R3-SL and S3 frames in exclusive black and yellow pinstripe paint available for limited time

Cervelo announces limited TdF edition frames

Madison has limited stock of two special edition frames based around Carlos Sastre’s own Tour conquering ride.

The R3-SL and the super-aero S3 are available in an exclusive black and yellow pinstripe design, as seen on the defending champion’s bike.

Of the two limited edition packages, the R3-SL takes centre stage with only 50 being produced worldwide. Seeing as it was the bike Carlos spent the majority of last year’s Tour riding, each R3-SL TdF LTD frameset will come complete with a yellow jersey personally signed by the great man himself and a certificate of authenticity. The R3-SL TdF LTD should be available by mid July, priced at £3099.99 SRP with only a small quantity of the 50 pieces worldwide destined for the UK. At only a £100 premium over the standard R3-SL it should prove very popular.

The S3 TdF LTD shares the same striking black with yellow pinstripe detailing as the R3-SL TdF LTD, but celebrates Cervelo Test Team’s inaugural Tour de France. 200 of the S3 TdF LTD will be produced worldwide and unlike the R3-Sl it doesn’t include a signed yellow jersey, hence the unchanged price of £3499.99. Stock of the S3 TdF LTD is also expected by mid July.

Both frames come complete with 3T Funda Team forks, FSA integrated headset and seatpost. The R3-SL is supplied with a 3T Doric Offset LTD, whilst the S3 comes with Cervélo’s own carbon aero SL seatpost.
