The bike that LAVA Magazine called "The New Baseline", the Cervelo P3 is the bike that all others are compared to, with its excellent aerodynamics, a wide range for fit options, easy packing for travel, and accessible storage.
The P3 frameset is among the aerodynamic leaders in its class, with aerodynamic shaping and a thin front profile to help it slide through the air with ease. It uses a dropped down tube to help reduce drag, shielding seat stays to hid the rear brake from the wind but not from the mechanic, and the P3 fork offers a very small aero upgrade over its P2 brethren.
The P3 uses the Cervelo-developed BBRight bottom bracket which widens the bottom bracket shell by 11 millimeters on the non-drive side, improving stiffness and slightly trimming weight. The bottom bracket on the drive-side is identical to BB30 and provides plenty of clearance for a wide range of cranks.
The Cervelo P3 frame comes in two paint options, a black, gray, and red traditional options, and a black and fluoro high visiblity option.
