Firefox is one of India’s leading Bicycle brands with Bicycles for all types of riders and surfaces. From Kids Bicycles to Performance Focused Bicycles they have it all. Firefox have a stronghold in the City/Hybrid segment and they have launched a new model and we got the opportunity to test ride this new model the Firefox Street SS and here is what we thought.
Weight: 13.4 kgs
The Firefox Street SS is built on a strong Steel frame which is robust and has an comfort focused geometry. The neatly welded tubes can take in enough vibration off the surface and makes the riding experience better. The Steel Suspension fork with a 60mm travel was enough to handle bumps and ditches on the road.
The Bicycle which I test rode came in a Gloss finish Blue as the primary colour on the frame with Light Blue and Yellow graphics. The gloss finish paint job was neat and the smoothly welded edges made the frame look sleek. The colour coded design on the fork was a nice aesthetic touch.
The Firefox Street SS comes with a Single-Speed drivetrain. The 40T crankset provides some solid pedaling on city streets. The pedaling was smooth on both flat roads and inclines. This is not just easy to ride but also easy to maintain.
The Firefox Street’s stopping power is taken care of by a pair of Power V-brakes. These brakes were the conventional braking system with reasonably long brake pads which help the Bicycle come to a halt in a safe and balanced manner. During the test ride these brakes did help come to a quick halt and to maneuver through traffic easily.
The Steel handlebar was wide and gave an ‘open-chested’ riding position for the rider.
Being a Commuter Hybrid Bicycle the Firefox Street SS rolls on a pair of 700x38C tires. These tires were slick and fast which was perfect for riding in the city. The tires were treaded well to keep the Bicycle balanced on both wet and dry conditions.
The stock Saddle from Firefox was standard in shape with ideal length and width. This saddle had a lot of cushioning and made the ride sore free.
This Hybrid Bicycle is built on a strong frame which was comfortable to ride. The Single-Speed drivetrain was easy to pedal and also easy to maintain. The gloss finish paint job and design was simple, neat and gave a premium look to the Bicycle. Priced at Rs.13,000(as on 1st December 2020) the Firefox Street SS is an ideal choice for anyone looking to buy a Bicycle for city commuting and fitness rides.
