Cervelo R5 Dura Ace 9100 Road Bike 2018
Elite, premium performance and race pedigree, the Cervelo R5 is the bike found in the stable of Team Dimension Data. Commanding a fearsome reputation thanks to this frame's predecessor, the Cervelo R5 Dura Ace 9100 Road Bike makes some impressive gains thanks to a refined approach to composition, geometry, and of course, advancing carbon technology. Equipped with high-quality Shimano Dura-Ace 9100 mechanical componentry, this bike is a fast-paced aero road machine, for battling at the thicker end of things.
Based and built around Cervelo's carbon fibre Squoval tubing, the all-new Cervelo R5 cuts weight and promotes an incredible rigidity in their machine. 21% stiffer at the head tube, 13% stiffer at the bottom bracket, and with an impressive integral strength leading to a far more efficient energy transfer through the frame, you can be sure that your ride will be the most responsive you've ever experienced.
A new rider first engineered geometry assuring you of a fine-tuned feel on the road, giving you the ability to ride on in greater comfort during those long, all-out efforts in the day. With an aerodynamic profile designed to provide a 44-gram improvement over last year's model, the new R5 and it's Squoval tubing provide a clean and clear-cut surface for you to forge onwards down the road.
Fully geared out using Shimano's Dura-Ace 9100 mechanical componentry, this bike provides not just a strong and dependable core construction but an extremely reliable, clean and smooth transmission, with a direct and broad gearing base allowing you to really attack the climbs, and put your power through your machine. Shifting cleanly even under load, this component list hits the highest standards set for mechanical componentry, you can be sure of a top rate transmission every time you dial in your gearing.
Finished with Cervelo's purpose made carbon componentry, the R5 road bike is equipped with a carbon stem, handlebar and seat post, further keeping the weight low, and the rigidity total. Rolling on Mavic Ksyrium Elite wheels, you are assured of a strong and aerodynamic wheelset on which to perform consistently at your best possible level. Sealed cartridge bearings and quality hubs offering you fast and reliable engagement, you can be sure of a fast, deep rimmed aero road bike for riding hard and fast.
