Credit Pinarello as the first of the major bike makers to unveil a 2016 model spec’d with SRAM’s new eTap wireless electronic shifting system. The Italian company recently unveiled the new Dogma F8w on its website, boastfully asking “Are you ready to be the center of attention?”

“I’ve been trying the new SRAM RED eTap on my Dogma for a long time and I’m really impressed by the performance of this product,” said the man himself, Fausto Pinarello. “I am sure that it will be perfect on our bikes.”

As we outlined earlier this year, eTap shifts towards the smaller sprocket with the right lever and towards the bigger one with the left lever. The front derailleur is controlled by pressing both levers.

Other spec highlights include Zipp 303 Firecrest carbon clincher wheels and Most Tiger Aero 3K stem and handlebar.
