Simply - Faster!
The P5 brings to the world the most advanced and the most aerodynamic triathlon/TT bike possible. Designed using Formula 1-level Computational Fluid Dynamics software (CFD) and proven in the wind tunnel, the P5 is six to 11 watts faster than other so-called “superbikes”.
Fast and fit, this bike is the most aerodynamic, best-fitting, and best match of stiffness and comfort. Proven as the fastest in the wind tunnel, its superiority is also demonstrated in its simplicity. The low-maintenance exclusive hydraulic brake system from Magura is aerodynamically superior and lighter than mechanical brakes, and yet stops on a dime. Designed for speed and versatility, this bike features a variety of custom and intuitive storage solutions combining optimal aero locations with ease of access. Skin surfaces are tuned to optimize airflow conditions, resulting in crucial time savings of ~30 seconds in a 40-kilometre race.
Adopted overnight by all Cervelos top athletes, it boasts many Ironman wins with outrageous records in the bike split and gives the competitive edge to team Garmin-Sharp in the Time Trial. The ultimate proof? The P5 is the bike chosen by Ironman World Champion Frederik Van Lierde
Skin surfaces tuned for each AeroZone™ to optimize airflow conditions at each point along the frame. The P5 also features a BBright™ bottom bracket for ultimate power transfer and ComfortPly™ technology which removes unnecessary material to reduce vibration and improve ride quality.
An essential part of the integrated concept is one of the world’s fastest and best-fitting aerobars. The integrated Aduro™ aerobar has been designed by Cervélo and manufactured by 3T. It features 100% hidden cables to eliminate aero drag and engineered cable paths that minimize bends and maximize shifting performance. With its innovative design, the Aduro can be positioned lower than most existing bars and allows for over 11 cm of easy upward adjustment.
The new designed brake is a cooperation featuring the aero design by Cervélo and the hydraulic technology by Magura. The P5 brake system is aerodynamically superior to and lighter than virtually any available standard caliper or disc brake. The zero-maintenance hydraulic system provides outstanding modulation and exceptional stopping power. It includes integrated aero brake levers and an aerodynamic caliper design. The calipers adjust to fit all wheels, including the newest wide rims.
Designed for speed and versatility, a full range of sleek and intuitive storage and hydration solutions are custom designed for the P5. From an integral bottle cage mount between the aerobar pads, to a place for the Shimano Di2 battery located inside the frame’s HiddenPocket™, to multiple locations for nutrition and further water bottles, the P5 mates optimal aero locations with ease of access
