The new Cervelo Soloist is a do-it-all, aero-inspired bike designed for amateur racers and fast road riders.
The Soloist. It’s a name from deep in Cervelo history, but immediately familiar to anyone with bike racing memories extending back to the early-2000s. It was the weapon of choice for top World Tour contenders on CSC and the Cervelo Test Team, and they’re bringing it back for a new generation. The new Soloist is designed for the week-in, week-out rider and racer who can only justify one high-performance bike. It balances lightweight and aerodynamic advantages to deliver a bike that really is ‘just right’.
It’s a race bike that can accommodate mechanical and electronic shifting, can hammer out the training miles in all weather, and yet still has the chops to leap off the front at that decisive moment. That’s the Soloist.
Soloist sits right between S5 and R5 on the performance scale, while having a price tag that’s less World Tour and more affordable for the type of rider who isn’t racing Tadej Pogacar up the Stelvio!
It’s about 250g heavier than R5, and 250g lighter than S5. It’s 190g slower than S5, but 126g faster than R5. You get the idea. The Cervelo Soloist is the ultimate ‘all-rounder’ and more than capable, whatever the terrain.
Cervelo 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 Cervelo’s decades of race bike geometry development, and comes out of the gate ready to go – whether that’s the local social ride, racing the crit scene or even jumping on a club 10.
