The Cervelo P3, the bike that LAVA Magazine called "The New Baseline"pared to, is one of the most popular bikes in the world due to its excellent aerodynamics, 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 sibling.
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 2019 Cervelo P3 frame comes in two paint options, a fluoro and black high-visibility option and a black and red traditional option.
The 2019 Cervelo P3 8060 option comes equipped with a Shimano Ultegra di2 8060 electronic drivetrain with electronic shifting both at the bar ends and on the brake levers. The bar end shifters are the one-button SW-R9160 shifters and the brake lever shifters are Shimano Ultegra di2 8060
The new Ultegra 8060 electronic drivetrain offers more intuitive shifting over its predecessor, redesigned derailleurs, and more. Synchro-Shift and multi-shift are also included and are programmed via the Shimano E-Tube app that lets you program and customize your shifting preferences.
Outside of the electronic shifting and derailleurs, the specification of this P3 is otherwise identical to its mechanical-shifting counterpart.
The crank, cassette, and brakes are Ultegra, and the crank comes spec'd with mid-compact, 52-36 (mid-compact) chainrings. The Ultegra cassette has an 11-28 gear ratio at the time this was written.
The 2019 Cervelo P3 8060 comes equipped with a Profile Design Svet R base bar, 35A ski-bend extensions, sonic bracket, and ergo armrest. The armrests offer ample adjustability, and further adjustability can be accomplished with a stem change if necessary.
The 2019 P3 8060 comes stock with Mavic Cosmic Elite wheels and Continental Grand Prix SL 23mm tires.
The 2019 Cervelo P3 8060 is equipped with an ISM PS 1.0 saddle, one of the best-selling triathlon saddles available.
The 2019 Cervelo P3 8060 is a bike with a specification that cuts no corners and offers a combination of performance, value, and build like few others. And that explains why it's one of the most popular bikes in the world.
