The Cervélo Disc Ultegra aims to dominate the competition with its aero speed at a more reasonable price. Cervélo led the aero charge years ago and they have only widened the gap on the competition. Flat tubing greatly cuts down on any problems caused by wind. The same can be said for the aero front end and seatpost. Cervélo?™s S Series is already proven on the road and only gets better this year. All of this is topped off with a Shimano Ultegra groupset, creating a superbike without the superbike price.?
One of the most noticeable details on the Cervélo S5 is its V-shaped stem. This shape was chosen for aerodynamic benefit and easy integration. The design of the stem allows for less turbulent air flow over the top tube and around the rider?™s body, eliminating a lot of turbulence. These bars also provide a wide range of fits and options to keep you comfortable. This integrated cockpit allows for internal routing of all mechanical and electronic shifting systems for ultimate customization.
The Cervélo S5 gives you a great balance of stiffness to attack straight away sprints or quick corners. A lowered and stiff bottom bracket is great for stability and pedaling efficiency, allowing your energy input to be transferred to the back wheel rather than deforming the frame. The torsional stiffness of the S5 assures minimal twisting of the frame on your turns so you can keep your momentum even when the course does not stay straight. Balancing both bottom bracket and torsional stiffness cover all your bases in keeping your speed and maximizing your efficiency.
A very important aspect of an aero bike is the ability to keep an aero riding position. Most aerodynamic drag comes from the rider?™s body, so a comfortable aero position is just as important as the aerodynamics of the bike. The S5 will help you keep your body aerodynamic through your whole race. An aggressive riding position will feel natural and comfortable, keeping your body in an aerodynamic state. The vertical compliance of the S5 frame does not only help you stay comfortable; it stops you from losing valuable speed over bumpy roads.
Cervélo expects the S5 to be nothing less than the fastest bike on the road this year. As the main weapon of team Sunweb on the UCI World Tour, this year?™s Cervélo S5 will be better than ever. Mechanical Shimano Ultegra shifting keeps things easy so you can focus all of your energy on riding fast. This groupset is affordable as well as smooth and reliable. If you want to crush your next time trial or road race, the Cervélo S5 will help you reach your maximum potential.
