Despite the fact that the frame's design and layup were developed in partnership with Jaguar, Pinarello's Limited Edition RHINO Dogma F8 Road Frameset's story hinges on a different animal: the rhino. The rhino graphics on this frame serve as publicity for United for Wildlife, an anti poaching organization that aims to protect the wildlife populating Froome's home continent of Africa, and we applaud Froome's decision to use the platform of his latest Tour win as an opportunity to perform a bit of charitable activism. We've opted to stock the predominantly black paint scheme he rode during the middle of the Tour, when he was actually doing the work to win the race, rather than the all yellow affair he rode on the celebratory processional up the Champs Elysees after he'd already effectively won. Other than the limited edition paint scheme, this is the same frameset the monolithic Team Sky rides daily. It improves on Pinarello's previous flagship bike, the 65. 1, by mating its Tour winning geometry with material upgrades and fresh tube shapes for a claimed 47% improvement in aerodynamics, a 16% more balanced feel, and a 12% increase in rigidity all while shedding a claimed 120g. The Dogma F8's carbon fiber is provided by another proven industry partner, the venerable carbon geniuses at Toray, whose Japanese factory produces arguably the most consistent, highest quality, and safest carbon in the world. The F8 is made from an all new Toray masterpiece: T1100 1K Dream Carbon with Nano alloy technology. While the name is certainly impressive, its application is even more so. T1100 is the current go to outer skin for many modern aircrafts, and its stiffness to weight ratio is as remarkable as Froome's attack up the Col de Soudet on the tenth stage an effort all the more impressive when you consider the virtually flat stage that led up to the climb. The new Dogma F8 also mimics Froome's own weight loss between Barloworld and Sky, dropping 80 claimed grams compared to...
