2014 Cervelo S3 Ultegra 6800 56 cm Carbon Aero Road Bike



The S3 is certainly one of Cervélo’s longest-status bikes, introduced in 2008, and probably the most Canadian company’s so much a success racing designs, including a global championship – Thor Hushovd riding his to victory in 2010. 

It has, although, evolved considerably all the way through its long history. And in step with Cervélo S3 is now ‘even better than before’. Smartly, to paraphrase a Sixties paramour, ‘they might say that, wouldn’t they’.

On the skin, it doesn’t look radically different, however it has in truth been just about redesigned from the bottom up. Revisions have been made to the carbon layup, and it includes a new fork and head tube, and a brand new backend derived from Cervélo’s exclusive RCA bike. (NB – since we tested the S3, a brand new 2016 edition has been released, with a relatively different paint job but just about an identical spec.)

Comfort-wise the S3 is excellent: the back end works really well at reducing road buzz to a murmur, helped by Fizik’s classy Antares saddle. But if the street is rough and broken, the bike’s slender 23mm Mavictires – slim even for 23mm rubber, and measuring closer to 21mm at the narrow Cosmic wheels – do allow a good amount of buzz to succeed in your hands during the alloy 3T bar.

Less than 200 miles at the bike. Retails for $4000, I am asking $2000 for bidding, 2600 for Buy it Now.
