Montra Metal 27.5 2019 Review

Montra is an Indian Performance Bicycle brand with Bicycles for all purposes and riders. Every year Montra has a dedicated line of new bicycle releases with better graphics, design and specs. The MTB series has always been Montra’s strength and they had a new model release for 2019. We got the opportunity to test ride the Montra Metal 27.5” (2019) and here is what we thought.

Weight: 15.8 kgs

Montra Metal 27.5 2019 Frame

The Montra Metal 27.5” (2019) is built using a strong 6061 Hardtail Alloy frame. This frame has a slanting top tube which gives extra stand over clearance for the rider. This helps when riding on bumpy trails with a lot of ups and downs. The tubes are bigger and bulky at the joints and sleeker at other places which kept the weight at check while being strong enough to take in vibrations of the surface.

This is a hardtail MTB and comes with a front suspension fork. The Zoom suspension fork comes with a 60mm travel which was just enough to tackle bumpy roads and easy trails. The mechanical suspension lockout feature is useful and helps make the fork rigid to make riding on flatter surfaces easier.

Montra Metal 27.5 2019 Design

The bicycle which I test rode came in a full Carbon Black coloured frame with Neon Red as the secondary colour for text and graphics. The matte finish paint job was of superior quality giving a smooth finish. The graphic design was simple yet elegant and the dark neon colour combination was contrasting and aesthetic. The internal cable routing made the bicycle look neat and also protected the cables from dust and external impact.

Montra Metal 27.5 2019 Gearing

This hardtail MTB is equipped with Shimano Tourney at the front and rear as derailleurs. These gears are entry-level in the Shimano MTB hierarchy and they were efficient in shifting during the test ride with smooth gear transmissions. This is the first time we are seeing an 8-Speed Tourney at the rear derailleur in a Montra and this makes it an overall 24-Speed combination which gives that extra range for speed. The Tourney EasyFire 24-Speed shifters were easy to use. This is the same drivetrain setup on the Metal 29er variant as well.

Montra Metal 27.5 2019 Brakes and Steering

Logan’s Mechanical Disc brakes handle the stopping power on the Metal 27.5” (2019). These brakes were quick to respond on both dry and wet surfaces. These brakes from Logan are ideal braking components for rough urban roads and easy trails.

The XMR Alloy handlebar was wide and perfectly suited for having a comfortable handlebar posture and full control of the cycle on fast paced trail rides and roads.

Montra Metal 27.5 2019 Wheels and Saddle

The Kenda 27.5” x 2.1” MTB tires on this MTB are heavily treaded and this helps in rolling over rough trails easily. The 27.5” circumference is also ideal for fast rides on rough urban roads.

The XMR Saddle was ergonomically designed to make sure the rider is sore free when riding over bumpy surfaces.

This Hardtail MTB has extra standover clearance thanks to its slanting top tube. The Tourney 3x8-Speed derailleurs are smooth in trasnmissions. Logan’s Mechanical Disc brakes are powerful enough for fast paced rides on the trails and rough roads. The 27.5’’ x 2.1” tires are both fast rolling and heavily treaded to provide enough traction on rough surfaces. Priced at Rs.22,550 (as on 13th Februaru 2020) the Montra Metal 27.5” (2019) is an ideal choice for anyone looking to buy an MTB to be ridden on flat trails and rough urban roads.
