Despite being a well-know company, established in 1989, Polygon is a fairly new bicycle brand for the Australian market. This well-established brand is a major original equipment manufacturer (OEM) and has the capacity to produce around 700,000 bikes annually, boasting 154 models. Also, Polygon is responsible for the production of other high-quality bicycle brands sold in the land down under.
Like other bike manufacturers, Polygon produces several bikes to cater to the consumers’ varying tastes. You can find ladies, junior, mountain bikes, track bikes, BMX, and road bikes among others.
Included in the road bikes category is the new addition to the Polygon family, the 2013 Polygon Helios C7.0. This is an endurance road bike, making it the perfect companion for commuters. Thanks to a perfectly thought out design and structure, the Polygon Helios C7.0 ensures that bikers experience a smooth ride, without any hassle. The riders’ comfort remains to be one of the top considerations that Polygon keeps in mind when they designed the 2013 Polygon Helios C7.0 – Carbon Road Bike.
Compared to J-bend spokes, the use of straight pull spokes in the Helios C7.0 makes it possible for energy to be transferred efficiently into the rims. This means that the rider does not need to exert unnecessary effort when cruising around the city.
