Cervélo has entered the eBike world; its all-new Rouvida looks to shake things up on and off the road. The design incorporates a new removable dropout piece that can quickly change from road bike to gravel geo. Cervélo notes this interchangeable design is much more than a ‘flip-chip’. The different dropouts rotate the entire frame to achieve a different fit and changes in handling.

Cervélo Rouvida – What is it?

The Cervélo Rouvida is an all-new eBike from the famed Jumbo Visma (soon to be Team Visma | Lease a Bike) bike supplier. The Rouvida is available in a road-focused and a dedicated gravel version. It employs the Fazua Ride 60 motor, tuned explicitly to Cervélo’s specifications.

Cervélo Rouvida Road vs. Gravel Geo

  • 0.7° slacker head tube angle for gravel off-road handling
  • The trail is 57.9mm for Road and 62mm for Gravel
  • Tire clearance – 43.5mm for Gravel and 34mm for Road
  • The stack is 7mm taller, and the reach is 5mm shorter with the gravel setup

*Note the Cervélo Rouvida frame is the same (though the road/gravel have some aesthetic differences), and the geometry change comes from the interchangeable dropouts. Gravel and road dropouts will be available aftermarket from Cervélo for $80.

What’s under the hood?

Fazua Motors’ latest offering, the Ride 60, has already received accolades for its ability to blend seamlessly with riders’ pedaling input to deliver a ride that feels like an analog bike, just with a lot more oomph.

The design team at Cervélo gave the Ride 60 some tweaks to give it a little more Cervélo flavor. The result is an ebike that keeps the Cervélo aesthetic and aerodynamics. The Cervélo design team claims the model’s vertical battery orientation is wind tunnel-proven to improve aerodynamics.

Cervélo uses Road Control, a unique Fazua proprietary setup, to give the rider easy access to control power and assistance.

If you’re running low on power for your light and want to take advantage of Rouvida’s extra battery life, the indicator panel on the top tube includes a USB charging port for lights or accessories.

  • For the USA, the Class 3 Fazua Ride 60 has a 28mph max assisted speed with a 450w max power and 430wh max battery capacity.
  • For the UK/EU, the Class 1 Fazua Ride 60 has a 25km/h max assisted speed with a 450w max power and 430wh max battery capacity.

Cervélo Rouvida Specs

The Cervélo Rouvida will be available in four different build options. Two are road-focused, and two are gravel-focused.

Rouvida Road

The flagship Cervélo Rouvida road model arrives with a SRAM Red AXS XPLR groupset, Reserve 44 wheels, and Vittoria NEXT tires. The crankset is an FSA CK-703 carbon e-bike-specific setup with a 10-44T SRAM cassette.

The second-tier Rouvida model comes equipped with SRAM Rival AXS XPLR groupset, Fulcrum Racing 600 wheels, and Vittoria NEXT ties. The crankset is the same FSA CK-703 but trades carbon for the alloy model.

Cervélo Rouvida Gravel

The Cervélo Rouvida gravel models come with more gravel-focused gear. The flagship Rouvida gravel model comes with a SRAM Force AXS XPLR setup, 10-44T cassette, Reserve 44 wheels, and WTF Vulpine 700x40mm tires. The cockpit gets a slight tweak from a traditional road bar to the Cervelo gravel bar with a 16 deg flare. The top Cervélo Rouvida gravel model also comes with a SRAM AXS Reverb dropper post to get dialed on the trails.

The secondary Cervélo Rouvida model comes with a Shimano GRX 12-speed setup with a 10-45 cassette to climb anything. The wheels are Fulcrum Rapid Red 900 gravel wheels with WTB Vulpine tires. The cockpit is a Zipp Service Course bar with 5 deg flare and 11 deg outsweep. No dropper for this model… sorry.

I would love to see a head to head comparison with the Cervelo Gravel version and the new Specialized Turbo Creo 2.

“7° slacker head tube angle for gravel off-road handling”

  • This should be 0.7° per the actual specs.

to go from road to gravel geometry, requires different brake caliper mounts along with the different dropouts. you can see this in the animation on Cervelo’s website. I’m guessing that’ll take a little longer than a “flash”

Actually they want you to take it to the dealer for the conversion…so certainly not a flash.

What’s the Q factor? I was kinda surprised to learn how wide the Q factor is on most e-bikes, but I guess you have to put the motor somewhere.
