Cyclingnews.com profiled his bike here. Global Cycling Network did the same in a video below.

Cavendish is using Continental tires, Fizik Arione saddle, Enve wheels, a Rotor crank, and Speedplay pedals.

Cervelo has different models designed for your specific cycling needs. The S series are the aero road bikes, like Cavendish rides. The C5 is the endurance road bike, the R series is the classic road bike, and the P series is the quintessential time trial and triathlon bike.

Here’s what Cervelo says about their bikes:

Our approach can be seen not just in the performance of the finished product, but in the technologies our engineers create in order to achieve that performance. We call these technologies Core Design Features, and a select combination of them goes into every Cervélo we engineer. These features are designed to provide improvements in aerodynamics, weight, stiffness, ride quality and usability, allowing us to deliver bikes that help you go faster and farther with less effort.
