Java is an International Bicycle brand with a wide range of Road Bicycles on offer in India. Java is known for its stylish design and value for money components. We got the opportunity to test ride the Java Suprema Carbon 105 Road Bike and here is what we thought.
The Java Suprema Carbon 105 is built on a lightweight full Carbon frame. The geometry is aggressive and this is needed for fast and compact rides. This frame has a tapered head tube, a smoothly welded frame, and an integrated seat post clamp. The aerodynamic tube profiles make sure the trailing edges aid in the smooth reintegration of air.
The Aero flattened Carbon fork is bladed which helped with keeping the front of the bicycle light and aerdynamic.
Java’s designs are cutting edge and futuristic with smooth welding of the tubes. The Bicycle I test rode came with a Black gloss finish frame with Red as the secondary colour for graphics and text. The flat aero tube profiles along with the bladed Carbon fork and an integrated seat tube clamp immensely enhanced the aesthetics of this Bicycle.
The Java Suprema Carbon 105 is equipped with a full Shimano 105 R7000 Road Drivetrain. 105 is Shimano’s entry into full performance drivetrains, it sits beneath Dura-Ace and Ultegra in the Shimano Road hierarchy. During the test ride both at the front and rear, the gears shift cleanly, smoothly and quietly. We never missed a gear or felt the shifter being unresponsive when we needed to change gears quickly. The 2x11-Speed integrated Shimano 105 shifters were easy to use with feather light pushes to change the gears.
The Road specific brakes handle the braking power on the Suprema. These brakes were lightweight components and powerful on flat tarmacs and balanced on wet roads.
The Deca Alloy drop handlebar with an integrated stem was of perfect length for optimum control over the Bicycle on steep turns and also gives a compact riding posture.
The Michelin Sport 700x23C slick tires on the Suprema are race specific tires built to be lightweight and reliable. These tires give maximum traction on both dry and wet tarmacs. They are well supported by lightweight deep-dish Decaf rims.
The Deca Saddle was not only stylish, but has a level of support and cushioning that suits the rider on faster rides just as much as long distance rides. The integrated carbon seat post was shaped aerodynamically.
This Road Bicycle comes with a full Shimano 105 drivetrain and road specific caliper brakes. The lightweight full Carbon frame with Carbon fork kept the overall weight less at just 9.01kgs. The design and graphics were aesthetic and the gloss finish was smooth and of top notch quality. Priced at Rs.1,80,000(as on 15th September 2022) the Java Suprema Carbon 105 is an ideal choice for anyone looking to buy a Road Race Carbon Bicycle with aero-dynamic profiling.
