Established in 1995 by Phil White and Gerard Vroomen, Cervelo is a relative new comer in the bicycle world. In that short period of time their engineering focused, functionally driven designs have revolutionized the industry. Freed from the bounds of tradition Gerard and Phil pioneered the use of CAD, computational fluid dynamics, and wind tunnel testing to help build some of the lightest, stiffest, most aerodynamic bicycles the world has seen years before other bicycle companies.
Cervelo makes two road frames:
S series bikes are built for pure speed. They have set the benchmark for aerodynamic road frames both in incredibly low drag numbers but also impressively low weight.h
R series bikes are engineered to optimize strength, stiffness and comfort in the lightest frame possible. The result? A near perfect blend of race performance and all day rideability ideally suited to the steep power climbs and rough roads of Western Pennsylvania.
