R2 PRO-LEVEL PERFORMANCE
STIFF AND RESPONSIVE
As a pro-calibre climbing weapon, the R2’s fine-tuned stiffness makes the most of every pedal stroke. And with clearance for 28mm tires, you won’t flinch on less-than-perfect pavement while exploring uncharted roads
PUTTING IT ALL TOGETHER
Our engineers went through dozens of frame iterations and conducted hundreds of hours of CFD and wind-tunnel analysis to skillfully balance the fit, handling, stiffness and aero performance of the R2 without adding weight. Underlying all of this are new Squoval Max tube shapes, which have been redesigned to fortify cross-sections and push the R2 to new heights.
A COMPLETE PACKAGE
Details matter when it comes to pro-level performance, which is why the R2 includes dependable Shimano RS010 wheels and a crisp-shifting 11-speed 105 groupset.
If you’ve ever felt nervous about hammering out of the saddle, get ready to leave that feeling behind. On the R2, pro-level performance and confidence go hand in hand thanks to stable, responsive handling and a versatile elite fit that lets you push, and break, your limits.
The established Cervélo fit has been enhanced with a new geometry highlighted by a lower standover height and extra toe clearance. Then there’s the R2’s new handling geometry and 28mm tire clearance, which improve stability and performance-boosting comfort.
Road riders at all levels are now embracing the versatility of wider, lower-pressure tires in order to reduce fatigue and, in turn, boost power output. And since wheel manufacturers’ wind-tunnel testing has shown that wider tires can actually deliver aero benefits, tire clearance for the new R2 has been increased to 28mm without sacrificing performance.
The R2’s stiffness-to-weight ratio has been meticulously tuned to maximize the efficiency of every pedal stroke and boost confidence in cornering and overall handling. If you’re looking to feel more connected to the road, look no further.
