The S5 for years has stood alone ahead of the pack, proud of its rich heritage of TDF stage wins and grand tour victories in partnership with Dimension Data. This version of the S5 comes fully dressed in Shimano's brand-new Ultegra 8000 groupset that offers improved braking resistance, lighter components and even smoother shifting than previously. If the 2018 season is set to be anything like the 28 grand tour victories of 2016 then the bike might just live up to its potential.
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.
