Like a fine Italian Wine, our bikes are a delight to ride. We have partnered with the best brands in the industry: Pinarello. With 11 Tour de France Wins, the results speak for themselves. If they are good enough to win the most prestigious race on earth, they are good enough for us.
The Pinarello GAN
The GAN enjoys the benefit of Pinarello sweating all the details of their WorldTour F8. The bike takes advantage of the aero FlatBack shaping you’ll find on that ride, but adjusts the geometry so it puts those who don’t ride 30,000km a year in a million-dollar position. The head tube is a bit longer, the reach is a bit shorter, but the seat angle, and the resulting position is comfortable, powerful, and fast. Aero bikes have a reputation for being uncomfortable. Pinarello built in comfort with the Onda wave in the fork, and the lower, shorter seat stays. Vertical flex is there and you’ll be thankful. But when you start cranking out of the saddle, the bike will be there for you as well. Pinarello uses an aero seat post and internal cable runs so that every little advantage can be eked out.
Pinarello builds this bike with Shimano Ultegra 6800 mechanical shifting. 6800 is so close to Dura-Ace 9000 it’s hard to tell the difference. From the ergonomic carbon levers, to the lightning fast engagement, the shifting is identical. Gearing is set up for all conditions, a 52/36 up front and 11-28 eleven-speed in back. You’ll never be over- or under-geared. And the redesigned brake caliper arms not only fit wider rims and tires better, but offer better modulation.
The Kask Protone
While the cyclists at Team Sky are more renowned for their legs than their brains, the latter do occasionally play a significant role in cycling. Case in point is Stannard’s surgical dismantling of an apparently invincible Ettix-Quickstep at Omloop. Given that cycling is often equal parts cunning and strength, the pros at Sky rely on Kask’s Protone Helmet to keep their strategic organ in top shape so it can effectively direct their energies when frantic finales send all the blood rushing to the legs.
