Click here to find the right Cervelo for you
Cervelo’s name comes from the Italian “cervello” for brain and French “velo” for bike, and represents the incredible ingenuity that goes into every Cervelo frame. Always pushing the envelope of what’s possible, Cervelo’s focus on state-of-the-art materials, top-tech engineering and exceptional aerodynamics has produced some of the lightest, fastest and best-riding bikes around.
Cervelo was founded by Gerard Vroomen and Phil White, two engineers who worked together to design and build a time-trial bike for a top Italian racer. While the cutting-edge machine received excellent reviews no company was interested in producing it. So the duo decided to go into business for themselves.
In 1996 Cervelo debuted with two road and two time-trial frames but really began to shine in 2000 when the International Cycling Union imposed strict rules for frame shapes. Cervelo embraced the challenge by creating the amazing P3 – one of the fastest TT and tri bikes in the world.
In 2002, Cervelo became the official bike supplier of Team CSC and with working with their top pros expanded their road bike offerings and further improved their time-trial models. Today Cervelo offers some of the most advanced designs available. The R family of road bikes employs their Squoval down tube and chainstays for remarkable lightness and stiffness. The bikes also feature their feathery, leaf-spring-like seatstays for an ultra-smooth ride.
Meanwhile Cervelo’s Soloist models’ Smartwall tubes are incredibly aerodynamic,light and ideal for long breakaways and tough climbs. The bikes’ versatile geometry and reversible seatposts allow use for both road race and time trials.
P2 and P3 Carbon time trial bikes utilize continuous-width rear wheel cutouts, wind-slicing head tubes and super-thin seatposts to slip through the air with as little resistance as possible.
Wherever and however you ride, Cervelo has a top-notch bicycle perfectly suited to conquering tough climbs, fierce headwinds and long miles so you can enjoy cycling like never before.
