Product description

 

The Cervélo R5 Frameset is in the stable of bikes for the Dimension Data team, which, under the MTN-Qhubeka banner, took Cervélo to WorldTour races like the Tour de France in 2015. It’s a classic road bike, which for Cervélo means that it is traditional in looks only.

The “classic” designation is because the tubing shapes are smaller than you’ll find on their S5. But at the same time, the Squoval 3 tubes are shaped for the job of resisting your inputs, damping road shock, and aerodynamics. With the advancement to Squoval 3, the R5 saves 7.5 watts of effort, which helps all the time.

In terms of comfort, the spindly seat stays and 27.2 seat post help keep your rear comfy. And the lower 1 3/8” headset race (paired with a 1 1/8” upper) means that little road vibration comes up from the fork. Headset is included. Likewise, the fork has been designed to maximize lateral stiffness while still allowing for some vertical comfort.

With stiffness, the BBright bottom bracket and the beefy bb juncture helps with pedaling efficiency. VeloNews called it "hyper-stiff when out of the saddle, but not punishing over bad pavement."  The trick here is the way the shaping and ply arrangement at the BBright bottom bracket for a 9.5% increase in stiffness compared to the previous R5. Bottom bracket is not included

As with all Cervélo’s these days, the cable routing is internal, both for aerodynamics and cleanliness. They’ve worked hard on routing mechanical cables, with a super-smooth under the bottom bracket guide to keep the shift action nice. At the same time, the stops can be pulled and plugs mounted for electronic shifting. The battery goes inside the seatpost, which comes with the frame.

The frame, completely finished, and with all the fittings installed weighs a barely-there 750g. It’s as if helium impregnates the tubing.
