S5 Aerodynamic Design
When the S5 was first unveiled to the public just days before the 2011 Tour de France, it didn’t take long to demonstrate its superior performance. Quickly boasting seven days in yellow in the Tour de France including two stage wins, the S5 embodies the perfect synthesis of speed and stiffness. Combining everything Cervélo has learned in 17 years of aerodynamic design, this bike cuts through the wind on a razor’s edge.
With an overall stiffness increase thanks to the BBright™ platform, this is not only a super-fast bicycle, but one that’s agile and responsive at top speeds, while smooth and comfortable on the toughest road surfaces.
Shielding Seat Stays - Hiding the rear brake from the wind, not from the rider. Properly formed seat stays hide the brake and improve air flow over the calliper.
Built for Bottles - Drinking is something that every rider needs to do. By taking this need into account during design, the overall result is a faster ride.
Dropped Downtube - Positioning the down tube perfectly saves drag on the system by taking into account the interaction between the front wheel and the frame.
BBright - BBright optimizes system stiffness and weight while allowing for the largest range of crank compatibility in a modern press fit system.
Extended Seat Tube Cutout - Maximized extended cutout that smoothes airflow from frame to wheel, yeilding one of the largest single reductions in aerodynamic drag.
