A Classic Game-Changer! The new R3 combines pro pedigree and elite performance to thrilling effect. Lighter, stiffer and more aerodynamic than ever thanks to new Squoval Max tube shapes, its top-shelf specs, versatile race fit and stable, responsive handling will have you seeking out hard hills and devouring cobblestones with complete confidence.
Cervélo's engineers went through dozens of frame iterations and conducted hundreds of hours of CFD and wind-tunnel analysis to skillfully balance the fit, handling, stiffness and aero performance of the R3 with frames that weigh less than the previous ultra-lightweight model. Underlying all of this are new Squoval Max tube shapes, which have been redesigned to fortify cross-sections and push the R3 to new heights.
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 stand over 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 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.
The R8000 series of rim brakes are powerful, delivering great stopping power through the superb Novatec R3 carbon clincher wheelset. With a 35mm rim depth, these wheels hit the sweet spot of light weight and aerodynamics, making them true allrounders.
- Full carbon fibre frame and fork with Squoval Max tubing that optimises the stiffness to weight ratio while being highly aerodynamic
- Shimano Ultegra Di2 electronic shifting
- BBRight bottom bracket for extra stiffness
- Novatec R3 Carbon clincher wheelset with 35mm rims
- Cervelo carbon seatpost for added comfort
Compression moulded carbon dropouts are strong and stiff compared to traditional metal ones, delivering more accurate shifting and a more stable rear end. The Shimano Ultegra Di2 electronic groupset shifts instantly at the touch of a button, so you can spend more time enjoying the ride and less time fiddling with the shifters.
