The S makes every part of every ride better, whether during the final sprint on your Saturday morning group ride or your solo interval efforts on the edge of town. We’ve applied years of experience building the most aero bikes in the peloton to create a bike that delivers maximum performance. When the UCI’s frame design rules changed we grasped the opportunity and pushed it to the limits. We made aerodynamic gains via a fully integrated cockpit for both mechanical and electronic builds. The S disc became a whopping 102 grams (13 watts) faster than its predecessor. With such huge gains being made at this highly competitive performance level, the S reflects our commitment to bringing tangible aero gains within reach of more riders. Elite Fit Our Elite Fit is based on extensive observations and analysis of riders' positions. It offers a wide range of positions for all athletes, from endurance riders to Pro-Tour racers, without compromising handling, comfort, or performance. Aero Cable Management The Cervelo 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 usability or performance. Floating RDH Our two-part floating rear derailleur hanger is designed to allow for easy alignment of the rear dropouts, ensuring that the rear axle can be installed quickly and simply every time. This design also incorporates the rear derailleur hanger and comes in different versions (threaded, RAT-style), allowing you to easily update your frame and fork if standards change. BBright Cervelo developed BBright to take advantage of the fact that oversized frame tubes are stiffer and lighter. With the BBright system, larger-sized tubes are used in the seat tube, down tube, and left-hand chainstay. The benefit is increased stiffness and pedaling efficiency in a lighter weight frame. BBright is compatible with all major crank standards. - S5 full carbon frame and fork - Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 drivetrain - 4iiii Precision dual-sided power meter - ENVE SES 5.6 Disc wheels
SURVIVAL OF THE FASTEST The S5 prioritizes aerodynamic performance and stiffness, making it a platform preferred by the fastest sprinters in the world. Don't think it's a one-trick pony, though-despite the lateral stiffness, the S5 delivers an incredibly comfortable ride. You've no doubt noticed the now-iconic V-Stem. We optimized that shape to deliver the best possible performance in the wind, hid the cables inside, and make enough bar/stem/stack options to fit just about anyone. When you climb aboard an S5, you won't just go fast, you'll feel fast. The frame stiffness, geometry, layup, and tube shapes combine to make a bike that's comfortable enough to spend all day off the front, but will respond to a last-second acceleration better than anything else. It'll clear 28mm tires, too, to allow you to fit the newer crop of wider rim/tire combos that help you eke out even more aero advantage.
A versatile frameset from OPEN that can be set up to be a very quick road bike, cross, or gravel bike. The tire clearance allows for up to 40mm wide tires (depending on the tire). This frameset is a great go-anywhere bike that is sure to be suitable for all of your gravel/dirt/trail/ and tarmac riding. The carbon layup on the U.P. and U.P.P.E.R. is the right blend of the right carbon in the right places. OPEN strategically places the ultra-high modulus (very stiff) carbon where possible and tougher/more compliant grades of carbon where they must making their frames light and durable. The difference between the U.P. and the U.P.P.E.R. are weight and color: - The U.P.P.E.R. saves 180g over the U.P. (U.P.: 1040g, U.P.P.E.R.: 880g) - The U.P.P.E.R. is available in matte black as where the U.P. is available in green and blue. Both bikes are available in RTP (Ready-To-Paint) if you want to go the custom painting route. NOTE: There is no difference between the U.P. and U.P.P.E.R. in geometry, durability, stiffness, tire clearance, or capacity.
