WHAT GOES UP MUST COME DOWN R5 has one job—get to the top, fast. But for all the glory and fanfare that comes with a summit finish, they're rarely the only climb of the day. And while a race isn't usually won on a descent, they can certainly be lost. A climbing bike that can't carve a hairpin is a bit like a cup of decaf coffee. This is the fourth iteration of the R5, and while weight and stiffness have varied over the years, the handling, poise, and unmatched prowess on a descent have been consistent since day one.
WELCOME TO THE ERA OF SPEED IN GRAVEL. A new breed of rider is emerging—one who loves the freedom and exploration that gravel culture was founded upon but who has a hunger to ride wild, to go full bore, and to explore not just geography but personal limits. This frontier requires a new kind of gravel machine, one engineered not to roam the trails, but to slay them. For these athletes, we created a machine engineered for pure, unapologetic speed—ready to take down finish lines, KOM leaderboards, PR’s, and FKT’s. A single bike that first generates maximum speed, then controls that speed across the variable conditions gravel athletes must conquer. A machine built without limits, for the riders willing to test them. ROAD RACING INSPIRED. GRAVEL RACING REFINED. It’s time to change the paradigm of gravel bike design from hauling gear slowly to empowering athletes quickly. Leveraging vast knowledge from road racing, the Aspero frame is designed with world tour stiffness for greater pedal power transfer, using less and lighter material to aid climbing and accelerating, while maximizing speeds with aerodynamic shapes critical to efficiency at speed. The Aspero lets you choose the tire that best suits the terrain so you're always in control, with clearance for 700c x 42 or 650B x 49 combinations. Since different outside rolling diameters of various wheel and tire combinations affect the bike handling, the fork includes a "Trail Mixer" design that adjusts trail to lessen the impact on handling when swapping between most common tire sizes.
The Caledonia-5 was inspired by our own out-the-front-door rides and built for the way we ride bikes. You could call it an "all road" or "endurance" bike, but when it comes right down to it, the Caledonia is the bike we keep reaching for when we know the odometer’s going well past the triple-digit mark. Long rides invariably have some smooth tarmac, some junk pavement over backroads, a cutty singletrack connector, and maybe even your own local Strade Bianche sector. So we built a bike that could take on all of them, do it well, and fit fenders in case the ominous clouds turn into a downpour 130km into your day. We don’t see road bikes as fragile machines meant only for putting watts into and receiving speed from. They’re an extension of our soul, of the way we want to see our worlds, and the lives we want to live. Sometimes that means cutting across park grass, and sometimes it’s seeing where that dirt road off to the left leads you. The Caledonia-5 is a bike for the modern road rider. Aero Cable Management The Cervelo frame, fork, handlebars, and associated components are designed to hide brake and shift control lines (mechanical, electrical, and hydraulic) from the wind for improved aerodynamics, without sacrificing usability or performance. Performance Fit The Caledonia’s integrated stem and two bearing cap options allow for stacks ranging between an aggressive 7mm and a relaxed 22mm without the use of spacers. With a wider fit coordinate range (stack) of 580mm to 687mm, the Caledonia can be as low as a slammed R3 or taller than our tallest C3. All while looking and being seamlessly fast in the wind. Integrated Accessory Mounts Integrated mounts enable the use of fenders, lights, and computers without compromising the aerodynamics or structure of your bike. The built-in mount systems provide a simple and clean-looking solution in a lighter weight frame.
We created the race-ready P-Series for the athlete seeking speed, storage, value, and comfort. It’s our no-nonsense machine engineered to get you from Point A to B, faster. The P-Series features better air economy, improved stiffness and comfort, and a design that incorporates discipline, focus, style, and swagger. Every pedal stroke propels human and machine through the air with ease, turning watts into wins. Whether your challenge is a long course or sprint event, P-Series comes equipped to carry the load. With a 500ml aero water bottle, 400ml of top-tube storage, and an integrated rear hydration mount as standard equipment, no opportunity to help our athletes win races is ignored. Collapsing the assumption that narrow is aero, the new P-Series leverages all that we learned during the legendary P5 development to deliver a platform that is not only stiffer and lighter than its predecessor but also boasts lower drag. It climbs better, corners naturally, and is faster in every application.
The P5 Disc is a bike focused entirely on one thing: your performance. We applied years of experience in engineering the fastest aero bikes and real-world testing with our pro athletes. The result is a bike that pushes the boundaries in every way. Weight Our engineers dedicated countless hours to testing and data crunching to make the P5 not only stiffer and more aero, but lighter as well. A lighter bike accelerates faster and climbs better to give you every possible advantage on the road. Aerodynamics The legendary aerodynamics of the P5 are fine-tuned to create an aero system that is stiffer and lighter than ever before. Its frame shapes, fit adjustments, and design features work together to reduce drag and enhance your efficiency. Stiffness We refined the stiffness of key points of the frame to create a bike that corners better and transfers power more smoothly. You will feel it from your first pedal stroke: a stiff response that inspires you to pedal harder and go faster.
