The new Polygon Siskiu D6 is perhaps the most improved bike in the Polygon range, there have been a raft of changes that has resulted in the perfect blend of performance and value.

Whilst the frame continues with its clean looks as a result of the tapered head tube and internal cable routing, Polygon have added a new single piece linkage which has resulted in reduced lateral flex in the rear triangle and improved the linear movement and performance of the shock.

A big upgrade is the Suntour XCR Air suspension fork. It is much lighter due to the air rather than coil spring and also features 32mm stanchions and magnesium lowers. This fork has so many of the performance features that you typically find in higher priced equivalents. It features a hydraulic lockout so you can stiffen up the fork for improved climbing performance. A Suntour Raidon rear air shock will also be able to take the sting out of the tail of most mountain bike rides, and also still allow the bike to climb effectively with the help of its lock out lever.

The drivetrain is truly remarkable on this bike, it features a two piece crank, complete with hollow spindle together with external bearings, which provide a much more stable and efficient base through which all the power is transferred into the drivetrain. A smart and sensible mix of Shimano SLX and Deore components results in superb 30-speed groupset. It is simply unheard of in bikes in this category to feature a 10 speed cassette combined with a clutch derailleur. The clutch derailleur drastically reduces chain slap and increases the shifting performance especially over difficult terrain Brakes too have been improved with the Shimano callipers now pulling on 180mm front rotor, together with the 160mm rears, to give powerful braking performance in all conditions.

There is simply no other dual suspension bike that ticks all the boxes in the market today like the Siskiu D6.

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. For your convenience, safety and comfort all our bikes are fully assembled 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, the handlebar and pedals, everything else has been done – the headset has been adjusted, wheels trued, pedals and seat post greased, brakes and gears calibrated, and the tyres have been pumped up (please note upon arrival, in some cases you may need to add more air to tyres).

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.

How does my bike arrive? Bicycles Online

All the tools required to assemble the bike are included. 

Please note, that all bicycles whether purchased online or instore, are mechanical devices and need to be serviced regularly to ensure proper functioning. New gear and brake cables, will stretch during the initial bed-in period, and will need to be adjusted after approximately 150-300km. 

Whilst your new bicycle will have already gone through our Pro Build process, you will still need to complete some minor final assembly steps when you take your bicycle out of its box.

Please follow the video playlist below to correctly complete the setup of your new bike:

 

Assembly Time:

  • 10-15min - You have assembled bikes before
  • 15-25min - You are mechanically handy
  • 30-40min - Never assembled a bike and working with tools isn't your thing

 

Unboxing your bike:

Start by carefully opening the top flap to expose the contents. You will see the bike with plenty of protective packaging and next to the rear wheel, the saddle & seatpost, a small cardboard box where your pedals, tools, bell and reflectors are. If you ordered any other products with the bike, it is likely they were placed on the bottom of the box as well. Remove all the loose items before pulling the bike out of the box and gently placing it on the floor.

Keep the box and all the protective packaging found on the bike in case you choose to change frame sizes, upgrade/downgrade the bike, or return the bike for a full refund under the 14 Day Test Ride Policy.
