The bike that LAVA Magazine called “The New Baseline” brings you the lineage of the category-leading P5, along with our widest range of fit options, easy packing for travel, accessible storage, and all our key aero features. The Cervélo P3 has quickly become a mainstay at the Ironman World Championships, with enough P3s on the Kona pier to be a top brand on its own.
With the P3, Cervélo's engineering benchmarks are perfectly aligned with our riders’ benchmarks: greater power, enhanced aero, and consistent performance.
Cervelo developed BBright to take advantage of the fact that oversized frame tubes are stiffer and lighter. On the right side, frame tubes are already as wide as possible; any wider and they’d hit the chainrings. But on the left side there are no chainrings, so BBright makes use of this extra space by extending the BB shell by 11 millimetres, nearly doubling the width of the left chainstay. At the same time, the drive-side dimensions of the frame are identical to BB30 and provide plenty of clearance for a wide range of cranks, including those with power meters.
Improving aerodynamics requires an engineering approach that accounts for the entire system: Bike, rider and wheels. The Dropped Downtube places the leading edge of the tube closer to the trailing edge of the front tire, partly hiding it in the wake of the wheel.
Future-Proof Cable Management achieves compatibility across mechanical, electronic and hydraulic brake and derailleur systems. Future-Proof frames include interchangeable cable stops that snap into place and are easily swapped out by hand to accommodate upgrades. You can buy with confidence, knowing your bike is easily upgradable and can be enjoyed with the latest technology for years to come.
A larger steerer diameter adds torsional stiffness with no weight penalty. A smaller steerer diameter is more compliant and can also be used to reduce headtube frontal area, and in turn, aerodynamic drag. How do we select which size to use? By defining performance goals — weight savings, aerodynamics, stiffness, ride quality and usability — at the start of the frame design process, Cervélo engineers choose the best steerer diameters/tapers to achieve those objectives.
Cervélo pioneered the Extended Seat-Tube Cutout, and we do it better than anyone. In order for it to be effective, the tire must fit closely to the frame and the seat-tube cross-section must have the right shape to help air flow smoothly across the seat-tube and around the wheel.
Properly formed seat-stays improve airflow over calipers without complicating access and service.
The Reduced-Friction BB Guide maintains a consistent curve for each cable path by avoiding bends or kinks.
