Cervelo optimized the stiffness of the head tube, for stable and predictable handling, and the stiffness of the bottom bracket, so that more of your power is directly transferred to your forward momentum. Aerodynamics are critical to engineering a fast bike: aero drag accounts for as much as 90% of the overall resistance affecting a rider. The P5’s frame design and customized tube shapes improve its aerodynamics while enhancing its stiffness, weight, and usability – all in a UCI-legal package. The P5 is a dual purpose aero bike designed for success in both time trial and triathlon. Cervelo have made it simple and user-friendly to adapt the bike to fit you and your specific needs. From intuitive position adjustments to flexible storage options, you’ll be able to seize every possible advantage. A combination of material, shape, and lay up are used to engineer the desired stiffness of different parts of the frame
A bike focused entirely on one thing: your performance. Cervelo applied years of experience in engineering the fastest aero bikes and real-world testing with our pro athletes. The result is a bike which pushes the boundaries in every way.
WEIGHT – LIGHTER AND FASTER
Our engineers dedicated countless hours to testing and data crunching to make the P5 not only stiffer and more aero, but lighter as well. A lighter bike accelerates faster and climbs better to give you every possible advantage on the road.
AERODYNAMICS – REVOLUTIONARY AERODYNAMICS
The legendary aerodynamics of the P5 are fine-tuned to create an aero system that is stiffer and lighter than ever before. Its frame shapes, handlebar and fit positions, and design features work together to reduce drag and enhance your efficiency.
STIFFNESS – BALANCED STIFFNESS
Cervelo refined the stiffness of key points of the frame to create a bike which corners better and transfers power more smoothly. You will feel it from your first pedal stroke: a stiff response that inspires you to pedal harder and go faster.
