Tom Dumoulin’s 2019 Team Sunweb Cervelo R5 — gallery

Out with the TCR, in with the R5

This article first appeared on Cyclingnews.


Tom Dumoulin and his Team Sunweb teammates have switched from Giant to Cervélo framesets for the 2019 season, with Dumoulin staying on an all-round, lightweight race frameset by swapping the Giant TCR for the Cervélo R5.

While the frameset has changed, the team retains Shimano Dura-Ace R9100 series groupsets. Giant also provided the team with wheels and the majority of finishing kit last season so Sunweb has now switched to Shimano Dura-Ace wheels, finishing kit from PRO and bottle cages from Elite.

The team also moves from Vittoria tubular tyres to offerings from Continental, a popular choice in the WorldTour, as well as new computers from Sigma Sport.

The 1.85m tall Dutchman rides a size 56 frame, in conjunction with 175mm crank arms. Dumoulin opts for a standard gearing combination of 53/39 chainrings and an 11-28 cassette.

Like last season's Giants, Team Sunweb is using Shimano Dura-Ace R9100 series drivetrains

Team Sunweb has stuck to its red, white and black team colours, with silver Cervélo decals adorning the down tube of the frame.
