The S5 is an aerodynamic road bike built for the fastest sprinters in the world. It is stiffer and more aerodynamic than ever before, while offering excellent comfort and ride quality. Representing the pinnacle of Cervelo's "systems thinking", whereby multiple Cervelo engineers are assigned specific areas of the bike's design in order to focus on perfecting each detail, the result is their stiffest and most aero iteration of the S-Series yet. If you live for the exhilaration of going fast, the S5 will give you every possible advantage.
The S5 boasts substantial aerodynamic improvements over its predecessor. Full internal cable routing, a custom bar and stem, and special frame shapes work together to minimize drag. The extended seat tube cutout is a close-fitting curve which shields the leading edge of the rear wheel to significantly improve aerodynamic performance. Additionally, the S5 Disc is significantly stiffer at the bottom bracket and head tube, without increasing frame weight. The frame's stiffness and its geometry work together for precise handling and pedaling efficiency—you'll feel the difference immediately. However, recognizing that efficiency is also affected by compliance, Cervelo designed the S5 to avoid being overly rigid. Carefully chosen carbon lay-ups and tube shapes, along with room for tires up to 28mm wide, help soak up road vibrations for a smoother ride. The result: you go faster. With its striking design and all-business attitude, the S5 offers an unforgettable ride.
This bike boasts a SRAM Red eTap AXS drivetrain, providing 12 speeds and smoother gear progression in a super-clean fully wireless electronic drivetrain. This results in smaller jumps between gears in both the front and rear derailleurs, while still offering at least the same gear range—making your ride faster and more efficient than ever.

Electronic drivetrain systems deliver excellent shifting, easy set up, and solid battery life. Here are some benefits of electronic shifting that you don't want to miss.
Electronic shifting systems use powerful servo motors to rapidly shift the chain. Because microprocessors and sensors constantly monitor every aspect of the system, they shift with surgical precision and without chain rub.
Many major systems have customizable shifting. Some have the ability to add remote shifters for common riding positions, and some even allow you to change the functions of the shifting buttons.
Electronic groupsets are responsive and consistent. There are no cables to stretch and wear out, so you get a flawless shift every time. The added bonus is you'll never have to replace a derailleur cable ever again.
