Cervelo P5X – 2017

There’s more to the ultimate triathlon bike than blowing benchmarks away. For the first time in Cervélo’s history — for the first time in history, period — the unique needs of every triathlete, whether training, racing or travelling, are truly front and centre. From aerodynamically integrated storage and stress-free packing to unprecedented micro- and macro-adjustability, the P5X focuses on a singular goal: Helping triathletes achieve their personal best.

Whether training or racing, everything triathletes need to support themselves, including nutrition, flat kit and cold weather gear, can be securely stowed in the P5X’s exclusive Smartpak, Stealthbox and Speedcase components. With the added convenience of three round bottles placed exactly where they are wanted, performance will never be compromised. The P5X also takes the stress out of assembly and travel. It can be disassembled by removing a few bolts with minimal tools, while the two-piece foldable aerobar with proprietary padded holster ensures secure, quick packing.

Aero excellence is integral to Cervélo’s DNA, and the P5X is no exception. More than 180 hours of wind-tunnel testing, along with extensive CFD analysis of 150-plus frame iterations, pushed the limits of performance further than ever before. On average, the P5X is 30 grams faster than the P5 at +15 to -15 yaw angles in a full Ironman setup.

Perhaps the greatest achievement of the P5X is the ease with which athletes, shops and fitters can make subtle adjustments to set up the bike for speed. The unprecedented micro- and macro-adjustability allows every athlete to find their perfect position quickly and easily. And because Cervélo believes confidence and performance are synonymous, the P5X features flat-mount disc brakes and thru-axles to improve safety and boost stiffness. Not only does this system contribute to the bike’s peerless aerodynamics, it also offers exceptional modulation and stopping power in all conditions with minimal maintenance.

The P5X is available in two different builds. The utmost features the latest SRAM RED eTap system, including a SRAM crank, and comes equipped with ENVE 7.8 wheels. The second build showcases an Ultegra Di2 groupset, a Rotor crank and Hed 6.9 wheels.

A fully customized Cervélo travel case, co-developed with Biknd to make travelling with the P5X safe and stress-free, comes as an option for purchase.
