Is the RC500 bike designed for bikepacking?

Yes, this bike was designed for bicycle touring on roads, including bikepacking. That means you can install light bags, for example on the saddle, on the frame, and on the handlebars. Thanks to its comfort, the RC500 is the perfect companion for long journeys in the saddle.

This bike is not however a bike for travelling. We do not recommend overloading it with larger travel bags on the pannier rack, for example.

Test product

We cut no corners on testing the RC500.

We also put it through its paces on the road. We tackled some legendary routes (Paris-Roubaix, Tour des Flandres, the Ardéchoise, etc.) as well as our lunchtime rides and even gravel rides and long-distance rides with panniers
