The R5 will fuel your passion, whether you’re pinning on a number or pushing for segment glory. In short, it’s a high-performance bike you can trust. Stiffness and geometry work together to achieve pedaling efficiency and stable handling. Compliance engineered into the frame and clearance for 30mm tires creates a smoother ride to help reduce your fatigue. Disc brakes ensure controlled braking no matter what the weather’s like at the summit.
We made the R5 stiffer at key points in the frame while maintaining its featherweight status—not only is it significantly stiffer than the previous iteration of the R5, the disc model is our stiffest ever road frame. That careful balance of stiffness and weight results in a bike that responds quickly to input but is stable and predictable at speed.
