This bike frame has a paint chip on the top side of the tube tube. Please see the second picture and contact us with any questions you have about this bike.
Pinarello designs their top-of-the-line framesets based on the needs of their professional riders. As the pro peloton has been given the green light to use disc brakes for road races, the racers on Team Sky needed a bike that had all the handling traits of their Dogma F10 but with disc brakes. Thus the Dogma F10 Disk Frameset was born.
You’ll notice that this bike doesn’t have room for tires wider than 25mm. That is a direct result of input from Team Sky. They love how their F10 handles, and they wanted as little change as possible. To fit in wider tires, the wheelbase would be lengthened, with longer chain stays and a longer fork. These dimensional changes would detract from the handling that the Sky riders love, so Pinarello stuck with the same geometry of the F10. The geometry of which was dialed before they designed the F8. The F10’s ride is balanced, a defining characteristic that Pinarello was loath to mess with.
So, they turned their attention to improving aerodynamics. They made sure the F10 was more aero with two bottles sitting in the main triangle. Improving the airflow around the bottles was the most important key to reducing drag. You’ll notice that the fork crown still nestles in a notch between the down and head tubes. And if you take a look at the fork tips, you’ll see extended material behind the tips. These are “fork flaps” in Pinarello jargon, and they smooth out airflow on the trailing edge of the tips. Below the fork, the down tube dramatically changes shape just where the top of the down tube bottle rests. The new shape shields not only the down tube bottle, but the seat tube bottle if it’s run on the lower mounting point (there are three bosses in the seat tube, use the lower two for this aero advantage). The result of the shaping work is that the area around the bottles is 12.6% more aerodynamic. Less dramatic but still important is the shaping around the head tube and the underside of the top tube. These are designed to smooth flow as well.
Pinarello’s aero shaping as a second benefit, improved lateral stiffness. Traditional teardrop shapes are stiff in the direction of the teardrop, but flexy laterally. By making the shape wider, rounder, and shorter front-to-back, the shapes are much better at resisting pedaling-induced flex.
Pinarello is also known for their asymmetric designs, and this makes it easy for them to deal with the forces that rotor disc braking creates at the fork and chainstay. The results are subtle enough not to see in pictures, but are obvious to the eye in person. In terms of what you’ll feel on the ride, the answer is you won’t notice a difference, which means you won’t be able to tell that you’re on a disc-brake bike.
In terms of the discs, the mounting method is flat-mount for the fork, Pinarello’s RAD design for the chainstay. Hoses or cables run internally. 160mm rotors are recommended. The wheels attach via thru-axle, 100x12mm in front, 142x12mm in back, which is, thankfully, increasingly becoming standard.
