Cervélo R5 Ultegra 8000 features

  • Lighter, stiffer and more aerodynamic, Cervélo tell us this is the stiffest rim-brake road frame they have ever produced, thanks to its new Squoval Max tube shapes
  • Why, because stiffness = faster acceleration and climbs
  • New pro fit
  • Cervélo-engineered all-carbon aero stem and bar
  • 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
  • Full Shimano Ultegra drivetrain and brakes
  • Unlike previous years when Cervélo slipped in a non-Shimano chainset, this year's model features a proper Shimano Ultegra 8000 crankset with 52/36 chainrings and an 11-30 cassette to offer super slick shifting over a wider range of gears
  • Mavic Ksyrium wheels with matching Yksion Elite Guard deliver the undoubted benefits of a proper wheel system

Here's how Cervélo describe the R5 Ultegra 8000 2018


The R5 makes no compromises as an ultralight race machine first and foremost. Team Dimension Data's World Tour riders also praise its new pro fit, stable and responsive handling, and unrivalled stiffness. No wonder Bernie Eisel calls it "the perfect bike for stage racing,” with Omar Fraile demonstrating as much by powering it to glory in the 100th Giro d'Italia.


From geometry and technology to components and features, the R Series has been fundamentally re-engineered, revised and reinvented. These World Tour race machines have always been incredibly light and stiff, and now, after extensive research and testing, the R5, R3 and R2 are breaking new ground by delivering the ultimate all-round ride experience. The roads haven't changed, but the game has.


The new R Series epitomizes our definition of exceptional ride quality: When a bike feels perfectly in tune with its intended use. With wider wheel clearance, a versatile range of fit options, and a fine-tuned frame geometry that delivers confidence-inspiring handling, the R Series uniquely enhances both comfort and elite all-round performance.


These are our stiffest-ever road frames, with stiffness-to-weight ratios that are fine-tuned to a range of high-performance riding styles. The Team Dimension Data pros who helped develop the R Series are adamant that stiffness equals speed, and in the end they got exactly what they want thanks to new Squoval Max tube shapes.
