General Interest
Polygon Helios C8.0 - Carbon Road Bike Shimano Ultegra 22 Speed

If you're looking for a carbon fiber bike that is built to go fast, but with a geometry that'll keep you comfortable all-day long, then the Polygon Helios C8.0 is the bike you need. Using a longer head tube than a traditional race bike, the C8.0 creates a slightly more upright rider position in order to stave off upper body fatigue on longer rides. The longer wheel base makes handling predictable, but still snappy. This is the perfect sort of bike for a gran fondo like "Bay in a Day, or "Sydney to the Gong".

The sleek black C8.0 frame is made from Polygon's proprietary ultra high modulus T-series carbon which results in a semi-monocoque structure that is incredibly stiff, light and responsive. A high modulus frame has a stiffer blend of fibers which results in less flex and better transmission of power spent. The C8.0 frame is further refined with a Shimano press fit bottom bracket and tapered head tube. The larger press fit design allows Polygon to move the frame material around, thinning out the seat stays and strengthening the chain stays, which puts the carbon where it matters to you most. The tapered head tube stiffens the front end of the bike for better power transmission.

What really puts this bike above the rest though, is the Shimano Ultegra 6800 11-speed drive train. The Ultegra 6800 levers have been completely reengineered, taking design cues from Dura-Ace 9000 and Ultegra 6770 Di2, and features Vivid Index technology that improves shifting feel and performance. The Shimano Ultegra brakes now offer a two-axle symmetric pivot design that tremendously improve modulation over their 6700-series predecessors. The all-new 11-speed Ultegra front derailleur features a long lever arm that reduces shifting effort while improving performance. The rear derailleur has been reengineered to not only accommodate 11-speed shifting, but it also takes about 13% less effort to initiate a shift, meaning cleaner and crisper shifting.

Shimano RS81-C24 clincher wheels give you a speed advantage without making you vulnerable to cross winds or sacrificing comfort. They are outfitted with Schwalbe Ultremo ZX tyres that have a slick surface for low rolling resistance and a wider 25c profile for greater stability, especially while cornering. The light weight Entity Elite finishing kit including handlebar, stem and seatpost polish off this UCI approved carbon endurance road bike.

Please note the the C8X is pictured above and also in the video below. The C8 is the same except for the ultegra mechnical groupset, and alloy cockpit.

Shipping

Shipping of bikes is free to 97% of residences, however some remote postcodes do incur a surcharge. Please click here for a list postcodes and surcharges

Once your order is placed, we will ship the bike the following business day. Once your bike has been dispatched you will be issued a consignment number which you can use to track your parcel at www.directfreight.com.au. For estimated shipping times, click here.

We do require a signature upon delivery, for this reason we recommend business addresses or where someone will be present on the day of delivery. You can leave special instructions (eg leave on porch) however you will need to assume all responsibility without a signature.

We cannot ship to PO Boxes. For full shipping details click here.

14 Day Test Ride

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.

Free Pro Build valued at $99

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.
