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.
The P5 brings to the world the most advanced and the most aerodynamic triathlon/TT bike possible. Designed using Formula 1-level Computational Fluid Dynamics software (CFD) and proven in the wind tunnel, the P5 is six to 11 watts faster than other so-called “superbikes”.
Fast and fit, this frameset is the most aerodynamic, best-fitting, and best match of stiffness and comfort. it features a BBright™ bottom bracket for ultimate power transfer and ComfortPly™ technology which removes unnecessary material to reduce vibration and improve ride quality. Proven as the fastest, its superiority is also demonstrated in its simplicity. The low-maintenance exclusive hydraulic brake system from Magura is aerodynamically superior and lighter than mechanical brakes, and yet stops on a dime. Designed for speed and versatility, this bike features a variety of custom and intuitive storage solutions combining optimal aero locations with ease of access. Skin surfaces are tuned for each AeroZone™ to optimize airflow conditions, resulting in crucial time savings of ~30 seconds in a 40-kilometre race.
Adopted overnight by all our top athletes, it already boasts seven Ironman wins within six months, with outrageous records in the bike split. David Zabriskie won his seventh U.S. Time Trial Championship on a P5, and Caroline ”Xena” Steffen won the 2012 Ironman European Championship. The ultimate proof? Ryder Hesjedal’s win at the 2012 Giro d’Italia, with a decisive TT stage resulting in a 17 second overall victory.
With three Paris-Roubaix victories and multiple Editors’ Choice Awards, the R3 continues to outperform expectations. With what Bicycling terms a “satisfying combination of efficient pedaling, reliable components, and lively handling,” the R3 surprises with a lightweight frame that responds to every pedal stroke. Bottom line: the renowned ride quality of the R3 now delivers additional aero and stiffness benefits — with no compromises.
