Thanks to Pinarello’s new partnership with Jaguar, asymmetry has a new power animal. When it came time to introduce the 8th version of the Pinarello Dogma, the company not only looked to make a lighter, more efficient bike but one that was more aerodynamic as well. To do that they would enlist the help of one of the UK’s legendary auto manufacturers – fitting with the likes of team Sky. The result is a new bike that at first glance looks a bit more subdued compared to the Dogma 65.1, but is actually more asymmetric than ever.

Mentioned features of the new “Bolide”:
-15% improvement in aerodynamics over the Graal due to:
-new airfoil tube section
-concave seat tube
-integrated handlebar with frame; electronic shifters are integrated into handlebars
-internal cable routing
-integration of all electronics into the frame; frame is also compatible with mechanical
The frame has also been increased in stiffness while losing weight (5% less than Graal) through use of new carbon layups, the unique to Pinarello Torayca 65HM1K, and BB86.
The frame is approved by the UCI.
