Goodbye B’Twin, hello Triban

In March 2018, Decathlon revealed that it was planning to drop the B’Twin name completely, marketing its entry-level road bikes as Tribans.

Best Triban road bikes

Decathlon’s range of road bikes provides plenty of choice for road cyclists. The Triban RC500 is their entry level offering which comes fully equipped with disc brakes and endurance geometry, making it a comfortable and efficient ride for a seriously good price.

Their other Triban offering is the RC520, which shares the same frame but comes with significant spec upgrades.

At the very top end of the range, there’s the B’Twin Ultra 940 AF (alloy) and CF (carbon), a super lightweight machine that’s built for speed and comes equipped with a Shimano Dura Ace 9100 groupset.

B’Twin 500 shoes

B'Twin's 500 cross-country shoe is a superb option for those on a budget

If you’re looking for a decent shoe for cross-country mountain biking, but don’t have a massive budget, these should be on your radar.

At £50 a pair they’re a fraction of the cost of some of their rivals, yet the performance would never suggest that.
