Is the RC520 suitable 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 RC520 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.
