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.

Pinarello GAN K Disk Ultegra 2017 Black /Red

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.

Pinarello GAN K Disk Fork

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.

Mercurio Carbon Disc Sora Bike

The 2017 Pinarello Mercurio Sora is a little bit of everything, but a whole lot of fun. This Pinarello is light enough to be used as a road bike, with the stack and reach to allow for an aggressive, endurance-friendly riding position. Its disc brakes make it great for riding in city traffic. It has the clearance for 28mm tires if you want to play in the mud or roll down a gravel road. Mercurio rack eyelets allow you to attach attach a rack and it becomes a commuter bike, but with disc brakes. This is a bike that is made for anything but most of all, this is made for adventures and it has the Mercurio price point to make them possible.

2017 Pinarello Mercurio Carbon Disc Sora Bike

The Mercurio is made of 24HMUD carbon which is tough enough to withstand whatever you have in mind, but costs less than what they employed in the Dogma or GAN brands. The frame comes in four sizes, with Shimano Sora components. It is also an easy bike to upgrade. Pinarello’s Think2 routing makes it simple to go electric, mechanical, or hydraulic. Also, like all new Pinarello models it has an asymmetrical frame, increasing pedaling efficiency. There is also plenty of tire clearance so you can switch the Mercurio stock tires for bigger ones.

Pinarello’s Flagship Dogma F-series gets faster, stiffer and lighter with newest F10

Pinarello Dogma F10 road bike 2017 red magma

Pinarello Dogma F10 road bike 2017 red magma




 

Leading up to the kickoff of the Pro Tour season, Pinarello has unveiled their newest race bike. Going straight from the Dogma F8 to the F10, as is typical, the new bike promises to be better in almost every way. In addition to better looks, the Dogma frame builds in a few new features in increase the aerodynamic advantage while carbon tech keeps the weight low and the stiffness high…

 

 

Many of the new additions to the F10 frame come by way of their Bolide TT model. One of those details comes in the form of their Fork Flap design which is said to better direct the flow of air around the back of the front wheel to reduce drag and improve handling. Additionally, the F10 uses a concave downtube which offers a big performance increase in aerodynamics between the downtube and water bottles.

Along with aerodynamic tweaks, the F10 also incorporates electronic control into the downtube. Called E-Link, the housing for the control unit makes for a cleaner design rather than having something hanging off the stem.

 

Thanks to the addition of Torayca 1100-1k carbon fiber in addition to other, the frame ends up 6.5% lighter but 7.1% stiffer. Claimed weight for a 53cm frame is 820g.

Gan GRS Carbon Ultegra

The 2017 Pinarello GAN gravel bike features elastomer suspension with flex stays, originally designed for Team Sky to comfortably ride over cobbled roads in France. The GAN bike features the same suspension found on the Dogma K8-S: thinner chainstays (which are wider horizontally for enhanced stiffness), an incorporated molded-in pivot point for the seatstays, and a rear suspension unit– the Pinarello DSS 1.0 (Pinarello Dogma Suspension System).

pinarello-gan-grs-rear-suspension

The rear dampening system isn’t the only feature that has adapted the GAN bike for gravel: the geometry has been updated to have a longer wheelbase than the GAN, smaller bottom bracket drop, and a longer headtube for a slightly more relaxed riding position, as well as space for 38mm tires. Flat mount hydraulic disc brakes provide the smooth stopping power you want when racing. The setup also includes fender mounts.

The GAN features Pinarello’s signature Flatback technology that significantly reduces aerodynamic drag with its oval-front and flattened-back tubing throughout the frame and fork, creating an aerodynamic profile that slices cleanly through the wind. The carbon fiber T600 that the GAN is constructed from makes for a stiff and powerful frame. Also featured are an integrated seat clamp and aero seatpost.

The Shimano Ultegra groupset has smooth mechanical shifting that performs exceptionally at a lighter weight than the 105 groupset that comes with the non-suspension version of the GAN GR.

Features:

  • Frame: GAN Disk high-modulus T900 carbon
  • Fork: GAN Onda high-modulus
  • Suspension: DSS 1.0 – Elastomeric Dumper and FLEX STAYS

Treviso Carbon Disc Sora

REFINE YOUR IN-TOWN RIDE.

Clip into a more refined ride on the 2017 Pinarello Treviso Sora Bike, to get yourself truly rolling in style. Years ago, a Pinarello rusty frame scrounged together with yard-sale pieces was a trendy way to get across town faster than walking and with freedom not found in a bus schedule, provided all the nuts and bolts held together for the trip. Things change though, and once you’ve moved on to dream bikes like the Treviso as a buttoned-down commuter kit, it’s time to upgrade and get your townie game on. Featuring a smooth shifting Shimano Sora drivetrain, powerful disc brakes, and clean aesthetics, the Treviso add a dash of functional style to the daily grind.

2017-pinarello-treviso-sora

Made from high-quality T600 fiber, the Treviso’s frame provides a responsive ride while sopping up road vibrations to keep you comfortable over the miles. Its eye-catching lines feature classic Pinarello curves, strategically placed to provide compliance where it’s needed while maintaining efficient energy transfer from the pedals into forward motion.

Pinarello Dogma K8-S Suspension Road Bike

Pinarello Dogma F8-3 red

Dogma K8-S – 689 Carbon Red

 

 

 

 

 

 

Born to tame the Pavè…and so much more.. in Pinarello style.

Yes, the new Pinarello Dogma will revolutionize the world of road bikes, creating a new segment: The REAR SUSPENDED. The Dogma rear suspension is the result of a specific request of TEAM SKY: to have an innovative frame able to reduce the psycho-physical stress of the athletes, and thus increase the performance in the HELL OF NORTH. Thankfully though the new K8 is available to the public as well.

Pinarello Dogma K8-S

As with their F8 model, Pinarello assembled their team of Italian and British engineers, who collaborated to put on the road a bike with well-defined characteristics: vertically compliant yet stiff at the same moment and of course maintaining the weight of a competitive road bike. They designed a lightweight suspension system in combination with the new carbon chain stays, able to flex, in order to create a pivot point for the perfect Pinarello riding comfort.

The K8 front triangle is similar to the one of DOGMA F8. Geometry though is just slightly modified, for better riding on rough terrain, whereas the rear triangle changes, thanks to the new suspension DSS 1.0 (Dogma Suspension System) and new flat chain stays FLEXSTAYS™.

After laboratory tests, which ensured safety and efficiency of the new frame, the new DOGMA rear suspension was tested covering the last 130km of the Paris-Roubaix route, with Bradley Wiggins and Christian Knees. Over long and regular cobbles sectors, they were able to perform comparison tests with the previous DOGMA K. Both frames had accelerometers, powermeters and GPS instrumentation.

The results obtained were astonishing: simplifying, we can say that after repeated runs on the cobble sectors, with both bikes, the new rear suspension allowed an 8% increase in speed, while expending 10% less energy (data provided by JAGUAR-LAND ROVER). Also the new frame (in size 53), complete with suspension, weighs less than 1kg, exactly 990 grams. The K8 is a revolutionary frame, which will open new scenarios in road bike riding and racing.

 

 

Born to tame the Pavè…but not only that. Pinarello Dogma K8-S…beyond expectations.

The same front triangle of the Dogma F8 but with a very innovative rear triangle. These are the shapes of the future! Today we designed a new why the new rear suspended model has in its DNA forms of the F8, but an innovative rear triangle that will introduce a new segment for the Road Bike.

Pinarello Road Bikes

 

The Pinarello Marvel, is little brother of the celebrated Prince, which is itself a little brother of the Dogma, a frame that is subject to much affection by the pros. The Pinarello Ultegra Complete bike takes the Marvel frameset and dresses it in race-ready parts and a Shimano Ultegra drivetrain, creating a machine that anyone can, and will, very much enjoy.

 

Pinarello Marvel Ultegra 2015

 

Here’s the rundown for what the Dogma-Prince-Marvel lineage means. Most importantly all three of them come from the same carbon mold, and all three use an identical construction method, where a poly foam that dissolves is used to smoothly and precisely form the inner walls of the frame. This allows for the Marvel to be consistent in quality matters.

 

Pinarello Marvel Ultegra White road bike 2015

 

Digging deeper, Pinarello has sourced from Japan’s foremost carbon manufacturer, Torayca, as they have empolyed 30k-ton carbon here for 2015. What this means is that it takes 30,000 tons of pressure per square centimeter to deform the carbon. On the top-dog Dogma, they use Torayca’s 65k-ton carbon. This stronger carbon means that less needs to be used, resulting in a lighter frame. The Marvel, using 30k, takes a bit more material to achieve the same stiffness, but the weight gain is negligible, and the frame is still incredibly light and preserves the wonderful handling and the fantastic, almost steel-like ride quality for which the Dogma and Prince are world renown for.

Pinarello Dogma XM 9.9



 

Full Suspension – Carbon 60HM3K Torayca® – DOGMA XM01 9.9

pinarello dogma xm 9.9

 

 

 

 

 

As a spectacular display of all the high end bikes and opportunities out there on both the singletrack and tarmac surfaces, Pinarello seems to be one of the leaders who aren’t afraid of pushing on what most people feel are maybe the limits and boundaries of the human powered two wheeled invention. Which leads us to here with Pinarello’s ultimate goal to make the new DOGMA XM nearly as stiff as their road models, while being suspended only when it’s necessary, without using any remote controls! This is truly reality with what they term the Onda Curve Asymmetric™!
Quite possibly the dream for every mtb rider.. What’s that you ask? Is to shred on a DOGMA mountain bike that dampens only if needed. Up till now, this was only possible with remote controls and handlebar lever gadgets. But thankfully there are some extremely bright designers out there in the world, and a handful of them are at Pinarello, unveiling the newest rear quadrilateral Onda Curve Asymmetric™ suspension platform to change the way you think. It’s quite firm on the flatter ground but it then actuates the DOGMA XM on the uneven style terrain. The Pinarello setup is a fairly complicated combination of several technologies. Most full suspension frames developed these days require about 6 different points of rotation combined with bearings/ bushings. Which nearly always takes place either near the bottom bracket or the rear wheel. Which allows that sixth rotation point to always be active, regardless if terrain is smooth or flat, which makes it heavy at that point since there are bushings and bolts, and requires continual maintenance. All this no longer exists on the Italian ride! This Pinarello design only has 5 points of rotation, with a creative monocoque layup that functions thanks to a flexible carbon arm that makes the XM rear triangle rigid on even ground and flexible only on uneven surfaces. This cutting edge technology originated from the rocker arm designs on Formula One cars!

Creative vision, + Formula1 technology, sums up the first full-suspension MTB from the high creative personnel at Pinarello.

JUMP In!

CARBON 60HM3K: has 60 tons of resistance per square centimeter, high modulus. 3000 fibers per warp. The frame arrangement also has passages for both gear and brake cables to be internal within the frame.

Pinarello’s key engineers prefer the brake caliper to be positioned in the chain stay.

Asymmetric positioning: The right side of a frame is dedicated to the crank, and the front derailleur; which causes it to be slightly unbalanced. The central shock on the setup, doesn’t directly touch the carbon frame, but is indirectly connected to the bottom bracket thanks to a machined alloy arm that gets anchored with 8 bolts. This contributes to less stress on the frame and further strengthens the DOGMA’s bb. This placement of the shock is asymmetric to perfectly counterbalance the right side. The result is perfect balance.

On the DOGMA’s they also employ PINAFIT with Forkstopper ™ to enable you to exploit the full power of the perfect front triangle.

Most manufacturers design around the assumption that the suspension fork should be able to rotate 360°. Which forces them to stretch out the main triangle which inevitably compromises its own natural stiffness qualities.
This Pinarello Forkstopper design protects the toptube and handlebars in case you fall down.

The seat clamp is XPower ™ that ensures grip on the seat tube, which reduces nearly 50% of the stress.

They have also replaced the classic 15mm bearing style with low friction IGUS ® bushings, to guarantee a higher level of performance and durability.

ASYMMETRY IS A BEAUTIFUL THING.

As shown above in the highly complicated design, Pinarello has challenged what conventional setups are all about, all in the name of efficiency. They have approached this newest XC platform by employing highly complicated asymmetric engineering principles that are now world renown, and proven themselves time and again by the world’s most demanding riders out there. The Italian manufacturer’s new Pinarello Dogma XC 9.9 mtb stands in there as their highly skilled flagship cross-country frameset, it utilizes numerous high tech qualities, such as advanced tube shaping, a very complicated carbon layup design, along with a highly innovative thought process that places the crafty engineers well ahead of all the wolves in the pack. To ultimately put you on top of the podium, where you rightfully belong!

The key materials that were selected to construct the fabulous Dogma XC ride, are actually quite similar to what their top-end road frames are all about. Which utilize proprietary material that comes straight from the Japanese carbon fiber supplier known as Torayca. It’s a 60-ton 60HM1K Nano-alloy Carbon Fiber that’s makes things amazingly rigid and highly reactive both at the same time. As denoted by it’s name it’s fully capable of withstanding the full 60-tons worth of peak pressure for one square centimeter. Because the material supplies such a high level in the rigidity department the Pinarello designers were able to capitalize and use less of it in many of the key areas, which then helps to reduce the overall weight for this pure bred XC racing machine. For additional safety, Torayca designed the 60HM1K Nano-alloy technology with a perfect mixture of alloy nano-particles that actually get embedded right into the carbon weave itself. So through extensive testing they determined that these particles actually “explode” upon significant impact. Which allows, the particles to absorb the kinetic energy of any impact forces so that the carbon itself doesn’t have to.

For both the tube junction areas and the tube shaping on the race-bred Dogma XC were given very careful and thought out design consideration by Pinarello’s extensive team of engineers in regards to bump compliance and higher pedaling efficiency. Knowing that rigidity and power transfer are the key words when it comes to the down tube and chainstays, they constructed these with massive, oversized tube shapes. The bottom bracket that joins them was built using a PressFit 30 system, with the seat tube flaring out to the full shell width on the non-drive side. This design provides a rock-solid pedaling platform that directs your efforts straight to the rear wheel. Above this junction, Pinarello added an integrated front derailleur mount on the asymmetric seat tube, allowing for either SRAM or Shimano to be seamlessly routed.

For the head and down tube junction, take notice of Pinarello’s “ForkStopper” technology integrated into the frame. It has a purpose, as many frames are constructed with raised down tubes to limit contact with forks, the Dogma XC uses Pinarello’s PinaFit XX9 geometry. This design allows for a smoother, uncompromised downtube angle, which translates into better stability by using the correct geometry over other variables such as fork rotation. The ForkStopper allows Pinarello to use this geometry and also to address the issue of fork impact in the event of a crash.

At the rear triangle, the slender seat stays wear a shape reminiscent of its pavement-devouring Dogma cousins, but the sloping tubes come together up top as an integrated seat post clamp assembly above the top tube. Pinarello separated the seatstays both vertically and laterally into its “ONDA XC Asymmetric Twin Arms,” dissipating vibrations in a uniform way and across a large surface area. Its engineers wanted to address both stability and comfort with this design, which is why it carefully examined the way traditional hardtail frames were designed. A typical frame joins the seatstays, seat tube, and toptube at the same spot, which sends vibrations and impacts from the rear wheel straight to the top tube. By dividing the frame into two separate triangles — and moving the seatstays slightly higher than the top tube — shock transfer to the front of the frame is eliminated. The seatpost clamp itself is dubbed X Power, which allows the four-bolt clamp to securely hold the seatpost by joining the seatstays over the top tube. According to Pinarello, this reduced the stress in this clamping area by 50%, making a more effective setup.

Several key features found are the extremely clean cable system that are internally routed along with a very innovative rear brake mounting setup. Pinarello went the route of mounting the brake caliper to the chainstay, rather than on the traditional seat stay area. This Rear-Arm Disk (RAD) design allows the seat stays to maintain higher levels of bump compliance, that are uninterrupted by the braking process. Also, the big non-drive chainstay tube provides a stronger overall braking platform, resulting in highly-responsive, powerful braking out back.

The Pinarello XC 9.9 sizing is available from Small all the way up through X-Large, while the color is Matte Carbon.
