The new Cervelo R5 Dura Ace Di2 22G Road Bike brings the RCA’S Project California technology to a broader audience, integrating category-defining lightweight engineering, stiffness, ride quality, and new aerodynamic Squoval3™ tube shapes.
Light and stiff, the R5 now offers a 7.4 Watt aero advantage thanks to the latest Squoval™ technology family of tube shapes. With a 9.5% stiffer bottom bracket compared to the last generation R5, this bike is perfect for acceleration, climbing or on the attack, while a 15% increase in torsional head tube stiffness offers improved handling.
The R5's new fork shape improves side stiffness and front compliance while maintaining aero performance. Future-proof cable routing is ready for mechanical, electronic and hydraulic gears so it is no wonder the R5 is a favourite among the Grand Tour riders of Team Data Dimension.
All of these elements combine raising the bar on the legendary ride quality of the R5 series bikes. With its lively, comfortable feel, phenomenal low weight and superior stiffness, the R5 delivers on Cervélo’s promise of faster, lighter, stiffer, and stronger bikes.
