Soloist

The everyday breakaway bike

Why the Cervélo Soloist?

The Soloist name has been around for years, but the latest version is a bit different than what the World Tour Pros of the early 2000s were riding. The current iteration is all about balance for those only looking to have a do-it-all performance machine. Lighter than the S5, more aero than the R5, the Soloist sits right in the middle of those two heavy hitters. It also accommodates both electronic and cable drivetrains, opening up the doors for whatever build your heart desires.

Technical Details

Soloist sits right between S5 and R5 on the performance scale, while having a price tag that’s less World Tour, more Road Trip. 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. It’s the ‘just-right’ answer for the rider trying to find a smart, intentional compromise.

Frame Sizing

The sizing chart is a great place to start when picking your next bike but everyone will fit a bike a bit differently. Your torso, arm, and leg lengths all play into what size of bike you may need. Plus, there's your own personal preference.

We always recommend swinging by the shop and taking the bike that you're looking for a spin to see how it feels. If you're unable to come by, looking at the geometry of your current bike and comparing it is a good place to start. If you have any further questions, our customer service team is there to help.
