Soar up climbs and glide smoothly over chewed-up pavement with Cervelo’s R3. Cervelo's huge, aerodynamic Squoval carbon tubes transition into pencil-thin seatstays for a near-mythic blend of competition-shattering stiffness and cobble-dissolving control. Not only is the R3’s weight impressively low, its comfortable geometry and tapered front end provide precise, controlled handling over all types of terrain, while the beefy Squoval chainstays and Cervelo’s BBright bottom bracket channel every drop of power to the pavement. Shimano’s race-proven Ultegra drivetrain with Rotor’s stiff crankset offer smooth, crisp shifting. Adding to the speed and comfort are fast-rolling Mavic Aksium S wheels, a Fizik saddle, and quality components from FSA. Whether you're climbing the Alps, carving corkscrew descents in the Appalachians, or blazing past your riding buddies in the town-limit sprint, every ride on your R3 will be pure two-wheeled heaven.

I tried a few different models, but this stood out with power to spare. Hitting corners downhill is phenomenally responsive, and the 25-inch tires make it even more of a great ride. Comfortable, too, for a speed bike, and it climbs even better than I thought it would.
I can't say enough good things about this bike. I figured it would handle well and that it would be fast, but what I pleasantly surprised me was how comfortable this bike is. I can put a fast-paced 60 mile ride in and when I'm done I'm not completely worn out or suffe from tingling feet and hands. This bike can do it all comfortably. I tested a half dozen bikes but once I got on the Cervelo R3 I knew my search was finished. I now ride with confidence not apprehension!
I am a road rider. This was an upgrade and holy awesome. The bike just wants to go faster. The transfer of power when you turn the crank is outrageous. The only downfall is that I now go OCD cleaning it when I get home. I was a little nervous about the price but it was worth every cent. I am so happy on this bike.
