When Team Jumbo-Visma decided it was time to race XCO, they went to Cervélo for the answer. The ZHT-5 marks a new era for Cervélo and the team, as they go racing together. Their engineering expertise has already been proven in cyclocross (R5-CX) and gravel racing (Áspero), and now they've upped the ante and designed a mountain bike worthy of the Cervélo name.
ZHT-5 is a Cervélo through and through: fast, efficient, and fun to ride. The 69-degree head tube angle, modern reach, and short chainstays combine to make a bike that’s stable at speed and nimble enough for pack racing. There’s room to manoeuvre in the cockpit, whether you’re darting inside on an uphill hairpin, or hanging off the back to make time on the descent.
Cervélo's mantra is to make riders faster. And doing that means creating bikes that turn power into forward motion as efficiently as possible. Nothing does this more effectively in dirt than a hardtail. But power is nothing without control, so we focused on making a rapid cross-country race bike that still handles confidently in technical sections, feeding the desire to ride faster.
Weighing in at just 907g (size Medium), ZHT-5 is a featherweight fighter with the punchy turn of pace that only a hardtail can deliver. Decades of making frames built for the strongest sprinters in the world has fed into a super stiff mountain bike design that propels you to the front without compromising weight or ride quality.
If you’ve not ridden a hardtail for a while, you’ll be surprised at how the ZHT-5’s 69-degree head tube angle, 457mm reach (size L), and 430mm chainstays feel progressive and refreshingly modern. If you’ve ridden them all your life, you’ll be baffled at how Cervélo have managed to eke out yet more performance from such a clean and simple design. The ZHT-5’s geometry puts you in the driving seat to carve up all the tight hairpins and features that litter the ups and downs of today’s XC trails.
Cervelo know from winning cyclo-cross World Champs that when the going gets gritty, threaded bottom brackets are the best way to go. ZHT-5 adopts the BSA threaded standard to meet the strength, stiffness, durability and serviceability needs of racers and race mechanics alike. It also makes it the ideal winter training companion.
There are many contributing factors when it comes to picking the right size of bike. Whilst height provides perhaps the best indication of bike size it's not uncommon to size up, or size down depending rider flexibility, body shape, riding style and desired body position. Here at Billy Bilsland Cycles we understand the importance of bicycle fit, sizing and comfort in order to not only maximise enjoyment, but help significantly enhance performance and accomplish goals. Check the recommended height ranges below for a rough guideline, and if you have any queries don't hesitate to get in touch. For more information on our in depth bicycling fitting service click here.

If you require expedited/next day shipping, give us a call on 0141 552 0841 or drop us an email on firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll do our best to accommodate.
Every bike we sell is fully assembled and tested for safety by our trained mechanics. We then partly disassemble the bike and carefully re-pack to prepare for shipping.
Depending on the model, upon receipt you may be required to straighten and tighten the handlebars, reattach front wheel and attach the pedals. Please ensure that the pedals are greased and fitted correctly - the pedals will be marked L and R and have to be fitted to the left and right cranks respectively. Pedal do not come with every bike and need to be bough separately, especially on more high-end models. Please check when you are ordering.
There is a guide in the box telling you which tools you will need and the steps to follow. This will require some degree of mechanical skill to put together and can need some minor adjustments. The less confident you are in this field the more we'd recommend having it checked over by a professional mechanic.
We offer a standard 48Hr Service for courier shipping via Royal Mail for accessories, and APC Next Day for bike deliveries.
