This bike is all about you. The P3X leverages Cervélo's learnings from years of studying triathletes of all levels and what you need to achieve your personal best. The result is an aerodynamic, comfortable, and stress-free bike which gives you every possible advantage as you push your limits.
Ideal For: Non-Drafting Triathlons / Olympic / Half and Full Distance Triathlons
Applying cutting-edge layup techniques and design principles, Cervélo made the P3X lighter than the iconic P5X while improving its stiffness. A stiff, light bike climbs better and accelerates faster, offering noticeable efficiency gains and a lively, responsive ride. Put simply, it just feels fast.
The P3X makes your training, travel, and racing stress-free. Precise adjustments to fit and handlebar position are easy to make using an Allen key. Flexible integrated storage lets you set up your storage just how you like it. Standard components make it simple to maintain and travel with your bike.
When you’re spending hours on the bike, comfort is key to your performance. The P3X frame is stiff where it's needed for pedaling efficiency, while compliant for a smooth ride. The result: you feel strong and comfortable on the bike and primed for a good run.
Speed Riser – The Speed Riser is Cervélo’s user-friendly aerobar system for triathlon bikes. The aerodynamic single riser post is easily adjustable to an infinite range of positions with a single tool. This means that you can fully customize your fit, as well as make on-the-fly adjustments to your position.
Integrated Storage – Integrated Storage enables you to store your essential food, hydration and service items so that they are easily accessible yet do not compromise the aerodynamics or structure of your bike. The built-in storage systems provide a simple and clean-looking solution to storage.
Aero Cable Management – The Cervélo frame, fork, handlebars, and associated components are designed to hide brake and shift control lines (mechanical, electrical, and hydraulic) from the wind for improved aerodynamics without sacrificing performance.
Lighter Means Faster – The lighter the bike, the easier it is to keep moving. Cervélo keeps the weight of their frames and parts as low as possible, without sacrificing stiffness, ride quality , or safety. Their engineers achieve this by combining the ideal mix of shapes, materials, and lay up techniques. The P3X frame is 16% lighter than the P5X frame. P3X parts are lighter than P5X parts: basebar is 13% lighter, Speed Riser is 8% lighter, Speedpak Storage is 43% lighter, seatpost and rear hydration mount are 22% lighter.
No Wasted Effort - A combination of material, shape, and lay up are used to engineer the desired stiffness of different parts of the frame. Cervélo optimized the stiffness of the head tube, for stable and predictable handling, and the stiffness of the bottom bracket, so that more of your power is directly transferred to your forward momentum. The P3X is 8% stiffer at the headtube and 15% stiffer at the bottom bracket than the P5X.
Ride Harder, Longer – Confidence and comfort are essential when you’re spending hours in the saddle – because if you’re not feeling good, you can’t ride at your best. The P3X incorporates design features that reduce rider fatigue and help you feel comfortable and safe from your first pedal stroke to your last. Radical frame design (with no seat tube or seat stays) and special layups offer the right amount of vertical compliance for a smoother ride. Clearance for tires up to 36mm wide for better traction and comfort, plus the latest disc brake technologies for excellent braking in all conditions.
