Tech behind the two stripes: Cervelo S5

With the turn of the new year came a new chapter for Team Sunweb. We welcomed on a bundle of new names to our cycling family and with it, a selection of the world’s best equipment partners. We are continuously putting our equipment through vigorous testing in order to ensure optimal performance. Can it be lighter? Can it be more aero? Can we recover faster? We’re proud to work with partners who share our innovative mindset and along with our team of the world’s leading experts, are eager to put their equipment and products to the test in order to make small improvements that make the biggest difference at the top tier of our sport.

Team Sunweb Research and Development Expert Piet Rooijakkers said: “The S5 is the most aero race bike we have seen and it saves over 255 grams of drag. Not only is it aero but it is also fast, with the bottom bracket ten percent stiffer than a traditional climbers bike. Plus, it supports an aggressive style of sprinting but also helps in a similar way when riding uphill. The S5 is functional on all terrains, whether that be in the mountains, on the cobblestones and of course in the sprints.”
