Mikel Landa's Tour de France Pinarello Bolide

Integrated bars and stem with Di2 and grip tape

Chris Froome has taken one of the strongest teams to the 2016 Tour de France in search of a third victory. Mikel Landa, Team Sky's leader for the Giro d'Italia earlier this year, was forced to abandon his own attempt at a grand tour victory due to illness. However, with an opportunity to prove his worth at the Tour, the Spaniard has been riding in support of Froome.

Riding Pinarello Dogma F8s for the majority of the stages, Team Sky riders used the new Pinarello Bolide time trial bike in Friday's 37km race against the clock, where Landa finished 54th and Froome finished second.

The new Bolide is 350g lighter than its predecessor. It also features an improved aerodynamic profile with which it already has two world time trials to its name. Both brakes are complete with aero guards to reduce drag, whilst the newly designed down tube has relocated the bottle cage to smooth the airflow even further.

Fully integrated bars and stem come complete with Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 shifting, a low and out-front computer mount and grip tape instead of the usual bar tape to further save weight. PRO provide the rear disc and tri-spoke front wheel, which are completed with Continental tubulars.
