The P5 is a superbike engineered for the real world: fast enough for world champions, and simple enough for everyday use.
Designed using Formula 1-level CFD software and proven in the wind tunnel, the Cervelo P5 has more elite-level victories since its launch than any other triathlon bike. Due to its advanced aero features – such as the extended seattube cutout, aero cable management, and dropped downtube – it’s no wonder the P5 is proven fastest in its category time and time again.
Its SRAM eTAP system delivers flawless shifting with the tap of a finger so you can focus on your performance and the low-maintenance hydraulic brake system from Magura is aerodynamically superior and lighter than mechanical brakes, yet it stops on a dime. Stiffness is achieved through BBright and Cervelo's Evolved Steerer Design, giving you confidence and responsiveness coupled with peak power transfer.
Designed for speed and versatility, this bike features a variety of intuitive storage solutions combining optimal aero locations with ease of access. The integrated aerobar allows for equal aero advantage at highest and lowest settings, allowing you to focus on your best possible fit with no compromises. And because optimum performance relies on precise fit, the P Series offers a wide size range – 48 (with 700c wheels) to 61cm.
- Extended seat tube cutout: A close-fitting curve in the seat tube's trailing edge significantly improves aerodynamics by shielding the leading edge and top of the rear wheel
- Aero cable management: Improves aerodynamic and shift/braking performance by favoring internal cable paths with fewer bends and kinks
- Dropped down tube: Places the leading edge of the tube closer to the trailing edge of the front tire, partly hiding it in the wake of the wheel, reducing drag
- BBright: This asymmetrical 79mm bottom bracket standard yields stiffer and lighter frames and crank systems
Electronic drivetrain systems deliver excellent shifting, easy set up, and solid battery life. Here are some benefits of electronic shifting that you don't want to miss.
Electronic shifting systems use powerful servo motors to rapidly shift the chain. Because microprocessors and sensors constantly monitor every aspect of the system, they shift with surgical precision and without chain rub.
Many major systems have customizable shifting. Some have the ability to add remote shifters for common riding positions, and some even allow you to change the functions of the shifting buttons.
Electronic groupsets are responsive and consistent. There are no cables to stretch and wear out, so you get a flawless shift every time. The added bonus is you'll never have to replace a derailleur cable ever again.
