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.
“We’ve been working in partnership with Pinarello on this new model for a while now and so the whole team is really excited about the new DOGMA F10.” Sir Dave Brailsford
“DOGMA F10 is the latest in a long line of cutting-edge and forward-thinking bikes from Pinarello, exemplifying the wonderful relationship we’ve enjoyed with them since the team’s inception. We were delighted to extend our partnership through to 2020 last summer and firmly believe that the DOGMA F10 is the best bike they’ve ever produced. Now we can’t wait to see it on the road in 2017.”Carsten Jeppesen
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 adjustment, 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.
“Our new DOGMA F10 is the eighth bike we are providing Team Sky in seven years, and as usual, the last one is always the best one…Good luck guys!” Fausto Pinarello
The partnership between Team Sky, which was extended for a further 4 years in 2016, has always been based on genuine collaboration, and confirmed once again by developing of the new DOGMA F10. After being extensively fatigue and crash tested, the bike was ridden for the first time by three time Tour de France winner Chris Froome, who gave Pinarello extremely positive and helpful feedback in the final stages of the DOGMA F10’s development.
“I’ve always valued the way Pinarello works so closely with the team and the riders. It’s a true partnership. 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 DOGMA F10. I’ve been working on the new DOGMA 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.”Chris Froome
