S5 OUT-OF-THE-BOX SPEED
The new S5 has revolutionized the aero road segment – again. It combines many incremental improvements across the frame to deliver one huge improvement to you: more speed. The model that BikeRadar calls “spectacular in terms of raw aggression and savage speed” now offers increased stiffness, race-ready geometry and improved ride quality to produce our fastest road bike ever. Now available in the Team Dimension Data Limited Edition.
CATEGORY-DEFINING AERO ENGINEERING
The new S5 perfects aerodynamic performance advantage with no compromise in weight — no small challenge given the high standards of the previous-generation S5. We also succeeded in significantly increasing torsional stiffness, a key factor in handling, to permit a more aggressive riding position. Our emphasis on systems engineering and structural efficiency maximizes stiffness while minimizing weight, and we’ve worked to perfect new manufacturing techniques to achieve tighter tolerances and improved compaction.
Out-of-the-box speed means that all facets of the bike — components included — maximize aero advantage. Our Dropped Downtube and Shielding Seatstays are designed to minimize aero drag at precise locations on the frame using a systems approach. Cervélo’s new All-Carbon Aero Handlebar saves 4.4 Watts over a standard round bar, and is compatible with standard 31.8mm stems.
The new S5 offers a 6% increase in bottom bracket stiffness, giving you a high degree of connection to the road and a feel of efficiency with each pedal stroke. A 35% increase in headtube torsional stiffness and 17% increase in lateral fork stiffness offer increased confidence in cornering and overall handling.
You’ve probably never relished the climbs on an aero bike before. An aero bike that also offers category-leading lightweight performance is rare, but the S5 delivers. Our lightweight engineering refuses to compromise the airfoil shapes that give the S Series its distinctive design — and more distinctive performance — all without adding unnecessary weight.
THIS ASYMMETRICAL 79MM BOTTOM-BRACKET STANDARD YIELDS STIFFER AND LIGHTER FRAMES AND CRANK SYSTEMS.
BUILT FOR BOTTLES
MINIMIZES THE AERO PENALTY BY PARTLY INTEGRATING THE WATER BOTTLE INTO THE DOWNTUBE AIRFOIL.
EXTENDED SEAT TUBE CUTOUT
A CLOSE-FITTING CURVE IN THE SEAT-TUBE??S TRAILING EDGE SIGNIFICANTLY IMPROVES AERODYNAMICS BY SHIELDING THE LEADING EDGE AND TOP OF THE REAR WHEEL.
FUTURE-PROOF CABLE MANAGEMENT
ENSURES YOUR FRAME IS COMPATIBLE WITH ALL CURRENT AND FUTURE DERAILLEUR AND BRAKE SYSTEMS.
TOUGH, COMPRESSION-MOLDED DROPOUTS SAVE WEIGHT WITH NO SACRIFICE IN STRENGTH COMPARED TO TRADITIONAL METAL DROPOUTS.
