R-series bicycles are engineered to optimize strength, stiffness and comfort, while offering low weight in every situation. An R-series bicycle offers the best of our Project California engineering.
The R3 features BBright™ and the same exclusive second generation Squoval™ tube shapes as our R5, to combine all the benefits of a stiff and light bicycle with the strength and comfort needed to win on the cobbles of the roughest roads in Europe. Built on the lessons learned at Project California, its renowned comfort comes from using ultra-thin seat stays along with an optimized 1 3/8”steerer tube. Stiff, light and comfortable, this bike provides the responsiveness and the confidence needed when descending, cornering, racing for the win, or just sheer pleasure during your Sunday ride.
Unparalleled stiffness to weight ratio to assist climbing
Strong enough to handle the worst cobbled roads
Built in comfort for a smoother ride
Exceptional record in world tour classics
Bbright system optimization for efficient power transfer
Cervelo R3 Engineering Features:
Optimized Tapered Head Tube: Larger lower head tube dimensions offer an improvement in stiffness and handling. However, it is not as simple as 'bigger is always better'.
Squoval: Setting new standards meant re-imagining traditional shapes. By redesigning tube shapes, we make huge advances in frame performance.
Ultra Thin Seat Stays: Shapes and materials can add stiffness where it counts. They can also be designed to take stiffness away from where you don't want it.
BBright: BBright optimizes system stiffness and weight while allowing for the largest range of crank compatibility in a modern press fit system.
