The ultimate all-round racing machine deserves optimal component packages to maximize performance, and the R5 Sram eTap delivers.
Stiffness - With 21% more stiffness at the headtube and 13% more at the bottom bracket, the new R5 is our stiffest-ever road frame with rim brakes. But that’s far from the whole story: It also incorporates a stiffness-to-weight ratio that has been meticulously tuned to the attacking style of high-performance road cyclists.
Usability - As well as the freedom to use a wider range of tire sizes, dozens of small, satisfying design details separate good from extraordinary: Helpful thru-axle installation graphics, a subtle-yet-robust chain-stay protector, a sleek fitting cap, a stem that allows for internal electronic routing and easy computer mounting, an aero seatpost with integrated clamp and cover...the list goes on.
Ride Quality - Elite road riders no longer equate comfort with soft, slow bikes. Vertical compliance can reduce fatigue and, in turn, boost power output. Wheel manufacturers’ wind-tunnel testing has also shown that wider tires can deliver aero benefits. For these reasons, tire clearance for the new R Series has been widened to 28mm. Combine this with a Cervélo-engineered aero seatpost, and vertical compliance is further increased while improving aerodynamics. At the same time, a new pro fit and handling geometry will have you charging down chicanes and attacking cobbles with complete confidence.
