Cervélo’s origin myth as a brand was based on building fast, aerodynamic bikes. And when CSC began riding the unknown Canadian company’s Solist in 2003, the aluminium teardrop-shaped tubes were a sensation. So the brand new S5, released earlier this year, has impeccable pedigree. Cervélo say the disc brake-only S5 is sti fer, faster and more comfy than the version it replaces. Integration is the watchword in aerodynamics and the S5 takes this to new levels of aesthetics. The unusual cockpit system is very sleek and is said to enhance the riding position too. Cervélo also say this has helped make the S5 the fastest bike in the world right now.
