Details

Famous for carrying Fabian Cancellara and Stuart O'Grady to victory in the grueling Paris-Roubaix, Cervelo's R3 offers world-class weight savings matched only by its incredible ride quality. Cervelo's rigid Squoval tubes, BBright bottom bracket and Smartwall optimization that adds carbon where it's needed most provide a crisp ride that rockets you forward under even the smallest amount of pedal power. The leaf-spring seatstays and vibration-damping of carbon smooth your ride whether you're gliding over fresh-laid tarmac or hammering over 100-year-old pavé with the world's fastest rouleurs. Plus, the R3 comes with a tapered carbon fork, 3T seatpost, and 3T aluminum stem and bar, SRAM's admirable Rival group and fast Fulcrum wheels so that you can finish off any race with corner-carving precision and a blazing sprint across the line.

Cervelo's Squoval tubes are optimized for the greatest possible stiffness-to-weight ratio.
Large chainstays and thin seatstays give you the best of both worlds: more power transfer and increased comfort.

The R3's massive BBright bottom bracket junction offers exceptional power transfer and resists lateral flex, propelling you forward. The multi-shaped top tube resists flexing torsionally, and the high stiffness-to-weight ratio lets you climb and accelerate faster.

Cervelo's BBright bottom bracket system asymmetrically widens the BB shell, therefore creating a larger bottom bracket area. This increase in size allows Cervelo engineers to enlarge the non-drive chainstay, down tube, and lower part of the seat tube for a dramatic increase in frame stiffness. These improvements, without an increase in weight, ensure that every watt you produce goes into forward motion.
