The Cervélo P3 Ultegra Di2 8050 is one of the fastest and most accessible triathlon bikes on today’s market. Riders flock to Cervélo for their triathlon needs. It has been the most used brand at Kona for 14 consecutive years. An incredibly aerodynamic design with a less aggressive seat position than some of the top aero road bikes makes it both blazing fast and easier for triathletes to ride. For triathletes, especially those competing in Ironman events, comfort is imperative. The geometry of the Cervélo P3 Ultegra Di2 8050 will give you that great combination of aerodynamics and comfort to tackle long rides on the road.
The Cervélo P3 carbon frame is built to cut through the wind and help you get your fastest time possible. Shielding seatstays and an extended seat tube with a trailing edge improves aerodynamics. A dropped down tube helps make the front wheel and frame into a singular aerodynamic shape. The P3 frame even uses future proof cable management which allows your bike to be compatible with all derailleur and brake systems. Internal cable routing of the Di2 system keeps those cables out of your way and out of the wind to keep you moving at top speeds.
In grueling triathlons such as Ironman events, athletes can be on their bike for about five hours without a break. Journeys like this make storage and comfort a vital component of the design of this bike. Bottle carriers are integrated into the aerodynamic design and accessory mounts allow you to carry anything you may need over a long ride. These long distances mean that an athlete can only perform to their very best if their bike is comfortable. A less aggressive geometry and seat angle make this a comfortable ride for such a stiff and quick bike.
The Cervélo P3 has been called “the new baseline” when it comes to aero bikes due to its combination of speed and its accessibility to a large range of riders. With a wide range of fits to suit any sized rider and easy packing and storage for travel, the Cervélo P3 will not inconvenience you as a tradeoff for its speed.
There is a reason that Cervélo’s P3 Ultegra Di2 8050 is one of the most popular bikes in the world among triathletes. With this bike, you will get the speed of a blazing time trial bike and the comfort and ease of use needed in a triathlon bike. You obviously need an aerodynamic and fast bike for your triathlon leg or time trial and you will get that with the aerodynamic, stiff, and integrated frame of the Cervélo P3 Ultegra Di2 8050. Unlike most other bikes of its speed, that does not come with a tradeoff of comfort and usability.

The Colnago A1-R shows how Colnago can adapt their classic ride to an aluminum frame. This is the successor to the popular Strada, and it is a big step up. The shaping has become both more extensive and more sophisticated thanks to hydroforming, and this results in a better ride at a lighter weight.
Colnago expects that anyone looking at their bikes is looking for high performance. So they start with the cues and designs that have done racers so well at the zenith of competition. Giuseppe Saronni, Toni Rominger, Andrea Tafi, Fabio Aru have all helped the master learn new tricks, helped him elevate his game. Often, it goes into cutting-edge bike design. Here, it’s finding a way to translate that race handling for newer riders who aren’t necessarily as flexible or nimble on two wheels. The ride is classic, but it’s adjusted for the needs of people who don’t have tens of thousands of miles in their legs.
As this bike proves, aluminum is an excellent material for frame-building. The hydroforming allows for a tuning of characteristics once thought unfathomable. Both the front of the top and down tubes flare out to put more material on the head tube and increase torsional rigidity. The downtube itself is extensively shaped for more lateral rigidity at the bottom bracket—which works quite nicely with the wide BB86 bottom bracket shell. The top tube is flattened to favor vertical compliance. The stays and the seat tube are tapered.
The fork is a carbon-aluminum hybrid to both increase performance and reduce price. The straight legs have a dramatic taper to provide both an excellent ride and stiff legs for precise handling.
The seatpost is round and has a diameter, a classic size that marries light weight to compliance.
With all these features, Colnago tweaked their traditional road racing geometry to work better with both aluminum tubing and newer riders. Bottom bracket drop and stay length is roughly the same as you’ll find on their top-flight bikes. The A1-R frames have a taller head tube and longer front-center measurement so you don’t have to get as low and have more stable steering.
Colnago keeps some things with the A1-R you can find in those pricier bikes. The tapered 1 1/8” to 1 ¼” steerer tube helps with steering. Internal cable routing looks clean and keeps things neat. The front derailleur hanger makes adjustment easy. The rear derailleur hanger is replaceable. There is enough room for 25mm tires, which is how the complete bikes come dressed.
