2018 P5-SIX RED eTAP Black / Fluro
"Proven fastest in the wind tunnel and on the Ironman circuit, the P5 showcases Cervélo’s industry-leading aerodynamic engineering."
Designed using Formula 1-level CFD software and proven in the wind tunnel, the Cervélo P5 has more elite-level victories since its launch than any other triathlon bike, including Frederik Van Lierde’s 2013 Ironman World Championship, and Mary Beth Ellis and Jodie Swallow’s 2015 and 2016 ITU Long Distance Triathlon World Championships. It also shines in time trials: Ryder Hesjedal clinched the GC at the 2012 Giro d’Italia on a P5.
Named the fastest TT/tri bike in the world by Germany’s Tour Magazin, the P5 optimizes all areas of the frame for aero performance. At its launch, the P5 was proven to save roughly 6 to 11 Watts compared to other “superbikes.” The savings are even greater compared to typical tri bikes. The P5’s frame design takes into account the rider, the components, and their downstream effects, meaning there are significant differences in airflow in different areas of the bike. Designing a bike with different tube shapes in different zones is part of our systems approach to aero optimization.
Known for its speed, the P5’s superiority is also demonstrated in its simplicity. The low-maintenance hydraulic brake system from Magura is aerodynamically superior and lighter than mechanical brakes, yet it stops on a dime. Designed for speed and versatility, this bike features a variety of intuitive storage solutions combining optimal aero locations with ease of access. The integrated aerobar allows for equal aero advantage at highest and lowest settings, allowing you to focus on your best possible fit with no compromises.
Whether you're pushing through the wind at Kona, facing down the clock in a TT, or charging through a solo training ride, every pedal stroke is translated to pure power. Stiffness is achieved through BBright and our Evolved Steerer Design, giving you confidence and responsiveness coupled with peak power transfer.
With Sram eTAP and Ultegra Di2 builds, and featuring Magura RT6 brakes, the P5 offers optimal aero performance.
