Philip Deignan returned to the WorldTour this season with Team Sky, after spending two years at ProContinental level. It has been a largely successful season for Deignan, despite missing his first race of the year due to a broken collarbone.

The Irish rider played a crucial role in the Giro d'Italia and Vuelta a España, coming close to victory with an aggressive performance at the Italian Grand Tour. Throughout the year, Deignan has been riding the Pinarello Dogma 65.1 Think 2, ridden by most of the team. The 5'9" rider uses a 54cm frame with team issue wheels, tyres and saddle. However there are a few personal touches to fit his frame.

"I ride quite narrow handlebars, because I have narrow shoulders so I've gone narrow this year, which I feel helps a little bit," he told Cyclingnews. "It's a really strong, ridged bike and really good on the descents. I feel quite a lot of confidence on the corners on this bike. It's got a lot of good characteristics, a good all round bike."
