Team Sky have unveiled the new Pinarello Dogma F10 bike on which Chris Froome will bid for a fourth Tour de France victory this summer. The Dogma F10, which is the eighth Pinarello bike to be used by Team Sky is, as you’d expect, said to be lighter, stiffer and more aerodynamic than the current Dogma F8.
Sir Bradley Wiggins rode the Pinarello Dogma 2 to victory at the 2012 Tour de France, swapping to the Dogma 65.1 Think 2 for the final stage. Froome then rode the same bike to the title in 2013, before the Dogma F8 – a collaboration with then-Sky sponsors Jaguar – was launched the following year.
Froome’s two victories since, in 2015 and 2016, have been aboard the Dogma F8 but Team Sky are now set to phase in the Dogma F10 over the 2017 campaign. Whether we’ll see it at the season-opening Tour Down Under later this month remains to be seen.
