Cervélo Caledonia-5 Ultegra Di2 Disc review

The Cervélo Caledonia-5 bridges the gap between performance and endurance superbly

Cervélo Caledonia-5 Ultegra Di2 Disc
Cycling Weekly Verdict

If you boiled it down to its base principles, the Cervélo Caledonia-5 is an endurance bike. It has more upright geometry, it's more stable and it has wider tyres. But that doesn't make it slow, and when you ride it you also find it to be a multi-faceted performance bike and a truly do-it-all machine.
