From the start, the goal for the Strada was the best aerodynamics AND comfort. Because without comfort, you won’t be able to maintain your aero position. While push the limits of aerodynamics and comfort in every detail, the New Strada has two clearly distinct zones: Speed zone: the front half of the bike, with its ultra-deep yet narrow headtube, wrap-around downtube and bladed fork.
In addition, wider tires reduce fatigue caused by high-frequency road buzz. But aerodynamics are also important on such rides, and the Strada remains the first aero bike engineered around wider tires (just like the Discus wheel range is engineered specifically around wider tires). Finally you can be fast and comfortable all day, every day, with one and the same bike.
As co-founder of Cervélo and Head of Design, Gerard Vroomen loves aerodynamics. Not just the theory, but real world aerodynamics. So we test at 20mph (32kmh) and 30mph (48kmh), we test with bottles and other “difficult parts”, we sometimes even test dirty and muddy bikes. But while the aero details of the Strada range stand out, he is proudest that it has started a worldwide trend towards more tire clearance on aero bikes. Comfort & speed.
