There aren’t many bikes that can claim two Ironman Kona championships to their palmares, but Cervelo’s P2 is on that short list with good reason. From the smooth integration of the sleek head tube and sculpted down tube, to the wheel cutout and seamlessly integrated seatpost, every aspect of the frameset is built to defy the wind. Responsive geometry and a stiff fork provides stiff and agile handling, while Cervelo's two-position seatpost and 3T's highly-adjustable Profile aerobars let you dial in your position for optimal comfort and power. The P2 is outfitted with a smooth, reliable Shimano 105 drivetrain and FSA crank, ensuring a wide gear range. Dura-Ace bar-end shifters offer stellar performance and Shimano's R501 wheels are fast and strong.
In Cervélo’s early days, “aero sections” meant NACA (National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics) airfoils.
Cervelo still use some NACA foils, but they no longer just design a tube section (two-dimensional) – they now design entire bike frame skin surfaces (three-dimensional), taking into account the different air flow characteristic in each Aerozone.
By shielding the rear wheel from the wind, this extended cutout yields one of the largest single reductions in aerodynamic drag, while allowing the wheel to maintain its own aerodynamic advantages.
Smartwall intelligently redistributes material around the tube cross-section to increase lateral and torsional stiffness, while adding as little weight as possible. Most unwanted frame flex is out of plane, putting one side in compression and the other side in tension. Thus, material farthest from the center plane has the greatest effect on improving stiffness. Smartwall adds material only at the outside walls, farthest from the center plane, to maximize lateral stiffness and minimize weight.
