Decathlon Rockrider Race 740 2023 test review Build quality
The Decathlon Rockrider Race 740 2023 is a well made, rational mtb bike with an excellent value for money.
The assembly is unique, as is the color and it is not possible to personalize the bike.
The four sizes available are classic, the minimum.
However, everything is considered in the list price, around 1600 euros, very convenient, but the proposed geometry is not always suitable for the cyclist.
A mtb bike with a medium/low price, but which in terms of build quality and value for money can be compared to higher range bikes.
Decathlon Rockrider Race 740 2023 test review Frame
The frame of the Decathlon Rockrider Race 740 2023 is in carbon fiber, well made, with internal cable routing.
A very good product, well made.
In this version the real weight is 11.5 kg, in size S, in line with the components and with the type of frame.
Decathlon Rockrider Race 740 2023 test review Assemblies
The only assembly available is of good quality, valid, as demonstrated by the competitive weight, certainly not a record, but excellent in relation to the purchase price.
Overall it is a good quality mtb, not particularly sophisticated, but it also costs much less than many other competitors.
The price-quality ratio is competitive.
Decathlon Rockrider Race 740 2023 test review Comfort
Like all front bikes, the ride comfort is lower than a full one, but it doesn't behave badly among the front bikes, even in the face of a rigid frame.
There's not much to complain about, the comfort is in line with the best front mtb bikes in the category, even better than the more expensive front bikes.

Decathlon Rockrider Race 740 2023 test review Performance
The Decathlon Rockrider Race 740 2023 frame has proven to be a truly valid and competitive product, although it is certainly not an innovative product.
A light, stiff and reactive frame, with an excellent geometry that ensures great riding ease and safety.
However, the rigidity of the frame is excellent, which in absolute terms is second to none even with more expensive frames.
On the flat the performances are excellent in absolute terms.
Even uphill performance is excellent, as well as downhill.
It is not a record mtb but for its price it is worth much more than it costs.
A great result.
