The 2017 Cervélo R3 disc comes from an extremely rich heritage. In 2008 Carlos Sastre Candil won the Tour de France riding the R3 of the time, in the last 7 years the R3 has podiumed 6 times and won 3 Paris Roubaix's, without doubt the greatest spring classic. However, now Cervélo have taken the R3 into a new era, able to design this bike at an exceptionally low weight, whilst providing incredible stiffness and instant stopping power. Kitted out with Shimano Ultegra 6800 groupset and Shimano BR-RS805 disc brakes to match, this R3 is even more reliable in any condition and easy to maintain. Finished off with Hed Ardennes disc wheels and Fi'zi:k antares saddle the R3 is the perfect combination for all year round riding in any condition, on any road surface.
PROVEN PEDIGREE MEETS NEW TECH
The R3 Disc can win on any road, especially now that disc-brake technology has improved stiffness, handling, safety and control.
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.
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.
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.
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.
THIS LIBRARY OF TUBE SHAPES ALLOWS CERVELO ENGINEERS TO “DIAL IN” THE WEIGHT-SAVING, AERO, STIFFNESS 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.
The R3 Disc features our classic road R Series fit, with balanced and composed handling, and highly responsive steering. Our unique stack and reach-based geometry focuses on real riders in real riding conditions.
