Description

The Cervélo S5 has long claimed to be the fastest bike on the road, and now it is back with even more improvements. Cervélo led the aero charge years ago, and they have only widened the gap in the competition. In the 2022 Tour de France, the S5 was seen propelling Jonas Vingegaard to yellow and helping Wout van Aert destroy the competition for the green sprinter jersey. The S5 is more aero than ever thanks to new UCI regulations, managing 65 more grams of aero drag improvement. In addition, a deeper head tube and bottom bracket area and more aggressive tube shaping make this the most aerodynamic S5 yet.

The famous V-Stem of the Cervélo S5 has also been updated to its most convenient and fastest model yet. Cervelo chose this shape for the aerodynamic benefit and easy control of your bike at high speeds. The stem design allows less turbulent airflow over the top tube and around the rider's body, eliminating a lot of wind resistance and allowing for internal cable routing of its world-class SRAM eTap AXS 12-speed electronic groupset. In addition, it is now faster and easier to set up than ever. The bike includes all the needed spacers, and only one bolt length is necessary, making the system less complex while reducing its weight by 53 grams. The V-Stem sets the S5 apart from other aero bikes on the market, helping with speed, stability, and integration.

The Cervélo S5 gives you an outstanding balance of stiffness to attack straight-away sprints or sharp corners. A lowered and stiff bottom bracket is excellent for stability and pedaling efficiency, allowing your energy input to be transferred to the back wheel rather than deforming the frame. The torsional stiffness of the S5 assures minimal twisting of the frame on your turns, so you can keep your momentum even when the course does not stay straight. This frame features excellent vertical compliance to help keep you from losing speed on bumpy roads. In addition, 34mm tires can take on difficult riding. The enhanced frame of the new Cervélo S5 makes it a true sprinter's bike.

An essential aspect of an aero bike is the ability to keep an aero riding position. Most aerodynamic drag comes from the rider's body, so a comfortable aero position is just as crucial as the bike's aerodynamics. The S5 will help you keep your body aerodynamic throughout your whole race. This riding position, paired with the carefully engineered shape of the tubes, adds up to a blazing-fast ride. The Cervelo S5 was tested in real-world turbulent aerodynamic situations, which helped Cervélo design a frame that could deal with wind from all angles rather than a simple wind tunnel situation.

Cervélo expects the S5 to be nothing less than the fastest bike on the road this year. As the primary weapon of team Jumbo-Visma on the UCI World Tour, this year's Cervélo S5 will be better than ever. So get your hands on the Cervélo S5 and ride like some of the most powerful athletes on the planet.
