When you buy a Cervélo frameset, you can be sure you're investing in unequalled speed and control, as well as some of the lightest frames on the market. Cervélo spares no expense when it comes to research and materials to create a product that outperforms the competition in aerodynamics. Special tube designs minimize drag to epic-ly low levels and stiffen key power transferring points while bringing the overall weight of the frame down. The result of all this work is a frame that's built for fast, lively, confident riding that allows you to focus more on pushing your limits. With Cervélo's legendary performance reputation and lifetime limited warranty, upgrading to a Cervélo frameset could be the best cycling decision you make in a long time.
The 2019 - 2020 Cervélo Framesets
The R-Series is the perfect all-around road bike. The R-Series road frames are the stiffest Cervélo makes and they're great for climbs and stage races. Increased stiffness in key area like the bottom bracket and head tube mean you'll accelerate quicker and enjoy stable, confident cornering. Whatever you cycling goals are, R-Series frames will bring out your best.
Built for long, grueling days in the saddle, the C-Series is Cervélo's endurance line. The C-Series provides comfort enough for century rides and rougher rounds while still maintaining its responsive performance characteristics. The C-Series is light where weight can be saved, stiff where needed for power transfer and stability, and compliant in all the right places so you can ride longer, harder, and further than ever. Clearance for 32mm tires and a frame designed for vibration dampening will reduce fatigue and keep the smile on your face.
Cervélo built the S-Series for the fastest sprinters in cycling. These frames are all about aero, and features like internal cable routing, custom bar and stem, and unique frame shapes combine to significantly reduce drag and help you reach your top speed. Cervélo managed to increase stiffness at the bottom bracket while still making the overall frame lighter so accelerating is more explosive and top speeds can be reached earlier and maintained.
The P-Series combines an ideal stiffness to weight ratio and has been regarded as one of the fastest time trial/triathlon bikes ever made. Increased stiffness and aerodynamics allow you to push yourself to new limits so you can achieve your race day goals. With reduced drag thanks to specially designed tube shapes, you'll have less holding you back and more powering you forward.
Cervélo says the P5X is without a doubt the fastest and most user-friendly triathlon bike on the market. Not only does this frame feature Cervélo's most advanced aerodynamic design, it is practical enough to change to suit your storage preferences so you can really dial it in. With 10 times more vertical compliance than the P5, the P5X allows you to stay comfortable so you can maintain your position and fatigue slower. It is also 31 grams (4 watts) faster than the P5 when set up for an ironman. Integrated and modular storage keeps drag low even with all the hydration and nutrition you need to fuel your race.
Cervélo took design elements from their time trial bikes to create the optimum aerodynamic frame shapes and rider position for a track bike with blistering speed and incredible stiffness. The bottom bracket is reinforced to make sure that you get out every bit of power you put into it.

Frequently Asked Questions
How is frame stiffness measured, and why does it matter?
Stiffness leads to efficient power transfer, responsive handling, and a predictable and stable feel when cornering at speed. Though extensive real-world testing, Cervélo has concluded that there are 3 kinds of stiffness that matter most to a rider: torsional stiffness, bottom bracket stiffness, and vertical stiffness. Through these tests, Cervélo is able to stiffen certain areas of the frame that encounter the most force and lighten areas where stiffness and strength won't be affected. Cervélo also puts their frames through much more rigorous strength testing that industry standards so you can enjoy top quality performance and the peace of mind you need to focus on your riding.
What kind of carbon does Cervélo use, and is it better?
While all bike manufacturers have access to the same carbon fiber, what's more important is how and where it's used. Terms like "super high-modulus" (the engineering term for a material's stiffness) can be deceptive because there isn't a universal modulus scale. Cervélo's analogy goes like this: a rubber band can be thought of as low-modulus and uncooked spaghetti is high-modulus. Uncooked spaghetti is very stiff, but breaks under less pressure than a rubber band, which is much stronger. Cervélo takes a methodical, scientific approach to its design, and uses results from the lab and real life testing to determine where and how to use its carbon fiber. When you buy a Cervélo, know that your frame is constructed to provide optimum stiffness, strength, and compliance where they matter most so every aspect of your ride is improved.
What kind of warranty does Cervélo offer?
All Cervélo frames come with a lifetime limited warranty for the original owner.
