Cervelo P5 Six SRAM eTap Bicycle 2018
Cervelo began their journey to road excellence by developing super bike level aerodynamic designs, proving their R&D credentials and commitment to efficient speed. The P5 is really a throwback to those original concepts. Developed for triathlon and time trial the P5 quickly captured the imagination and harnessed speed of any rider who threw a leg over. Here packaged as a complete bike P5 Six SRAM eTap (11s) Bicycle, any athlete can access a pro-level ride.
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. With all of Cervélo's advanced aero features such as the Extended Seat-tube Cutout, Aero Cable Management, and Dropped Downtube, it’s no wonder the P5 is proven fastest in its category time and time again. Match that peak performance with a focus on usability, and you have a frame that’s "Simply Faster."
While primarily known for its speed, the P5 also puts the rider in complete control, as not all tri courses are flat and straight. 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 offers great feel and when you need it, 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 the asymmetric BBright shell/chainstay design,and the Evolved Steerer system, giving you confidence and responsiveness coupled with peak power transfer. When you match that with the super clean, fast-shifting 11-speed SRAM eTap drivetrain and wireless control, and you have real weapon of a bike that is simple to travel with and developed for one thing- winning.
The Red 22 eTap groupset is lightweight, efficient, and reliable. With this P5 Six the 52-36T crankset is matched with an 11-28 cassette for a perfect mix of top end and overall range for long and middle distance events. The front and rear derailleurs are wireless, both using compact rechargeable batteries. For the aero package, Cervelo equips the aerobar set-up with their eTap Blips and Clicks buttons, which are wired, but only to the BlipBox, mounted just behind the stem, which sends the wireless signals to the derailleurs. The system is simple and easy to use, with an encrypted AIREA wireless signal. Battery chargers are included.
The cockpit itself features 3T aero components, with the very adjustable Aduro base bar and aero extensions. Changing the set-up is actually pretty straightforward, and your bike will come with some extra bolt lengths in case you have more drastic fit needs. For the saddle Cervelo chose the ISM PS 1.0, which is a true tri-model that fits many body types and rider positions. The deep, aer seatpost is part of the frameset, and offers great full post and saddle rail adjustment, with more angle range than is necessary.
Cervelo has long under spec'ed wheels on the complete bikes, figuring most people will train on the included set and have a set of true race wheels. This is sound thinking, but not always well received. With the P5 Six SRAM eTap Bicycle it is a pleasure to find the medium depth HED Jet 6 Black carbon wheelset, which can be raced and trained on thanks to it's excellent aerodynamics and durability. The brake track is ideal for the Magura rim brakes, and resists overheating for ideal control and stopping power. When you take it all in as a package, this is bike for multi-sport athletes who are seeking every justifiable advantage to push their performance over the top. Whether striving solely for impressive personal bests, topping the age group category or looking to win outright, the P5 Six is fully capable of carrying you there.
