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.
