Cervelo are renowned for their design and innovation, releasing some of the most impressive bikes seen in the 21st century and the new Cervelo Aspero 2020 model does not disappoint for the ever growing gravel category. The Cervelo Aspero has been radically engineered to be the faster, better handling gravel race bike.
Cervelo have produced the Aspero gravel bike for a new bread of rider emerging with the same sense of freedom and exploration gravel riding is founded on but with a burining desire to ride wild, full bore, and explore not just geography but personal limits.
This new frontier requires new ideas and a new kind of gravel machine, one engineered not to wander the trails but to slay them. For these athletes, Cervelo created the Aspero, a machine engineered for pure, unapologetic speed, ready to take down finish lines, KOM leaderboards, PR’s, and FKT’s. A single bike that first generates maximum speed and then second controls that speed across the variable conditions gravel athletes must conquer. A machine built without limits, for the riders willing to test them.
