Looks so darn hot. BMANX posted it on another forum. Can't wait to see more pictures and a white paper maybe?

Good to see they finally got rid of that front wheel cutout on the DT and just moved the DT closer to the front wheel.

It is damn sexy and I am thinking for the first time ever that it is time to change from Cervelo to Felt.

Reminds me of this:

Weird line down the seat post because of the new clamping system. (Explained by TriRig.com on Felt's new IA Tri bike) This new AR will be using Oxeon TeXtreme carbon fibre so the weight should be pretty good for an aero frame.

It's sexy as hell, but I don't think it's as aero as the S5. I'm wondering if there will be a surprise reveal of a new Cervelo S5 this year

aero wars heating up..

the best aero road frame currently in production


giant propel first (velo mag rated the aero superior to s5 in latest issue)
cervelo s5 second
venge third

i think felt will come close to giant buy unlikely to beat it with exposed front brake.

Nothing wrong with exposed brake. Also, could you remind me of the test protocol from that test? Same position, same bars/stem/wheels/group etc? Bike alone? With a rider?

The true beauty of the S5 is it being developed for rider on the bike, but there are specific things that need to be addressed when doing that.

velo mag editor caley is a regular poster on this site, so i will let him answer the q about protocol used. it is stated in the article all bikes are tested with enve 6/7 wheelsets.


btw. when giant developed the propel they used a robotic pedaling dummy pedalling a 40km/hr. velo mag results reinforced giant claims their bike is currently the fastest...

The testing I am sure was not apples to apples between the bikes because you can't set them up the exact same way. Now if you took the S5 added some Zipp Vuka bars and a TriRig front brake I would bet that it beats the Giant. I do not buy into these tests. Also I would bet that the Giant was tested with their wheels VS stock wheels on the S5 so again not a fair fight. Typical marketing BS.

Looks like the Avanti Corsa DR that was released early this year.
