R-series bicycles are engineered to optimize strength, stiffness and comfort, while offering low weight in every situation. An R-series bicycle offers the best of our Project California engineering.
Feel the benefits of extreme light weight engineering with no compromise in stiffness, strength or comfort. You’ll search out hard hills not only to feel the light weight on the climbs, but also the speed and control on the descent. The result: an understated design that allows performance to make the statement. A settled ride that allows you to feel the road while minimizing rough road feedback. A comfort magnified with the ultra-thin seat stays developed to increase vertical compliance and vibration absorption for a smooth ride.
While your R-series bike was obviously built to be light, you won’t feel the need to treat it gently. Thanks to Squoval™ tube shapes and BBright™ technology, the R-series withstands the all-out sprints and hardest attacks with minimum flex. That means no flinching over potholes and gravel roads, the launch power to chase down a break or pull away in a sprint, the stability for effortless straight-line handling and precise speed through the tightest corners
What goes into a light weight and stiff design?
The R-Series showcase Cervélo’s Squoval tube shapes, Evolved Steerer Design, Carbon Dropouts, Future-Proof Cable Management, Reduced Friction BB guide, and BBright™ Core Design Features —all designed to enhance stiffness where it matters for better handling and power transmission and to reduce excess weight at the same time, for optimum lightness and comfort.
