The P5 brings to the world the most advanced and the most aerodynamic triathlon/TT bike possible. Designed using Formula 1-level Computational Fluid Dynamics software (CFD) and proven in the wind tunnel, the P5 is six to 11 watts faster than other so-called “superbikes”.

Fast and fit, this frameset is the most aerodynamic, best-fitting, and best match of stiffness and comfort. it features a BBright™ bottom bracket for ultimate power transfer and ComfortPly technology which removes unnecessary material to reduce vibration and improve ride quality. Proven as the fastest, its superiority is also demonstrated in its simplicity. The low-maintenance exclusive hydraulic brake system from Magura is aerodynamically superior and lighter than mechanical brakes, and yet stops on a dime. Designed for speed and versatility, this bike features a variety of custom and intuitive storage solutions combining optimal aero locations with ease of access. Skin surfaces are tuned for each AeroZone™ to optimize airflow conditions, resulting in crucial time savings of ~30 seconds in a 40-kilometre race.

Adopted overnight by all our top athletes, it already boasts seven Ironman wins within six months, with outrageous records in the bike split. David Zabriskie won his seventh U.S. Time Trial Championship on a P5, and Caroline ”Xena” Steffen won the 2012 Ironman European Championship. The ultimate proof? Ryder Hesjedal’s win at the 2012 Giro d’Italia, with a decisive TT stage resulting in a 17 second overall victory.

  • Reduced-Friction BB Guide

    Reduced-Friction BB Guide

    Smooth shifting that is easy to set up is no accident. Designing shifting requires a detailed approach. Small details have a huge impact.


  • Dropped Downtube

    Dropped Downtube

    Positioning the down tube perfectly saves drag on the system by taking into account the interaction between the front wheel and the frame.


  • BBright


    BBright increases system stiffness and reduces frame weight while allowing for a large range of crank compatibility in a modern press fit system.
