Yes, it's gorgeous, yet the flowing curves of Cervelo's P3 are incidental to its chief aim: abolishing wind resistance. The aero geniuses at Cervelo spent countless hours in the wind tunnel, testing, shaping, revising, and testing again, before the P3 took its final shape. A paper-thin, hourglass head tube, airfoil down tube, integrated seat tube, deep rear wheel cutout, and sculpted seat- and chainstays eradicate wind drag. Cervelo's proven geometry, aero fork, and slippery 2-position seatpost ensure an ideal ergonomic platform with fantastic handling. Equipped with a precision-shifting Shimano Ultegra drivetrain and FSA Gossamer crankset, you'll always be in the right gear. Plus, you get quality wheels and components from 3T, and ISM's comfortable Prologue saddle so you can focus on setting new PRs. From time trials to triathlons, Cervelo's P3 is ready to dominate.
Dropping the down tube “hides” it in dirty air, reducing the high pressure normally found on the down tube’s leading edge, and eliminating the low pressure air that normally pulls rearward on the fork crown.
The P3 offers multiple options for carrying your gear, each one specifically positioned to minimize aero drag so you’re always ready to race. It's designed for a frame-mounted battery on the down tube.
It also feature a horizontal, standard two-bolt bottle cage between the arms on the aerobar, which Cervelo has found to be, by far, the most aero position. Two mounting bolts behind the stem add more gear-carrying options.
