The Cervélo P5 Ultegra Di2 is a blazing fast bike with a more affordable price tag than its relatives. This new version of the P5 is stiffer, more aerodynamic, and lighter than any previous models. This version is equipped with an electronic Shimano Ultegra Di2 groupset for easy shifting at a great price. Cervélo has long been known as an innovator in aerodynamics so when they manage to improve the wind resistance of their design, the world takes notice. Thanks to a partnership with Team Sunweb, the P5 has been consistently developed and improved with some of the fastest riders on the planet. The Cervélo P5 Ultegra Di2 is here to help you hit new speeds on the road.
This updated version of the P5 is 22 percent stiffer at the headtube and 26 percent stiffer at the bottom bracket than any of its previous iterations. It also has a 17-gram aero improvement, so each pedal stroke is smoothly translated into powerful forward momentum. These improvements create a ride feel that is better than ever. You will notice more precise cornering at higher speeds with a stiffer response which helps encourage faster pedaling. The P5 now comes with increased tire clearance so you can fit wider tires when you want more traction on the road.
The Cervélo P5 frame is packed with details that set it apart from the triathlon and time trial standard. An aerodynamic Speed Riser post is easily adjustable with a single tool while adding to the aero nature of the bike’s construction. This lets you customize your fit for a precise riding position and make on the fly adjustments. Cervélo’s Speed Riser system comes into play again when it comes to the aerobars. These bars are perfect for triathlon riders and can create infinite aerodynamic riding positions. Aero drag accounts for 90 percent of the resistance you feel when riding and Cervélo does everything they can with the P5 to take the wind out of the equation.
The importance of nutrition and item storage for triathletes is not lost on the P5. Cervélo is ready to accommodate this with tons of options for customization. Aerodynamic storage units integrate perfectly into the frame without disrupting the bike’s aero performance. All your personal items will be easily accessible without breaking your aggressive position. This characteristic is extended to brake control lines and all cable management which is hidden away and aerodynamically integrated. The Cervélo P5 does not compromise in any area. The Cervélo P5 Ultegra Di2 is a brilliantly fast bike that can crush time trials and triathlons for a very reasonable price.
