Winner of the 2014 Enthusiast Category: The Cervélo R3 Ultegra
“The R3’s satisfying combination of efficient pedaling, reliable components, and lively handling lifted it to the top of this category for the second straight year. The bike felt just as pleasant noodling down quiet lanes as it did when we were pushing the pace on a steep ascent.The frame did a commendable job of blunting the sting of cracks in the pavement and several testers noted the comfortable ride. ‘You may not buy this bike to race on,’ one said, ‘but it’s nice to know it could handle one.'” – Bicycling Magazine
The lessons of the Project California RCA have now been applied to the R3. Using the Squoval™ 3 family of tube shapes, the latest R3 saves you more than 7 watts while increasing more torsional stiffness for precise handling. Sleek, internal Future-Proof cable routing enables easy setup and maintenance whether you’re running mechanical, electronic, or hydraulic lines. Bottom line: the renowned ride quality of the R3 has been defined even further to give you more. More aero. More road. More machine.
