When the S5 was first unveiled to the public just days before the 2011 Tour de France, it didn’t take long to demonstrate its superior performance. Quickly boasting seven days in yellow in the Tour de France including two stage wins, the S5 embodies the perfect synthesis of speed and stiffness.

With an overall stiffness increase thanks to the BBright™ platform, this is not only a super-fast bicycle, but one that’s agile and responsive at top speeds, while smooth and comfortable on the toughest road surfaces.

  • Shielding Seat Stays

    Shielding Seat Stays

    Hiding the rear brake from the wind, not from the mechanic. Properly formed seat stays hide the brake and improve air flow over the calliper.

    Aero, Simplicity

  • 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.

  • 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.


  • 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.

    Aero, Simplicity

  • Shaped for Bottles

    Shaped for Bottles

    Drinking is something that every rider needs to do. Taking this into account during design results in a faster overall package.


  • Carbon Dropouts

    Carbon Dropouts

    Tough, compression-molded dropouts save weight with no sacrifice in strength versus traditional metal dropouts.
