Although Cervelo Test Team had an incredibly successful 1st season, they are always looking to improve the equipment that they use.S3 – Lightweight Aero Road frame, with a fabled comfort which has it’s DNA in the R series bike. I’m loving the all black look, very stealth. Zipp 404 Wheels – What can be said that hasn’t been said before, well very little. They are great wheels and are often rebadged by other Teams when their sponsored wheels don’t cut the mustard. Other change, PowerTap have come on board this year provided power measurement so a new rear hub for the Team this year. SRAM – Red. Is it a performance advantage over Shimano, well in the weight front yes. The ergonomics of the shifters and how they work, well that’s totally up to you, but I’m a big fan. Rotor Cranks – after the first version of the cranks proved to be too flexy and seeing more than half the Team abandon them for the Spring Classics Rotor set about to make a crank light enough for Carlos and stiff enough for Thor. Reading reviews and listening to the Pros it seems like mission accomplished.
