As a world-class climbing weapon, lightweight design is a top priority for the R Series. That’s why the R3’s stiffness-to-weight ratio has been fine-tuned to yield frames that are 10% lighter while maintaining the same race-ready stiffness.
The established Cervélo fit has been enhanced with a new geometry highlighted by a lower standover height and extra toe clearance. Then there’s the R3’s new handling geometry and wider tire clearance, which improve stability and performance-boosting comfort.
Road riders at all levels are now embracing the versatility of wider, lower-pressure tires in order to reduce fatigue and, in turn, boost power output. And since wheel manufacturers’ wind-tunnel testing has shown that wider tires can actually deliver aero benefits, tire clearance for the new R3 has been increased to 28mm without sacrificing performance.
