I don't really understand this post. Do you mean design is only of superficial significance?

It will be interesting to see the white paper, if any, on this iteration. The disc version would have more dramatic changes due to the need to accommodate the braking torque at the hub, and due to the lack of need for brake mounts at the rim.

It looks more aero as R5 model.
Canyon ultimate also more aero as old model.

I guess that this new r series frame set of weight.

Maybe weigh 750grams or so the new R5?

Climbers are going to find it hard to justify the frameset cost now that the Ultimate EVO is out at £2949 at 660g.

Let's not dig a grave until we've seen more than a couple of "spy shots"! At this point in time, who knows how much it will weigh or how much it will cost?

The spy shots look great, will seriously consider it as a replacement for my S5. Hoping the geo is close to the S5.

The rumblings I've heard is that there won't be a new RCA version of this one. So if the new R5 weighed as much as a current standard R5 it would leave Cervelo without a true ultralight frame, and I don't think that would be acceptable for them. So my educated guess would be sub-700g for the frame, and probably remaining at £3.5k for the frameset.

Integrated seat clamp.. and Fork looks a lot like tarmac's.
Different paint job will make the New R5 better.
