Everything fine

Good bang for the buck

A defective component which ultimately costs me €700

Very disappointed with the Van Rysel/Decathlon support. Quick summary of the facts: - I receive my RCR Force AXS (€5000) assembled which I will pick up from Décathlon Paris Aquaboulevard - I arrive home and put all the components into service (the 2 electric derailleurs and the power sensor) - To put the power sensor into operation, you must unscrew a round tip, remove the insert below the battery and reassemble everything - When unscrewing the round tip of the power sensor, it is impossible to unscrew it, it is stuck. I still manage to move the whole thing by hand so I have the impression that I can unscrew it, but in fact it's the entire part that I'm removing without knowing it! So I take a tool to unscrew it, thinking that it's normal for it to be well screwed because it's new, and the whole part ends up unscrewing but not just the tip - Thinking that this is not normal so I go to Decathlon Paris Aquaboulevard. For 2 hours they also tried to unscrew the tip and ended up removing the part completely, without being able to unscrew it. Except that no one knew, but damaged part = you have to change the entire crankset including the power sensor, according to SRAM, which does not sell the simple spare part - The workshop then initiates an after-sales service procedure (thanks to Hugo and Paul from the workshop for having spent so much time there), where they call the Regional Workshop (which does not know), SRAM (which does not want to take charge), then the Van Rysel brand, which finally decides the next day not to take charge Result: I find myself with a €5000 bike which had a defective part at the start (confirmed by the workshop which never managed to unscrew it), with a brand which does not want to know anything, who stupidly applies the instructions of his SRAM supplier while everyone sees that there is a problem at the start. So they let me go back into the wild with my defective bike, without offering me any solution. The part costs €650 + €50 labor = €700, I will have to pay it out of my own pocket if I want to have a 100% functional bike. Really not up to par for a brand that wants to move upmarket but doesn't have the after-sales service that follows. It's a real shame because the products are beautiful, and I saved a long time to afford this bike. I am disgusted. At Van Rysel if you have a problem, it's for you. This is my 2nd Van Rysel, and it will be my last, as long as the service is not up to par. Thank you to L’atelier Paris Aquaboulevard for their help and patience. They did what they could.

A stiff, fast and relatively light bike. You are buying for almost the price of the components themselves. So, if there are no technical glitches and the like, it's a great bike and I can recommend it. The SRAM Force AXS shifts slightly less accurately compared to the Di2 Ultegra, but that's a very nit-picky comparison. 28 can also be used on Czech tanks, but overall it requires a high-quality surface. Of course, it's not the most comfortable geometry, but it has to be taken into account by those who want to swallow hundreds of km on every ride, no matter what they choose in the endurance category.

Very poor quality

The bike is cheap – in every respect. The built quality was extremely poor, be prepared to rework and control everything. My bike had an issue with the seat post (squeeking, imho due to not fitting tolerances of seagoing and frame), which could not be fixed by Decathlon. I have been to a Decathlon shop 4 times - super nice people, not well trained for the new road bikes. The bike was shipped somewhere, those people didn't even work on 2 issues. The front brake had issues (a screw was defect, obviously no quality control here). The bottom bracket wasn't mounted right. So, this purchase was a total disaster and so was the bike. Although the price is very competitive and saves you maybe 1500€ - ask yourself whether this is worth it. Maybe you are lucky and get a good one. Imho the bike isn't worth the money. Decathlon took my bike back and refunded the money without any issues. PS: cleaning this bike is terrible. The surface of the frame needs a lot of attention.

Very good bike but...

Top notch bike. Really nothing to say about the bike and its equipment. Unbeatable value for money. I hesitated before ordering it from Decathlon after-sales service and my doubts were quickly confirmed. It was given to me at Decathlon Montélimar as a simple accessory without suggested adjustments, nor any information, the stickers not removed and grease everywhere. Then to have the brake pads checked and perhaps changed, Decathlon Aubenas offered me nothing other than sending the bike to a workshop I don't know where without the possibility of knowing how long it would take to get it back. It's just brake pads with maybe a bleeder, so I refused. Then finally looking for tubeless tires I didn't find any in the Decathlon stores in Aubenas, Vienne and Beynost. If Decathlon wants to position itself on the high-end market with passionate users, it will have to change its policy. It's a great bike but for these reasons I don't think I'll repeat the experience when changing this one.

In response

Thank you for your response, as requested from you here is my feedback: No, the cycle department team did not find solutions to the problem observed. We therefore issued a refund. Since there is no stock, I am still waiting to recommend a bike. Nor did anyone offer to replace the old one with a new one.

Racing and comfortable

Excellent bicycle, aerodynamic, light and very smooth. Racing geometry (greater than average reach) but surprisingly comfortable even after several hours of pedaling, also thanks to the generous tubeless covers which excellently dampen vibrations and roughness of the terrain. Always stable and well manageable even in strong side winds. Very attractive racing aesthetics. Overall very satisfied with the purchase, quality/price ratio difficult to match.

Very responsive rigid bike,…

Very responsive, and comfortable rigid bike for a rather aero bike, very well equipped. The Force transmission is a real treat, the 404 Firecrests are efficient, their profile is a little high for my use, hilly and mountainous, the side wind grip on descents "even if low given the height 58" requires a lower profile. In short, very satisfied with my purchase.

A real flying carpet

Hello I have just returned from a triathlon course carried out in Vaison La Romaine near Mont Ventoux and I will tell you that in one word a DYNAMITE It responds immediately it is rigid as it should be comfortable once the saddle is well adjusted I climbed the Ventoux by Bédoin without any problem at a regular pace without getting into the red I was a little afraid of being stuck with the 60 mm wheels but ultimately it progresses on its own. So I drove more than 400km in a week and it was a real pleasure For those who are still hesitant, don't wait any longer Best value for money performance I'm leaving tomorrow for a 300km with complete confidence I'm thinking of strengthening myself muscularly to taste the maximum capabilities of this machine Another big thank you to Landry and Johan for their availability and kindness of Décathlon Bessoncourt

Very fast and pleasant bike

Review freshly posted after 15 days of use and 400kms. The bike responds to the slightest request, the performance is really there while maintaining comfort, going from 23 section to 28 is quite radical for comfort! The impression of less good performance on bumps is quickly forgotten when you look at the figures, this bike is a real rocket regardless of the elevation! And what's more, this right-left power sensor, really ideal for quality training. The only negative point at the moment is the brakes which I cannot properly break in/adjust, lots of vibrations and noises...to be continued...

A great bike with unbeatable value for money

A really great bike. Crazy value for money. The aero of the bike is very worked without having the weight on the scale climbing!!! We feel it right away!!! The equipment is just great, the Zipp wheels, the strong SRAM groupset with the power meter!!!! Only the braking lacks a little bite. On the flat the bike spins and after 30 the inertia of the wheels does the rest. On the plains or in the mountains, the bike does really well. The bike is rigid and responsive enough to have good acceleration. It also remains quite comfortable. In short, a bike really well designed to enjoy both leisure and racing. For me only one downside. The assembly with the Michelin power cup which requires 5 bar mini with Zipp wheels which do not accept more than 5 bar…. In conclusion, don't go looking for well-known brands, you will pay at least €1500 more to have a similar package.

Fantastic bike for a really good price.

The bike rides fantastic, it is quit stiff and reacts very directly but not nervous. The ZIPP wheels are great and the SRAM Force is performing perfectly. At first I thought the 48/35 combination of SRAM would give a lower top speed (mentioned in some comments) but the cassette with 10 as smallest gives the same gear ratio as 53-11 on a shimano ultegra, meaning that a top speed of above 60km/h is still achievable in sprints ;) Only downside is the availability, it took me quit some waiting and effort to require this bike due to lack of stock. Overall this is a great bike for a really good price.

Bad tracking

The RCR is a very good bike, but the follow-up in the event of a problem is not up to the standard of the product. I have a problem with a noisy transmission on my bike and after two visits to the workshop my problem has not been resolved and no solution has been offered to me. After contacting assistance, he advised me either: -To return my bike to a regional expertise center, without certainty of the qualification of the people present on site and therefore of the resolution of my problem. Nor any estimate of deadlines. -To go through a mechanic at an independent bicycle retailer and check with after-sales service to have the bill reimbursed. This raises questions about the notion of guarantee.

Van Rysel RCR Force

Excellent machine, both aesthetically and functionally. Price/quality ratio, unbeatable. Very satisfied with the product.

a great success!!!

Bike tested on the Artois 2024 loop the pros: The bike responds perfectly to restarts and is super versatile, the ZiPP wheels respond really well, the price is very good value for money the - the 48/35 crankset is limited for races, arriving at more than 45km/h it grinds hard, see to propose a 50/37, but this remains a personal opinion the matte black color is great, but very messy, prepare your rags ;)

Additional Product Information

Composition

Frame (for bike): 100.0% Carbon

The rcr range

Made for winning races. The RCR lineup uses an aerodynamic frame that has been refined by aerospace engineers to make you as efficient as possible on epic climbs, leading out the peloton, and sprinting for the finish line. These no-compromise bikes have performance-focused builds that share the same DNA for every rider, from first-time Gran Fondo entries through to the pros on the Decathlon AG2R La Mondiale Team at the Grand Tours.

What's the difference between the rcr and the rcr pro frame?

Carbon road bike frames are defined by two main factors; geometry and carbon layup. The RCR and RCR Pro share the same geometry, that means you’ll be in the exact same position on your RCR bike as the elite riders will be in on their RCR Pro bikes at the Tour de France. The difference is in the layup. The RCR uses high-modulus fibers while the RCR Pro uses a more complex process that improves the overall stiffness of the frame in the world's fastest races.

Beautifully lightweight frame

The RCR frame manages to squeeze performance and efficiency into a lightweight package that tips the scales at 1.82 lbs in a size Medium. Go for the RCR Pro and drop down to a brilliantly light 1.74 lbs, with still enough tire clearance for 33mm tires. Add in the carbon fork that weighs only 13.4 oz and you’ve got a fantastically light bike that’s made for charging up mountain passes.

Always in control cockpit

Hold the fastest line around bends and pick your way through the peloton with the integrated and size-specific cockpit. The Deda x Van Rysel Superbox EVO stem and Deda Superzero RS carbon bars help dampen feedback from the road. XS bikes come with an 80mm stem and 400mm bars. S bikes have a 90 mm stem and 400 mm bars. M bikes are fitted with a 100 mm stem and 420mm bars. L frames come with a 110mm stem and 420mm. While the XL models are finished with a 120mm stem and 440 mm bars.

Sram force groupset and quarq power meter

Once you experience an electronic groupset, you’ll never want anything else. The SRAM Force Black eTap AXS groupset keeps your bike feeling incredibly snappy and responsive. Know exactly how hard you’re working and track your training progress with the Quarq power meter that attaches to the crankset and links to the SRAM AXS app. The whole groupset tips the scales at just under 6 lbs to help keep the overall weight of the RCR Force as low as possible without compromising on performance.

Fast rolling carbon wheels

Made for pure speed, the ZIPP 404 Firecrest Carbon wheelset is an aerodynamic wheelset that uses clever design choices to cut through the air effortlessly. 58mm deep, 23mm wide and with a ZR1 DB hub with 66 points of engagement, these carbon wheels are perfect for putting the power down on your next ride. Laced with a set of Michelin Power Cup tires, you’ll be breaking your personal records in no time.

Powerful sram force disc brakes

Combining 160mm front and rear rotors with powerful modulation and excellent control, make the SRAM Force disc brakes an incredibly popular choice for road cyclists. With tactile brake levers that make one-finger braking easy and powerful hydraulic brake pistons give you control when you need them.
