Cervelo has spent countless hours in the wind tunnel, testing and refining the P3 and it shows with a long list of race wins. This full-carbon speed machine has a shaped and curved cutout seat tube that works in tandem with the rear wheel to smooth airflow, resulting in decreased wind drag. Nearly invisible when viewed from the front, the P3's narrow profile, internal cable routing, shaped chainstays and seatstays all keep the air moving smoothly around the bike as you cut through the wind like a missile. Leading the way is Cervelo's aero carbon fork, which keeps the steering precise and confident when you reach warp speed, while the included reversible seatpost lets you dial-in the perfect clock-crushing position. Meanwhile, it's built with aero bars from 3T that get you in a wind-cheating position for minimal drag, and Shimano's precision-shifting Dura-Ace/Ultegra components you'll love. Now, go set a new PR!
For the ultimate in streamlining the P3 has a constant-width rear wheel cutout, which closely covers the rear tire. Most other cutouts lose efficiency due to a varying width, which hampers proper airflow from the seat tube to the rear wheel.
By integrating the seat tube collar completely into the top tube, the airflow doesn't even "see" the collar and the seatpost can be removed with ease. By integrating the seatpost into the frame aerodynamically like this, but not structurally, you can fit the P3 into any bike case, something that's very difficult with other integrated seatpost solutions with the seatpost molded into the frame in one piece.
With Cervelo's Integrated Accessory Attachment (IAA), the P3 seatpost can secure behind-the-seat components such as bottle cages without the use of clamps.
