This ultra-lightweight race machine sets new benchmarks for performance, usability and confidence-boosting control
The R5 makes no compromises as an ultralight race machine first and foremost. Team Dimension Data’s World Tour riders also praise its new pro fit, stable and responsive handling, and unrivalled stiffness. No wonder Bernie Eisel calls it “the perfect bike for stage racing,” with Omar Fraile demonstrating as much by powering it to glory in the 100th Giro d’Italia.
The stiffest rim brake-equipped road frame we have ever produced joins forces with performance-enhancing comfort, confidence-inspiring handling, and world-class lightweight design and aerodynamics made possible by innovative new Squoval Max tube shapes.
After years of research and testing on the road, in the lab and in the wind tunnel, we’ve redefined the classic road bike by revolutionizing three interconnected factors — comfort, fit, and handling/stability — while continuing to push the aero envelope with new Squoval Max tube shapes.
