BOLIDE: FROM GREEK ΒΟΛÎŠΣ BOLIS – MISSILE.
For over a year Pinarello Lab technicians and engineers, in close collaboration with Team Sky, have worked to improve the time trial bike which swept the 2012 Tour de France. And they have created a real BOLIDE. If it is true that all bike manufacturers start from aerodynamics to create a time-trial bike, only a few go so far as to investigate the impact of the air flow on every single component with the manic approach as it was for us on this project. An extraordinary labor that allows the BOLIDE to reduce by 15% the total aerodynamic impact, compared to the Graal.
Fast… Very Fast

TORAYCA 65HM1K WITH NANOALLOY TECHNOLOGY
Toray has solved this problem by inventing a system that prevents microfractures from spreading and avoids immediate collapse with the neat rupture of the fibres.
The extraordinary Torayca Nanoalloy™ technology consists of nanoparticles embedded in the carbon fibre mesh that explode on impact to prevent the fibre from breaking.
Our current 50HM1K fibre is already 29% stronger on impact than conventional fibres. The new 65HM1K with Nanoalloy™ technology adds another 23% to that advantage, making it 59%

This term indicates the construction methodology used when constructing our frames.
SOE is the acronym for SIMULATION OPTIMIZATION EVOLUTION whereby the initial tests in the design phase are done via technical software which simulates resistance, fatigue, stress, aerodynamic impact.
This ensures the realization of a prototype in an advanced stage and eventually leading to a final high-performance frame.
