The Cervélo S2 uses the same frame as the S3 but comes in a more affordable package thanks to the use of a different fork and the less expensive Shimano 105 11-speed groupset in place of the Ultegra. Beyond the names what this means is that us mere mortals are able to ride the same bike as the pros for a fraction of the cost! So if you want stiffness in the sprint, aerodynamics on the flat, and lightweight on the climbs, and having the flashiest of groupsets isn't your main priority – or maybe you want a frame that you can upgrade in the future – the Cervélo S2 is a very sensible choice.
AERODYNAMICS and COMFORT
The Cervélo S2 combines a focus on aerodynamics with the characteristic S-Series headtube, downtube and seat tube, with the skinnier, comfort-oriented rear triangle of the R-Series. So if you want speed and efficiency without sacrificing comfort, or comfort without sacrificing speed and efficiency, the S2 is a guaranteed winner.
True efficiency doesn’t only come from cheating the wind: the S2’s increased stiffness maximizes your power output. The Evolved Steerer Design boosts stiffness by 32% from the previous S2 for confident, responsive handling. Race-ready stiffness is aided by BBright for a 20% increase in BB stiffness from the previous S2.
The S2 is the perfect choice for the rider who wants cutting-edge aero performance without fear of obsolescence: standard, non-proprietary components are easy to upgrade, while Future-Proof cable management is ready for electronic, mechanical, or hydraulic shifting. Now with 700x25c tire clearance so that you can chase top speeds over any road conditions.
