Shenzhen SUBITE Bicycle Development Co., Ltd. was established in 2012 in China owned by Justin Sun. Sunpeed Bicycle’s factory is located in Shenzhen, China. The brand SUNPEED means the SUN and SPEED. The brands inspiration comes from the word SUN which is the source of all light, while SPEED means fast. We got the opportunity to test ride the Sunpeed Triton – Shimano Claris Road Bicycle and here is what we thought.

The Sunpeed Triton – Shimano Claris has been made using Aluminium Alloy, which is perfect to achieve an excellent speed-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 thin tubes amade the Bicycle look sleek and lightweight.
This Sunpeed Triton comes equipped with Shimano Claris front and rear derailleurs. This 16-Speed Bicycle is fast when on the road, tackling climbs and flat roads with ease. The shifting was lag-free. The 16-Speed shifting is controlled by Shimano Claris single lever Paddle Shifters which require minimal effort to shift.
The Sunpeed Triton comes equipped with Tektro Road specific Caliper brakes. When tested, both interval and abrupt braking was sufficient while remaining stable and in control. The braking was as effective on both dry and wet terrains on the test ride.
