Pinarello Dogma F10 Disk Road Frameset - 2018 $5,999.00
Over the Top.
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 feel like adding an anchor to our lightweight steed. Luckily, Pinarello has launched the Dogma F10 Disk Frameset and it is the perfect foundation for building the ultimate road bike.
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 additional of discs 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 stresses that they will see, without overbuilding the entire frame adding unnecessary weight or making the bike very harsh riding. Pinarello continues its use of an Italian threaded bottom bracket shell, getting kudos from us, as it is easier to install, maintenance is way easier and the potential of press-fit creaks are eliminated.
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 allow for out-of-the saddle climbing efforts and sprinting without nary a brake rub. Pinarello adds fork flaps, essentially mini fairings, to the trailing edge of the dropouts to further increasing stiffness and enhance the aerodynamics. A 12mm thru-axle is also used out back to secure the rear wheel. Like the F10, this bike has clearance for tires up to 25mm since this is after all, a road racing bike and 25mm tires offer the best balance of aero efficiency and rolling resistance. This isn't as much clearance as other disc brake drop bar bikes on the market and many might be disappointed by the lack of space for tires, but an F10 did win Strade Bianche in 2017 piloted by Michal Kwiatkowski on Continental Competition 25mm tubular rolling stock. We doubt the majority of you looking at this frameset have ambitions to build this into your gravel grinding rig but the bike does have some gravel riding in its pedigree. The beautifully balanced geometry from the F10 carries over and it has proven itself comfortable enough to carry riders comfortably into the third week of a stage race yet so confident on the descents, you feel like cornering hard enough to blister a tire. The addition of discs encourage you to push your speeds downhill even more with all of that power available at your fingertips.
Pinarello is accustomed to supplying the sport's best with bikes, so they know a thing or two about fit. The Dogma F10 Disk is available in a multitude of sizes ranging from 44 to 59.5cm. Color choices on offer include Black Lava, Black on Black, Red Magma and Team Sky.
