The Sweet Science should refer to time trialing. There is something exquisite about the rigors of going contre le montre, thanks to the subtle nature of inflicting the world is gonna end pain on oneself via a personal mind body tourniquet. It is masochism at its most graceful. Racing against the watch is where you employ every legal wind cheating, time saving trick you have up your skin tight sleeve. Go for the big gains first, and then move on to the increasingly marginal, all in an attempt to leave no effort wasted, no blood vessel unharmed. Pinarello's Graal Electronic is a striking example of both the big and the small, and since they're all here, you don't have to think about which ones you want. The frameset has them all. A time trial bike is about aerodynamics, but as this is a Pinarello, it also has to be about the ride. Maybe that's why Pinarello named it Graal, which translates Grail, as in Holy Grail. Maybe that's why it's the time trial ride of Team Sky, a squad that is fixated on racing the clock, and has had the success at both individual and team time trials to show the fixation is not mere dreaming. The Graal employs Toray 60HM1K carbon fiber cloth, the same 60 ton High Modulus stuff with the 1k carbon weave finish that you find on the Dogma 2. The frame also relies on the same EPS foam form molding technique that gives the Dogma its complex, wrinkle free final shape. Because this bike is primarily about time trialing, there is an aggressive 75. 5 degree seat angle and vertical seat post for better positioning over the bottom bracket and a slack head angle to make steering easy. The frame has been designed through Computational Fluid Dynamics CFD to slice through the wind. You can see this in every single frame tube. Start at the head tube. It's been shaped to have the air flow smoothly over it and past the top tube. The fork legs have been shaped for aerodynamics, from the leg shape to the integrated brake on the back of the fork crown. Those...
