The S5 is an aerodynamic road bike built for the fastest sprinters in the world. It is stiffer and more aerodynamic than ever before, while offering excellent comfort and ride quality. If you live for the exhilaration of going fast, the S5 will give you every possible advantage.
Elbow to elbow, weaving through the peloton, straining to hold the wheel in front. 200 metres to go. This is the moment. Shifting gears and jumping out of the saddle, every part of you straining to pedal as hard as you can to the line.
Cervélo has always been the leader in building fast, aerodynamic bikes. We continue the tradition with the new S-Series. Designed for our World Tour racers and boasting significant improvements in aerodynamics and stiffness, these bikes are about all out speed. If you live for the thrill of the sprint and going fast, the S-Series bikes are made for you.
AERODYNAMICS Aerodynamics is at the very core of what we do at Cervélo. The company was founded with the goal of making cyclists faster, and using aerodynamics is the best way to achieve that goal. We take a system approach to aerodynamics, considering the bike, rider, and all components together. A bike never rides itself, and so we don’t design or test our bikes without a rider. It means that our bikes are not just fast in the wind tunnel, but fast out on the road with you as well.
STIFFNESS The stiffness of your bike has a big impact on your ride experience. The instant connection you feel when you ride a bike with efficient power transfer and responsive handling is a result of stiffness of the bottom bracket area, fork, and head tube. Cervélo has spent years researching and testing these different types of stiffness to create the best possible riding experience for you.
USABILITY Cervélo values standard components and intuitive adjustments, all of which make our bikes simple to own and easy to enjoy. You’ll appreciate this when you get your Cervélo tuned up for the first ride of the season, or pack it up for your next triathlon.
