With the original Dogma reaching the top of the asymmetrical design pedestal, Pinarello's engineers were still possessed to relentlessly press on towards race-tuned perfection. In fact, it seems that Pinarello made this its destiny, tirelessly refining what many already called perfect. This dedicated team of frame designers went at it again, working with professional cycling teams around the world to rewrite those asymmetric conventions, developing perhaps the pinnacle of bicycle frame innovation with the new Dogma 65. 1 Think 2. Rather than digging even deeper, and risk damaging the cornerstone of Pinarello engineering in its quest to create the next Dogma successor, the Italian engineers reached out to their Japanese carbon fiber suppliers at Torayca and flatly challenged the composite giant to improve upon its flagship 60HM1K cloth. The end result The Dogma 65. 1 Think2, hewn from Torayca's all-new 65-ton 65HM1K Nano-alloy Carbon Fiber -- a carbon that's more rigid and reactive than anything that Pinarello has ever used on a bike frame. A full 65-tons per square centimeter, to be exact. The increased rigidity allows Pinarello to use less carbon fiber in key areas, thereby lowering the weight of the Dogma and dispelling myths that the Dogma is not a bike for climbers. When you think of the 65. 1 Think2, you may think of Britain's Team Sky, perhaps because this bike has been ridden by a Sky rider to Yellow in France for two consecutive years. This year, Chris Froome took top Tour honors, but his wasn't the only Think2 to end up on the podium. Movistar's Nairo Quintana earned second place, the White Jersey, and the Climber's Jersey with this bike. Even with the new cloth, the Dogma 65. 1 Think2 follows in the same mold and distinct identity of the Dogma 2, which, of course, retained much of the asymmetrical shaping of its predecessor. And while the bloodlines of the Dogma are very much intact, Pinarello continues to push the envelope to further enhan...
