All-New Cervelo S5 and S3 Launched

Designed for all-out speed, the Cervelo S-Series was launched as the original aero bike way back in the early 00’s. Bike design has come a long way since the Soloist model was ridden in the World Tour peloton and 23mm tyres were the norm. The most recognisable development of late is without doubt the integration of disc brakes and the trend for wider tyres – the new S5 is disc brake only with room for 28mm tyres.

Along with the launch of the new S-Series bikes, Cervelo has also announced a new partnership with Team Sunweb. The men’s and women’s World Tour teams will be riding Cervelo bikes from 1st January 2019, meaning big names such as Tom Dumoulin, Michael Matthews, Leah Kirchman and Coryn Rivera will all be on-board either an S, an R or a P-Series bike.

The result of many hours aero testing, the most striking feature of the new S5 is without doubt the v-shaped stem. The thinking and science behind this innovative setup is that the v-shaped hole allows air to flow more cleanly between the arms of the stem with less disruption than a standard stem.

The new S5 boasts substantial aerodynamic improvements over its predecessor. Full internal cable routing, a custom bar and stem, riding position, and special frame shapes work together to reduce drag and improve aerodynamics. The new S5 Disc is significantly stiffer at the bottom bracket and head tube, without increasing frame weight, meaning no power is lost during a frantic sprint to the line.

Along with a re-engineered S5 comes an all-new S3, with improved aerodynamics for those looking to take every speed-increasing advantage available. Hours spent testing in the wind tunnel have led to a design with fully integrated cables, a new bar and stem and refined frame shapes that work together to reduce drag and help you go faster.

Specific frame lay-ups and tube shapes soak up road vibrations, helping to reduce your fatigue during long days. Combined with optimized stiffness and stable geometry, this is a bike that’ll make you feel good and go fast.
