The Pinarello Dogma K8-S is a tour bike that marks the most recent collaboration between Jaguar and Pinarello, who previously worked together on the Tour de France bike in 2014. This bike has been engineered to provide cyclists in Pinarello-backed Team Sky a swift and smooth ride across rough terrain.

The Pinarello Dogma K8-S features a top-notch rear suspension system, which owes its efficacy to Jaguar's expertise in dealing with and neutralizing vibrations. This system allows for a 50% reduction in road vibration transmissions when compared to the bicycle's predecessor, the Dogma K. Despite this fancy new suspension system, the frame is still incredibly lightweight and weighs in at only 2 pounds.

The Pinarello Dogma K8-S goes to show the advantage of pooling together different areas of expertise when crafting a product -- in this case, a bicycle -- that has room for improvement when borrowing from similar yet different products such as cars.
