    Looks to be just updated paint. I looked at the S5 tech paper and just shows Gen III (2019), no Gen IV (2021) S5. Unless they haven't updated the tech paper.

    Kookie I'm quite sure the "new" S5D is the same as the 2020 model exclusive of colours and maybe some equipment change as you likely know by now. A guess I've had six Cervelo's over the years the most relevent to this conversation is 3, S5's (presently riding the S5D) and 2 S3's. Having several bikes I think the S5D is a weapon especially from the mid 30 kph and up and as to ride quality it is on par with any normal road bike depending on the tire/rim package you run. I run Roval CLX 50's clinchers (1405 grams) with Conti 5000's 28 rear and 25 front. My fast/climbing set is tubular wheelset is (1285 grams) with a 44mm F, 55mm rear with Vittoria Speed 25mm. Love this bike for what it is. Built it from the frame over the winter of 2019. Weights in (with tubulars) to 14.4 lbs with garmin on board no bottles in the cages. Also run a Cannondale Carbon Topstone for gravel but also have a set of road wheels for the Cannondale. A very complaint ride compared to the Cervelo (same aero wheelset as Cervelo but with Conti 5000 28mm F and R) but no match for the Cervelo at speed on the flats. Exactly what you would think.
