About the P5

Your Weapon Against the Clock

• Designed with only one thing in mind: aero performance
• Go-to for long course triathletes, TT specialists, and splits with a notable uphill
• Stiffness built into head tube and bottom bracket for predictable, efficient power transfer
• Aero cable stowing saves watts and keeps the front end clean
• P5 models are fully legal for UCI-sanctioned events

The P5 is Cervelo’s flagship TT bike. It serves as the foundation for the groundbreaking P5X platform. For years, the P5 has owned its status as a legend for its acute aero performance, responsive handling, and adjustable fit.

About Cervelo

Cervelo bikes were faster from day one. The team started with custom requests and broke into odd-at-the-time, aerodynamic frames. Fast, smooth ride? Thanks, rigorous testing and iteration.

Highlights
- This bike combines lightweight carbon with aerodynamic tube shapes for maximum speed & efficiency.
- New handlebar tape offering padding & a secure grip.
- New Selle San Marco Aspide saddle perfectly blends lightweight with all day comfort.
- New bottom bracket for smooth pedaling.

Master Mechanic's Notes
- Light scuffs across the front & rear triangles.
- Light scratches on the drive side fork leg.
