Product Description


Cervelo R3 Ultegra 8000 2018

Thanks to its Tour de France winning DNA, the R3 is our best selling Cervélo road bike, upgraded for 2018 with an even stiffer and lighter frame and the latest Ultegra 8000 groupset.

Cervélo R3 Ultegra 8000 features

  • Lighter, stiffer and more aerodynamic full carbon frameset, thanks to its new Squoval Max tube shapes
  • Why, because stiffness = faster acceleration and climbs
  • The BBright asymmetrical bottom bracket makes for a stiffer, lighter frame
  • Reduced-Friction bottom bracket guides improve gear shifting
  • The frame's internal cable routing is future proofed should you ever consider a Di2 upgrade
  • Mavic Aksium Elite wheelset with perfectly matching Yksion Elite Guard 700 x 25c tyres delivers all the benefits of a system built wheelset

Shimano Ultegra 8000
Famed for its smooth-shifting reliability, the Shimano Ultegra 2x11 drivetrain (including chainset and cassette!) has been upgraded for 2018

  • Both front and rear Ultegra 8000 mechs imitate the skeletal lines of Dura-Ace and offer even smoother shifting than previous versions
  • This makes it een faster than Shimano 105 when it comes to delivering a quicker downshift onto the smaller ring under pressure
  • The brake lever hoods have been redesigned to offer a more comfortable grip - even if you forget your track mitts
  • Ultegra dual-pivot rim brakes work so well, they'll make you wonder if you really need disc brakes on a road bike
  • The brake arms have been redesigned to take 28mm tyres
  • This year's Cervelo R3 even comes with a Shimano Ultegra chainset with Hollowtech crank arms (in previous years, Cervélo - like many other bike companies - would spec a less exotic chainset to save on costs

Here's how Cervelo describe the R3 Ultegra 8000 2018


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.

New Squoval Max tube shapes have improved stiffness, handling and aerodynamics while making the bike lighter than ever before.


Take a super-stiff carbon frameset engineered for exceptionally low weight, add an innovative new handling geometry that boosts stability and responsiveness, and those epic climbs will quickly disappear behind you as your confidence soars.


Our 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.
