Details

Cervelo started their company based on wind-tunnel test data so it's no surprise their super-aero P2 almost totally hides from the wind. Nearly invisible when viewed from the front, this full-carbon time-saving machine hides the rear wheel with a shaped cutout and features internal cable routing throughout resulting in one slippery bike. Its chainstays and seatstays stay close to the center of the bike, only flaring out when necessary, to stay hidden from the wind as long as possible. Included is a reversible seatpost that lets you dial-in the perfect clock-crushing position, while a Cervelo carbon fork keeps the steering precise and confident. This slick sled is built to win, too, with aero bars and stem from 3T to get you in a wind-cheating position for minimal drag, and Shimano's precise shifting Dura-Ace/Ultegra components so you can blaze through the gears. Get ready to set new PRs!

Cervelo's hourglass head tube and narrow frontal profile optimize aerodynamics. Also, the internal cable routing further reduces wind drag.
The chainstays and seatstays are curved toward the center to stay out of the wind. A seat tube cutout shields the rear wheel smoothing the airflow.

The P2's massive, aero bottom bracket junction offers exceptional power transfer and additional wind cheating. The horizontal top tube with integrated seatpost clamp minimizes the surface area of the bike further reducing wind drag.

    I got this bike to race triathlons. I had competed in 6 tris over the prior 5 months using an old school Specialized Allez Epic which is a decent road bike. My first race with this bike I took almost three minutes off a 10 mile course I had done in a previous race. This was after only having the bike a week and putting about 25 miles on it. I like it and can't wait to see how next race season goes after getting to train on it a few months.

      Comments:

      I rented the Cervelo P2 to ride in the 2010 St. Anthony's triahlon. I had not had a great training season prior to the race, and yet in spite of being in less than race form, I rode the course 9 minutes faster than my time for St. Anthony's 2007 when I was in much better shape. This is a truly great bike for the type of triathlete who takes the sport seriously, but still has to stick to a budget. The bike rides like a $7,000 racer, and yet it is more comfortable than the other bikes in its class. Definitely an enthusiastic recommendation, and I can't wait to ride it again in the 2011 St. Anthony's race on May 1.

        As an aging age group triathlete, I was amazed at how much more comfortable I was on the P2 compared to my previous Kestral KM40. I could stay in the saddle for hours on end without pain and could climb the steepest of hills with speed. I enjoyed this bike so much that I actually started riding more than swimming and running. I liked it so much that I bought the same bike after the original was stolen. This is the best ride I've ever had.

          I noticed the difference right away in aerodynamics and weight. In my first race with this bike, only a few others passed me and in the second race, only one person passed me. I am by no means an exceptional cyclist, but this bike has really blazed my bike split. I love everything about it.
