New Cervélo Áspero

Cervélo’s brand new Áspero builds on their pedigree as designers and builders of some of the fastest bikes in the world with a gravel bike that is unashamedly about one thing…riding FAST.  As Cervélo themselves put it:

WELCOME TO THE ERA OF SPEED IN GRAVEL – A new breed of rider is emerging—one who loves the freedom and exploration that gravel culture was founded upon but who has a hunger to ride wild, to go full bore, and to explore not just geography but personal limits. This frontier requires a new kind of gravel machine, one engineered not to roam the trails, but to slay them.  For these athletes, we created a machine engineered for pure, unapologetic speed, ready to take down finish lines, KOM leaderboards, PR’s, and FKT’s (Fastest Known Times). A single bike that first generates maximum speed and then second, controls that speed across the variable conditions gravel athletes must conquer.

The Áspero is Cervélo’s first foray into the emerging world of gravel riding and the design brief was simple – to create the fastest possible bike for gravel racing, in all its forms, from endurance to gravel enduros.  And they have undoubtedly succeeded – the Áspero is lightening quick but super controlled when the power goes down and the trails get technical.  Cervélo have produced a stripped down racing frame that greatly outperforms traditional over-built frames that are more aimed at luggage hauling and heavy impact resistance.

Bike Radar:  “The Áspero does exactly what Cervélo set out to do. This is a race bike first and foremost, but one that’s aimed at gravel.  The chassis is smart and feels firm, stiff and efficient, yet doesn’t feel unmoving or neutral (even a little dead), like some of the pricier lightweight-carbon gravel rigs I’ve tried.”

Cycling Tips:  “Gravel bikes these days fall somewhere on a spectrum that ranges from ultra-capable and adventure-ready, to pared-down and race-ready, and Cervelo is being very clear where its new Aspero gravel machine falls on that spectrum. The generous tire clearance and multi-diameter wheel compatibility are obvious nods to versatility, but whichever wheel and tire setup you decide on, the Aspero is meant for one thing: going fast.”

ÁSPERO ADAPTS – UNPREDICTABLE CONDITIONS. PREDICTABLE CONTROL.
Different outside rolling diameters of various wheel and tire combinations affect the handling geometry of the frame. If the tire size is altered without acknowledging the effect on trail, the result is wild swings in handling – faster or slower – from the design basis trail value, which is problematic for high-speed control.  The Áspero features a two-position “Trail Mixer” that adjusts the rail to compensate for the extreme range of tire sizes ensures a uniform ride experience.

HAUL ASS, NOT CARGO – ROAD RACING INSPIRED. GRAVEL RACING REFINED.
It’s time to change the paradigm of gravel bike design from hauling gear slowly to empowering athletes quickly. Leveraging vast knowledge from road racing, the Áspero frame is designed with world tour stiffness for greater pedal power transfer, using less and lighter material to aid climbing and accelerating, while maximizing speeds with aerodynamic shapes critical to efficiency at speed.

The Áspero can accommodate tire/wheel combos up to 700×42 or 650×49 in size, comfortably.  Of course, there are variables – rim width, tire casing/tread depth – which will affect final clearance. IMPORTANT NOTE – we always recommend there to be 4mm of clearance around whichever tire/wheel combo is installed on the bike.
