Pro bike: Sir Bradley Wiggins’ hour record Pinarello Bolide HR

Wiggo's one-off, record breaking bike

The UCI Hour Record is perhaps the purest discipline in cycling: man and machine against the clock. The man, Sir Bradley Wiggins, needs no introduction, and this the machine the 35-year-old role to smash the record.

Pinarello and Jaguar combined to provide Wiggins with this, the Pinarello Bolide HR – an adapted version of the Italian firm’s Bolide TT bike, on which Wiggins won the world time trial title in Ponferrada last year.

Jaguar offered its aerodynamic expertise for the project, resulting in a claimed 7.5 per cent aero improvement over the roadworthy Bolide, thanks largely to a new one-piece handlebar, and updated fork design.
