Keep smiling mile after mile

Wider tires, vibration-damping frame, and custom geometry are combined with Cervélo's expertise in engineering light, high-performing bikes. This is a bike that will take you where you want to go - the commute to work, a Gran Fondo, or an epic long ride on the weekend. ​
Ideal For: Long rides / Gran Fondos / Century Rides
Ride Quality

Comfort and Confidence

The C3 is a bike you will trust and enjoy on all types of rides. Its geometry is designed for riders wanting to ride further, faster; the frame is tuned to smooth the ride; and wider tires (up to 32mm wide) increase comfort and traction.

Weight

Light and lively

Riding a slow, sluggish bike is no fun. That is why we engineered the C3 frame to be lightweight, as well as stiff where it needs to be. This fine tuned stiffness to weight ratio results in a bike which accelerates quickly and feels agile and responsive.

Usability

Built for you

The C3's user-friendly features include: disc brakes compatible with all commonly used calipers and rotor sizes; thru axles for improved alignment and safety; and a down tube guard and chain stay protector to help prevent damage on mixed surfaces.

Squoval™ shapes on the C3
Design / 1 of 3

Squoval™ IPC

Squoval™ IPC tubes use the same general shapes as our classic Squoval™ tubes but move the fore-aft surfaces closer to the neutral axis to provide improved in-plane compliance. In terms of the riding experience, this makes the frame feel more comfortable, without negatively affecting its lateral stiffness or weight.
Endurance Fit on the C3
Design / 2 of 3

Endurance Fit

Our Endurance Fit prioritizes comfort and stable handling. A shorter frame reach and higher hand position create a more upright riding position, ideal for long days in the saddle.
BBRight™ on the C3
Design / 3 of 3

BBRight™

Cervélo developed BBright™ to take advantage of the fact that oversized frame tubes are stiffer and lighter. With the BBright™ system, larger-sized tubes are used in the seat tube, down tube, and left-hand chainstay. The benefit is increased stiffness and pedaling efficiency in a lighter weight frame. BBright™ is compatible with all major crank standards.

Ride harder, longer

Confidence and comfort are essential when you're spending hours in the saddle - because if you're not feeling good, you can't ride at your best. The C3 incorporates design features that will help you feel comfortable and safe from your first pedal stroke to your last, so that you can ride harder, longer.

  • Clearance for tires up to 32mm wide for better traction and comfort

  • Latest disc-brake technologies, such as the flat-mount standard and thru-axles, for excellent braking in all conditions.

"would be an awesome all-season all-rounder"

"would be an awesome all-season all-rounder"

"Cervélo has separated the C3 from its fast road range, but still incorporated all of the crucial performance aspects. It’s a fast endurance bike with potential to head far beyond tarmac, and with mudguards fitted, would be an awesome all-season all-rounder."
