Cervelo C3 Disc – First Impressions

Words by trax on 21/02/2018 15:50:59

Our new hire Brad who is a keen triathlete, Half Ironman and roadie snapped up the opportunity to test ride our new range of 2018 Cervelo Test Bikes. Over to him and his new “winter commuter”….

Cervelo have a Tour winning pedigree making some of the fastest and lightest bikes on the market. Being given the opportunity to test out their version of an endurance bike made me feel both excited and a tad worried. Would I be hopping on board a flexy, boring all day tarmac tool?

Boy were these fears put to bed with aplomb in the first few miles! Wow what a machine. Not only do you have comfort but you have a bike that loves to go fast and tear down the road when you want it to. It has shocked me how quick it is. It is a fast endurance bike that has the potential to head beyond the road and tarmac. I want to put a few more miles on it as I love riding the bike. Come and find out for yourself and hop on our demo Cervelo’s; C3 Disc, S3 Disc and R3 Disc.

Quick summary on the components;

Drive Train: Ultegra Di2 8050 – smooth electronic shifting and very comfortable hoods

Disc Brakes:  very impressive stopping highlighted in the wet conditions. Good lever feel and modulation.

Tyres: 28c Continental Grand Sport Race. Helps absorb the bumps and aid in grip and confidence when cornering. But still fast even set at 85psi.
