Pinarello launch Dogma F10 for 2017 season
Lighter, stiffer and more aerodynamic than the outgoing DOGMA F8, the new DOGMA F10 will be used in 2017 season by the Team Sky and will spot a striking new design to celebrate Team Sky historical victories.
It follows in the footsteps of the DOGMA 60.1, DOGMA 2, DOGMA 65.1, DOGMA F8, DOGMA K8-S and DOGMA F8 XLight - all of which have powered Team Sky to major success, including all four of Team Sky’s Tour de France victories.
The DOGMA F10 frame weights 820 grams, 6.3% less than DOGMA F8 (875 grams) and it is 7% stiffer, while the geometry remains the same achieving all the major goals that Pinarello set out at the start of the development process: - weight + aerodynamics + stiffness and same Pinarello handling.
Drag has been reduced around the new concave down tube by 12.6% while modifications to the ForkFlap dropouts, in line with the work done on the Pinarello Bolide TT, have reduced drag in that area by up to 10%.
The junction of the new Shimano DuraAce Di2 will also be integrated into the down tube, making it easily accessible for adjust- ment, while all cables will be internally routed. DOGMA F10 is in any case compatible with all groupsets available on the market. The higher stiffness has come from further revolutionary developments in Pinarello’s asymmetric frame designs. Using the material Torayca T1100 1K, that ensures the highest tensile strength in the world, the frame is built to optimally counteract the asymmetric forces put through the bike, providing a stiffer and more balanced ride.
The partnership between Team Sky, which was extended for a further 4 years in 2016, has always been based on genuine col- laboration, and con rmed once again by developing of the new DOGMA F10. After being extensively fatigue and crash tested, the bike was ridden for the rst time by three time Tour de France winner Chris Froome, who gave Pinarello extremely positive and helpful feedback in the nal stages of the DOGMA F10’s development.
