Cervelo R3 / racing bike frame

Cervelo R3

EUROBIKE AWARD 2006

EUROBIKE AWARD 2006

The R3 is a carbon road frame optimized for the highest stiffness-to-weight ratio (STW). Every shape, from the Squoval™ (squared-off oval) downtube and chainstays to the super slim seatstays, is driven by the engineering focused on optimizing the STW. The front and rear of the toptube are also Squoval™, but it transitions to oval in the center to counteract the torsional loading there. The R3 seatstays not only help achieve its incredible STW, they also provide one of the highest vertical compliance scores ever. The R3 already is the winner of several tests.
