Summary of Reviews

We have read all expert and user reviews on the Cervélo P-Series. In summary, this is what cyclists think.

16 reasons to buy

  • The Cervélo P-Series has a clean appearance with internally routed cables.
  • Testers were pleased the bike is UCI-legal.
  • Disc brakes provide excellent stopping power even on rainy days.
  • Experts were pleased the bike has clearance for tires up to 28mm.
  • Cervélo includes a bolt on aero bento box. This makes it easy for riders to carry fuel and tools.
  • The Aerobottle 500 that is included with the P-Series prevents any additional drag that comes with attaching a water bottle to a bike.
  • The P-Series is easy to maneuver due to the lateral stiffness in its carbon frame.
  • Users have four complete builds of the P-Series to choose from. This allows them to get a bike that meets their componentry preferences and budget.
  • The bike is more affordable than other time trial and triathlon bikes.
  • Adjustment to the seat tube angle allows riders to fine-tune the bike to their preferred riding position.
  • The seat post attachment is hidden and increases the bike’s aerodynamics.
  • Increased stiffness in the bottom bracket promotes efficient power transfer, allowing riders to accelerate on-demand.
  • The bike can fit a normal water bottle if riders choose not to use the included Aerobottle 500.
  • Experts were pleased the bike came tubeless-ready. Running tubeless tires reduces the weight of the bike. It also helps prevent frequent flats.
  • Some builds include Continental Grand Prix tires that are reliable and fast-rolling.
  • The alloy Vision Team wheels roll well on the P-Series. Experts agree that there is no need to upgrade to carbon wheels.

3 reasons not to buy

  • Testers found it difficult to utilize the Aerobottle 500 on the move.
  • The P-Series is not priced for entry-level riders, according to one expert.
  • Cervélo does not offer this model with rim brakes.

Bottom line

The Cervélo P-Series is an aerodynamic triathlon and time trial bike. It is priced affordably for a carbon bike in its category. One expert stated the price is still beyond entry-level pricing. The bike has a stiff carbon frame and a wide bottom bracket that allow riders to accelerate with ease. Climbing is a breeze with the bike’s wide gear range. Cervélo includes features such as the bento box and Aerobottle 500 to ensure riders are hydrated, fueled-up, and have a place to store tools. These are shaped to minimize the effect on the bike’s aerodynamics. Unfortunately, despite the Aerobottle’s sleekness, it’s hard to use it on the go.

Cervelo P-Series Triathlon Bike Review

I have to appreciate the guts it took Cervelo to completely retool their “entry-level” bike while others were simply phoning it in.
