The P2 SL comes from a long line of high-performance time trial/triathlon bikes that starts all the way back in 1996 with our first production model, the P2. With features such as the (for the time revolutionary) aerodynamic shapes, internal cable routing, horizontal dropouts and extended seat mast, the P2 was a no-holds-barred speed machine. It was also impractical and expensive.
The tubing has been refined with the Smartwall 2 set, further reducing the weight while increasing the stiffness. The finish is upgraded to an anodization to offer the best possible scratch-resistance. The parts kit is stepped up another notch to DuraAce, offering pro performance at a very affordable price. The result is that the P2 SL is still ahead of its time today while it continues to build on ten years of family history carrying people to their personal TT/Tri victories.
Full aero TT/Tri frame and seatpost - Building on ten years of experience, this member of the P2 family offers pro-level performance at an affordable price. The downtube, seattube and seatpost all feature Cervélo's proprietary TrueAero aerodynamic shapes.
Rearwheel cutout - The seattube features a tight-fitting rearwheel cutout to further improve the aeordynamics. The frame has horizontal dropouts with set-screws to allow the rider to adjust the cutout gap depending on the size of tire used, and ensures that the airflow from the seattube to the rearwheel is as smooth as possible for tire sizes from 19-25mm.
Cervélo Smartwall 2 tubing - Putting the material where it matters, the P2 SL offers great bottom bracket and torsional stiffness despite the narrow aerodynamic profile of its tubes.
ICS Internal Cable Stops - The best internal cable stop system available. Easy to install, easy to service, easy to keep clean and improved aerodynamics.
Adjustable geometry - The flippable seatpost allows for an adjustment in seattube angle range of anywhere between 74-79 degrees so the rider can tailor the geometry to his/her specific desires.
