C5 Engineering

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.

Weight

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.

Ride quality

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.

Usability

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.
