With the belief that every product made will influence and shape consumers in various ways, the brand has a wide range of Bicycles on offer catering to a wide demand. We got to check out the Triad M4, read on for our thoughts.
Weight: 15 kgs
The Triad M4 is built on a strong and lightweight Hardtail Alloy frame. MTB’s are supposed to be strong and often presumed to be heavy but this Alloy frame keeps the weight in check. The frame geometry with its slanting top tube was ideal with a combination of comfort and aggressiveness which is suitable for trails and rough city roads. The longer rear triangle and contoured seat tube on this frame is engineered to provide better agility and performance for the rider.
The Triad branded suspension fork on the M4 came with a 80mm travel and also had a useful and smoothly working suspension lock-out which helps in speed and acceleration on flatter surfaces.
The M4 which I test rode came in a full Dark Cement Grey primary colour with a lighter shade of Grey and Orange as the secondary colours for text and graphics. The edgy lines of graphic on the top tube were unique and definitely made the frame look stylish. The colour coded suspension fork and saddle enhanced the aesthetics of the bicycle immensely.
The M4 comes equipped with Shimano Tourney TZ30 3-Speed at the front and Shimano Tourney 7Z50 7-Speed at the rear as derailleurs. These Tourney derailleurs are sleek and shift smoothly. The Shimano trigger shifters were easy to operate with a neat design and clear gear indicator display.
The Mechanical Disc brakes at the front and rear were ideal for precise and safe braking performance on both trails and urban roads. During the test ride, when braking on fast turns and in traffic, it felt balanced and had a quick response time.
The 680mm Alloy handlebar was wide and gave an open chested riding posture while still being comfortable.
The Triad M4 rolls on a pair of DSI 27.5" x 2.1" MTB tires along with double walled Alloy rims. The treading was bulky and evenly spaced out, giving superior traction on smooth and rough urban roads. The 27.5” wheel size ensured easy rolling over rough patches.
The stock Triad Saddle was sporty in design with the perfect length and width to keep the rider comfortable and stable.
This MTB is built on a strong yet lightweight Alloy frame which is comfortable to ride. The contoured seat tube and longer rear triangle provides increased agility and performance for riders. The 80mm front suspension fork comes with a useful suspension lock-out feature. The 27.5” x 2.1” tire size ensured easy rolling over on trails and rough urban roads. Priced at Rs.24,157(as on 16th September 2020) the Triad M4 is an ideal choice for anyone looking to buy a performance focused MTB for fitness, commutes and venturing into trail rides without burning a hole in their pocket.
