The 2015 model is the third generation of the R3 and is derived from the award-winning, super lightweight RCA (947g for a 56cm frame, forks, hardware, and paint combination!) frame which first launched in 2010, and which retails for £6500 for the frame and forks alone!
Using the basic principle that certain shapes are better at resisting forces such as bending and twisting, Cervelo has developed tube shapes that are structurally resistant to unwanted forces whilst also being aerodynamic. Cervelo calls their combination of square and oval tube shapes ‘squoval’ and the R3 shares the same ‘squoval 3’ tube sections as the R5 and RCA.
The R3 comes with Flo 60mm carbon wheels.
