Cervelo P5X – The Ultimate Aero Triathlon Bike

P5X PERSONAL. BEST.

There’s more to the ultimate triathlon bike than blowing benchmarks away. For the first time in the history of Cervelo — for the first time in history, period — the unique needs of every triathlete, whether training, racing or travelling, are truly front and centre. From aerodynamically integrated storage and stress-free packing to unprecedented micro- and macro-adjustability, the P5X focuses on a singular goal: Helping triathletes achieve their personal best.

THE ULTIMATE TRIATHLON BIKE

The world’s fastest, most technologically advanced tri bike has been engineered as a complete system that harmoniously addresses speed, fit and usage. Years of engineering and testing have come together to form this masterpiece

DATA-DRIVEN DESIGN

A systems-engineering approach has revolutionised the entire triathlete experience, not only on race day, but also in training and travel.

AERO CABLE MANAGEMENT

IMPROVES AERODYNAMIC AND SHIFT/BRAKING PERFORMANCE BY FAVOURING INTERNAL CABLE PATHS WITH FEWER BENDS AND KINKS.

 Brake and shifter cables are engineered to enter the frame at strategic points — at the front of the toptube and downtube, and at the rear of the derailleur-side chainstay, for instance — to reduce aero drag. Technologies such as our Reduced-Friction BB Guide cut mechanical drag as well.
