Product Details

Cervelo 

 

The New S5 is about one thing…..SPEED,  and lots of it! The culmination of 16 years of aerodynamic engineering at famously high technology Canadian bike outfit Cervelo. It represents a visually subtle, but complete redesign of the award winning previous S5.

 

First thing we notice when we jump aboard is that this bike feels fast. It’s got a front end and bottom bracket stiffness which seems to exaggerate any thrust of power you put through the pedals - like all well designed carbon racers these days, there is an almost in-perceivable “spring” in the rear triangle which seems to kick back and encourage more positive engagement of power.

 

Where’s it all coming from? Well to look at the numbers; Cervelo quote a 35% Increase in head tube torsional stiffness, 17% Lateral stiffness added at the fork and 6% increase in Bottom Bracket stiffness.

 

OK, so it;s fast. But let me be clear, the S5 isn't a scary bike to ride! Far from it, when spinning along, The S5 feels a lot like riding any other Cervelo road bike. We were surprised by this as the new S5 features a geometry change - foregoing Cervelo’s famously generous headtube in favour of a slightly longer reach and slightly lower stack. The motivation behind this is clearly aerodynamic, but the position is still what we’d describe as mid geometry for a race bike.

 

The other thing that Cervelo have improved upon is rider comfort. Aero bikes have always suffered with a stiffer ride characteristic due to the teardrop shape of the rear seat stays offering less vertical compliance. This has been significantly improved over the previous iteration of the S5, giving the bike a more all-round focus.

 

Another aerodynamic feature of the S5 is a Cervelo designed aero handlebar. It’s quickly developed the nickname of “hammerhead” in the shop due to it’s resemblance to the iconic looking aquatic predator, and I’m going to be honest it’s something of a marmite component. It clearly improves aerodynamics with the bars representing up to 20% of the total aero drag of the frame (as they’re the leading edge) but the bars are a little more difficult to hold when climbing on the tops, and they pretty much force you to mount your Garmin on the stem.

 

Beware Excessive Integration!!.... The bonus here is that the bars are not integrated into the stem, and as we know from doing hundreds of bike fittings - handlebar choice and position are critical. You represent more of an aerodynamic obstacle than the bars. So if you’re stuggling to adjust your position due to having a non-modular (integrated) set of components...your aero savings will be lost...and then some…..again Cervelo have adopted the best compromise between practicality and aerodynamics.
