Cervelo’s S5 Team is revolutionary even for a company synonymous with the word. It begins with a carbon layup that’s tuned to optimize stiffness laterally and torsionally, plus shave every gram possible. Then, Cervelo’s aero genius hits high gear with a dropped down tube and an extended rear-wheel cutout to smooth the transition of air from the front to rear wheel with nary a hiccup. The wind-cheating wizardry continues with an hourglass head tube, internal cable routing with top-tube entry and seatstays that shield the rear brake from turbulence to complete an ultra-trick frameset that screams towards the finish line with awesome efficiency and the maximum aero advantage. Its components are revolutionary too: Shimano's Ultegra Di2 electric drivetrain and Rotor 3D cranks that offer incredible function and ergonomics with gossamer weight. And, you'll love the race-worthy 3T bars and stem and the easy-rolling Fulcrum wheels with choice Vittoria tires.

I have tested and ridden the predecessor to this and the 2012 is the polished version. The bike is uber-fast. It has the genes of the P4 and the quick handling of the R5ca. If you want the BEST bang for the buck right now, this is the bike, especially in that it is coupled with the Ultegra Di2! You will NOT be disappointed!
