Triad M1 Frame

The Triad M1 has been made using a 6061 Alloy hardtail frame. The frame is durable and sturdy, and can endure rugged trails and flat, harsh riding conditions with ease. The ergonomically designed frame offers a perfect blend of comfort and performance. Additionally, the geometry of the frame ensures hassle free usage on climbs. The frame has the provision to mount a water bottle holder, it also has a bracket mounted kickstand attached to the chainstay.

The Triad M1 comes equipped with a Triad branded front suspension fork with a 80mm travel. At the given price point, 50mm travel would be expected - so, a fork with 80mm travel is a welcome bonus! This suspension fork offers enhanced shock absorption and is ideal for usage on urban roads with potholes and on uneven surfaces of mild trails and paths. This bicycle is available in a single frame size of 18”.

Triad M1 Design

The Triad M1 has been designed keeping in mind the broad appeal of a complementary color scheme. The bicycle comes in a single colour option of Matte Orange with Black graphics. This combination of bright Orange and pitch Black enhances the overall aesthetic appeal of the bicycle. With the high quality of the paint work which is evident from the matte finish on the frame, this bicycle is sure to demand attention when outdoors!

Triad M1 Gearing

The Triad M1 comes equipped with a 21-Speed Shimano Tourney drivetrain whose shifting is controlled by Shimano Trigger shifters. The derailleurs offered precise and smooth performance and the shifting was quick, with no evident lag or glitch. The Shimano Trigger shifters were responsive and easy to use, requiring the slightest push to shift between gears.

Triad M1 Brakes and Steering

The Triad M1 comes equipped with Mechanical Disc brakes at the front and rear. The brakes offered smooth and comfortable feathered braking. However, I feel the need for added braking power when it comes to sudden or abrupt braking. The brake levers are well positioned and are easy to operate, requiring only two fingers to use.

This bicycle is equipped with an MTB Sport 680mm handlebar. This handlebar offers a comfortable, ‘open-chested’ riding position. Additionally, the width of the handlebar ensures precise control and maneuverability and stability. The handlebar grips are well-cushioned and offer sufficient palm support with good absorption, thus ensuring minimal transfer of vibrations to the rider’s arms. The cushioning is ideal for urban riding conditions, there could be a need for additional cushioning when used on mild trails and uneven surfaces.

Triad M1 Wheels and Saddle

The Triad M1 rolls on a pair of 26” x 2.0” MTB tires from DSI that are attached to Double Walled Alloy rims. These well-treaded tires offer good grip and stability on rugged and uneven surfaces. Climbing and cornering was precise and felt stable and in control. The Quick Release enabled wheels ensure easy and hassle-free removal of the wheels.

This bicycle is equipped with a PU foam cushioned Saddle that has been ergonomically designed to ensure a comfortable on-saddle experience. The width of the saddle comfortably accommodates the rider’s sit bones with adequate cushioning to ensure comfort and minimal vibrations transferred. A quick release option on the seat post makes it easy to adjust the saddle height while on the go.
