Cervelo’s P2 is a TT/triathlon icon that puts superbike performance within reach of any serious athlete from beginner to professional. From the smooth integration of the sleek head tube and sculpted down tube to the wheel cutout, every aspect of this bike defies the wind. In addition to its impressive aerodynamics, the P2 provides dialed, agile handling and optimal power transfer. Its wide range of fit options ensures a comfortable set-up that will maximize your power. Shimano Dura-Ace and 105 with an FSA crank shift smoothly and reliably, while the Shimano wheels accelerate with ease and hold their speed. Cervelo’s aero seatpost, Profile’s highly adjustable T4 bars, and Fizik’s Arione Tri2 saddle round out this stellar bike.
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.
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.
Many “aero styled” bikes have arbitrary, “made-up” tube sections that can actually increase drag. 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.
