R-series bicycles are engineered to optimize strength, stiffness and comfort, while offering low weight in every situation. Feel the benefits of extreme light weight engineering with no compromise in stiffness, strength or comfort. You’ll search out hard hills not only to feel the light weight on the climbs, but also the speed and control on the descent. The result: an understated design that allows performance to make the statement. Directly inspired by our Project California technology, the R5 sets the benchmark for the combination of light weight design, stiffness and comfort.
Second only to the R5ca as the worlds lightest and stiffest frame, its construction seems to defy the possible—especially considering the balance of power transmission and the ability to absorb harsh bumps and vibration. Tested and chosen by the top riders from Team Garmin-Sharp-Barracuda to win the “hilly” stages of Grand Tours like the 2012 Giro d’Italia, these riders particularly appreciate its precise cornering, ultimate balance and instantaneous response. Light weight and stiff, featuring BBright, Smartwall™ technology, and optimized second-generation Squoval™ tube shapes, the R5 is a true climbing machine. With a lively feel that transforms sky-high climbs into dream experiences, this bike will meet any challenge you put in its path.
Ultra Thin Seat Stays - Shapes and materials can add stiffness where it counts. They can also be designed to take stiffness away from where you don't want it.
BBright - BBright optimizes system stiffness and weight while allowing for the largest range of crank compatibility in a modern press fit system.
Optimized Tapered Head Tube - Larger lower head tube dimensions offer an improvement in stiffness and handling. However, it is not as simple as 'bigger is always better'.
