The new Premier 4.0 Mountain Bike is a versatile bike, sitting comfortably in the line-up as a true off-road mountain bike. Throw on a pair of slicks however and the bike transforms into an adaptable all-round city commuter.
Year on year, the bike has been continually improved with subtle yet desirable upgrades. This year Polygon have upgraded the Premier frame to a lighter weight, hydroformed Alutech cross country frame which was also used on the previous year, higher spec, Xtrada models.
The Premier 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. Its simply logical to pair 29˝ wheels with larger bikes, and more proportional, better-fitting 27.5˝ wheels for smaller bikes.
Damping duties are managed by an upgraded Suntour XCM suspension fork with 120mm of travel on the 27.5" bike and 100mm on the 29er version of this bike.
The benefits of hydraulic brakes cannot be overstated. The upgraded Shimano M315 hydraulic disc brakes require only the slightest amount of lever pressure to safely slow the bike in any conditions. It’s in wet conditions that hydraulic disc brakes really outshine typical rim brakes, by using a disc brake, located away from the rim, where it picks up water off the road, the brakes provide consistent and reliable performance. This means that you won’t get that scratching noise or the brake surge so common on rim brakes.
The 24-speed drivetrain is powered by a mix of Shimano Acera and Altus components, so you know that the all components will function together in harmony, and can easily be maintained and serviced. It’s all these features on the bike that mean when you are travelling at speed at your local trail, you will have confidence in the bike performing to your every input.

Shipping of Bikes
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 email@example.com 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:
- 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.
