This Sunday, during Ronde outpost Vlaanderen, Team Sky will be aboard a new Pinarello Dogma, a K8-S, that group personality Bradley Wiggins says is “game-changing,” interjection to a back suspension.

In partnership with a team’s automobile sponsor, Jaguar, Pinarello grown a new indication with flat, stretchable sequence stays to concede a CO fiber support to flex and compress the tiny startle located on a chair stays. It is pronounced to have 10mm of transport with a elastomer-based shock. Pinarello claims a support will import 990 grams. The Dogma F8 weighs 860g.

Pinarello claims a new support reduces vibration by 50 percent, nonetheless a misleading how, exactly, that data was measured.

However, for his part, Wiggins pronounced a support creates a conspicuous difference. “The Pinarello Dogma K8-S looks as good as a DOGMA F8, and from a impulse we get on it, we comprehend a disproportion true away, generally on a cobbles.

“I’ve never ridden anything like it on cobbles before, that is a many impassioned turf we can float a bike on. The approach it feels, a aerodynamics, stiffness, and softened flex in a rear, is game-changing for cycling.”

In March, Wiggins and Christian Knees rode the prolonged and unchanging cobble sectors in the final 130km of a Paris-Roubaix route, where analogous tests were undertaken with a Dogma K frame.

Wiggins will float his final competition in Team Sky’s colors on Apr 12 in Paris-Roubaix, presumably aboard this new bike.
