The BOLIDE represents a technological 'Missile', a concentration of innovation and Italian craftsmanship, a new accomplishment for Pinarello

For over a year Pinarello Lab technicians and engineers, in close collaboration with Team Sky, have worked to improve the time trial bike which swept the 2012 Tour de France.

All manufacturers start with aerodynamics when creating a time-trial bike, but only a few go so far as to investigate the impact of the air flow on every single component. An extraordinary labor that allows the BOLIDE to reduce the aerodynamic impact by 15% compared to the GRAAL

The Pinarello BOLIDE has reduced the aerodynamic drag by 15% and the total weight by 5%, from the Graal

The major developments for the aerodynamics are:

The use of new airfoil tube sections, profiles are designed to ensure the lowest aerodynamic resistance in all wind conditions (frontal, lateral, etc.), as well as, in certain conditions, to generate a forward thrust

The use of a “concave back” on the seat tube, to allow a closer position of the rear wheel, significantly improving the air flow in that area

A tapered headset with 1 1/8 “and 1 ¼” bearings, which gives a perfect compromise between handling and aerodynamic performances

Asymmetric chainstays, now part of Pinarello’s DNA, opposes the asymmetric forces created by the power applied to the chain

Complete integration of the brakes, which “hides” them from the air flow, greatly reducing aerodynamic resistance

Internal cable routing that optimizes the interaction between the airfoils and the air flow, in addition to an aesthetic impact, innovative for a racing bike

Integrated handlebar, which gives a unique continuity with the frame and greatly reduce the resistance, compared to a traditional stem and bar

The integration of battery and electronic ontrollers, completely hidden inside the frame of the BOLIDE

The BOLIDE uses our new and unique Torayca 65HM1K carbon, which allows an overall weight reduction of the frame, with unequalled structural characteristics compared to the conventional fibers
