Building on the tremendous success of the Siskiu D and more recently the Siskiu T range over the past few years, we are excited to introduce you to the newest and burliest member of the Siskiu family - the Siskiu N - Polygon's latest alloy all mountain / enduro steed. The Polygon Siskiu N8 is the bike you've been waiting for and it comes with all the parts and clever technology you'd expect from Polygon, like the frame size specific 29er or 27.5" wheels, internal dropper post, Rockshox Yari front fork suspension and a 1x12 drivetrain. 
 
The Siskiu N is built around a new lightweight, hydroformed 6061 aluminium Boost frame and longer 160mm (29er) / 170mm (27.5") travel. By utilising a one piece linkage system, Polygon have been able to keep the frame weight down whilst reinforcing high-stress areas and reducing flex under heavy loads. The rear swing triangle also features a unibody pivot bridge that stiffens the rear wheel and provides you a lot more control when exiting high-speed corners and negotiating rock gardens. The Boost design means that Polygon have been able to include wide 29mm rims with 2.6" tyres (27.5" wheel) and 2.35" tyres (29" wheel). The frame is finished off with a tapered headset, rear thru axle, and internal routing for gears, brakes and dropper seat post.
 
The  Siskiu  N series utilises  Polygon's new Wheel Fit Size System whereby each frame size is paired with the wheel size that best fits the rider and sets them up for optimal efficiency and power transfer. We pair 29er wheels with 18.5" and larger bikes, and more proportional, better-fitting  27.5-inch  wheels for 17.5" and smaller bikes.
 
A new SRAM NX Eagle 1 x 12 drivetrain powers the N8 with a massive 50T rear cassette providing plenty of range to glide up those steep climbs. A single trigger shifter keeps things simple while providing smooth, quiet action and reliable chain retention (thanks to a single chainring and rear-derailleur clutch). The Descendant crankset is engineered for complete chain control. Each tooth’s thickness is precisely toleranced and controlled to work seamlessly with the SRAM chain’s inner and outer links eliminating the need for a bulky chain guide and continuing the clean looks of the bike.
 
Dampening duties on the N8 are provided by a Rockshox Yari DebonAir front fork. This is combined with a dependable Fox Performance Float DPX2 air shock on the rear with external rebound and 3 position compression. The bike rolls on a pair of wide 29mm rim Entity XL2 tubeless ready wheels and Schwalbe Nobby Nic tyres with a nice and wide 2.35" to 2.6" width giving you loads of traction for climbs and hitting the berms.
 
Completing the Polygon Siskiu N8 is a EXA Form Drive dropper seat, Entity Xpert cockpit, and Tektro Orion 4 Piston Hydraulic Disc Brakes.

We understand how important shipping is once you click "buy now", that's why we have the following policies

Australian Warehouse

All products are in stock and ready to ship from our Sydney warehouse (with the exception of preordered bikes, which have the dispatch date illustrated)
 

Next day dispatch

All orders received by 5 pm AEST will usually be dispatched the following business day. If an order is placed on the weekend or public holiday, please note dispatch will usually be the next working day. For tracked shipments, please allow 12 hours for tracking to begin.
 

Shipping of Parts, Accessories and Apparel

There is free delivery available on all small parcels Australia wide using tracked services of Australia Post or Fastway, no minimum order value required! Estimated delivery time is 4-9 business days. 

Express Shipping

We do also offer Express Shipping for a small additional fee on parts, accessories and apparel orders. Estimated delivery time on Express Shipping is 1 to 4 business days.
 

Shipping of Bikes

Shipping of bikes and other bulky goods is free to 85% of residences in Australia. However, some postcodes incur a surcharge starting from $29. 

Once shipped you will be issued a consignment number which can be used to track your parcel. We use Direct Freight Express for deliveries and you can track your delivery by calling 1300 347 397 or online at www.directfreight.com.au

 

We’re so confident that you’ll love our extensive range of bikes, that we’ll let you ride one as your own for a full 14 days and if you don’t like it, simply e-mail us at sales@bicyclesonline.com.au and we’ll pick it up from you, free of charge! Just make sure you keep the box so it can be re-used to send it back. Click here for more information. 

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.

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.
