Cervelo's engineers left no stone un-turned, or more precisely, no dull edge unshaven to achieve absolute aero perfection. With help from fluid dynamic software, the P5 Six has dominated Ironman competitions and Grand Tours ever since. The front end is a seamless airfoil built around the head tube, which is sheathed by an integrated fork that leads up to the highly customizeable, one-piece 3T Aduro stem, base bar, and aero extensions. A shallow front wheel cutout and deep rear cutout reduce the drag coming off your wheels' trailing and leading edges, respectively. Finally, Magura's hydraulic brakes are completely hidden from the wind, with the front caliper integrated into the fork and the rear tucked behind the bottom bracket. Shimano's Dura-Ace Di2 and Rotor's stiff crankset shifts with the slightest touch of the levers, and Mavic's Cosmic Elite wheelset supplies miles of smooth riding. It's all topped off with ISM's Prologue saddle, which—along with the easily adjustable bars and aero extensions—provides exceptional comfort.
The P5 offers multiple storage options, each one specifically positioned to minimize aero drag, so you’re always ready to race. Cables and the battery are completely sheatehd inside the frame’s HiddenPocket for an aero improvement of 10-20 grams.
It also features a horizontal standard two-bolt bottle cage between the arms on the aerobar, which Cervelo has found to be by far the most aero position. Two mounting bolts are also incorporated behind the stem to allow for further aero storage options.
ICS3 (Internal Cable Stops) erradicates the need to run internal cable housing the entire length of the tube, which adds friction and up to 200 grams of dead weight.
Internal Cable Stops function much like external stops. The housing fits into the stops and the bare cables travel in unobstructed paths through the frame, into the bottom bracket cable guide, and straight to the derailleurs.
ICS3 also reduces aerodynamic drag by placing the cable housing entry out of the wind behind the stem. In order to have the cables enter the top tube, yet travel unobstructed through the downtube, Cervelo's ICS3 frames use Teflon-lined stainless steel tubes, curved to guide the cables into perfect alignment with the Bottom Bracket cable guide.
Dropping the down tube “hides” it in dirty air, reducing the high pressure normally found on the down tube’s leading edge, and eliminating the low pressure air that normally pulls rearward on the fork crown.
