    The Rca

We’ve taken the lightest and made it lighter, while maintaining the optimal stiffness we achieved with the R5ca. We’ve developed Squoval™, giving our lightweight tube shapes a new aero profile.  We’ve taken what we know from our category-leading aero S-series bikes and seamlessly integrated this knowledge into our pioneering light weight R-series.

The Rca is light and stiff, yet so forgiving you’ll almost forget that the frame is there – and with enough aero for the wind to forget as well. A lightweight bike ready for heavy road surfaces, the Rca withstands the roughest cobbles or potholes. 

The most advanced concurrent engineering tools and iterative design processes don’t mean you will be faced with complex assembly. The Rca proves itself with a truly innovative design in that it offers a real performance benefit when built using standard parts. This means you have the flexibility of using the components you have now, while knowing that the frame design anticipates the components of the future. We’ve even moulded in an integrated magnet that works with crank-based power meters.

The result: A lighter bike for easier climbing, optimum stiffness for efficiency and comfort, and our new aero profiles to make you go faster.  Each one of our limited edition Project California series bikes is carefully hand laid up in Cervélo’s Project California engineering lab, resulting in the highest possible quality control.

  • Squoval


    A library of shapes that combine the attributes of a square and an oval to achieve an ideal balance of stiffness, weight, and aerodynamics.

  • Carbon Dropouts

    Carbon Dropouts

    Tough, compression-molded dropouts save weight with no sacrifice in strength versus traditional metal dropouts.

  • Future-Proof Cable Management

    Future-Proof Cable Management

    Future-Proof Cable Management ensures your frame is compatible with all current and future derailleur and brake systems.

  • Reduced-Friction BB Guide

    Reduced-Friction BB Guide

    Smooth shifting that is easy to set up is no accident. Designing shifting requires a detailed approach. Small details have a huge impact.


  • Evolved Steerer Design

    Evolved Steerer Design

    Different frame designs call for different steerer dimensions. We use the right dimension in the right application.
