A new technological masterpiece for time trials called Graal has been released by Pinarello Bikes for 2012. With Campagnolo Super Record and Bora Ultimates, this stealth-black time trial race machine looks amazing. Its name is the Italian term for Grail.
In terms of aerodynamic test data, the sculpted down tube of the Graal frame may not add that much. However, it appears incredibly quick. Pinarello created the Graal using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) to minimize drag by assessing its results on individual tubes and sections and on the entire bike.
The 3D reliefs on the downtube of the 2012 Pinarello Graal Time Trial Race Bike is its most remarkable characteristic. The frame, which comes in five sizes, is constructed in a standard and Di2 specific version that has a concealed battery compartment.
