The New Cervelo P2

In 2008, Chrissie Wellington won the Ironman World Championships riding a Cervelo P2.  Not too bad.

The new P2 now features a new geometry, identical to that of the P3.  It also boasts most of the wind cheating features of it’s higher end brother.

Apart from a slightly less aerodynamic fork, the P2 is a spitting image of the P3.  That’s pretty good for an “entry level” model, considering that the P3 is the most successful time trial bike in history.

The P2 comes with a Profile Design T2 Wing basebar and T4+ extensions.  The rest of the bike is spec-ed with Shimano Dura Ace bar end shifters, 105 derailleurs, FSA crank and brakes.  It sits atop a pair of Shimano R500 wheels.

Your rear end will enjoy the plush Fizik Arione Tri 2 saddle.  The new P2 uses the single bolt seat clamp and is compatible with bolt on accessories from Xlab.

This new version of the bike offers a wider range of fit options (from a size 45cm frame) than before.  Overall, the P2 is an excellent, race-ready bike that is going to set the standard for entry level triathlon bikes.  It’s also going to give competitors’ higher end bikes a real run for their money.
