The new Cervelo R5×

The new Cervelo R5 has been one of the most eagerly anticipated bikes of all time. Four years ago, when Cervelo released the now old R5, it stood alone as a bike that was light, stiff and aero without compromising ride quality. Now though, it's time for the new R5, which improves on the already legendary handling while making it both stiffer and lighter. The R5 is a race bike, pure and simple, but Cervélo doesn't forget that the majority of people riding it are not racers. As such, thin seat stays, a seatpost designed to flex and the ability to run 28mm tires will smooth even the harshest road surfaces.

For the first time, the R5 comes in a Disc Brake option as well as a rim brake option. Currently available are the SRAM eTap and Shimano Dura-Ace mechanical builds, with Di2, disc brake and frameset options coming over the next few months.
