Marvel at trickle-down technology.

Pinarello has always been a revered Italian cycling brand, but it's been in the last decade that the company's success in the grand tours has earned it enormous attention, and thus, business. Now in command of far larger R&D budgets, Pinarello has been able to afford to create less expensive, more everyday machines for the masses without compromising the famous handling or ride quality for which its premium machines are known. Case in point: The Pinarello Marvel, a 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 Marvel 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.

Now, let's explain that Dogma-Prince-Marvel lineage a little better. Most important to understand is that all three frames come out of the same carbon molds, and all three use an identical construction method, wherein a dissolvable poly foam is used to smoothly and precisely form the inner walls of the frame, eliminating structural consistency issues associated with using inflatable bladders for the same purpose. The Marvel uses the same Onda (Latin for "wave") seatstay and fork design from its more expensive siblings to smooth out the road. The frame also utilizes the same asymmetrical frame design the two more senior members of its family use, capitalizing on the crank's drive-side cranking forces by aligning various elements of the frame — some you can see, some you can't — from the rear triangle to the headtube in such a way that they harness this imbalance to its benefit. The result is a dramatically stiffer, more responsive bike when pedaling hard, and it's something you'll not want to do without once you’ve gotten used to it.

Digging deeper, though, we see that the material used in said molds is just as important, and Pinarello focuses here as well. Sourcing from Japan's foremost carbon manufacturer, Torayca, Pinarello uses 30k-ton carbon for the Marvel. What this means is that it takes 30,000 tons of pressure per square centimeter to deform the carbon. On the top-dog Dogma, Pinarello uses 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 known.

Built up with a host of Pinarello's house-brand MOst componentry and a Shimano Ultegra drivetrain, this Marvel's somewhat aggressive geometry makes it a perfect machine for the aspiring racer or a limit-pushing weekend warrior.

Awesome Ride

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I'm a mountain biker and so the roadie is new to me. CC had been great as far as getting the right size for me.
I love the the bike. Super fast and light. Handles well. Frame alone is sexy. Quality built. For the price, I believe it was worth buying. I don't have anything bad to say about it so far. Two thumbs up for me.

Unanswered Question

How is that bike for climbing ?
I usually ride flat roads but once in a while i do GrandFondos and such with long climbs... Trying to figure between this Pinarello - Ridley Noah and Storck Scenero G3.

Unanswered Question

What size in the Marvel would you recommend for me. I am 5'9" and currently ride a Felt Z80 in size 56. The Z80 has a TT dimension of 560 and a ST dimension of 520 (or 530). The chart for the Marvel says I should be in size 54, but was curious if I should go with 55. Not a big difference between the two.
Thanks for your help, Marty

fantastic Italian ride

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

If you rode the much more expensive dogma a couple years ago you know what your getting here. It's based off of one of the most popular high end bikes of the last several years but about a third of the cost. The ride is plush and exquisite. It's not overly aggressive on fit and comfortable to ride longer distance or someone not wanting to be in a flat position. The rear triangle and fork really help soak up the road to give a smooth ride. The fulcrum wheels have a great hub that felt great. The Ultegra is about flawless and bombproof, over time it will not let you down. if you have any questions at all on specs or sizing don't hesitate to get in touch with me directly, kylebrown@backcountry.com

Wow... Just wow.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Due to a number of reasons I had been out of the saddle for around 17years. I had previously owned a Specialized M2Comp and Kestrel all those years ago. At first glance I just loved the look of the frame. The attention to detail is stunning to me as I find bicycles not just engineering marvels but as art as well. Then I was punched in the gut at the price. Remember it has been a long time and I forgot how pricey this hobby can get. Then I took it on a test ride. It didn't take more than about a few feet of pedaling to know I could not purchase anything else (I had also considered a few other frames by Cervelo, Trek, and Specialized). This frame is a pure joy to ride. It inspires confidence at all speeds and tracks like nothing I've ever ridden. The angles aren't too aggressive but just right for club rides and semi serious racing. I am the only thing holding this frame back.
Back to its price. I believe it's more than justified. One would have to spend a hefty sum more to get a better ride. But as everyone is different, and we all know that no frame is perfect for everyone, it comes really down to taking it for a spin. Best purchase I've made in years.

Hello. I believe that Pinarello Marvel is quite the same bike with my Pinarello FPQuattro 2013 Ultegra. Am I right or are there any differences? Thank you.

It is similar in that it derives from the Paris in some ways but the carbon material is different and takes some of the aerodynamic qualities from the Dogma. Any other question on these contact me directly at kylebrown@backcountry.com. I can also help out the pricing on an order for one.

What is the difference belt wee the Rokh and the Marvel? The specs look the same from what I can see. Thanks!

Hi, the parts selection are very similar on the two models, but the frames are pretty different. The Marvel has more of a long & low race geometry, and the wavy Onda Seatstays. The KOBH has a more upright geometry with a longer head tube and shorter top tube, and a more-compliant bow-shaped seatstay. Give us a call to chat about the two models!
