Tadej Pogacar is riding Colnago’s latest race bike, the V4Rs at the 2023 Tour de France. Unlike other bike brands that have aero and lightweight bikes, Colnago only has one model.

In 2023, UAE Team Emirates swapped sponsors from Campagnolo to Shimano and ENVE. Tadej Pogacar will ride the 12-speed Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 groupset instead of the Campagnolo Super Record EPS, and ENVE instead of Campagnolo wheels.

Here are some notable observations of Tadej Pogacar’s bike.

  • Continental GP5000s TT TR instead of the regular GP5000s TR tires
  • One-piece ENVE cockpit, which is yet to be released
  • Carbon-Ti X-Rotors
  • Carbon-Ti X-CarboRing EVO, 54/42T chainring
  • Darimo T1 carbon seatpost
  • Narrow handlebars (36cm)
