Outrageous speed. Incredible stiffness. The very best in componentry.
The S5 is hard to beat, in fact, most would argue it can't be beaten. The Cervélo S5 Dura-Ace Road Bike is the dominant king of road racing bikes. In 2016 the S5 posted 28 pro-tour victories with Dimension Data, including 5 Tour de France wins. These TDF victories included Mark Cavendish's 4 sprint victories and Steve Cummings mountain stage win, proving it is a truly versatile bike. This version of the S5 comes ready to compete at the very highest level utilising Shimano Dura-Ace 9100 components and ENVE SES 3.4 Clincher wheels. This bike is not designed to mix in with the crowd, it is designed to compete ahead of the crowd.
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.
