Some started to grumble, complaining about their performance and the bike that they were riding, no names please Mark Cavendish. It was becoming clear Cervélo were designing something special in the background. And here it is. The undisputed fastest road bike currently available on today's market. It has become a clear market leader, thanks to highly specialist engineering, producing a uniquely integrated V-stem and handlebar design which saves 90% of the bikes overall wind resistance. Thanks to the relaxation of UCI's 3:1 aerodynamics rule that many simply oversaw, Cervélo took full advantage of, re-tuning the fork and seatstay aerodynamic makeup, reducing the bikes overall weight, boosting comfort and making the S5 simply faster than the rest. Finally, SRAM's brand-new innovative 12-speed groupset somehow finds a way to increase the range of gears whilst decreasing the ratio between them, making the cassette more compact, quieter and reliable.
The S5 boasts substantial aerodynamic improvements over its predecessor. Full internal cable routing, a custom bar and stem, riding position, and special frame shapes work together to reduce drag and improve aerodynamics. The result: you go faster.
Maximise your Power!
The best sprinters in the world need a bike stiff enough to handle the extreme forces they produce in the frantic sprint to the line. The new S5 Disc is significantly stiffer at the bottom bracket and head tube, without increasing frame weight.
Confidence & Comfort
You'll feel the difference immediately. Frame stiffness and geometry work together for precise handling and pedalling efficiency. Frame lay-ups and tube shapes, along with tyres up to 28mm wide, soak up road vibrations for a smoother ride.
