CERVÉLO R3 HIGHLIGHTS
The R3 is a climbing weapon. Using special carbon layup and construction techniques, Cervélo reduced the frame’s weight while making it stiffer at key points. The impressive stiffness to weight ratio means precise handling and instant feedback in speed.
Stiff and lightweight, with geometry that promotes stable handling, the R3 urges you to attack on the climb and push the pace on the descent. You’ll also enjoy a smooth ride, with tires up to 28mm wide and a compliant frame to absorb road vibrations.
FOCUSED ON YOU
Cervélo make their bikes simple to own and easy to enjoy. The R3 features a robust chain stay protector; thru axles; future proof cable management system (compatible across all types of shifting systems); and a reduced friction bottom bracket guide.
Cervélo’s Elite Fit is based on extensive observations and analysis of riders’ positions. It offers a wide range of positions for all athletes, from endurance riders to Pro-Tour racers, without compromising handling, comfort, or performance.
CERVÉLO R5 HIGHLIGHTS
Cervélo made the R5 stiffer at key points in the bike while maintaining its featherweight status. In fact, the disc model of the R5 is Cervélo’s stiffest ever road frame. The R5’s careful balancing of stiffness and weight results in a bike that accelerates quickly but is stable and predictable at speed.
18% improvement in head tube stiffness and 26% improvement in bottom bracket stiffness compared to the previous generation R5.
Cervélo values user-friendly and intuitive adjustments.
The thoughtful details of the R5 offer significant benefit to the rider: RAT thru axles for super fast wheel changes, plenty of tire clearance (for tires up to 28mm wide), and an integrated computer mount for uncluttered handlebars.
