The P3 is an iconic bike in the triathlon and time trial circuits. Offering real-world aerodynamic advantage and flexibility in fit and positioning, the P3 will enable you to be the fastest version of yourself.
Ideal For: Non-drafting triathlon of all distances, Time trial

Cervelo developed BBright™ to take advantage of the fact that oversized frame tubes are stiffer and lighter. With the BBright™ system, larger-sized tubes are used in the seat tube, down tube, and lefthand chain stay. The benefit is increased stiffness and pedalling efficiency in a lighter weight frame. BBright™ is compatible with all major bottom bracket standards.
Out of all of a bike's features, optimized aerodynamics have the biggest impact on your speed. We applied learnings from years of building the fastest aero bikes to create the P3 frame, with distinctive design elements and frame tube shapes which reduce drag and make you faster.
The P3 will let you focus on training and racing, rather than stressing about your bike. It has flexible storage options (an accessory mount on the top tube and bottle carrier mount on the seat post) and a wide range of fit options, so you can dial in your optimal position.
You will feel it from your first pedal stroke: a stiff response that inspires you to pedal harder and go faster. The P3's frame is carefully engineered for an optimal stiffness to weight ratio for impressive power transfer and stable and precise handling.
A combination of material, shape, and lay up are used to engineer the desired stiffness of different parts of the frame. For the P3 we optimized the stiffness of the head tube, for stable and predictable handling, and the stiffness of the bottom bracket, so that more of your power goes into turning the rear wheel.
The P3 applies all the learnings we made in developing the fastest aero bikes on the circuit to provide class-leading aerodynamic performance, beating the competition in its price range. Adding to this, the P3 can easily be upgraded, so you can work your way towards even greater aero performance.
