The new R3 combines pro pedigree and elite performance to thrilling effect. Lighter, stiffer and more aerodynamic than ever thanks to new Squoval Max tube shapes, its top-shelf specs, versatile race fit and stable, responsive handling will have you seeking out hard hills and devouring cobblestones with complete confidence.
PUTTING IT ALL TOGETHER:
Our engineers went through dozens of frame iterations and conducted hundreds of hours of CFD and wind-tunnel analysis to skillfully balance the fit, handling, stiffness and aero performance of the R3 with frames that weigh less than the previous ultra-lightweight model. Underlying all of this are new Squoval Max tube shapes, which have been redesigned to fortify cross-sections and push the R3 to new heights.
LIGHTER, FASTER, BETTER:
Take a super-stiff carbon frameset engineered for exceptionally low weight, add an innovative new handling geometry that boosts stability and responsiveness, and those epic climbs will quickly disappear behind you as your confidence soars.
PREMIUM ROAD PERFORMANCE:
A top-shelf all-round racing machine deserves optimal component packages to maximize performance, and the R3 delivers. A revamped handling geometry balances stability and responsiveness for a pro-calibre ride experience.
This asymmetrical 79mm bottom-bracket standard yields stiffer and lighter frames and crank systems.
FUTURE-PROOF CABLE MANAGEMENT:
Ensures your frame is compatible with all current and future derailleur and brake systems.
Tough, compression-molded dropouts save weight with no sacrifice in strength compared to traditional metal dropouts.
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.
REDUCED-FRICTION BB GUIDE:
Significantly reduces cable friction in the bottom bracket, which means smoother shifting, easier setup and longer service intervals.
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.
