Cervélo - R5 - Frameset Disc Ltd Edition - 2019
The Cervelo R5 Disc Frameset is truly eye-catching in this limited edition livery inspired by the cobbled classics. Underneath the vibrant paintwork lies a premium road frameset deserving of its place in the pro peloton. Famed for its stable and responsive handling, the carbon fibre of the R5 is formed into Squoval Max tube shapes which deliver unrivalled lightweight comfort. Stiff and responsive, your power is transferred to the road with great efficiency, making this a superb option for racers and enthusiasts alike, and, designed for disc brakes, you can take advantage of more powerful and reliable stopping.
The all carbon fibre construction of both frame and fork delivers a uniform level of quality across the frameset. The high modulus carbon provides a confidence-inspiring ride that handles superbly and the Squoval Max tube shapes can be credited for providing additional strength to the construction while improving aerodynamic performance.
Featuring Cervelo's rider first geometry, comfort and performance go hand in hand. This R5 boasts increased stiffness of the frameset over the previous edition. Notably, at the headset, it's 21% stiffer, providing a direct and responsive steering experience while the 13% increase in stiffness around the bottom bracket improves power transfer. The disc brake specific design means you'll have the confidence to ride fast no matter the conditions.
