Squoval Road Bikes
R-series bicycles are engineered to optimize strength, stiffness and comfort, while offering low weight in every situation. Whether you are sprinting for victory, or climbing the highest cols, an R-series bicycle offers the best collaboration of our Project California engineering. The Smartwall™ optimized second generation Squoval™ tubes place material where it is needed most, and remove it where it is not. This not only allows us to increase stiffness, but maintains maximum comfort in all conditions. Because Cervélo R-series bicycles come in three optimized lay-ups, you are guaranteed to find a Squoval™ bicycle which meets your needs, but exceeds your expectations.
R3 - 2012
To this day, the R3 is engineered to optimize strength, stiffness and comfort while offering low weight in every situation. Built on the lessons learned at Project California, the Smartwall™ optimized second generation Squoval™ tubes place material where it is needed most, and remove it where it is not. We include the Cervélo optimized 1 3/8" steer tube taper for confidence when descending and cornering, BBrightTM to increase bottom bracket stiffness to new levels, and maintain comfort by using thinner than ever lightweight seat stays.
• Low weight to help your climbing.
• Torsional stiffness for safety and confidence while descending.
• BB stiffness to not waste any energy.
• Vertical compliance and vibration damping for comfort on long rides & bad roads.
• Second Generation Squoval™
• Smartwall™ for Carbon
• Cervélo Optimized 1 3/8" tapered Steerer Tube
• Single bend cable routing
• Ultra-thin seat stays
