The Java Veloce Flatbar is made using aluminium alloy, which is perfect to achieve an excellent propulsion-to-comfort ratio. The design of the tubes ensures supreme performance on all kinds of terrain – tested on cobblestones, rough urban roads and smooth city roads. The performance across all terrains was impeccable. The invisible welding technology used on the frame of this bicycle adds to its lightweight.
This bicycle comes equipped with a carbon T800 fork. The combination of a carbon and aluminium frame offers ideal collaboration between the frame and fork. The fork absorbs shock felt from riding on cobblestones, and/or bumpy, rough terrain efficiently.
The Java Veloce Flatbar is a well-designed bicycle. The smooth welding on the frame joints adds to the overall aesthetics of this bicycle. The bicycle we test rode came in a primary colour of purple with bright yellow decals. The branding on the frame of this bicycle is significant while not being overpowering. This bicycle is sure to make heads turn. This bicycle is available in two colour options – Purple/Yellow, and Blue/Pink.
The Java Veloce Flatbar comes equipped with a Shimano Sora Rear Derailleur and a Shimano Claris Front Derailleur. This 18-Speed bicycle is a mean machine when on the road, tackling climbs and flat roads with ease. The shifting was lag-free, it should be considering it is after all Shimano Sora enabled – which at this price point is impressive. The 18-Speed shifting is controlled by Shimano Sora Shifters which require the slightest click to shift.
The Java Veloce Flatbar comes equipped Radius V-Brakes. When tested, both feathered and abrupt braking was powerful while remaining stable and in control. The braking was as effective on both dry and wet terrains on the test ride.
This bicycle comes equipped with a flat handlebar. The handlebar on this bicycle was wide enough to ensure optimum control and maneuvering through traffic on busy roads. Additionally, the ergonomic grips on the handlebar are well cushioned, ensuring a comfortable ride.
The Java Veloce Flatbar comes equipped with fast rolling and sleek 700x23C tires which are attached to Alloy Rims. The tires offered a smooth and fast ride. Cornering felt stable, allowing for crisp sharp turns while being stable.
This bicycle comes equipped with a Deca Saddle. The saddle offered a level of support and cushioning that is well suited to a rider on faster, short-distance rides just as much as those riding a century. A wider saddle would have helped, especially for long-distance rides, however, this does not affect the overall performance of this bicycle.
The Java Veloce Flatbar is a Performance-Oriented Hybrid Bicycle which is ideal for those looking for a fast bicycle for long distance riding on higways and paved roads. This bicycle is the perfect blend of performance and comfort.
