The new R5 introduces the Rca’s frame profile to the R-series line-up. Light and stiff, the R5 now offers a 7.4 Watt aero advantage thanks to the latest Squoval family of tube shapes. With a 9.5% stiffer bottom bracket compared to the last generation R5, this bike is perfect for acceleration, climbing or on the attack, while a 15% increase in torsional head tube stiffness offers improved handling. The R5’s new fork shape improves side stiffness and front compliance while maintaining aero performance. Future-proof cable routing is ready for mechanical, electronic and hydraulic. The R5 is a favourite among the Grand Tour riders of Team Garmin-Sharp.
A library of shapes that combine the attributes of a square and an oval to achieve an ideal balance of stiffness, weight, and aerodynamics.
Different frame designs call for different steerer dimensions. We use the right dimension in the right application.
Future-Proof Cable Management ensures your frame is compatible with all current and future derailleur and brake systems.
BBright increases system stiffness and reduces frame weight while allowing for a large range of crank compatibility in a modern press fit system.
Smooth shifting that is easy to set up is no accident. Designing shifting requires a detailed approach. Small details have a huge impact.
Tough, compression-molded dropouts save weight with no sacrifice in strength versus traditional metal dropouts.
