Pinarello isn't known as a major triathlon brand (at least not in the US), but they launched a stunning new triathlon version of their Bolide aero bike at Kona 2018, dubbed the TR+. We saw Cameron Wurf flash by us on the Queen K aboard the new bike, who appeared to be on a mostly stock build including Swiss Side wheels.
We had a chance to take a very close look at the new machine at Sea Otter 2019, which is now available for purchase in the States.
Perhaps the biggest update with the new Bolide TR+ is in the braking department. Rim brakes are out - disc brakes are in. The front fork uses a molded-in shroud on the left leg to help shield the hydraulic caliper.
The rear brake does not have any shielding, but you'll find stealth routing of the hydraulic hose inside the left chainstay.
The drivetrain on the model we saw was all Shimano Di2.
The junction box is neatly integrated into the down tube.
That down tube also houses a storage container for food, spare tubes, or whatever you need to bring along.
The saddle appears to be a unique version of the new Selle Italia SLR Boost line, with some very slick-looking air vents underneath.
Pinarello is using their own aerobar on this bike.
The bar uses stackable risers to meet your desired pad height.
Swiss Side Hadron carbon clincher wheels handle the rolling duties. This aero-focused brand collaborates heavily with hub expert DT Swiss.
We'll keep an eye out for more from Pinarello, and we expect to see their pros aboard the Bolide TR+ in 2019.
