Probably the geekiest, coolest thing I've seen all year. Bit stunned that they actually did it!

Limited release. Not sure on the official nomenclature yet. Sounds like it's a standard frame wrapped up judging from the language used, though will see what I can dig up from some local Cervelo dealers. It might take some stick for adding a bit of weight (if it does turn out to be a wrap job), but looks alone would add +5 watts.

Wonder if the S5 would look as good wrapped like this :P

I’m guessing that it is a wrap job. Executing that in paint would be a pain in the butt with masking and removing the dots.

Still it is really cool. Kind of makes me want to get one!

These guys do the wraps for Cervelo https://www.medienkraftwerk.de
A full bike is not cheap - quite hard to make a wrap look good

I just received my R5 Classics Edition frameset....doesn't seem to be a wrap. I'm not an artist but it appears that a stencil was used to paint the white dots. The white dots have texture when you run your hand over them.

I did some stenciling on one of my bikes. It came out a little cheesy but that was sort of the intention. A fake carbon fiber look on my fixed gear conversion.
