THE CERVÉLO R-SERIES CLASSIC ROAD BIKES

Pain. Pleasure. Defeat. Glory.

We live on a strict diet of road. Like two sides of the same coin, there's pleasure and pain, defeat and glory, and all of it makes us stronger and keeps us going. Till the end.

PREMIUM ROAD PERFORMANCE

The ultimate all-round race machine deserves optimal component packages to maximize performance, and the R5 delivers. A revamped handling geometry balances stability and responsiveness for a ride experience that will make your confidence soar and your rivals curse.

R5: REINVENTING THE CLASSIC

The R5 makes no compromises as an ultralight race machine first and foremost. Team Dimension Data’s World Tour riders also praise its new pro fit, stable and responsive handling, and unrivalled stiffness. No wonder Bernie Eisel calls it “the perfect bike for stage racing,” with Omar Fraile demonstrating as much by powering it to glory in the 100th Giro d’Italia.

STIFFER, FASTER, BETTER

The stiffest rim brake-equipped road frame we have ever produced joins forces with performance-enhancing comfort, confidence-inspiring handling, and world-class lightweight design and aerodynamics made possible by innovative new Squoval Max tube shapes.

R5: ELITE ALL-ROUND ENGINEERING

After years of research and testing on the road, in the lab and in the wind tunnel, we’ve redefined the classic road bike by revolutionizing three interconnected factors — comfort, fit, and handling/stability — while continuing to push the aero envelope with new Squoval Max tube shapes.

  • 21% stiffer at the Head tube
  • 13% stiffer at the bottom bracket
  • 40 gram aero improvement

STIFFNESS

With 21% more stiffness at the headtube and 13% more at the bottom bracket, the new R5 is our stiffest-ever road frame with rim brakes. But that’s far from the whole story: It also incorporates a stiffness-to-weight ratio that has been meticulously tuned to the attacking style of high-performance road cyclists.

RIDE QUALITY

Elite road riders no longer equate comfort with soft, slow bikes. Vertical compliance can reduce fatigue and, in turn, boost power output. Wheel manufacturers’ wind-tunnel testing has also shown that wider tires can deliver aero benefits. For these reasons, tire clearance for the new R Series has been widened to 28mm. Combine this with a Cervélo-engineered aero seatpost, and vertical compliance is further increased while improving aerodynamics. At the same time, a new pro fit and handling geometry will have you charging down chicanes and attacking cobbles with complete confidence.

USABILITY

As well as the freedom to use a wider range of tire sizes, dozens of small, satisfying design details separate good from extraordinary: A subtle-yet-robust chain-stay protector, a sleek fitting top cap, an integrated Cervélo-engineered bar and stem that allows for internal electronic cable routing and easy computer mounting, an aero seatpost with integrated clamp and cover...the list goes on.

FEATURES

BBRIGHT - 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.

CARBON DROPOUTS - Tough, compression-molded dropouts save weight with no sacrifice in strength compared to traditional metal dropouts.

Seatstays and chainstays are bonded into hollow dropouts, instead of the other way around. Bonding these precision-moulded surfaces reduces weight, and gives the internal rear derailleur cable a straight shot through the chainstay and dropout, eliminating bends and cable friction.

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.

SQUOVAL - A library of tube shapes that allows Cervelo engineers to "dial in" the weight saving, aero, and compliance properties that best suit specific areas of a frame.

Square shapes resist bending the best, while round shapes are tops when it comes to torsion. Since different frame tubes see a variable mix of bending and torsional loads, a careful combination of these shapes can offer the best of both worlds. Enter Squoval, which combines the attributes of a square and an oval to achieve an ideal balance of stiffness, weight and aerodynamics.
