The rider from the Isle of Man will be riding on a Cervélo S5 that will be kitted out with Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 (with junction box placed under the saddle), a 53-39 chainset, an SRM power meter and a KMC black and green chain.
However, the pictures you see here are Cav's spare bike, which still has Shimano Dura-Ace Di2, but uses Rotor's NoQ chainrings (53-38) and Rotor's new 2INpower power meter.
The sprint shifters that feature on this S5 are positioned very high on the inside of the bars - and actually upside down - and it seems easier to get to them from the hoods than from the drops.
Cav opts for a set of Enve wheels with very deep 70mm rims and DT Swiss 240 hubs. Enve also provides also a 12mm stem and its Garmin mount, the bars are Pro aluminium (with the logo covered with black tape) and there's a Tacx bottle cage.
Finally, Cav uses are Speedplay pedals, a Rotor chain guard and a Fizik Arione saddle.
