Primož Roglič’s Bike Size 2022


This post is about Primož Roglič’s Bike Size 2022. More specifically, to Primoz Cervelo R5 2022.

Two years and a half have passed since I first reviewed Primož Roglič’s Bike Size therefore a refresher was due.

Cervelo is the bike sponsor of Team Jumbo-Visma, replacing Bianchi since 2021. 

It is interesting to observe how Primož Roglič found his fitting transitioning from an Italian frame to a Canadian style.

The cycling season is in full motion, and teams are testing their new bikes on races before the Tour de France.

Watching the Paris-Nice allows me to validate Primož Roglič’s Bike Size and set up as close as it will be on the Tour de France and La Vuelta ciclista a España.

As always, Bicycle nerd friend, keep on reading to find out below:

Primož Roglič’s Cervelo R5 Size 2022

I assume you know who is Primož Roglič and how good he is so, I will spare you writing down his winning Palmares and jump straight to the most important stuff.

Primož Roglič’s Bike Size 2022 is a Cervelo R5 Size 51cm.
Yes, Primož is 1m77 tall and weighs 65kg at peak performance time.

If you read my blog, watch my videos, or listen to my Podcasts, you already know that most professional riders race on one to two sizes down than the “publicly recommended” sizes.

What happens here is Primož was racing a size 53cm Bianchi Oltre XR4 (See it here: Primož Roglič’s 2019 Bianchi size) until Cervelo arrived as the team Bike Sponsor.
Cervelo has sizes 54 and 51 in its range.
It is usually where the traditional European frame sizing differs from North American ones.
However, the Canadian brand has a three sizes gap, and the size 51cm has a long top tube considering its size.

Size Does Matter

So to keep the position as close as on the Bianchi, the Cervelo R5 2022 size 51cm is Primož’s mountain stages bike.

The seat post has a 25mm setback, the Fizik Antares saddle is at 735mm high and 62.5mm setback compared to the Bottom-Bracket center.
The distance from the front of the saddle to the handlebar top axle is 550mm.


The handlebar is an FSA-branded one-piece bar/stem combo. However, it looks exactly like the Vision Metron D5 ACR Integrated.
The combo size is 400mm bar width and 120mm stem length (stem has 6 Degrees angle)

Primož uses 172.5mm crank length and Shimano Dura-Ace SPD pedals. Like the rest of the team, he races in Shimano’s S-Phyre RC902 SPD shoes.

Apart from its 51cm frame size, there are hardly any unique features specific to Primož Roglič.
The bike is fully built with Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 9200 12 speed groupset, including the full range of wheels.
Tires are from Vittoria in either tubular or tubeless depending on race profile. However, most preferred are tubulars tires on high mountain stages.
Roglič’s bike features a pair of “sprinters” shifters button on the handlebar to allow fast shifting with the hands on the top of the handlebar.

Primož Roglič wears a Lazer helmet, AGU jersey, bib-short, and sunglasses.

The bike is equipped with a Garmin GPS head unit, and the PowerMeter is also from Shimano.
