S5 Red eTap AXS Bike Information
The Cervélo S5 is simply one of the fastest bikes ever to touch the road. Cervélo led the aero charge years ago and they have only widened the gap on the competition. In fact, the S5 was a huge tool used in Jonas Vingegaard’s second place finish in the General Classification at the 2021 Tour de France. Flat tubing greatly cuts down on any problems caused by wind. The same can be said for the aero front end and seatpost. Components such as the handlebar are all smoothly integrated, giving it a sleek look and aerodynamic efficiency. On top of brilliant aerodynamics, this is one of the stiffest and most powerful bikes money can buy. The S5 has cemented itself as one of the best bikes on tour and is for the rider who lives for speed.
One of the most noticeable details on the Cervélo S5 is its V-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 wind resistance, allowing for internal cable routing, and a fit for anyone. The stem leads into the integrated bar which provides 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. In its complete form, the front end of the S5 is incredibly aerodynamic with a low profile to cut through the wind.
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. The new S5 has a 13 percent increase in torsional stiffness and a 25 percent increase in bottom bracket stiffness over the previous S5. There is no such this as wasted effort on an S5.
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. This riding position paired with the carefully engineered shape of the tubes adds up to a blazing fast ride. An aggressive riding position will feel natural and comfortable, keeping your body in an aerodynamic state. The new S5 is more aerodynamically efficient than ever, saving 5.5 watts compared to previous models. The vertical compliance of the S5 frame does not only help you stay comfortable; it stops you from losing valuable speed over bumpy roads. With the ability to equip 28mm tires, the S5 can keep up its speed on even the most difficult roads.
Cervélo expects the S5 to be nothing less than the fastest bike on the road this year. As the main weapon of team Jumbo-Visma on the UCI World Tour, this year’s Cervélo S5 will be better than ever. This version is equipped with a SRAM Red eTap AXS groupset for some of the best 12-speed electronic shifting on the market. With aerodynamic Reserve 50/65mm DT180 wheels, every single part of this bike is made for pure speed. If you want to crush your best times and training sessions on the road, the Cervélo S5 will help you reach your maximum potential.
