New offering from Decathlon could be one of the best value disc brake road bikes out there

The new Triban RC 500, priced £529, looks extraordinarily good value for money. Take a look at it before we send it out for review.

Check out our story: Decathlon rolls out new disc-braked Triban RC 500 and Triban RC 520 bikes 

The Triban bikes, sold exclusively through Decathlon stores, used to be called B'Twin Tribans, but Decathlon has now shelved the B'Twin name.

Triban's have gained a reputation over the past few years for offering exceptional value. Take a look at the £249 Triban 100 road bike that we reviewed recently for evidence of that. 

The Triban RC 500 promises a lot. We'll have a full review here on road.cc in the next few weeks. In the meantime, get more details at www.decathlon.co.uk
