Cervelo has been the pioneer in aero-road bike desgin since 1996, and Cervelo has continued to establish thought leadership with this newest generation of aero road bike design. The Cervelo S5 has extended innovations in aerodynamic triathlon and road bikes into the ultimate road bike.
Aerdynamics have always been important for speed, the better the aerodynmaics, the low the drag, the faster you go. The faster you can go without wasted energy, the more comfortable you are.
