Wheel partner Zipp supplies the team with a wide range of wheels to suit various applications and conditions





Most of the Cervelo Test Team is using the company's aero S3 model but team leader Carlos Sastre has decided on the latest R5 instead.





Cervelo engineer Richard Matthews developed a new 1 3/8" lower headset standard in cooperation with Cane Creek.






he extra-wide BBright bottom bracket's PressFit-30 cups are just barely visible inboard of the crankarms





Cervelo takes advantage of the BBright standard's dimensions by widening the down tube, too

It's a limited TdF Red Groupo - yellow in colour for the previous tour winners. Sastre / Lance / Pistol have it on their bike.
