2013 Cervélo R3 w/Shimano 105

Very few bikes have the race proven heritage of Cervélo, and even fewer have the heritage of Cervélo's Project California.  But with the R3 this blend of design and technology can be had in a more affordable package.

With the combination of BBright, second-generation Squoval tube shapes, ultra thin seat stays and an optimized tapered head tube result in a bike that is not only stiff and light, but also has the strength and comfort needed to win on Europe's roughest, cobbled roads.

Like all Cervélo's, the R3 provides the responsiveness and confidence needed when descending, cornering, racing for the win or just sheer pleasure during a Sunday ride.



Setting new standards meant re-imagining traditional shapes. By redesigning tube shapes, we make huge advances in frame performance.

Optimized Tapered Head Tube

Larger lower head tube dimensions offer an improvement in stiffness and handling. However, it is not as simple as 'bigger is always better

Ultra Thin Seat Stays

Shapes and materials can add stiffness where it counts. They can also be designed to take stiffness away from where you don't want it.
