Cervélo’s Future-Proof Cable Management system, for instance, achieves compatibility across mechanical, electronic, and hydraulic brake and derailleur systems. Currently, Future-Proof frames include interchangeable cable stops that snap into the frame and are easily swapped out by hand to accommodate upgrades. The benefit: One frame, any system. You can buy with confidence, knowing your bike is easily upgradable and can be enjoyed with the latest technology for years to come.
Then there’s Cervélo’s Reduced-Friction BB Guide, which maintains a consistent curve for each cable path that avoids side bends or kinks. The result is significantly reduced friction, leading to easier setup, smoother shifting, and longer service intervals.
Shielding our seat stays, meanwhile, allows standard brake callipers to be hidden from the wind — reducing aero drag — but retaining elite braking performance, simple adjustment, and access to replacement parts of non-proprietary systems. The same goes for our adoption of the flat-mount standard for disc brakes: It is compatible with virtually all commonly used calipers and rotor sizes via adapters.
