The R3 disc, designed to put the control at your fingertips and make the most of the power in your legs. Designed with a frame that is not only 18% lighter than its predecessor but one that boosts power-to-weight ratio, meaning you're getting the very most from what your body is exerting. The revised R3 disc geometry helps to promote a lower standover height and extra toe clearance, leaving you sitting a little more comfortable in your saddle, preventing your rides from becoming limited by how far or for how long. Cervélo has also redesigned the tubes that shape the R3 disc. The new Squoval Max tube shapes enhance aerodynamics whilst remaining stiff & compliant through wind-tunnel engineering. The R3 disc frameset is available in a build completely specific to your needs. At the TriStore, we deal with Shimano, SRAM and Rotor parts as well as 3T, Easton and Cervelo's own components with wheels manufacturers including Zipp, Hunt, Mavic and Specialized. The world, as they say, is your oyster.
As a world-class climbing weapon, lightweight design is a top priority for the R Series. That’s why the R3 Disc’s stiffness-to-weight ratio has been fine-tuned to yield frames that are 18% lighter while maintaining the same race-ready stiffness.
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 R3 Disc’s new handling geometry, wider tyre clearance and integrated disc-brake technology, which improve stability, comfort and performance.
Road riders at all levels are now embracing the versatility of wider, lower-pressure tyres in order to reduce fatigue and, in turn, boost power output. And since wheel manufacturers’ wind-tunnel testing has shown that wider tyres can deliver aero benefits, tyre clearance for the R3 Disc has been increased to 28mm without sacrificing performance. Then there are the small, satisfying design details that separate good from extraordinary, such as helpful thru-axle installation graphics and a subtle-yet-robust chain-stay protector.
