The S-series is the aero bike segment of Cervélo, and the S5 is the admiral ship of the series.

The updated color scheme is a mix of the Garmin-Sharp team’s blue, white and black shades combined with a splash of the Tour’s yellow. Both on the inside of the fork and the logo on the down tube has been spared argyle squares, while the top tube is adorned with a pair of fine “100th” stickers.

Although the new design is primarily intended for the team’s nine selected Tour riders, Cervélo will make limited edition on sale. Price and availability date is still unknown.
