The C5, is designed to inspire confidence through a new endurance fit that delivers predictable, stable handling.
Going the distance never felt so fast. Cervélo’s speed-first design has joined forces with a new focus on versatility and comfort that makes the most of long days in the saddle. Uniquely engineered to endure, these bikes combine exceptional lightweight design with the performance-enhancing compliance of 32mm tire clearance and Squoval tube shapes. Then there’s the integrated disc-braking system and fine-tuned endurance fit, which boost rider confidence through stable and responsive handling.
Cervélo’s most versatile platform occupies a sweet spot between aggressive racing bikes and so-called “gravel grinders,” with an engineering-driven approach to bike design improving stability, comfort, versatility and safety without sacrificing anything in terms of performance.
Single-piece rear triangles and wide seatstays boost back-end and bottom-bracket stiffness, allowing weight reduction to be the focus of the carbon-fibre layup used elsewhere across the Squoval tube shapes.
Moving the bottom bracket closer to the ground lowers the C Series’ centre of gravity, while increasing fork and stack length allows for a more upright riding position and a decrease in stand-over height, all while avoiding the “tower of headtube” look. Confidence is also about controlling speed, which is why the C Series incorporates the latest disc-brake technologies, such as the flat-mount standard and through-axles, to enhance safety, drive-train alignment and performance.
The C Series uses disc brakes and the “flat-mount” standard to ensure compatibility with virtually all commonly used calipers and rotor sizes, and through-axles to improve alignment and safety. Accidental wheel dropouts, for instance, are not just unlikely — they’re impossible.
