Find your glory

Challenge and glory come in many forms: conquering a hard climb, flying down a switchbacking descent, simply pedaling in the fresh air. Whatever form it takes for you, the R2 will be a willing companion, offering high performance and excellent value.
Ideal For: Group rides / Hill climbs
Stiffness

Engineering confidence

The R2 reaps the benefits of Cervélo's extensive knowledge in building stiff bikes. Careful attention is paid to stiffness at the bottom bracket and head tube to create a climbing and descending weapon. You'll feel its rapid acceleration and confidence-boosting handling.

Ride Quality

Balanced performance

Our engineers tried dozens of different designs and conducted hours of testing in creating the R2. The sum of this effort is a light and stiff bike that revels on steep climbs and descents and offers aero advantages when you're in the pace line.

Usability

Built for you

The R2 is upgradable to any shifting system currently on the market. You can run tires up to 28mm wide, for a smoother ride. And the chain catcher will ensure you won't drop your chain at an inopportune time - like when your friend launches a surprise attack up the hill.

Squoval™ Tube Shapes on the R2
Design / 1 of 3

Squoval™ Max

Squoval™ Max tubes are a library of tube shapes that combine the attributes of a square with an oval but with a more aerodynamic leading edge. With these unique shapes, we dial in the ideal balance of stiffness and weight in specific areas of a frame, while reducing aerodynamic drag.
BBRight™ on the R2
Design / 2 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 lefthand chain stay. The benefit is increased stiffness and pedalling efficiency in a lighter weight frame. BBright™ is compatible with all major bottom bracket standards.
Elite Fit on the R2
Design / 3 of 3

Elite Fit Road

Our Elite Fit is based on extensive observations and analysis of riders' positions. It offers a wide range of positions for all athletes, from endurance riders to Pro-Tour racers, without compromising handling, comfort, or performance.

No Wasted Effort

A combination of material, shape, and lay up are used to engineer the desired stiffness of different parts of the frame. For the R2 we optimized the stiffness of the head tube, for stable and predictable handling, and the stiffness of the bottom bracket, so that more of your power goes into turning the rear wheel.

  • 12% stiffer at the head tube compared with the previous generation R2
  • 10% increase in fork lateral stiffness compared with the previous generation R2
  • 5% stiffer at the bottom bracket compared with the previous generation R2

Al Porapukkham, R2 owner

"Pure simplicity - light, stiff, aero and fast!"
"a sharp, racy, do-it-all bike"

BICYCLING MAGAZINE

"a sharp, racy, do-it-all bike"

"With a slightly aggressive riding position, the R2 quickly responded to my input. It was agile when I climbed and sprinted, felt comfortable on rolling terrain as I chatted with friends, and was stable descending at speed. The bike's carbon frame, reliable parts, and $10k looks make it a great choice for anyone who wants a sharp, racy, do-it-all bike at a great price."
