Check out Team Ineos Grenadier's Pinarello Dogma F12 for the Tour de France

A special colourway has been released to mark the team's name change for the Tour de France

Team Ineos have unveiled the new Ineos Grenadier Pinarello Dogma F12 bikes they will race at the Tour de France.

The British WorldTour team have changed names for the Tour de France in order to promote the new 4x4 Ineos Grenadier utility vehicle launched by main sponsor Ineos and billionaire owner Jim Ratcliffe.

In line with this name change has come a new kit (that is markedly similar to the Alpecin-Fenix jersey, by the way), new team colours of navy and red, and now matching colour schemes for the bikes which you will also be able to buy. 

As per usual, Egan Bernal, Richard Carapaz and the rest of the 'Ineos Grenadiers' will be racing on Pinarello's Dogma F12 race bike and the Dogma F12 X-Light climbing bike. However, rather than the red to black fade we have become accustomed to, these bikes will be navy and red, a look that we quite like.

Team Ineos are one of the few teams to remain on rim brake bikes and will continue to do so for the 2020 Tour. The British team will use Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 groupsets and Pinarello's in-house Most brand for handlebars and stems. 

Shimano will also supply the Ineos Grenadiers with its Dura-Ace wheels for the majority of the race however, we do expect the team to use wheels from German specialists Lightweight in the high mountains like they did at last year's Tour.

Consumers will be able to buy the new colourway of the Dogma F12 and F12 X-Light from November. Unlike the professional team, the average rider will also have the ability to buy both bikes in disc brake iterations too. 

Notably, Pinarello will not be upping the price of this special edition colourway with punters set to pay the same £10,000 fee for a complete Dogma F12 and £6,000 for Dogma F12 X-Light frameset.
