The release of the Cervélo P4 might have been the most anticipated debut of any bike in the history of the sport. Following on the heels of the Cervélo P3, many athletes were on the edge of their seats waiting to see what Cervélo would come up with. The model hasn’t yet permeated transition areas like the P3 did and Cervélo has updated it with 25 design changes for 2011. Everything from the seat post to the downtube shape to the integrated water bottle has been examined and improved, making one of the fastest bikes in the world more user-friendly. Many of these improvements are easily retrofitted onto existing P4s. It comes equipped with Sram’s top-of-the-line Red group, along with Rotor’s 3D crank set and 3T’s new Aura carbon aerobar.
