On the podium at Paris-Roubaix six times in seven starts—with three victories
The R3 features BBright™ and the same exclusive second generation Squoval™ tube shapes as our R5, to combine all the benefits of a stiff and light bicycle with the strength and comfort needed to win on the cobbles of the roughest roads in Europe. Built on the lessons learned at Project California, its renowned comfort comes from using ultra-thin seat stays along with an optimized 1 3/8”steerer tube. Stiff, light and comfortable, this bike provides the responsiveness and the confidence needed when descending, cornering, racing for the win, or just sheer pleasure during your Sunday ride.
Optimized Tapered Head Tube
Larger lower head tube dimensions offer an improvement in stiffness and handling. However, it is not as simple as 'bigger is always better'.
BBright optimizes system stiffness and weight while allowing for the largest range of crank compatibility in a modern press fit system.
Ultra Thin Seat Stays
Shapes and materials can add stiffness where it counts. They can also be designed to take stiffness away from where you don't want it.
Setting new standards meant re-imagining traditional shapes. By redesigning tube shapes, we make huge advances in frame performance.
