Team Sky to Ride the new Pinarello Dogma F10 at the Tour Down Under
The focus of the F10 was to maintain the “all-around” characteristics, stiff and light, with an excellent aerodynamic balance and keeping the unique “Pinarello feeling”
Increased stiffness, reduced drag of both the bike and rider and reduced the overall weight.
Team Sky will ride the new Dogma F10 starting at the 2017 Tour Down Under. They team will still have the K8 and K8-S available for Paris Roubaix and other cobble races
Pinarello has supported Team Sky since its foundation in 2009, providing the team with the best bikes in the business. This collaboration allowed them to test bikes in the most important races across the world and to gather precious feedback to further improve them. During these years, they have developed 8 road bikes and 3 time trial bikes, which have been successfully used by the team to win its races. The collaboration is now extended, at least, up to 2020, and they are already working on new amazing projects.
The NEW Dogma F10 has the same geometry as the Dogma F8, however it has improved areodynamics including a Concave Down Tube – starting around the top of the water bottle area the Flat Back becomes concave. The drag was reduced by 12.6% from the down tube, down tube water bottle, seat tube water bottle and all the way through the seat tube.
The Fork Flap – First studied and added to the Bolide HR using a different style of bolt on axles. This was modified when added to the Bolide TT to adjust for QR skewers. The result was a 10% drag reduction for the Bolide TT fork.
Finally, it was added to the Dogma F10 fork drop outs to help reduce the drag on a road bike frame.
“I’ve always valued the way Pinarello work so closely with the team and the riders. It’s a true partnership,” said Froome. “They make sure they are providing us with the best possible equipment for all types of racing. They are always seeking to go one better and that’s what they’ve done with the F10. “I’ve been working on the new F10 with Pinarello for a long time now and so I’m really looking forward to starting my season on it. It’s a natural born winner.”

F10 Asymmetry + Weight
Same concept used since 2009. Larger tubes on the right side of the frame allowed them to counteract the forces created by the drive train. This tubing change creates a stiffer frame while using less material on the left side of the frame, reducing the weight. The Dogma F8 used a seat tube that was moved over to the right side of center. The Dogma F10 takes it a bit more to the right, increasing stiffness, as well as allowing thinner tubing, reducing the weight. The seat tube is also more conical from top to bottom compared to the Dogma F8. Overall stiffness has increased 7% while weight is reduced 6.3%
The new F10 has Internal cable routing and Think 2 technology with a Twin Force Seat Clamp. It includes E-Link – a new junction area on the back side of the down tube that allows access to the inside of the frame. Designed primarily for the new Dura Ace Di2 (EW-RS910).
The F10 comes in 6 different model colours which include; 165 Sideral White, 166 Red Magma, 167 Black Lava, 168 Sulfur Yellow,169 Asteroid Red and the 170 Black on Black.
December – 167 Black Lava (Black/Red) frames

Cicli Pinarello SpA is one of the most famous and winning bike manufacturer in the world. Founded in Treviso (Italy) in 1952 by Giovanni (Nani) Pinarello, it produces high
end racing bikes. This name, Pinarello, recalls legendary victories of the greatest cyclists of all times: since 1975, the first victory in Giro d’Italia with Fausto Bertoglio, Pinarello has won all the most important races in the world, including Olympics, World Championships and Tour de France.
Just in the recent past, they have celebrated wins for:
Elia Viviani - gold medal in Omnium, Rio 2016 Olympics
Chris Froome - winner of Tour de France 2013·2015·2016
Wout Poels - winner of Liege-Bastogne-Liege 2016
Vasil Kiryienka - Time Trial World Champion in Richmond 2015
Sir Bradley Wiggins - Hour Record holder in London 2015 and
Time Trial World Champion in Ponferrada 2014
