Why We Like The Dogma F12 Disk Red AXS Road Bike
Pinarello's Dogma F12 Disk Red AXS Road Bike is synonymous with speed and competition. It's a name that represents more than just racing, but also excellence and quality. Pinarello claims it as the "most successful bicycle in history." Full stop. This bike, under various professional teams, has dominated Grand Tours and made history as a racing steed that simply does its job well. In short, it'll get us to the front of the pack with speed and purpose. From mountain rides to breakaway flats and, last but not least, sprints to the finish line, the Dogma F12 is fully capable of reaching peak performance and then some. With its SRAM Red eTap AXS 12-speed groupset, we're prepared for anything with some of the smoothest electronic shifting on the market. This isn't your everyday bike.
We don't think of the F12 as a reiteration of the F10 with some updated features. It's a whole new bike with improvements that expand our riding capabilities. With aerodynamics and smooth shifting, the Dogma F12 reaches new heights and expands our horizons. This bike's aero enhancements save us eight watts of power at 40 kilometers an hour, which cuts off a second from each kilometer we ride without wasting a breath or pedal stroke. The integrated Talon Ultra Handlebar is part of this improvement, but also the shaping of the Onda fork and carbon frame. We like the increased lateral stiffness at the bottom bracket, giving us more power than we know what to do with, and which gives us an upper hand when we're breaking away from the pack during flat sprints. And, this stiffness comes without any additional weight, which is a feat we tip our hat to Pinarello for achieving.
The Dogma F12 is built with high tensile and high modulus carbon fiber with patented Nanoalloy Technology for high performance and a lightweight feel. TiCR internal cable routing completely hides cables within the integrated handlebar for aero advantages, protection, a clean cockpit, and the allowance for both mechanical or electro-mechanical groupsets. Pinarello's Onda fork delivers precision turning and stability, plus the reduction of longitudinal and lateral shocks, which makes for a better ride altogether. With pure Italian design, Pinarello exceeds expectations in the Dogma F12 and gives us more than we have come to expect from such a renowned brand.
*Due to unprecedented demand in the global supply chain and the bike industry over the last 18 months, material weight and exact components are subject to change. We are working diligently to keep tech specs updated, and any adjustments will be minor. If you have any questions, reach out to a Gearhead by chatting online or calling 1-888-276-7130.
