Team Sunweb have switched from Giant to Cervélo framesets for the 2019 season. The team have used both rim and disc brake versions of the brand's R5 and S5 framesets so far and will debut the Cervélo R3 Disc for the final races of the cobbled Classics.

Team Sunweb say the Cervélo R3 Disc features a different carbon fibre layup for improved shock absorption for the cobbles in the upcoming races. A slightly taller head tube compared to Cervélo's more aggressive models should also help to reduce fatigue.

Alongside the enhanced comfort and reduced fatigue, the R3 Disc also has the capacity for 30mm wide tyres.

A full Shimano Dura-Ace R9100 series electronic disc groupset is used on the bike excluding the rear derailleur, which is a Shimano Ultegra Di2 component.

Cees Bol won Nokere Koerse last month on a Cervélo S5 but looks set to race the final few cobbled races aboard the R3 Disc.
