Pinarello Dogma F10 Disk Road Frameset - 2018 Pinarello Dogma F10 Disk Road Frameset - 2018
It takes something awfully special to improve upon Pinarello's F10. The ride quality, weight, and looks are beyond reproach and put the bike in a class of its own. We have however, become smitten since riding disc brakes on the road. The performance advantage in all-conditions cannot be argued, but we don't want to lose any of the wonderful ride feel or add an anchor to our lightweight steed. Since the Dogma F10 Disk Frameset is, well, still an F10, Pinarello ensures that we don't have to. On the surface, it might appear that Pinarello simply adapted disc brake mounts to the existing F10 frame. This couldn't be further from the truth, since adding the mounts and reinforcing those areas would negatively effect the ride quality and take on a weight penalty. Pinarello has experience transforming their previous superbike, the F8, from rim to disc, so the exercise wasn't too foreign to them. The F10 was already one of--if not the--favorite all-around road bike here at Competitive Cyclist, and the addition of disc brakes takes it over the top. Pinarello, already experts in asymmetric carbon layup design in drivetrain applications, now applies this technique into handling disc braking loads. This results in creating areas of the frame that are durable and completely apt at handling the disc brake stresses that they'll see without overbuilding the entire frame, adding unnecessary weight, or making the ride overly harsh. Though the frame is significantly redesigned, Pinarello continues the use of an Italian threaded bottom bracket shell, which is easier to install, maintain, and keep creak-free than the PressFit standard. The Onda fork is also redesigned to meet the demands of disc brakes. Thru-axles are used to secure the wheel to the dropouts, increasing the stiffness and allowing for out-of-the saddle climbing efforts and sprinting with nary a brake rub. Pinarello adds fork flaps, essentially mini fairings, to the trailing edge of the dropouts to further increasing st...

Pinarello Dogma F10 Dura-Ace Di2 Complete Road Bike - 2017 Pinarello Dogma F10 Dura-Ace Di2 Complete Road Bike - 2017
The launch of Pinarello's new Dogma F10 sends Team Sky's venerable F8 to the bench and sets an even lighter and stiffer bar for our road machine aspirations. While those baby-blue striped power to weight ratios may not be in the cards for us mere mortals, international governing bodies' commercial availability rules mean that prized ride quality and precise Shimano electronic shifting is available to everyone with the 2017 Dogma F10 Dura-Ace Di2 Complete Road Bike. Though the frame angles remain unchanged between model generations, the classic Dogma asymmetry returns in the F10 with a few subtle alterations that produce disproportionate changes. Asymmetry has been a staple tool in Pinarello's arsenal since 2009, and it's a surprisingly simple solution to one of cycling's most essential conundrums. Since the drivetrain is located on one side of the bike, the load created by pedaling isn't uniform across the frameset's left and right hemispheres. The drive side sees the majority of power transfer duties, so by building it up, Pinarello is able to maintain drive stiffness while cutting material on the non-drive side, so lost grams don't translate to lost watts. Compared to the F8, the F10's asymmetry is technically more pronounced on the top tube, which cheats a bit more to the right, and the seat junction, which sees a slight tweak. Pinarello's tests indicate that these minor adjustments make the frame stiffer and lighter. If they're not solely responsible for the 7% and 6. 3% improvements listed above, they're certainly key contributors. Despite those remarkable claims, the changes are hard to detect with the naked eye (hence "technically" above), and the frame's asymmetry is much more apparent in places like the seat stay/seat tube junction. The F10's enhanced asymmetry give it one of the most immediately recognizable silhouettes in the industry, but those lines aren't just artistry; they're inspired by the Dogma F10's Bolide TT DNA, which surfaces both in its...

Pinarello Dogma F10 Road Frameset - 2018 Pinarello Dogma F10 Road Frameset - 2018
You're a venerable Italian frame builder. Your flagship race machine (the Dogma F8) has been ridden to the top of the world's most prestigious podium. Twice. The bike it replaced (the Dogma 65. 1) was earlier ridden to the same podium step. Also twice. What's your response' If you're Pinarello, it's to revisit those designs, replace them with the Dogma F10 Road Frameset, and further push the limit on a bike that has already defined the limit of what a racing bike can do. Since rolling it out in 2017, the Dogma F10 has already added two more grand tours to Pinarello's palmares. Given Team Sky's embarrassment of riches, talent-wise, we suspect that it'll add a few more before it's retired. In light of the success that it's already enjoyed, we're not surprised to see the F10 return for an encore with little change. The only significant difference is purely aesthetic, with Pinarello dabbling in some graphical flair to set the model years apart. As with its predecessor, the latest Dogma F10's geometry and material composition are similar to the F8, but the F10 features a few subtle tweaks that result in some claims that, given the impressive gains the F8 made over the Dogma 65. 1, are almost comically impressive: 7% more stiffness and 6. 3% less weight. We can only assume that, in the next few years, those numbers will add up to another trip (or two) to the top step of that podium. Since this is the new flagship model of one of the industry's most storied bike brands and one of the sport's most dominant teams, the Dogma F10 warrants healthy consideration. We'll cover the details at length below, but any bike is ultimately defined by its ride, so it makes sense to start there. Featherweight frames are often, well, feathery, but the F10 meets pedal strokes with buoyant solidity. When spinning up out of corners, punching it on Ardennes-esque walls, or turning the screws ever tighter on climbs, the F10's bottom bracket exhibits the stability--but definitely not the weig...

Pinarello Dogma F8 Disc Road Frameset - 2017 Pinarello Dogma F8 Disc Road Frameset - 2017
For those of us not chasing WorldTour dreams and bound by fussing international governing body rules, the unrivaled stopping power and modulation of disc brakes make them the wave of the future. Given Pinarello's dedication to design and innovation, it's no surprise that it created the 2017 Dogma F8 Disc Road Frameset, a disc-compatible version of its venerable Dogma F8 dream bike. The disc version incorporates some changes, including a tweak to the internal lay-up and reinforcement to the brake mounts, all of which are necessary in order to account for the extra load of disc braking forces. These tweaks do come with a slight weight gain, but Pinarello assures us that it's hardly more significant than the difference in weight between paint schemes. Disc brake compatibility excluded, this is the same frameset Pinarello designed in cahoots with Jaguar. While we aren't privy to the details of this partnership, it certainly bore fruit. The Dogma F8 improves on Pinarello's previous flagship bike, the 65. 1, by mating its Tour-winning geometry with material upgrades and fresh tube shapes for a claimed 47% improvement in aerodynamics, a 16% more balanced feel, a 12% increase in rigidity -- all while losing a claimed 120 grams of weight. The Dogma F8's carbon fiber is provided by another proven industry partner, the venerable carbon geniuses at Toray, whose Japanese factory produces arguably the most consistent, highest quality, and safest carbon in the world. The F8 is made from an all-new Toray masterpiece: T1100 1K Dream Carbon with Nano-alloy technology. While the name is certainly impressive, its application is even more so. T1100 is the current go-to outer skin for many modern aircrafts, and its stiffness-to-weight ratio is nothing short of stunning. Compared to a 54cm Dogma 65. 1 -- which was built with Toray's 65HM1K -- the F8's T1100K construction weighs nearly 80 grams less while retaining the same structural characteristics. The savvy engineers at Pinarello and..

Pinarello Dogma F8 Road Frameset - 2017 Pinarello Dogma F8 Road Frameset - 2017
While the overall excitement of this year's Tour is up for debate, nobody can argue with the moments of suspense and tactical genius deployed by Team Sky atop the 2017 Pinarello Dogma F8 Road Frameset. From screaming descents to last-minute breakaway time trials to mountaintop epics, this frame delivers speed and agility worthy of the best in the world. Borne from Pinarello's collaboration with Team Sky and Jaguar, the Dogma F8 comes with high-reaching claims of a 47% increase in aerodynamic efficiency and 12% more rigidity, as well as weighing in 120 less than its venerable predecessor, the Dogma 65. 1. Its Onda 8 fork takes inspiration from the TT-specific Bolide with a convex stance that reduces the size of the air's wake as it flows over the fork blades for a smooth, fast ride. The entirety of the Dogma F8 is constructed from carbon fiber sourced from Toray, long Pinarello's favored carbon manufacturer and known for producing some of the most consistent, highest quality, and safest carbon in the world. The fibers are called Torayca T1100 1K Dream Carbon, and feature nano-alloy technology embedded within them to yield exceptional strength at equally impressive low weights. The savvy engineers at Pinarello and Jaguar didn't waste any of these properties, laying-up the carbon to precisely maximize the benefits of these penalty-free weight savings. The partnership's engineering expertise also comes into play through the use of CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics). Using Pinarello's existing 65. 1 Dogma as a baseline, the engineers plotted 70 frame configurations and 300 CFD analysis cycles to realize the most versatile aerodynamic tube shape, aptly dubbe FlatBack. A cross-sectional view reveals an ovalized face paired with an abruptly truncated back half, which manages the detachment of turbulent lamina at multiple yaw angles to reduce the drag effect of dead air in the tubes' wake. As important as weight and aerodynamics have become in the conversation around t...

Pinarello Dogma K8 Road Frameset - 2017 Pinarello Dogma K8 Road Frameset - 2017
Pinarello has a rich history in the cycling world, and, over the years, has worked with the sport's best riders. This connection to the highest level of the sport has garnered valuable feedback for the brand and pushes it to construct framesets to cope with unique courses and conditions. The Dogma K8 Road Frameset is Pinarello's answer for the pros at Team Sky when tackling the harsh and beautiful cobbled classics. While it does lack the suspension of the K-S, comfort is still the name of the game, and if you're looking for a lightweight steed to crush your next gran fondo epic, we can't think of many other frames we'd rather be on board. The same Torayca T1100 1K Nano-alloy composite used on the Dogma F8 is called on for construction duties on the K8. This guarantees lightweight performance with the ability to gobble up pave and chip seal imperfections, helping you stay fresh in the breakaway. Also helping to improve ride comfort and handling while on the rivet, chewing stem, and trading out pull for pull, the geometry receives some tweaks. Most notable of these is a slightly longer wheelbase and a headtube that has grown a smidge for a touch more stability when the pace is a bloc over bumpy secteurs. This frameset is almost purpose-built for events like the Roubaix sportive, cobbled waffle rides, or Battenkill. Pinarello asymmetric design philosophy carries over to the K8, so areas of the frame that are on the sharp end of wattage transfer are beefed up to handle the forces while other areas see a reduction in material, saving weight and smoothing out the ride. The frame's stiffness is very much on par with the Tour-winning Dogma F8, and--since it's a race bike, after all--the K8 also gets the same aerodynamic details, including the FlatBack shaping on the down tube, seat tube, and seat stays. These wind-cheating elements let you get more speed out of less effort, and you can keep a little bit more energy in reserve for a late race attack or to contest the smal...

Pinarello Dogma K8-S Disc Road Frameset - 2017 Pinarello Dogma K8-S Disc Road Frameset - 2017
Suspension and disc brakes are things you'd typically only find on bikes designed to be ridden in the dirt. That's all changing with the influx of disc-equipped cross bike, a trend towards all-road capability, and a continued push to make the cobbled classics a little less jarring on pro tour bodies. Enter the 2017 Pinarello Dogma K8-S Disc Road Frameset. Born from collaboration between Pinarello and the same Jaguar supercar engineers who helped design the legendary Dogma 8, the K8-S Disc pairs Pinarello's unique rear suspension with disc brake compatibility to set a new standard for rough road ability. Pinarello again relies on Japanese carbon fiber supplier Toray for the K8-S frame's material. It features Torayca T1100 1K Dream Carbon with Nano-alloy technology, which is the same material used in the Dogma F8. While the name is certainly impressive, its application is even more so. T1100 1K is the current go-to outer skin for many modern aircrafts, and its stiffness-to-weight ratio is nothing short of stunning. But weight, of course, is only a slice of the Dogma equation; we all know tube shaping also plays a vital role in the bike's handling and overall efficiency. Starting at the front of the frame, Pinarello utilizes its Onda Disk fork, which has slightly more rake than the F8's front end to add a hint of additional compliance and stability. As with the F8's front end, the Onda fork is inspired by Pinarello's TT-specific Bolide, with an optimized surface profile that effortlessly manages airflow from the front wheel. The blades describe a somewhat convex, bow-legged shape, which Jaguar's engineers claim keeps air attached, reducing the size of the wake without creating too large a frontal zone. The Dogma K8-S' front triangle closely mirrors the shape and aerodynamic profile of the Dogma F8. Pinarello incorporates its signature FlatBack technology with oval-front and flattened-back tubing throughout the frame and fork for an aerodynamic profile that slices...

Pinarello Dogma K8-S Road Frameset - 2017 Pinarello Dogma K8-S Road Frameset - 2017
Road bikes and plush suspension aren't things you usually think of pairing, especially in a race bike, but when one of the world's most dominant teams wants a bike to soften the spring classics cobbles you start thinking outside the proverbial road racing box. Enter the 2017 Pinarello Dogma K8-S Road Frameset, the result of a collaboration between Pinarello and the same group of Jaguar supercar engineers who helped design the venerable Dogma F8. Steeped in Pinarello heritage and boasting a unique rear suspension, the K8-S sets a new bar for rough-road performance. Pinarello again relies on Japanese carbon fiber supplier Toray for the K8-S frame's material.

Pinarello Gan 105 Complete Road Bike - 2017 Pinarello Gan 105 Complete Road Bike - 2017
The cycling industry is a funny place. It's a world where the Gan 105 Complete Road Bike is considered entry-level in Pinarello's line of racing bikes. Pinarello calls it a "less extreme" version of the Dogma F8; we call it a far more extreme frame than the ones that were ridden to grand tour victory over most of the two decades. The grade of materials, stiffness-boosting layup, and even the Shimano 105 drivetrain spec'd on it are actually equal to or better than what guys like Sastre, Schleck, and Evans were riding during their respective Tour wins. So despite not being the current top of the heap, we think the Gan may be the best bet for the self-sponsored racer and the ambitious recreationalist alike. The way we see it, you can easily double the price of this bike without seeing much improvement in frame construction or drivetrain. The Gan's frame stacks up so well against far pricier frames because it shares the design philosophy and many of the key structural features that define Pinarello's current super bike, the Dogma F10. The differences are that the frame's asymmetrical elements are slightly more subdued and the material used is of a lower grade--Instead of the Dogma's superlative T11001K carbon fiber, the Gan uses T600. This involves a small weight gain and a slight loss of stiffness, but it still represents a frame that the likes of Contador or Froome would've considered an upgrade during their early careers. There may be some cyclists who are strong and savvy enough to note the difference while hammering up an HC climb, but we suggest that they're few and far between. (We'd also assume that, like Froome, they're not paying for their own machines.) The Dogma genotype manifests virtually unchanged in the Gan's FlatBack tube shaping, which was originally adapted from the 65. 1 Dogma, updated for the F8 and F10, and then trickled down to the Gan line. FlatBack is the result of 70 possible frame configurations and 300 CFD analysis cycles spent finding th...

Pinarello Gan Disc 105 Complete Road Bike - 2017 Pinarello Gan Disc 105 Complete Road Bike - 2017
Disc brakes recently saw an abbreviated tenure in the peloton, but the rest of us are free to take advantage of increased modulation and stopping power on our daily rides. Whether you're training for a century, logging epic social miles, or hitting up a local race ride, the 2017 Gan Disc 105 Complete Road Bike combines Pinarello's legendary ride quality, confident disc braking, and Shimano's workhorse drivetrain at a price that'll leave a few coins left over for those important post-ride burritos. The Gan Disc features similar eye-catching styling as the top-tier Dogma F8, with its signature curves and aerodynamic detailing making the bike as stunning as it is fast. The most notable difference between the two frames is the type of carbon used to make them. While the Dogma F8 boasts the top-end of the top-end Toray T1100 1K Dream Carbon with Nanoalloy Technology, the Gan RS consists of more compliant T600 carbon that sacrifices a bit in the weight and stiffness categories, but drops the overall cost drastically. The Gan Disc incorporates a few tweaks to the lay-up compared to its rim-brake equipped sibling and reinforcement at the brake mounts to accommodate the extra load of disc braking forces. As with the Dogma F8, this frame incorporates Pinarello's asymmetrical design for claimed improvements in power transfer and comfort. The asymmetry in the Gan Disc's seatstays is less extreme than in the Dogma F8, resulting in a more compliant and comfortable ride while still providing benefits in handling to keep you feeling solid out on the road. At the top junction of the stays, a wishbone shape serves to provide clean lines and aerodynamic protection to keep the rear brake out of the wind so you don't have to worry about it slowing you down when you don't want it to. The Gan Disc also incorporates the Dogma F8's Flatback technology.

Pinarello Gan K Disc Ultegra Complete Road Bike - 2017 Pinarello Gan K Disc Ultegra Complete Road Bike - 2017
Though its innovative climbing frames have now spent dozens of years at the top of the GT leaderboard, Pinarello's endurance machines have received no less R&D attention. The Gan K Disc Ultegra Complete Road Bike proves this point by also proving that the venerable Italian firm has no interest in leaving the long distance cyclist in the lurch. The Gan K Disc's racing pedigree surfaces in the precise carbon fiber construction and Shimano Ultegra drivetrain (including the Ultegra 68000 crankset--no third-party slop here) and Ultegra-grade hydraulic disc brakes. The endurance aspect is apparent in the frame's all-terrain geometry and the inclusion of hydraulic disc brakes. When these attributes are combined, the result is a bike that loves to go fast all day. Though it's a stiff beast, the Gan K's as focused on comfort as it is on efficiency, a fact that manifests in its geometry. Compared to the Gan S, the Gan K has slacker seat and head tubes, longer chainstays, comfort-oriented FlexStay seatstays, a shorter reach, and a taller stack. These variations are all subtle--manifesting as millimeters or even fractions of millimeters--but the net result is a longer, more stable wheelbase and a cockpit that situates the rider in a more upright position. The Gan S is largely modeled on the Dogma F8, so it's a race bike, through-and-through; the changes to the Gan K mean it's less of an unforgiving missile and more of smooth rouleur, a bike built for laying down miles of tempo across rolling terrain rather than punching the afterburners out of every corner and into every ascent. The Gan K doesn't twitch violently at every rider input; rather, it flows through corners and across rough roads, holding lines as though it's self-guided. These tendencies are reinforced by the front and rear thru-axles, which reinforce the wheel/frame interface, an area that's traditionally guilty of sacrificing handling and power transfer through flex. For all that comfort and stability, the...

Pinarello's 2017 Gan RS Road Frameset may just be the answer to those top-tier frameset woes, drawing heavily on the technology and design found in the Dogma F8 but swapping out the prestigious Dream Carbon for a more affordable carbon fiber makeup that still sits on par with most of the top-tier competition. The Gan RS presents the same eye-catching style as the Dogma F8, including the signature curves and aerodynamic detailing that make the bike just as stunning as it is fast. The main difference between the two frames is the type of carbon used to construct them. While the Dogma F8 features the best of the best Toray T1100 1K Dream Carbon with Nanoalloy Technology, the Gan RS consists of slightly more compliant T900 carbon that sacrifices a tiny bit of weight and stiffness, but drops the overall cost significantly. While this carbon is slightly less rigid than the T1100 1K, it remains a high-strength, race-worthy layup designed to ride hard and fast.

Pinarello Gan RS Ultegra Complete Road Bike - 2018 Pinarello Gan RS Ultegra Complete Road Bike - 2018
Pinarello makes premium race bikes often with price tags reflecting it. You simply don't attain those Tour palmares without leading edge materials and technology to build these world class frames. The downside to this is high overhead associated in the development, and to recoup this, the bikes are often well out of a typical privateer racer's budget. Pinarello realizes this, and to help get more riders on its bikes, it created the Gan RS Ultegra Complete Road Bike. The frame is based heavily on the Dogma F8 and F10, maintaining a very similar ride quality and performance but with carbon material that makes pricing much more aggressive. It's still not thrifty, sure, but certainly in line with the race bikes from the more ubiquitous brands. Shimano's latest Ultegra componentry and Fulcrum Racing wheels build a bike that is every bit as capable of tackling long climbs and big days in the saddle without squandering the kid's college sayings. Aesthetically, the Gan RS is a near clone of the Dogma F8, and from a distance it could easily be mistaken for one. Underneath the paint, the Dogma F8's Toray T1100 1K Dream Carbon with Nanoalloy Technology is substituted for a slightly more compliant T900 carbon, gaining a tiny bit of weight and stiffness but dropping the overall cost significantly. While this carbon is slightly less rigid than the T1100 1K, it still possesses very good strength to weight ratios and not too long ago would have been the material of choice for top-end frames. We doubt many will notice much of a difference in the ride quality and will appreciate the money saved opting for the Gan RS. As with the Dogma, this frame incorporates Pinarello's trademark asymmetric design, which Pinarello credits with improving power transfer and comfort. While the asymmetry isn't quite as extreme in the Gan RS as the Dogma line, the compliance and road feel is there in spades, and if you didn't know about the F8 and F10, you'd swear you were on the brand's best fra...

The Gan S sits in the middle of Pinarello's Gan line, pairing the classic Pinarello aesthetics with in Shimano's race-worthy Ultegra components. The pros may ride Dura-Ace only, but we'd challenge any self-sponsored cyclist to make a convincing argument that the handful of grams separating it from Ultegra will be the difference between falling of the back and finishing on the podium. The Gan S features the same eye-catching styling as the Dogma F8, with its signature curves and aerodynamic detailing making the bike just as stunning as it is fast. The main difference between the two frames is the type of carbon used in their constructions. While the Dogma F8 boasts the top-end of the top-end Toray T1100 1K Dream Carbon with Nanoalloy Technology, the Gan S consists of more compliant T700 carbon. T700 sacrifices a tiny bit in the weight and stiffness categories, sure, but it drops the overall cost significantly. While this carbon is less rigid than T1100 1K, it's still a high-strength layup. Make no mistake, the Gan S is a race-ready machine. As with the Dogma F8, this frame incorporates Pinarello's signature asymmetrical design for claimed improvements in power transfer and comfort.
