I actually can't believe how good this bike is.

This bike blows me away. It rides brilliantly, very fast and also more comfortable than I expected for such a race focussed bike. I didn't get to ride a Polygon before ordering, but I don't think that is anything to get hung up on.

I have to admit the main factor in my decision to go with the Helios 800 was actually due to the incredible value of all the parts fitted as standard, but once I pulled it out of the box it was the frame that really jumped out at me. The design and finish is awesome, and once I rode it I knew I had made the right choice. Great handling, stable and quick turning, and the power transmission is good too.

But the value is incredible, no other well built bike can touch this thing for the price. I really like the way the Bicycles Online website breaks it down against the competition, it makes the choice clearer!

I have only just bought it, but can't stop riding it. I totally recommend this bike.
Fast! Looks great, rides even better. Love the frame, the wheels, hell all of it.

Couldn't be happier, and still so happy with the deal i got on this baby! I'm pumping out around 200kms a week; hills, flats, you name it and I have absolutely no complaints. Nice and light and seems to go well up the hills. Polygon have won a fan with this bike. Definitely a great first bike for anyway reasonably serious about riding, but i would say that when i'm looking to get a new bike in a few years I will be looking at Polygon again. They seem to be on the up-and-up and you cannot beat the price. Highly recommended!


The only thing that was faster than this bike was the delivery! I can't fault the speed and efficiency that the bike was dispatched!
I didn't get to ride a Polygon before ordering, but I have set it up and love the feel!

The Helios 800 is incredible value of all the parts fitted as standard. The bike is fantastic where it counts.....it corners well, climbs better than anything I have previously ridden is just a great aggressive bike to ride!

The value for money, quality and performance are all it's strong points

The only negative is that I had to tune the bike gearing when I got it out of the box, which was a bit annoying however should be expected for something that has been delivered in a box.

Highly recommend this bike
