Taking many of its design cues, aerodynamic touches and frame technology from their range-topping Dogma, the Pinarello NYTRO RED Etap eRoad Bike has a 400 watt FAZUA EVATION motor and battery system tucked into the carbon frame which can provide four different levels of assistance up to 25kph; Breeze adds 125 watts, Flow 250 watts and Rocket deploys the full 400 watts for the steepest inclines, whilst Unassisted is for enjoying the downhills and saving the battery. Pinarello claim that even in Rocket mode the battery is good for a 1,400 metre ascent. The battery can even be removed completely and the bike ridden without the motor, making it over four kilograms lighter.
SRAM’s RED eTap 11-speed groupset is equally impressive, providing quickfire, fully wireless shifting coupled with powerful hydraulic braking for confidence in all weathers. The intuitive system uses one paddle per side to operate the gears so its always easy to hit the right lever, even when wearing gloves and with a 1,000km range and quick USB charging there is no reason to run out of juice. The Mavic Cosmic Pro Carbon wheels and Yksion Pro UST tyres can be run tubeless if so desired and at 28mm wide will provide a comfortable and sure-footed ride.
