2022 Cervelo S5 Rival Etap Axs Disc 54cm

Cervelo’s S5 Rival eTap AXS Disc Road Bike makes a formidable tool, whether on a fast-paced Sunday ride or at the sharp end of a race. Designed for aerodynamic supremacy, the TrueAero frame shapes offer minimal resistance to the wind thanks to features like the innovative head tube and the seat tube cut out that shelters the rear wheel. Internal hoses and the wireless groupset further its wind-cheating credentials, as does the V-shaped stem, keeping the bike’s profile as sleek as possible.

SRAM’s wireless technology means no worries about cables getting clogged up or stretching; just snappy, perfect shifts every time. Orbit chain management helps chain retention and reduces chainslap with its clever fluid-damped rear derailleur, and the X-Range gear ratios give a wide range whilst reducing the gaps between the sprockets. With just a 13 tooth difference between them, shifting between the chainrings is excellent, and there is an integrated power meter included with the chainset for more efficient training and access to a huge amount of useful data. Despite looking like a one-piece design, the stem and handlebar can be changed or adjusted separately, giving plenty of scope for finding the ideal position.
