Weight: The R Series is focused on offering the best of Cervélo's lightweight engineering. The R3 Disc delivers a sub-1,000-gram frame (size 56, with paint and hardware). With that kind of performance, the hills that used to throw you a Saturday-morning challenge will start looking a whole lot smaller.
The R3 Disc’s through-axles boost lateral stiffness in the disc-specific fork, while the removal of seatstay-mounted rear brakes permits a wider seatstay placement and improves bottom-bracket stiffness by 25 per cent. Then there’s the single-piece rear triangle, the result of a new manufacturing process that eliminates bond joints and produces a stronger, stiffer and more stable back end.
Ride Quality: Start looking for a coffee shop a lot farther from home: This bike is ready for anything you – or the pavé – can throw at it. Our signature slender seatstays offer class-leading compliance, disc technology delivers responsive braking and modulation, and the secure, sure-footed handling and will keep you in the saddle for hours you won’t even notice flying by.
Featuring an Ultegra build from the chain to the 6800 front and rear derailleurs, the R3 Disc offers a spec package that delivers durable, premium performance.

- Carbon dropouts: Tough, compression-molded dropouts save weight with no sacrifice in strength compared to traditional metal dropouts.
- Evolved steerer design: The fork steerer’s diameter has a noticeable effect on a bike’s handling. evolved steerer design applies the diameters and taper designs that best suit each model.
- Reduced-friction BB guide: Significantly reduces cable friction in the bottom bracket, which means smoother shifting, easier setup and longer service intervals.
- Squoval: This library of tube shapes allows cervelo engineers to “dial in” the weight-saving, aero, stiffness and compliance properties that best suit specific areas of a frame.
