P2 ICONICALLY FAST
With a heritage that includes two Ironman World Championship victories, the P2 is one of the most successful triathlon bikes of all time. Featuring an identical frame to our P3 with its own unique fork and spec package, the P2 “has made industry excellence accessible,” as Triathlon Magazine Canada has said. Stiffer, more aero and flat-out faster than other bikes in its category, the P2 is also more rider-friendly than ever, with more fit flexibility and versatile storage and hydration options.
RIDER FRIENDLY; ROAD FEARLESS
While the iconic P2’s influence can be seen throughout the triathlon segment, only Cervélo’s design combines our Extended Seat-tube Cutout, Dropped Downtube, and the power of BBright. The P2 also features UCI-legal design and adjustability for optimum TT performance.
BBRIGHT: This asymmetrical 79mm bottom-bracket standard yields stiffer and lighter frames and crank systems.
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.
DROPPED DOWN TUBE: Reduces drag by treating the front wheel and frame as one aerodynamic shape.
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: Ensures your frame is compatible with all current and future derailleur and brake systems.
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.
EVOLVED STEERER DESIGN: The fork steerer’s diameter has a noticeable effect on a bike’s handling. Evolved steerer design applies the diameters and taper designs that best suit each model.
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.
SHIELDING SEAT STAYS: Hide the rear brake callipers from the wind, not from the mechanic.
Properly formed seat-stays improve airflow over callipers without complicating access and service.
REDUCED-FRICTION BB GUIDE: Significantly reduces cable friction in the bottom bracket, which means smoother shifting, easier setup and longer service intervals.
The Reduced-Friction BB Guide maintains a consistent curve for each cable path by avoiding bends or kinks.
ENGINEERING AN ICON
Constantly setting new goals for an iconic, world-championship bike is a difficult task – but we’re up for it. The P2 delivers premium aerodynamic performance, with additional emphasis on ride quality and usability.
The aero features that have made the P2 a trusted choice on the Kona Pier for a decade are all found on this model: Our Dropped Downtube, which reduces the gap between the frame and front wheel; our Extended Seat-tube Cutout, which narrows the gap between the wheel and seat-tube, reducing drag; and our Shielding Seatstays, which hide the rear brake caliper from the wind.
The new P2 is more rider-friendly than ever, with a wide range of fit options to get you dialed in quickly for maximum results from the first pedal stroke. Hydration and nutrition options are intuitive and accessible. And when you are ready to upgrade, the new P2 is ready to grow along with your training routine: it's fully compatible with mechanical, hydraulic or electronic components.
We think ride quality comes in part from being able to dial-in your perfect fit. New P Series geometry includes sizes 45 (650c) and 48 (700c). Our 11⁄8” steerer can accommodate a wide range of aftermarket cockpit options, and Cervélo’s all-carbon aero, rail-adjust seat post offers ~75mm of fore/aft adjustability.
PERFORMANCE SIZE AND SPEC
Accessible performance is achieved through a complete Shimano 105 build, including a Shimano RS510 crankset. Premium fit is aided by Cervélo’s carbon, aero rail-adjust seatpost. Read more in the specs and sizing tabs below.
