Description

"If you were to weaponise a bicycle, it would look like this. Cervélo’s P5X is an all-black, all-carbon stealth bomber. It’s the fastest, most expensive and most technologically advanced triathlon bike ever built. It looks like Batman’s ultimate ride. Climb on board and there is no mistaking its true purpose – pure, undiluted, intoxicating speed. The aggressive riding position and phenomenal gearing mean that the stopping power of the hydraulic disc brakes isn’t a luxury, more a necessity. Despite the bellicose styling, the P5X is a bit of a pussy cat and is remarkably easy to use. It’s comfortable, the fit is fully customisable and it quickly packs away into a bike bag. Bizarrely, the addition that’s created the biggest buzz are the frame’s ‘integrated storage units’. Haven’t they heard of jersey pockets?" Martin Love
