Cervelo R5 Force23 AXS

The new R5 frame is 130g lighter than the previous model – a 16% reduction from an already-light frame. And while aerodynamics weren’t a focus with this frame the way they would be on an S5 or P5, bringing the cables inside reduced drag by 25g.

The color black may absorb all light, but Cervélo Five Black is anything but heavy. This ultra-minimal graphics and paint package results in a frame that’s significantly lighter – they’ll never even see you coming. The R5 is stiff, but not too stiff – the Goldilocks of climbing bikes if you will. Poise, stability, and power transfer that feels “just right” and keeps you fresh and ready to take on the road ahead.

Red and Force builds include SRAM powermeters integrated into the crank. The integration of a powermeter results in better stiffness, lighter weight, and improved accuracy over aftermarket solutions.

The new SRAM Force23 AXS groupset sees updates to the shifters, cranksets (one-piece direct mount, without a separate spider and bolt-on chainrings) and front derailleur, alongside new shiny graphics!
