Research, design, test. Research, design, test. Research, design, test. That's the way its been for Cervélo for the last few years trying to make an already brilliant bike even better ... and they succeeded. 18% stiffer, now with disc brakes and a brand new Shimano Ultegra groupset it really is hard to match the R3 at price, performance or comfort. Utilising the latest disc-brake technology the R3 is off the charts light and is kept reliable in every condition and on every road surface. Now, with the ability to fit a 28mm tyre the R3 is more versatile than ever, meaning you are limited to the roads you want to ride on, not your bike whilst being faster and more efficient.
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 tire 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 tires in order to reduce fatigue and, in turn, boost power output. And since wheel manufacturers’ wind-tunnel testing has shown that wider tires can deliver aero benefits, tire 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.
