Cervélo R5 Ultegra
Cervélo use the letter 'R' to denote Road as in classic race-winning road bikes as ridden by Team Garmin-Sharp at UCI WorldTour level.
The R2 and the R3 are very fine bikes, but the R5 is the undiluted, undisputed best of the best in the Cervélo R-Series range, thanks so its upgraded frame and fork.
The R5 frame might share the same tube profiles and be made in the same moulds as the R3, but the R5's frame and fork's more refined carbon filament and layup help create an even stiffer and lighter weight bicycle.
Now, one of the best proven road bikes made today has become that bit more accessibly priced.
'The new R5 introduces the RCA's frame profile to the R-series line-up. Light and stiff, the R5 now offers a 7.4 Watt aero advantage thanks to the latest Squoval family of tube shapes. With a 9.5% stiffer bottom bracket compared to the last generation R5, this bike is perfect for acceleration, climbing or on the attack, while a 15% increase in torsional head tube stiffness offers improved handling. The R5's new fork shape improves side stiffness and front compliance while maintaining aero performance. Future-proof cable routing is ready for mechanical, electronic and hydraulic. The R5 is a favourite among the Grand Tour riders of Team Garmin-Sharp.'
'The handling is sharp and communicative in a way that transcends confidence and becomes giddy fun.'
'Provides a ride quality that is simply one of the best in the industry...It's hyper-stiff when out of the saddle but not punishing over bad pavement.'
