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. Proven as the fastest in the wind tunnel, 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 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 boasts many Ironman wins with outrageous records in the bike split and gives the competitive edge to team Garmin-Sharp in the Time Trial. The ultimate proof? The P5 is the bike chosen by Ironman World Champion Frederik Van Lierde

  • Extended Seat Tube Cutout

    Extended Seat Tube Cutout

    A close-fitting curve in the seat tube trailing edge shields the leading edge and top of the rear wheel significantly improving aerodynamics.


  • Aero Cable Management

    Aero Cable Management

    Cable paths are engineered, from the lever to the brake or derailleur, to reduce aerodynamic drag with no sacrifice in performance.

  • 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 Down tube

    Dropped Down tube

    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.
