C5 ENGINEERED TO ENDURE
Countless hours of research and testing are reflected in the peerless versatility and compelling potential of the ultimate endurance road bike. Designed to inspire confidence through a new endurance fit that delivers predictable, stable handling, the C5’s frame is one of the lightest of its kind on the market today. Combine this with fine-tuned stiffness, a uniquely integrated disc-braking system and the compliance of 32mm tire clearance and Squoval tube shapes, and you’ll relish every moment of those long days in the saddle.
Rider confidence can’t be measured in a laboratory or wind tunnel. Cervélo is renowned for its engineering-driven approach to building the world’s fastest and lightest road, track, triathlon and time-trial bicycles, but the success of the C5 won’t be measured in WorldTour victories or Olympic gold medals. Rather, our engineering team used its profound understanding of pro athletes’ bicycle requirements to skillfully balance performance with ride quality.
A single-piece rear triangle and wide seatstays boost back-end and bottom-bracket stiffness, allowing weight reduction to be the focus of the carbon-fibre layup elsewhere across the C5 frame. The result: At 850 grams with paint and all small parts, the C5 is the lightest endurance road frame on the market today.
Two proprietary features perfectly compliment the C5’s damped ride effect: An all-carbon fork developed by Cervélo’s pioneering Project California team, which skillfully balances lateral stiffness with comforting vertical compliance; and unique curved seatstays, which were engineered to provide a high vertical deflection.
Longer chainstays add trail-balance handling at the front end and boost tire clearance to 32mm, providing room for a standard fender and mount. A downtube rock guard and chainstay protector help prevent potential damage on mixed surfaces, while through-axles, flat-mount calipers and Future-Proof internal cable routing deliver smooth shifting every time.
