R3 ALL DAY, ALL ROADS, ALL ROUND
With three Paris-Roubaix victories and multiple Editors’ Choice Awards, the R3 continues to outperform expectations. With what Bicycling terms a “satisfying combination of efficient pedaling, reliable components, and lively handling,” the R3 surprises with a lightweight frame that responds to every pedal stroke. Bottom line: the renowned ride quality of the R3 now delivers additional aero and stiffness benefits — with no compromises.
INNOVATIONS THAT WORK
Using the RCA-engineered Squoval family of tube shapes, the R3 increases torsional stiffness for precise handling. Sleek, internal Future-Proof cable routing enables easy setup and maintenance to get you onto the road quickly — and the consistent performance to keep you there.
THIS ASYMMETRICAL 79MM BOTTOM-BRACKET STANDARD YIELDS STIFFER AND LIGHTER FRAMES AND CRANK SYSTEMS.
Cervelo developed BBright to take advantage of the fact that oversized frame tubes are stiffer and lighter. On the right side, frame tubes are already as wide as possible; any wider and they’d hit the chainrings. But on the left side there are no chainrings, so BBright makes use of this extra space by extending the BB shell by 11 millimetres, nearly doubling the width of the left chainstay. At the same time, the drive-side dimensions of the frame are identical to BB30 and provide plenty of clearance for a wide range of cranks, including those with power meters.
FUTURE-PROOF CABLE MANAGEMENT
ENSURES YOUR FRAME IS COMPATIBLE WITH ALL CURRENT AND FUTURE DERAILLEUR AND BRAKE SYSTEMS.
Future-Proof Cable Management achieves compatibility across mechanical, electronic and hydraulic brake and derailleur systems. Future-Proof frames include interchangeable cable stops that snap into place and are easily swapped out by hand to accommodate upgrades. You can buy with confidence, knowing your bike is easily upgradable and can be enjoyed with the latest technology for years to come.
EVOLVED STEERER DESIGN
THE FORK STEERER’S DIAMETER HAS A NOTICEABLE EFFECT ON A BIKE’S HANDLING. EVOLVED STEERER DESIGN APPLIES THE DIAMETERS AND TAPER DESIGNS THAT BEST SUIT EACH MODEL.
A larger steerer diameter adds torsional stiffness with no weight penalty. A smaller steerer diameter is more compliant and can also be used to reduce headtube frontal area, and in turn, aerodynamic drag. How do we select which size to use? By defining performance goals — weight savings, aerodynamics, stiffness, ride quality and usability — at the start of the frame design process, Cervélo engineers choose the best steerer diameters/tapers to achieve those objectives.
REDUCED-FRICTION BB GUIDE
SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCES CABLE FRICTION IN THE BOTTOM BRACKET, WHICH MEANS SMOOTHER SHIFTING, EASIER SETUP AND LONGER SERVICE INTERVALS.
The Reduced-Friction BB Guide maintains a consistent curve for each cable path by avoiding bends or kinks.
The Cervélo R3 maintains an iconic status the industry — and constantly proves why. Engineered to win the toughest races, it remains a favourite on any road.
