The frame was responsive and definitely helped ride fast and contributed to easy climbing on flyovers and other road inclines.
The rigid fork was bladed in shape and made it light at the front.
The Shimano Tourney/Acera 24-Speed drivetrain was smooth in shifting.
The Shimano Hydraulic Disc brakes were safe and balanced to use on dry and wet roads.
The 700x38C tires were fast rolling and had good grip on urban roads
Veloce started its journey back in 2014 to provide affordable premium Bicycles for Cycling enthusiasts, while maintaining all European ISO standards. Veloce have a wide range of MTB and Hybrid Bicycles with quality specs at a reasonable price point. From their MTB range we got to test ride the Veloce Scalo 4.0 and here is what we thought.
The Veloce Scalo 4.0 is built on a lightweight Alloy frame. This frame has thin tubes with neatly welded edges. The conventional geometry was comfortable to ride with a slanting top tube. The frame was responsive and definitely helped ride fast and contributed to easy climbing on flyovers and other road inclines. The rigid fork was bladed in shape and made it light at the front.
The Veloce Scalo 4.0 which we test rode came in a full Blue frame with Black as the secondary colour for the text and graphics. The matte finish paint job along with the contrasting Blue and Black colours made the Bicycle stand out on the road. The thin tubes and colour coded saddle immensely enhanced the aesthetics of this Bicycle.
The Veloce Scalo 4.0 is equipped with Shimano’s Tourney 3-Speed at the front and an 8-Speed Shimano Acera at the rear as derailleurs. This is a mid-level Hybrid Bicycle groupset from Shimano and they shifted smoothly during the test ride with no lags. The Shimano 24-Speed trigger shifters were easy to use.
The Shimano Hydraulic disc brakes at the front and rear were powerful and balanced during the test ride. The reaction time from the levers to the brakes was quick. These brakes were good enough for wet as well as rough urban roads.
The 660mm low-rise Alloy handlebar on this Bicycle was wide enough to give the rider an open chested riding posture.
The Veloce Scalo 4.0 rolls on a pair of 700 x 38C Hohing Hybrid tires. These tires were fast rolling on urban roads and the tread patterns were enough to get good traction on tar surfaces.
The stock Veloce Saddle was wide and had a lot of cushioning to make the rider is comfortable and soreness free on bumpy rides.
This a Hybrid Bicycle built on a lightweight Alloy frame which is comfortable to ride.
