The Original Icon

The P3 is an iconic bike in the triathlon and time trial circuits. Offering real-world aerodynamic advantage and flexibility in fit and positioning, the P3 will enable you to be the fastest version of yourself.
Ideal For: Non-drafting triathlon of all distances, Time trial
Aerodynamics

Integrated aerodynamics

Out of all of a bike's features, optimized aerodynamics will have the biggest impact on your speed. We applied learnings from the P5 to create the P3 frame, with distinctive design elements and frame tube shapes designed to reduce drag and make you faster.

Usability

User friendly performance

The P3 will let you focus on training and racing, rather than stressing about your bike. It has flexible storage options (an accessory mount on the top tube and bottle carrier mount on the seat post) and a wide range of fit options, so you can dial in your optimal position.

Ride Quality

Optimized stiffness

You will feel it from your first pedal stroke: a stiff response that inspires you to pedal harder and go faster. The P3's frame is carefully engineered for an optimal stiffness to weight ratio for impressive power transfer and stable and precise handling.

Extended Seat Tube Cutout on the P3
Design / 1 of 3

Extended Seat Tube Cutout

Our Extended Seat Tube Cutout is a close fitting curve in the seat tube, which fully shields the leading edge of the rear wheel to significantly improve aerodynamic performance.
True aero shapes on the P3
Design / 2 of 3

TrueAero™

TrueAero™ combines specific tube shapes, sizes, and design features to improve aerodynamic flow across the bike. The application of TrueAero is tailored specifically for each of our bikes and their intended uses.
BBRight on the P3
Design / 3 of 3

BBRight™

Cervélo developed BBright™ to take advantage of the fact that oversized frame tubes are stiffer and lighter. With the BBright™ system, larger-sized tubes are used in the seat tube, down tube, and lefthand chain stay. The benefit is increased stiffness and pedalling efficiency in a lighter weight frame. BBright™ is compatible with all major bottom bracket standards.

Engineering / of

No wasted effort.

A combination of material, shape, and lay up are used to engineer the desired stiffness of different parts of the frame. For the P3 we optimized the stiffness of the head tube, for stable and predictable handling, and the stiffness of the bottom bracket, so that more of your power goes into turning the rear wheel.

  • Optimized headtube stiffness
  • Optimized bottom bracket stiffness

 

Engineering / of

Less drag, more speed.

The P3 applies all the learnings we made in developing bikes like the P5 and P5X to provide class-leading aerodynamic performance, beating the competition in its price range. Adding to this, the P3 can easily be upgraded, so you can work your way towards even greater aero performance.

  • Class-leading aerodynamics

 

 

Jordan Blanco - MyCervélo Athlete

"I love riding my P3 because it’s reliable, easy to work on and it’s very fast. But most importantly, the P3 is a comfortable ride that helps me perform my best, posting fastest bike splits at almost every race for the past three seasons!"
"The new yardstick for modern Tri."

Triathlete Magazine

"The new yardstick for modern Tri."

"The leap from the old standard to this updated version defines the new, elevated expectations for tri bike performance and functionality."
