Some pics were leaked onto the internet over the weekend, now the full launch is on cyclingnews:

It is a UCI legal frame, with add-ons ond another fork to to optimize it for Tri. Bike can also use special hydraulic brakes.

Another top class engineering effort by Cervelo, from the look of it, it looks set to continue Cervelo's strong position in the Tri market.

 

I'm not crazy about the paint, but the the bike looks fantastic :thumbup:

Tri version looks super smooth .

 

Non-UCI leagal tri-version:

Yeah, it is also added to the 'Black Bikes Only' thread.

 

Garmin-Barracuda will be the only team using this monster beauty thing.

I don't think the brakes look nice without the aero cover. I would rather have standard brakes on a UCI version. The hydraulic brakes is supposed to be lighter, though.
