Cervelo S5 Force ETAP AXS Carbon Road Bike 2024

PLEASE NOTE: Image is for illustration purposes only, check spec listing for actual components.

The S5 has one job - get to the line before everyone else. Under the likes of Wout van Aert, Marianne Vos, and Christophe LaPorte, the new model has already proven itself as a tool without equal. In the 2022 Tour de France, this bike propelled Wout to the highest ever Points Classification score of the modern era. At 480, Wout was some 194 points ahead of his nearest rival - tangible proof that Cervélo keeps delivering aerodynamic gains to our World Tour athletes.

The new S5 has reduced drag by 65 grams, and increased the frame’s surface area while still reducing overall weight. The deeper frame sections maximize the shapes allowed by the UCI. Meanwhile the iconic V-stem has been further refined and a new fork designed to simplify the entire front end.

What’s more, a ground-breaking new wheel design concept has been co-developed with Reserve to increase stability and reduce drag in turbulent aero conditions.

V IS FOR VELOCITY

In pursuit of speed, everyone wants to try different positions to find their most aggressive fit. The S5's iconic V-stem not only inspires confident handling at high speeds, it's now also remarkably simple to dial in your perfect set-up. All the necessary spacers come with the bike, and there’s now only one bolt length, reducing complexity and making the system 53g lighter in the process.

FRAME ENHANCEMENTS

The UCI’s new regulations on aerodynamic design allowed Cervelo some additional room to deepen their aero profiles and squeeze 65 more grams of drag performance out of what is already the fastest aero bike on the market. You’ll notice a deeper head tube and BB area, and more aggressive shaping on the trailing edges of the tubes. Since the new S5 is only compatible with electronic shifting, Cervelo were able to tidy the dropout a bit, and update the shaping all over the bike.

TIRE CLEARANCE

Wider wheels and tires are faster aerodynamically, and more comfortable to boot. S5 comes specced with 28mm tires but has clearance for up to a 34mm (measured) tire. The frame is optimized to complement the wider Reserve 52/63 turbulent aero wheels. In addition to the handling benefits, this saves over 5 watts compared to the previous Reserve wheelset.

HANDLEBAR REFINEMENT

Cervelo have improved the comfort of the handlebar, and tweaked the shape to get a perfectly flat bar-to-hood transition. They now use a two-bolt interface that allows for infinite tilt adjustments between 0 and 5 degrees.

KEEPING IT SIMPLE

Bike fitters at every level are moving away from longer-offset seat posts, and the new S5 comes stock with a 15mm offset post on most sizes (vs 25mm offset on outgoing S5). The old seat posts are forward-compatible, and Cervelo will keep the 400mm-long, 25mm offset post in stock for those looking for a more extreme fit.

SRAM INTEGRATED POWER

Red and Force builds include Quarq Zero powermeters integrated into the crank. The integration of a powermeter results in better stiffness, lighter weight, and improved accuracy over aftermarket solutions - and the DZero delivers power measurement accurate to +/- 1.5%, even in variable temperatures.

SORRY CAMPY FANS

The 2022 S5 Disc frameset is designed to accommodate electronic shifting groupsets that use connectors up to 6mm in diameter, therefore Campagnolo EPS is not compatible with this frameset. Mechanical shifting groupsets are also not compatible with this frameset.
