Cervelo P5 Six Triathlon
Cervélo triathlon/time trial bicycles have won more pro races than any other, and they are by far the most popular bicycles at Ironman and time trial events for athletes of all levels. Boasting revolutionary aerodynamic designs developed through Cervélo's extensive testing and experience, Cervélo has designed the most copied triathlon and TT bicycles in history. Once you ride one, you’ll immediately feel the lightning speed, but also the perfect fit and comfort needed to sustain your aero position during long distance races, or to tackle the toughest sprints.
How does Cervélo make a superbike ‘simply faster’?
The P5 features the most aerodynamic frameset and aerobars, but speed hasn’t come at the expense of simplicity. Built with non-proprietary components, Cervélo has made this bike easy to set up, easy to adjust, and easy to travel with—no more searching out specialty shops on the road or carrying extra tools. It also features an aero hydraulic brake, maximizing speed management with zero maintenance. Last but not least, we made sure it offers the widest possible fit range and innovative hydration and storage solutions. Easy to handle, easy to live with, and easy to push to top speeds.
The bike is designed to work with new parts from 3T and Magura; both companies worked closely with Cervélo on development. Magura RT TT hydraulic rim brakes stop the bike, bringing back a brake style last popular in the 1990s. Cervélo says the system is lighter than (less than 500 grams for the RT8 TT) than existing cable-actuated systems. It’s also more aerodynamic, thanks to shaping by Cervélo, and more powerful than a cable brake. Part of the advantage is that the hydraulic lines are unaffected by complex internal cable routing, which creates friction, and sub-par braking. Since the system is sealed, and uses hydrophobic mineral oil (instead of hygroscopic like most DOT fluids), they should require almost no maintenance, barring any damage to the lines or fittings. Magura backs them with a “five-year leakproof warranty.”
The low-maintenance P5 brake system is aerodynamically superior to and lighter than any standard caliper or disc brake. The rear brake of the P5 is hidden below the chainstays under the bottom bracket for ultimate speed.
Cervélo CFD-developed, wind tunnel proven — Simply the fastest aerobar ever engineered. The integrated 3T Aduro™ aerobar is the world's fastest and best fitting aerobar. With three both macro and micro height settings, the P5 is the perfect match to your best aero position.
The P5 is not only faster, but it also fits better. Offering the widest range of adjustability, the P5 will allow you to achieve your optimal riding position. The frame also incorporates ComfortPly™, and BBright™ to ride comfort and efficiency.
Simply the most advanced integration of Shimano's Dura-Ace Di2. With hidden pockets behind the seat tube to house the Di2 battery, internally routed cables through the handlebar and stem and concelled cables throughout, the integration of Di2 with the P5 is second-to-none.
