Egan Bernal's race-ready 2023 Pinarello Dogma F – Rouleur

All the details you need about the bike the Ineos Grenadiers rider is using for the 2023 season

It’s fair to say that the return of Egan Bernal to the forefront of the men’s professional peloton is a welcome sight to the world of cycling. After the Colombian rider’s horror crash in January 2022, which made many question if he would ever return to racing at all, the Ineos Grenadiers rider was getting stuck into the action at the Vuelta a San Juan Internacional in Argentina last week.

He did so aboard a stunning Pinarello Dogma F, painted in the unique orange, blue and red team colourway for the Ineos Grenadiers, with some subtle details on Bernal’s bike which are a nod to his glittering palmarès. Aside from the paintwork, Bernal’s bike is largely the same as the 2022 Ineos Grenadiers edition of the Pinarello Dogma F as the team sticks to Shimano as their componentry and wheels supplier.

The bike features a blue and red base colour, with diamond patterning going along the top tube into orange and pink which matches the Ineos Grenadiers 2023 team jersey. Bernal’s bike has one yellow and one pink stripe on above the usual Pinarello logo to show he has taken victory in both the Tour de France (2019) and the Giro d’Italia (2021) in his career. Bernal was also using a Fizik Antares saddle.

Despite Bernal being a rider suited to climbing, this is an aero-profiled bar and stem which helps route the hydraulic hoses fully internally into the frameset. Interestingly, the mechanics have not sealed Bernal’s handlebar tape with the usual black electrical tape, instead it looks like they have used glue to hold it in place.

Bernal has an out front mount to hold his Garmin. The Pinarello Dogma F features a distinctive kinked Onda fork which is said to aid both aerodynamics and bike handling.

As a Shimano sponsored team, all of the Ineos Grenadiers team bikes are fitted with the newest 12-speed Shimano Dura-Ace R9200 groupset, and it looks like Bernal has got his hands on a crankset with an integrated power meter – there was a shortage of this crankset last year. Bernal’s bike had a big 54t chainring which is quickly becoming the standard in today’s peloton. It looks like Bernal…
