Cervelo S3 Disc

The addition of disc brakes on the S3 Disc allowed Cervelo’s engineers to redesign the fork, raising the crotch at the top of the fork and widening the legs to reduce drag by 19 grams. Cervelo added 12mm thru-axles to the fork and the rear of the bike, increasing headtube and bottom bracket stiffness. Redesigned cable routing and an internal battery mount for Shimano Di2 batteries in the bike’s down tube make it easier to access the cables and charge the battery. Seatstays and chainstays have been re-engineered to maximize control and handling. And Cervelo did all this while saving 40 grams over the S3’s frame and fork. It's the perfect fit for the workhorse racer who dreams of winning his next gran fondo or group ride. [From $4,500; cervelo.com
