Cervelo C Series

ENDURANCE ENGINEERING

Cervélo has always pushed world-class cycling to new heights, and is now taking it to new surfaces and seasons with the C Series. Designed to inspire confidence through a new endurance fit that delivers predictable, stable handling, these endurance road bikes combine the exceptional lightness and appropriate stiffness engineered into every Cervélo with a uniquely integrated disc-braking system.

 


 

C3

CERVELO C3

 

The C Series’ more value-conscious endurance model is the perfect fit for serious cyclists looking to get off the asphalt and extend their seasons. The C3’s increased tire clearance, a lower bottom bracket and longer chainstays inspire confidence on mixed surfaces while delivering a longer, more comfortable day in the saddle. Speaking of confidence, the C3’s top-of-the-line disc brakes deliver exceptional control without sacrificing performance.

 

The C3’s fit and handling are both products of an innovative new endurance frame geometry

 

ENDURANCE-ORIENTED SIZING

Moving the bottom bracket closer to the ground lowers the bike’s centre of gravity, improving stability and handling. Longer chainstays, a shallower headtube angle and additional fork rake increase trail and boost tire clearance, allowing for a wider range of tire sizes and room for a fender. All of this also produces a very stable, smooth and reliable ride.

CERVELO C5

The C5, is designed to inspire confidence through a new endurance fit that delivers predictable, stable handling.

 

C5 ENGINEERED TO ENDURE

Cervélo has always pushed high-performance cycling to new heights, and is now taking it to new surfaces and seasons with the launch of the C Series platform. The inaugural model, the C5, is designed to inspire confidence through a new endurance fit that delivers predictable, stable handling. It combines the exceptional lightness and appropriate stiffness engineered into every Cervélo – including an all-carbon fork from the pioneering Project California team – with a uniquely integrated disc-braking system.

PREMIUM FRAME – PREMIUM FEATURES

The C5’s fit and handling are both products of an innovative new frame geometry.

ENGINEERED TO ENDURE

The C5 is engineered to extend your season and help you go further, faster on a range of surfaces.

ENDURANCE-CENTRED SIZE AND SPEC

The ultimate endurance road bike wouldn’t be complete without industry-leading components and a fit that inspires confidence wherever the ride takes you.

More on the C Series

 

 

RIDER REACTIONS  – ASHLEY GRUBER

Cervelo engineers – whatever you did with this bike – thank you – I love you.

DESIGN PHILOSOPHY

Cervélo’s most versatile platform occupies a sweet spot between aggressive racing bikes and so-called “gravel grinders,” with an engineering-driven approach to bike design improving stability, comfort, versatility and safety without sacrificing anything in terms of performance.

 

WEIGHT

Single-piece rear triangles and wide seatstays boost back-end and bottom-bracket stiffness, allowing weight reduction to be the focus of the carbon-fibre layup used elsewhere across the Squoval tube shapes.

 

RIDE-QUALITY

Moving the bottom bracket closer to the ground lowers the C3’s centre of gravity, while increasing fork and stack length allows for a more upright riding position and a decrease in stand-over height, all while avoiding the “tower of headtube” look. Confidence is also about controlling speed, which is why the C3 incorporates the latest disc-brake technologies, such as the flat-mount standard and through-axles, to enhance safety, drive-train alignment and performance.

USABILITY

The C Series uses disc brakes and the “flat-mount” standard to ensure compatibility with virtually all commonly used calipers and rotor sizes, and through-axles to improve alignment and safety. Accidental wheel dropouts, for instance, are not just unlikely — they’re impossible.
