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
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.
THIS CERVELO ASYMMETRICAL 79MM BOTTOM-BRACKET STANDARD YIELDS STIFFER AND LIGHTER FRAMES AND CRANK SYSTEMS.
BUILT FOR BOTTLES
CERVELO MINIMIZES THE AERO PENALTY BY PARTLY INTEGRATING THE WATER BOTTLE INTO THE DOWN TUBE AIRFOIL.
DROPPED DOWN TUBE
REDUCES DRAG BY TREATING THE FRONT WHEEL AND FRAME AS ONE AERODYNAMIC SHAPE.
EVOLVED STEERER DESIGN
THE FORK STEERER’S DIAMETER HAS A NOTICEABLE EFFECT ON A BIKE’S HANDLING. THE CERVELO EVOLVED STEERER DESIGN APPLIES THE DIAMETERS AND TAPER DESIGNS THAT BEST SUIT EACH MODEL.
