Gan Disk Easy Fit 105 Complete Road Bike
Pinarello hasn't forgotten its female fan base and offers a bike that represents a solid race rig with a price tag that makes owning one a reality. That bike, the Gan Disk Easy Fit 105 Complete Road Bike, uses a refined geometry and some women-specific touch points to create a bike that's comfortable and fast. Opposed to its T1100 1K Dream Carbon found on its top-tier Dogma F10 the Gan gets a more affordable carbon layup yet shares similar design and technology queues which brings Pinarello's renowned ride to a more attainable price point. Built up with Shimano's workhorse 105 componentry with powerful disc brakes and Fulcrum Racing wheels, this bike is ready to go off the front on every ride.
The Gan gets the same eye-catching style as the Dogma F10, with its signature curves and aerodynamic detailing that make the bike just as stunning as it is fast. The main difference between the two frames is the type of carbon used to construct them. While the Dogma F10 features the best of the best Toray T1100 1K Dream Carbon with Nanoalloy Technology, the Gan consists of slightly more compliant T600 carbon that sacrifices a tiny bit of weight and stiffness but drops the overall cost significantly. While this carbon is slightly less rigid than the T1100 1K, it remains a high-strength, race-worthy layup designed to ride hard and fast.
As with the Dogma F10, this frame incorporates Pinarello's trademark asymmetrical design for claimed improvements in power transfer and comfort. The asymmetry in the Gan's seatstays is less extreme than in the Dogma F10, resulting in a slightly more compliant and comfortable ride while still providing benefits in responsiveness to keep you feeling powerful on your rides. At the top junction of the stays, a wishbone shape provides clean lines and aerodynamic benefits.
Pinarello also incorporates the Flatback technology found in the Dogma F10 into the Gan RS, with its oval-front and flattened-back tubing throughout the frame and fork creating an aerodynamic profile that slices cleanly through the wind without interfering with ride quality or adding additional weight. As an added touch, an integrated seat clamp and aero seat post add to the wind-cutting advantage and sleek appearance.
The Gan Easy Fit comes complete with carefully internal cable routing compatible with the mechanical groupset here and electronic shifting systems, if you choose to upgrade down the road, for an added dose of aerodynamics and crisp, clean lines for any setup. It's finished with a threaded Italian bottom bracket, a trend that we're happy to see resurfacing across the industry. The CNC threads provide a more consistent, solid platform for installation to do away with PressFit models' creak and longevity issues.
