The P5 is Cervélo’s latest creation, bringing to the world one of the most advanced and most aerodynamic triathlon/TT bike possible. Designed using Formula 1-level Computational Fluid Dynamics software (CFD) and proven in the wind tunnel, the P5 boasts to be six to 11 watts faster than other so-called “superbikes”.
Fast and fit, this frameset is one of the most aerodynamic, best-fitting, and best match of stiffness and comfort. it features a BBright bottom bracket for ultimate power transfer and ComfortPly technology which removes unnecessary material to reduce vibration and improve ride quality. Proven as one of the fastest, 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 for each AeroZone to optimize airflow conditions, resulting in crucial time savings of ~30 seconds in a 40-kilometre race.
Adopted overnight by all Cervélo’s top athletes, it already boasts seven Ironman wins within six months, with outrageous records in the bike split. David Zabriskie won his seventh U.S. Time Trial Championship on a P5, and Caroline ”Xena” Steffen won the 2012 Ironman European Championship. The ultimate proof? Ryder Hesjedal’s win at the 2012 Giro d’Italia, with a decisive TT stage resulting in a 17 second overall victory.
