The best-selling Polygon Helios C4.0 now comes in a disc brake version. The C4.0 Disc is a versatile design that blends both performance and comfort. It's a great bike for the long distance group rider, charity rider, Gran Fondo enthusiast, or anyone who just wants a serious road bike that doesn't require your body to be pushed into overly aggressive aero positions of a purpose built race bike.

Polygon’s proprietary ALX aluminium technology 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 have been raised and are closer to the rider, the seatstays are curved so they flex under bigger vertical impacts like when hitting a pothole at speed and the seatpost is a slender 27.2mm in diameter to allow some flex - further dissipating vibrations before they reach the rider. Add to all of that, you have internal cable routing which gives the bike a cleaner and slender appearance than ever before.

The C4.0 Disc features Shimano disc brakes, which offer superior stopping power under all kinds of riding conditions when compared to traditional rim brakes. These then pull on a discs mounted to a set of Mavic XM 119 Disc Rims with thru-axles, which deliver incredible stiffness and efficiency, and are simply unheard of in a bike in this category.

The new 20 speed Shimano Tiagra 4700 Series drivetrain feels very similar to Shimano higher end components like Dura Ace and Ultegra. Two attributes particularly stand out.

Firstly, the Tiagra Crankset now boasts a constant BCD, meaning you can change front gear ratios without having to purchase a new crankset.

Additionally the shifters move away from exposed cables, as gear and brake cables run under the colour coded bar tape for a clean and sophisticated look. The derailleurs have also been optimized in shifting leverage and cable pitch position to extend service periods and reduce shifting effort.

Finishing the bike off, a set of Schwalbe Lugano 700x25c tyres will keep you glued to the road, on what are Schwalbe best training tyres ever made, offering sensational grip and speed with splendid durability.

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.

How does my bike arrive? Bicycles Online

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. 

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.
