CERVÉLO S3 HIGHLIGHTS
If you want more speed, you need to look at your aerodynamics, as aero drag accounts for as much as 90% of the overall resistance affecting a rider.
For the new S3 Cervélo spent hours in the wind tunnel, testing and refining designs. Full internal cable routing, a new bar and stem, and frame shapes work together to reduce drag on you and the bike, so you go faster. Faster than the 2018 S5 in fact.
The disc model of the new S3 is 102 grams faster than its predecessor – that’s the equivalent of 13 watts.
Increased stiffness at the bottom bracket enables efficient power transfer, so your hard work is transferred to rapid acceleration. Stiffness at the head tube is critical to confidence-inspiring handling – you’ll feel how stable and precise the S3 is when cornering and descending at speed.
FASTER FOR ALL
You’ll enjoy a smooth ride on the new S3. 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.
CERVÉLO S5 HIGHLIGHTS
The S5 boasts substantial aerodynamic improvements over its predecessor, and pretty much anything else on the market.
Aerodynamics are critical to engineering a fast bike: aero drag accounts for as much as 90% of the overall resistance affecting a rider. Full internal cable routing, a custom adjustable “split” bar and stem, optimised riding position, and special frame shapes work together to reduce drag and improve aerodynamics. The result: you go faster. Much faster.
The new S5 is 42 grams faster than its predecessor – that’s the equivalent of 5.5 watts.
MAXIMIZE YOUR POWER
The best sprinters in the world need a bike stiff enough to handle the extreme forces they produce in the frantic sprint to the line. The new S5 Disc is significantly stiffer at the bottom bracket and head tube, without increasing frame weight.
13% increase in headtube (torsional) stiffness and 25% increase in bottom bracket stiffness over the previous S5.
CONFIDENCE AND COMFORT
You’ll feel the difference immediately. Frame stiffness and geometry work together for precise handling and pedalling efficiency. Frame lay-ups and tube shapes, along with tires up to 28mm wide, soak up road vibrations for a smoother ride.
THE PERFECT FIT
You’ll be able to find your ideal fit on the S5, with six stem lengths, four bar widths, 5° of rotation, and up to 32.5mm of stem spacers.
Clever cable routing, through a beautifully engineered headtub, and with replaceable components throughout make the S5 straight forward to adjust to fit you perfectly.
