Team Sky and bike manufacturer Pinarello have extended their partnership through 2020. The Italian bicycle maker has been with the team since its inception in 2010.
The new Pinarello Dogma K8 is an evolution of the K8-S from last year. There is no elastomer rear shock on this model.
“We are partners of the best team the cycling world has ever experienced, in terms of organisation, professionalism and results,” said Fausto Pinarello, company president.
“We have been working closely with Fausto and his team since our World Tour debut in 2010, and together we have won three Tour de France yellow jerseys as well as 656 other podium places across the world. Their love of our great sport, their attention to detail and continuous search for innovation is a perfect fit with our team,” said Team Sky principal Dave Brailsford.
Over the length of their partnership the team has helped develop nine bike models.
“Having ridden Pinarello bikes since joining Team Sky, the greatest rides and best wins of my career have been on a Pinarello,” said Sky’s Chris Froome. “The bikes are the embodiment of Pinarello’s long heritage in the sport and their unique understanding of racing.”
