The Soloist is perhaps Cervélo's most famous bike. In the early 2000s, it was the weapon of choice for top World Tour contenders on CSC and the Cervélo Test Team. And now it’s time for a new generation to get acquainted. Far from being pros-only, the new Soloist has been designed for the week-in, week-out amateur racer. It balances light weight and aerodynamic performance to deliver a bike that really is 'just right'. Soloist comes in a hair lighter than S5, but significantly more aerodynamic than R5. That's the kind of tradeoff we can get behind.

S5 might be out there collecting Tour de France Points jerseys, and R5 going first across the line in the Alps, but most of us don’t have a service course, team mechanics, and support car at our beck and call. Without these luxuries, most modern road racers need a bike that’s light AND aero. That’s easy to work on and easy to travel with. That can accommodate mechanical and electronic shifting, stand up to a power-washing at the local car wash, and be passed around between team members throughout the course of the season.


  • BBRIGHT-47: The BBRighT-47 bottom bracket, which first appeared on the R5-CX, is ideal for those who log big miles but don't have a pro wrench checking the bike over every day. It makes BB swaps a breeze (convenient if you're burning through hand-me-down components) and extends the life of the frame.

  • Hidden from the wind, no bleed necessary: The cable routing is inside the frame for aerodynamics, but doesn't go through the stem. We developed our own system that threads the cables under the stem, but through the bearing cap. Whether your position changes or you loan the bike to a friend who uses a different stem length, you won't need to bleed the brakes to swap the stem.

  • Clearance to buzz the tower: The Soloist fits tires up to 34mm (measured), and wheels wide enough to support them.

  • Looks like a race bike: We took the handling geometry for the Soloist directly from R5.The R5 is beloved by pros and amateurs alike for its poise, stability, and precision when that killer climb turns into an even more killer descent. Soloist benefits from a couple decades of refinement, and comes out of the gate feeling just right.

    *In the bicycle industry, suppliers and factories sometimes change specs without notice and state that they are "subject to change without notice". This is because bicycles are made from hundreds of parts which come from dozens of vendors. Parts are sometimes updated to the most current production generation/iteration one gets better or more current parts or a comparable part. Product specifications are subject to change without notice.
