Vuelta Shimano Trigon Bikes

 

September 2013

 

We are very fond of Trigon bikes here at CycleTechReview.com; after all the team we sponsor, Handsling Racing, all ride them and if something is crap, those lot would certainly say so, then refuse to continue using it. Happily three seasons on they’re still on Trigon’s…

 

But there’s something more that’s very appealing about Trigon; they are one of the original OEM suppliers from Taiwan and ever since the whole industry fell in love with carbon, they have made frames for most of the big name brands that most of you will be riding.

Trigon’s expertise gained through years of experience in carbon construction comes across in their bikes which are simply superb. Its fair to say that all our riders – most having ridden for many years at Elite level – were pleasantly surprised when they first rode their Trigons… So it’s no surprise to us when we see other media giving the bikes a big fat 10 out of 10.

And it would appear that its not just the media that are fond of this relatively little known brand. In the recent Vuelta, Shimano used Trigon frames, badged up as Dura-Ace Di2, as their ‘service de course’ bikes and our man Peter Cole managed to snap the evidence on a recent VIP trip to see the 12th stage with Cycling Costa Daurada.

The model shown appears to be the Trigon RQC-29, which is designated the TR003 for 2014. It’s a classic which Trigon market as their premier non-aero race model and some other boutique brands choose for their main race frames. A TR001 model shares the same mould but uses a ‘less stiff’ grade of carbon for a more comfortable ride.

Trigon do actually sponsor a UCI Continental Team called the Start-Trigon Cycling Team. Registered in Paraguay but based in Belgium, they ride Trigon’s aero road frame, which was called the RQC-31, but for 2014 will be designated as TR002, TR004 and TR005. Naturally there is a model which accepts disc brakes…
