The brand name Acrolt is conceptualized as a combination of the words Acrobatics and Bolt. Acrolt bikes are exclusively designed in Canada and first came into being in the year 2015. Acrolt as a brand aim’s to create a healthy and green world by encouraging more and more people to be enthusiastic about cycling and in the process reducing the vehicles with carbon emissions for shorter transport. We got the opportunity to test ride the Acrolt M800 Pro Hardtail MTB and here is what we thought.
The Acrolt M800 Pro is a Hardtail Alloy Bicycle. The frame comes with a nicely slanting top tube which ensured increased standover height for the rider which makes it safe for the rider on bumpy surfaces. The frame geometry is ideal for a balanced riding posture which is necessary for trail riding.
Being a Hardtail, the Acrolt M800 Pro comes with a stock X-Light front suspension fork with sufficient travel which helped tackle bad roads and bumpy surfaces on flat trails easily. The Lock-out feature allowed us, to ride faster on flatter sections on the Trail.
The Bicycle which we test rode came with a full Grey primary colour with Green as the secondary colour. The graphics were bold and racy which made the Bicycle look aggressive. The matte finish paint job on the Acrolt M800 Pro was of top quality and definitely gave this MTB a premium look.
Acrolt has used Microshift derailleurs in this MTB model. Microshift as a brand is on par with Shimano in terms of performance and quality. The Acrolt M800 Pro comes equipped with an 8-Speed Microshift M26 at the rear along with Microshift Mezzo M20 3-Speed at the front. The Microshift drivetrain on this MTB was both quick and smooth in shifting with no lag experienced during the test ride. The 24-Speed gearing system is controlled by Microshift’s TS38 trigger shifters.
The stopping power on this Hardtail MTB is taken care of by a pair of Repute branded Mechanical Disc brakes. These brakes were of good quality and the rotors and disc plates were powerful in stopping on flat middy trails as well amidst traffic on Urban roads.
The 660mm MTB handlebar was wide and gave optimum control for the rider when riding through fast paced flat trails and also when maneuvering sharp turns.
The Acrolt M800 Pro comes with Kenda 29” x 2.10” MTB tires. These tires have bulky treads and a uniform tread pattern which provided great traction on moderate to rough trails. The wheelset provided a faster rolling resistance as well as a balanced ride on flat trails. The stock saddle from Acrolt is ergonomic in design with enough cushioning for a soreness free ride.
This Alloy Hardtail MTB had a balanced and trail focused riding geometry. The powerful Mechanical Disc brakes made it easy to stop on muddy trails and wet urban roads. The 29” Kenda tires were heavily treaded and fast rolling as well. The 24-Speed Microshift drivetrain was smooth in shifting and definitely on par with Shimano. Priced at Rs.27,999 (as on 31st January 2022) the Acrolt M800 Pro is an ideal choice for anyone looking to buy an MTB to venture into complete trail riding.
