these helping to utilize every single stroke of power on the pedals. To improve comfort, the handlebars are raised by a few millimetres and closer to the rider, the seatstays are curvy so they flex under bigger vertical impacts (hitting a pothole at speed) and the seatpost is a slender 27.2mm in diameter to allow some flex, further increasing vibration dissipation before it reaches the rider. Furthermore, another update that stands out from most bikes in this category is the internal gear and brake routing making the bike have a cleaner and sleeker appearance than ever before, plus it protects the gear and brake cables from the elements.


Moving onto the drivetrain, the new Shimano Tiagra 4700 Series will surprise you from the moment you jump on the bike. When you first look at this new groupset, the resemblance to Shimano Dura Ace, Shimano Ultegra and Shimano 105 is uncanny. In fact, most of the updates to this new Shimano Tiagra groupset were trickled down directly from Shimano Dura Ace, Shimano’s top-end racing components, raced worldwide. With Shimano Dura Ace, Ultegra and 105 rolling on 11 speeds, the new Shimano Tiagra groupset feels like a 10 speed version of Shimano 105 drivetrain. Probably the best updates to this 4700 Tiagra is the new Crankset and new Shifters. The Crankset now boasts a constant BCD, meaning you can change gear ratios without having to purchase a new crankset. The shifters move away from exposed cables, as gear and brake cables run under the bar tape for a clean look. The derailleurs have also been optimized in shifting leverage and cable pitch position to extend service periods and reduce shifting effort. Last but not least, brakes have been upgraded and based on the previous Shimano Ultegra brakes, boosting braking power by 30%, when compared to previous Shimano Tiagra brakes.

Improving comfort, the Polygon Helios C4.0 is size minded, meaning that for each specific frame size, crank arm length, stem length and handlebar width are tuned for the best possible rider ergonomics. The handlebar on the C4.0 features an ergonomic shape to the drops, making it not as aggressive and improving contact points for better bike handling.


Finishing the bike off, a set of Schwalbe Lugano 700x25c tyres will keep you glue to the road, on what are Schwalbe best training tyres ever made, offering sensational grip and speed with splendid range. These mount on a set of unyielding Shimano R501 wheels, with low rolling mass, a huge help when the road points up.
