The fastest gravel bike

Cervélo is ready to put the Áspero-5 up against any all-road/gravel bike out there. 

This ride is dialed in to provide riders with an elite level of performance that the competition can’t beat. 

As one of the lightest and stiffest gravel frames on the market, you’ll feel faster the second you clip in.

The most aerodynamic gravel bike

If Cervélo is known for anything, they’re known for their innovation when it comes to aero. 

They’ve raised the bar yet again with the new Áspero-5, shaving off 32 grams of drag from the previous model. 

Every part of the bike has been painstakingly refined for maximum aerodynamic performance, like the cable-hiding cockpit and cutaway seat tube.

TrailMixer: dual wheel compatibility without sacrificing handling

Trailmixer is a simple chip that makes a big difference. 

It allows you to adjust the trail measurement of your fork so you can keep the same great handling characteristics whether you run 700c or 650b wheels. 

The Áspero-5 ensures you have all the right tools for the job at hand without compromising performance.
