History

TRIGON will be a new name for many but has actually been around for a while. The company was founded in 1998 as an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) and started by using its carbon manufacturing experience to create frames and components for some of the biggest cycling brands in the world.

It quickly grew and had a major breakthrough in 2000 when it expanded its team to cover the whole manufacturing and design process. This gave TRIGON the capacity and know-how to start creating its own ranges, building on its existing reputation for manufacturing high-quality carbon products.

By 2018 its design focus had turned to racing, leading to the creation of the Trigon Factory Racing team. In support of this new direction, TRIGON started custom-designing new bikes specifically for racing.

That’s still one of its main goals today, but it’s been joined by a wider ambition in 2023 to support every type of rider, resulting in a broader range of bikes.

This range includes the brand’s latest release, the AR (All-Round) 01, TRIGON’s most premium bike yet. Alongside this there’s also a hill-climb-specific HC and race-orientated RC.

Heading off road, TRIGON also now offers both gravel and cyclo-cross bikes

Highlights

  • In 1998 TRIGON was founded as an OEM company. OEM’s create products for other companies and TRIGON built up its expertise and reputation by manufacturing frames for well-known brands.
  • TRIGON took a new racing direction in 2018 after establishing TRIGON Factory Racing, its new race team. The racing brand now has multiple ambassadors and partners, and has inspired the company’s predominantly race-oriented focus.
  • The new AR01 was unveiled in September of 2022 and immediately caught attention thanks to some unique features, including aero dimples on the head and seat tubes. It’s the most premium bike in the Taiwanese brand’s range.
