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.
Take a super-stiff carbon frameset engineered for exceptionally low weight, add an innovative new handling geometry that boosts stability and responsiveness, integrate the latest disc-brake technology, and those epic climbs will quickly disappear behind you as your confidence soars.
We’ve taken everything that makes the S3 such an aero class leader and made it stronger, stiffer and ultimately, faster. Cervélo only launches a new bike when significant performance gains have been made, and by integrating our disc-brake technologies into the world championship-winning S3 we have done exactly that. The S3 Disc is stiffer and more aerodynamic than its rim-brake counterpart, while continuing to make the most of the lightweight design rooted in our Project California research facility. All of this translates to superior handling and control, giving you the confidence to pull away from the peloton or put the hurt on a Saturday morning group ride.
With improved stiffness, aero performance, handling and control, the S3 Disc combines savage speed with pleasing versatility.
Free from the design constraints of rim brakes, the S3 Disc has been re-engineered to be stiffer, lighter and more aerodynamic. In a word, to be faster.

Countless hours of research and testing are reflected in the peerless versatility and compelling potential of the ultimate endurance road bike. Designed to inspire confidence through a new endurance fit that delivers predictable, stable handling, the C5’s frame is one of the lightest of its kind on the market today. Combine this with fine-tuned stiffness, a uniquely integrated disc-braking system and the compliance of 32mm tire clearance and Squoval tube shapes, and you’ll relish every moment of those long days in the saddle.
The C Series’ more value-conscious endurance model is the perfect fit for serious cyclists looking to extend their seasons and go the extra mile. The C3’s endurance fit, 32mm tire clearance, lower bottom bracket and longer chainstays inspire confidence while delivering a longer, more comfortable day in the saddle, while uniquely integrated disc brakes provide exceptional control without sacrificing performance.
