Cervelo P5 3:1 vs. P5 6:1 - The Breakdown
CBD Cycles - 12/03/2013
The Cervelo P5 is the product of everything Cervelo has learned about aerodynamic bike design.

And more...

Working with Magura Hydraulic brakes and 3T handlebars Cervelo has improved frame aerodynamics to the best level in the industry while providing the best braking performance, most adjustable fit and highly advanced component integration.

You will leave your age group behind by minutes because Cervelo has led the industry for years.

The P5 is offered for purchase in four options.

For Roadies:
The P5 Three (3:1 UCI legal fork)
- Frameset = $4,999
- Complete Bike = $6,699 with Shimano Dura-Ace, mechanical and Magura Hydraulic RT6 (alloy) brakes.

For the Triathletes:
The super-aerodynamic P5 Six (6:1 non UCI legal fork)
- Frameset = $7,199 with Magura Hydraulic RT8 brakes and 3T Aduro bar/stem
- Complete Bike = $10,000 with Dura-Ace Di2 and Magura RT8 (carbon) brakes.

It’s offered in six sizes: 48 (650b wheels), 51, 54, 56, 58, 61cm.

Because the P5 brake and cockpit design is simple and low maintenance the bike is easy to pack into and reassemble out of a flight case.

Behind the seat tube is a covered pocket that accepts a battery if you’re running a Shimano Di2 drive train. If you’re not using Di2, however, you can use the pocket for storage—you’ll just need to remove the rear wheel and unscrew the anchor to get into it.

In addition to the handlebar mount, bottle cages can be attached to the back of the seat post and the down tube. Cervélo also provided attachment points for a bento box behind the stem and a storage device just above the BB.

The P5 is endowed with Cervélo’s BBright bottom bracket standard. BBright is essentially BB30 with the non-drive side of the shell pushed out 11 millimeters. Cervélo claims this detail improves both frame stiffness by allowing larger down tubes, seat tubes and chainstays. Though there are specific BBright cranks, a variety of crank systems—including SRAM, Shimano and Campy—can be used with the right adapter BB.

Magura, in collaboration with Cervélo, have developed a fully hydraulic rim brake system called RT8 TT that promises to be a game changer in the time trial and triathlon world. Cervélo will incorporate it into the triathlon-specific version of their new P5 and has 1 year of exclusive spec of the new brake.
