CERVELO SOLOIST

The Soloist is an all out race machine featuring many characteristics pulled from the S5 and R5, but with an excellent dose of comfort and practicality. Aero profile, light weight design, wide tyre clearances and a friendlier approach to servicing delivers next to top end race speeds without the headache caused by even minor changes.

Soloist sits right between S5 and R5 on the performance scale, while having a price tag that’s less World Tour, more Road Trip. It’s about 250g heavier than R5, and 250g lighter than S5. It’s 190g slower than S5, but 126g faster than R5. You get the idea. It’s the ‘just-right’ answer for the rider trying to find a smart, intentional compromise.

The handling geometry for the Soloist comes directly from R5. The R5 is beloved by pros and amateurs alike for its poise, stability, and precision when that killer climb turns into an even more killer descent. The Soloist benefits from our decades of race bike geometry development, and comes out of the gate ready to go.

The cable routing is inside the frame for aerodynamics, but doesn't go through the stem. Cervelo has developed a system that threads the cables under the stem, but through the bearing cap. Whether your position changes or you loan the bike to a friend who uses a different stem length, you won't need to bleed the brakes to swap the stem.

The Soloist fits tires up to 34mm (measured), and wheels wide enough to support them.
The BBRighT-47 bottom bracket, which first appeared on the R5-CX, is ideal for those who log big miles but don't have a pro wrench checking the bike over every day. It makes BB swaps a breeze (convenient if you're burning through hand-me-down components) and extends the life of the frame.

The Soloist is an eye-catching, sleek bike built for speed, but with practicality in mind.
