A BIKE FOR THE WAY RIDERS RIDE Caledonia doesn't fit in a box nicely, and we like it that way. It was conceived on our Thursday night rides-routes that often play fast and loose with 'road ride.' As we tried to stuff bigger tires into our R5s and streamline our Asperos, a new kind of bike was born. When we design a bike, we start with our library of tube shapes. These shapes are tubes we've used on other models that we know to have various qualities-aerodynamic, stiff, ultralight, etc.-and they help get us to the refinement stage on a bike more quickly. In the case of Caledonia, we wanted durability, lightweight, and aerodynamics to be in balance and selected a package that achieved the performance demands of this kind of race bike. Caledonia uses a standard round bar, stem, and seat post, giving riders the option to build their ultimate ride without compromise. Integrated accessory mounts and hidden fender mounts keep the bike's refined lines so you can ride with lights and computers in a downpour and still look fast. Because we all know if it looks fast, it probably is. Rather than designing multiple versions of the bike with various fit profiles (R5, R-Series, etc.) like we've done in the past, we designed a system that enables a broad range of fits on a single bike while maintaining the aesthetic and functional cleanliness we demand. Modern road riders are looking for bikes to handle long-distance, high pace, no limits, and offer maximum fun. By placing lower modulus carbon in key areas to mitigate the brittleness of hi-mod fiber-the Caledonia delivers performance, comfort, and speed. Oh, and you can fit a 34mm tire in there. Or 31mm with fenders.
The R3 is a high performance allrounder, ready for everything from the Tuesday night world champs to an epic weekend ride. Light, stiff, and designed for confidence-boosting handling, this is a bike that you can trust. Using special carbon layup and construction techniques, Cervelo reduced the frame's weight while making it stiffer at key points. The result of this impressive stiffness-to-weight ratio is a lively and confidence-inspiring bike. Stiff and lightweight, with geometry that promotes stable and predictable handling, the R3 urges you to attack on the climb and push the pace on the descent. The R3 features a robust chain stay protector, future-proof cable management system (compatible across all types of shifting systems), and a reduced friction bottom bracket guide. Clearance for tires up to 28mm wide and frame compliance create a smoother ride. Features - Squoval Max tubes combine the attributes of a square with an oval, but with a more aerodynamic leading edge - BBright bottom bracket allows the use of larger-sized tubes in the seat tube, down tube, and lefthand chain stay - Elite Fit offers a wide range of positions for all athletes without compromising handling, comfort, or performance - Shimano Ultegra Di2 drivetrain - Novatec R3 Carbon 35mm Disc wheels
