Cervélo fans will be pleased to hear that the R5 road race bike, just overhauled last summer will now be available for a limited time in their pro team wrap paint job. In response to consumer demand you can now pick up a rim brake or disc brake R5 frameset from your local dealer. Oh and you can win one via Strava…

The all-around race road bike which we just spotted on the top of the Team Dimension Data’s cars at the Giro debut in Israel, will be available with a dot-wrap paint job ONLY during the Giro d’Italia from May 4-27, 2018.

Inspired by their race wins in the Classics, this newest R5 claims to provide ample space for 28mm+ tires, while still delivering pro race winning handling & geometry, and the best blend of light, stiff & comfortable they’ve ever made in a road bike. Before the new R5 was officially unveiled at the Giro last spring, it was already spotted racing the spring classics in this previously pro-only dot pattern wrap camouflage.

But fans wanted that paint job, so Cervelo decided to bring it back for a limited run in framesets only during this year’s Giro. Get one now from, only through your local dealer for around $4000.

In addition to offering the unique wrap paint job, Cervelo also are giving a frameset away this May with their Cervélo Crown Challenge on Strava. Starting May 12, you can sign up for the Strava Challenge where you will have 9 days to climb 3300m. Or do it in one ride like the pros hitting the mountains in the Giro.
