Cervélo R5 Force eTap AXS – Carbon-Road Bikes 

Cervélo's R5 is the perfect road bike that you don't have to compromise with. The high quality SRAM Force eTap AXS drivetrain, combined with the high quality carbon frame and Reserve 50 carbon wheels, results in a blend of speed, handling and comfort that is hard to beat.

Features - Cervélo R5 Force eTap AXS


A combination of material, shape, and lay up are used to engineer the desired stiffness of different parts of the frame. For the R5 Disc 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. Aerodynamics are critical to engineering a fast bike: aero drag accounts for as much as 90% of the overall resistance affecting a rider. Using special frame tube shapes, we improved the aerodynamics of the R5 Disc so you can reap the benefits of reduced drag.

Reserve 50 carbon wheels

High-quality Reserve carbon wheels have been available from Santa Cruz for a few years, until now exclusively for MTBs. The wheels with the excellent reputation are now also finding their way on the road bike: Together with their corporate sibling Cervélo, the Californians have developed a wheelset that combines the well-known robustness with a good portion of aerodynamics. When the racing gets real, the Reserve 50 comes into its own. The 50mm-deep aerodynamic profile is the perfect mix of speed and stability for all kinds of pavement-based racing—crits, triathlon, and road. The profile was designed in collaboration with the aero wizards at Cervelo to ensure we delivered the optimal blend of gram savings—on the scales and in the wind tunnel. Like all Reserve wheels, you can set up the 50 tubeless or with tubes, and the traditional bead hook plays nicely with either.


A high performance bike you can trust. Stiffness and geometry work together for pedaling efficiency and stable handling. Wider tires and frame compliance create a smoother ride to help reduce your fatigue. Disc brakes ensure controlled braking in all conditions.


Cervélo values user-friendly and intuitive adjustments. The thoughtful details of the R5 will delight you: RAT thru axles for fast wheel changes, plenty of tire clearance (for tires up to 30mm measured width), and an integrated computer mount for uncluttered handlebars.

We made the R5 stiffer at key points in the bike while maintaining its featherweight status. In fact, the disc model of the R5 is our stiffest ever road bike frame. The R5's careful balancing of stiffness and weight results in a bike that accelerates quickly but is stable and predictable at speed.

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 left hand chain stay. The benefit is increased stiffness and pedaling efficiency in a lighter weight frame. BBright™ is compatible with all major crank standards.
