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.

The Cervelo P2 retails for $4050 and is available now.
