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