2021 Cervélo Bikes Buyer's Guide

Check out our Cervélo buyer's guide and find the perfect road, gravel, triathlon or TT bike for smashing your cycling goals. 

All The Cervélo Info You Need In One Place

In this buyer's guide, we've boiled down the most important features of the Cervélo lineup so you can make the best decision for your cycling goals. We'll take a quick look at the most important tech that sets Cervélo apart and then dive right into breaking down each model. Let's get started.

A quick word on Cervélo tech 

Cervelo BBright extra stiff bottom bracket for maximum power transfer

Unparalleled stiffness for unparalleled performance 

Cervélo frames are some of the stiffest on the market. They reinforce the areas where it's needed most so every watt translates to as much forward momentum as possible. The result is a faster, more responsive, and better handling ride that fills you with confidence at every point in the road.

Cervelo cutout downtube for maximum aerodynamics

Innovative aero tubing for maximum speed

Cervélo's unique tube shapes are optimized for each model and provide insane levels of drag reduction and overall speed. Whether you're out on a group ride, racing a gravel epic, or competing in a full ironman triathlon, you can be sure that your bike will be working as hard as you are.

Cervélo Áspero

Cervelo Aspero AXS carbon gravel bike

Áspero Highlights

Discipline: Gravel

Who it's for: The Áspero is for riders who want to race in gravel events, lead the pack in off-tarmac group rides, and hammer out epic solo FKT missions on the path less traveled.

Why you'll love it: At about 1100g frame weight, it's one of the lightest gravel bikes on the market. There's no compromise between speed, versatility, and off-road handling. You'll be faster, nimbler, and more stable on the Áspero than you've ever been on gravel bike.

Áspero Details + Models

Run 700c or 650b
Áspero let's you run the hoops you want so you can take on your next challenge with a winning set of wheels, no matter the terrain. The frame will take a 700x44mm or a 650x50mm tire so you can enjoy ultimate versatility.

Optimum handling thanks to Trail Mixer Fork
Just because a road bike will take a gravel tire doesn't mean the bike will handle with the same level of performance. To solve this, Cervélo created Trail Mixer, a two-position chip in the fork that adjusts the amount of effective trail and keeps the bike dialed and responsive whether you're running 700c or 650b wheels. 

Aspero Apex 1 - $2,800

Aspero GRX - $3,000

Aspero RX810 - $4,500

Aspero Force eTap AXS - $6,000
