GAN K Disk Ultegra Road Bike
The 2017 Pinarello GAN Carbon Disk features similar drop-dead-gorgeous styling as the new Dogma F10, with its signature curves and aerodynamic detailing that make it stunning and fast. This new model was developed in the line though to replace the Rokh and the Raza K. And both those bikes were based off the Kobh, and the Dogma K8-Disk. If you’re not up on all these Pinarello models, the big thing to know is that the K is what they use to designate their cobblestone cruisers for racing, but they also double as endurance road bikes at home on roads of all conditions, and ideally suited to gran fondos and other epic events.
Geometry nowaday’s depicts what the bike is made to do. The Gan K shares a seat angle and chainstay length with the Dogma K8’s. They also share flattened and lengthened chainstays for better vertical compliance, and aero seat stays. Likewise, the K bikes get bigger bottom bracket drop, 72mm on most sizes, than the Dogma F8 and Gan S. And you get a longer fork rake, 47mm as well. These all contribute to a more stable ride that allows for frame flex to absorb the bumps without losing efficiency due to lateral flex. As the Gan line is designed for people who don’t have the flexibility of WorldTour riders, there is more stack and less reach than you’ll find on a Dogma. As this is an endurance bike, you’ll find a higher head tube than on the other Gan models.
For Pinarello tube shaping, they worked with a mix of carbon plies, including Torayca’s T600 cloth, to shape a bike that is aero without the discomfort that aero bikes often possess. The headtube has the aero shaping of the Dogma F8, with a notch for a Di2 junction box, while the disk specific fork legs have been splayed out a bit for better aerodynamics as well. The down and seat tubes utilize the FlatBack truncated airfoil which is aero, laterally stiff, while allowing vertical compliance. Cable routing is internal for both aerodynamics and cleanliness. It’s Pinarello’s Think2 system, meaning you can switch to electronic shifting as well, though you’ll want to pick up their accessory battery mount which fits inside the seatpost. The final touch on aero is the stem, spacers, and seatpost are all shaped to move through the wind..
The Ultegra groupset is Shimano’s mid level 11-speed set, which means you are getting the best value with this competitive groupset. The Ultegra shifts smoothly, making it comparable to it’s higher-end Dura Ace sibling.
