Combining everything Cervélo has learned in 16 years of aerodynamic design, this bike cuts through the wind on a razor’s edge.

The S5 has always been at the top of our aero road series, and demonstrated the best of our aero engineering. The new S5 combines many small improvements throughout to deliver one huge improvement to you: more speed. Increased stiffness, race-ready geometry and improved ride quality combine to make our fastest road bike ever.


Over 100 unique frame iterations were built in layup development alone to perfect the new S5 frame. Our emphasis on systems engineering and structural efficiency maximizes stiffness while minimizing weight—we’ve used new manufacturing techniques to achieve tighter tolerances and improved compaction. Our new layup also balanced the overall increases in head tube and BB stiffness, resulting in improved ride quality so you’ll be ready to spend hours on the road experiencing the instant response and razor-sharp reflexes of the frame. The S5 offers out-of-the-box speed ready to tackle the toughest competition—slicing through the wind, climbing, cornering, and sprinting—from your local circuit to the World Tour.
