The 2018 Cervélo C3 disc, finished with the Shimano Ultegra Di2 8070 groupset is the ultimate endurance bike. That's right, not a bike designed to win World Tours or Olympic Medals but a bike designed for long days in the saddle that leave you as fresh feeling as you were when you got on it. The C3 is a product of years of pro athlete's understanding which produces a bike that skillfully balances performance with ride quality, resulting in a fantastic endurance bike.
The C3’s innovative endurance fit is ideal for long, confidence-boosting rides. Increasing fork and stack length allows for a more upright riding position and a decrease in stand-over height. Confidence is also about controlling speed, which is why the C3 incorporates the latest disc-brake technologies, such as the flat-mount standard and through-axles, to enhance safety, drive-train alignment and performance.
A single-piece rear triangle and wide curved seat stays boost back-end and bottom-bracket stiffness, while through-axles improve lateral stiffness in the disc-specific fork. This bike is stiff where it needs to be, but also comfortingly compliant for those long days in the saddle.
Longer chainstays add trail-balance handling at the front end and boost tire clearance to 32mm, providing room for a standard fender and mount. A downtube rock guard and chainstay protector help prevent potential damage on mixed surfaces, while future-proof internal cable routing delivers smooth shifting every time.
