Re-designed colourway for 2017. Since shortening the head tube from the previous model the S5 has emerged as the racing bike of choice for those looking for the ultimate aero advantage over the rest of the field. Offering clearance for up to 25mm tyres the cervelo S5 can be used for; training, sportives, road racing and long course triathlon, whilst remaining a master of each discipline. Even if you're just racing to the next coffee shop this frame will give you the edge.
If the Ultegra, Dura Ace and Dura Ace Di2 Cervélo S5 builds aren't quite what you're looking for, let our expert Cervélo mechanics build up your dream spec. on this incredible frameset. Whether you have a ready-made list of Campagnolo Record parts, are a devoted SRAM lover, or simply want our advice on tailoring a bespoke build right down to gear ratios and tyre choices, we've been assembling Cervélo custom builds for the past 8 years so will make that dream a reality.
Last year, Germany’s prestigious Tour Magazine named the S5 VWD the fastest aero road bike the publication has ever tested. This year, Cervélo engineers have created an entirely new version that combines all the aero benefit of the classic S5 with improved stiffness and ride quality, while delivering an additional 21.3 Watts of pure speed.
The new version features a unique Cervélo All-Carbon, Aero handlebar and HED Jet 6 Plus SCT wheelset, making it aerodynamically faster than ever.
Better Stiffness, Enhanced Usability, Zero Weight Gain
Compared to the S5 VWD, the new S5 is 35% stiffer torsionally, and 6% stiffer at the bottom bracket. As a result, ride quality of the new S5 is exceptional—both handling and rider interaction with the road are noticeably improved.
The new S5 has the same proven steering geometry as the classic version plus a shorter stack for lower riding position, and adds Future-Proof Cable Management so the frame is fully compatible with mechanical, electronic, or hydraulic systems. Storage for internal batteries is integrated into the down tube.
Bottom line: An aero road bike with all the stiffness of a modern road bike, even better out-of-the-box aerodynamics and no weight gain.
