Cervélo designed the R-Series to provide speed without compromising comfort, through the R2's redesigned geometry, promoting handling through a lower standover height, improving stability. As well as this, the R2 is now compatible with 28mm tyres, without sacrificing performance, comfort is improved and the road less travelled is accessible. Efficiency has been boosted through a redesigned bottom bracket shape as well as the way in which the seat and chainstays have been shaped and fixed. The R2 is finished with Shimano's 105 groupset, providing reliable smooth shifting throughout the year with an 11-30T cassette that allows you to spin up the hills and race down them. Finally, Cervélo's alloy performance components finish the bike without compromising weight or quality.
The established Cervélo fit has been enhanced with a new geometry highlighted by a lower standover height and extra toe clearance. Then there’s the R2’s new handling geometry and 28mm tire clearance, which improve stability and performance-boosting comfort.
Road riders at all levels are now embracing the versatility of wider, lower-pressure tires in order to reduce fatigue and, in turn, boost power output. And since wheel manufacturers’ wind-tunnel testing has shown that wider tyres can actually deliver aero benefits, tire clearance for the new R2 has been increased to 28mm without sacrificing performance.
The R2’s stiffness-to-weight ratio has been meticulously tuned to maximize the efficiency of every pedal stroke and boost confidence in cornering and overall handling. If you’re looking to feel more connected to the road, look no further.
