The S2 is designed to be an aerodynamic integrated system incorporating the rider, frame, and components. Frame tube shapes and design elements work together to manipulate and smooth the airflow over the bike and rider. The result: you go faster.
Stiffness in critical parts of the frame is essential for calm and precise handling and pedaling efficiency. Most aerodynamic bikes have to trade off aerodynamics for stiffness, but we worked hard to ensure the S2's frame is stiff, while not sacrificing aerodynamic performance.
Built for you
Cervélo builds bikes that are easy to own - so you can spend less time servicing them and more time enjoying the ride. The S2 is specced with non-proprietary components that are easy to upgrade, and the bike is designed to be ready for electronic, mechanical, or hydraulic shifting.

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 S2 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.
- 20% stiffer at bottom bracket than previous S2
- 32% torsionally stiffer than previous S2
“Show the S2 a flat open road and let rip for wonderfully efficient performance...There’s still a certain cachet that comes with owning a Cervélo, and if you appreciate groundbreaking design but can live without the most up-to-date features, the S2 might be for you.”
Aerodynamic, fast, and built for the best sprinters of the World Tour, this bike is a rocket ship.
