Description

The RCA is the culmination of the research and development in our Project California facility. A refinement of the previous version, the frame set represents the leading edge of composite material manufacturing and our understanding of what makes a truly inspirational ride.

The previous RCA is recognized for industry-leading innovation, earning Eurobike Gold, JEC Innovation, Core77 Design, and Bike Radar’s “Most Wanted” awards. Germany’s prestigious Tour Magazin also rated the Rca the lightest frame they’d ever tested, with the highest stiffness-to-weight ratio. The latest iteration of the RCA was an opportunity to improve upon, what many riders would call, perfection. An opportunity to apply what we’ve learned in Project California and put new ideas and techniques into practice.

Improvements include stronger top and down tubes to be more crush-resistant, tapered-ply materials used in tube walls for added strength, selective use of ultrahigh modulus pitch fibre in the seat tube, and selected tapered-ply wraps to stiffen the head tube.

The major breakthrough is in fork development and enhanced ride quality: our structural engineers have effectively decoupled lateral and longitudinal fork stiffness, delivering a 15% increase in lateral stiffness and a 7% decrease in longitudinal stiffness.

And thanks to new materials and layup techniques, the new Rca frameset weighs 35 grams less than the classic edition, while maintaining its elegant frame and Squoval tube shapes.

Features:

  • New Fork: 15% stiffer laterally and 7% more compliant in fore/aft stiffness versus classic RCA
  • Weight: The lightest frameset in the world is now 35 grams lighter, at 947 grams (size 56 frame, fork, all hardware and paint)
  • Made in USA: Entirely hand-made at Cervélo’s Project California design facility, using new layups, materials and fabrication techniques
