2018 S3 ULTEGRA 8000 Black / Red
"The S3 aero road bike teams category-leading stiffness and ride quality with an award-winning aero frame."
The world championship-winning S3 is back — and even better than before. Combine proven S Series aero performance with the cutting-edge stiffness and lightweight design that comes from our Project California research facility, and you get what Ride Magazine has called “quite possibly The Perfect Bike.” The S3 is ready to put the hurt on a “friendly” Saturday morning ride, or just get you to the coffee shop a little faster. Stiffer, better-riding, aero as ever. All with zero weight penalty.
Incorporating the proven aero features that have made the S Series the pinnacle of aero road bicycle development, the S3 will make it feel like you’re cheating more than just the wind. From the Dropped Downtube to Shielding Seatstays, all frame shapes are designed to smooth airflow over the entire bike and rider as a system. Our Partial Seat-tube Cutout improves airflow around the rear wheel, while allowing for 700x25c tire clearance.
A reward for every pedal stroke: BBright boosts bottom bracket stiffness by 16% over the previous model, practically handing you a bunch sprint victory. Our Evolved Steerer Design boosts front-end stiffness (+23% from previous S3) for confident, responsive handling.
We’re more than happy to destroy the myth that aero bikes can’t be forgiving – even after a long day on less-than-perfect tarmac. Borrowing from the Rca’s rear triangle design, thinner seat stays offer class-leading comfort and compliance.
Designed to move from your training ride to the local circuit, two 11-speed builds (Ultegra and Ultegra Di2) with Mavic Cosmic Elite Wheels and a Shimano Ultegra crank, offer versatility and dependable performance, even under your peak output.
