2018 R2 105 5800 Red
"Employing much of the leading-edge technology and engineering from our Project California facility, the R2 performs to the standards of professional-level riders."
Sharing much of the R3’s leading-edge technology and engineering, the all-new R2 combines value and performance to thrilling effect. Boasting a Shimano 105 platform, category-leading stiffness, and our versatile elite fit and stable handling, this is the obvious choice for any road cyclist raring to ride like the pros.
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.
The R2 offers a complete package including dependable Shimano RS010 wheels and a crisp-shifting 11-speed 105 groupset.
