Team Sky has released images of its 2016 Pinarello Dogma F8 team bike, complete with newly-reworked paintjob.

Sky's predominantly black and blue colourscheme is retained from this season, but with the addition of white stripes on the fork blades and seat tube.

Italian manufacturer Pinarello has provided bikes to the squad since Sky made its debut in 2010, so this will be the seventh year of the successful partnership.

In that time, Sky riders have piloted Pinarello bikes to over 200 wins, including three editions of the Tour de France with Bradley Wiggins (2012) and Chris Froome (2013 and 2015).

"Three Tour de France victories in six years and a huge number of wins and podiums - these results alone would be enough to be proud of this team," said Pinarello president Fausto Pinarello.

"But the union between Pinarello and Team Sky is much more. We are two innovation-oriented companies and we aim to achieve many more victories together."

The team's Pinarello Dogma F8s are its 'workhorse' bike, used in the vast majority of its competitive outings. They are equipped with Shimano Dura-Ace drivetrain and wheels, and PRO components.
