Description

Prince Ultegra Road Bike

In Pinarello's internal brand hierarchy, the Prince Ultegra Road Bike slots in just below the revered Dogma lineup. It's got a race geometry and many of the signature features that set the Dogma apart, but it's made from a slightly heavier carbon lay-up. The net effect is that the Prince brings Pinarello race tech out of our dreams and into our hands. Since we've situated in terms of Pinarello's hierarchy, it's easy to think the Prince is a budget bike for racers who value "high performance" but can't accommodate the correspondingly high price. That's not the case; the Prince is a race bike through and through, every bit equal to the pedigree of its namesake.

The Prince is available in multiple options, and the standard model (featured here) is built from T700 carbon compared to the Prince FX's T900. Both materials are slightly heavier than the Dogma's T1100 carbon, but they're still lighter and stiffer than the carbon used in bikes that were winning the Tour back when the Prince was still made of Scandium. And the Prince sacrifices only around two dozen grams to the Prince FX's T900 carbon layup.

The Prince receives Pinarello's advanced asymmetrical construction, aerodynamic touches at the dropouts and the head tube, and the Di2-friendly Think2 E-Link port on the downtube. The flatback tube shaping not only makes for a subtly aggressive and performance-oriented silhouette, but also improves the aerodynamic advantages of the Prince with a rounded leading edge and a truncated trailing edge. You'd be excused for assuming this is simply a Dogma made from slightly heavier material — we certainly did when we first threw a leg over its top tube.

  • High-performance carbon road-bike for self-sponsored racers
  • Pinarello's asymmetrical construction transfers power efficiently
  • Aerodynamic tube-shaping smooths airflow around the frame
  • Ultegra drive train offers racing-pedigree at accessible price point
  • Frame clearance for 28mm tires makes room for comfort
  • Pinarello is a proven multiple stage-race winning brand

Alright, I'm going to start with a couple things that you'll need to address before it's to your liking (in my opinion). First off, as has been mentioned, the wheel set is blasphemous on this bike. I immediately switched them out for Dura Ace Carbon clinchers with Continental Grand Prix tires on them. Perfection. Then, there's the issue of the saddle. Cheap, chinsy and lame. Never rode it - switched immediately to a Fizik Anrates R3 saddle. Comfortable, light and looks great on the bike. The only other thing is that the bottom bracket creaked pretty bad - think I've got it addressed though. I also added Dura Ace pedals. I also added an Element Bolt computer which fits the bars perfectly and tucks in nicely in front of the stem, plus it syncs with Strava seamlessly. This bike rips. The best way I can explain it is that it feels like a GS ski on a decent. Fast - feels like it want to take off on you, but stable and locked in. Such a blast descending on this bike. Climbs are comfortable and efficient - springs up the hill. It's stiff and with the carbon wheelset, you feel like you're getting instant power to the back wheel. On flats, it gets up and goes when you press the pedals and is a really nice, smooth ride. You won't feel beat up on the flats. I was really nervous about buying a bike online, but assembly was easy and the bike fit me to a tee. Very happy with this purchase!

Alright,

Great and informative review, thank you!

Nice

A Dogma for 1/2 Price, After Upgrades

I got my bike last week and have already put a couple hundred miles on it. It's incredibly fast and fun ride and is a great value next to Pinarello's top of the line Dogma which is about 3x as expensive and shares most of the same geometry. Aside from lighter carbon and a slightly more aggressive frame - which will likely only matter to racers - the big difference between the Prince and Dogma is in the components. Pinarello seems to have gone out of its way to equip the Prince with crappy parts in a few areas as a way of distinguishing between the two lines. The good news is that's easy to fix and the result is a bike stacks up well the what is arguably the fastest and most winning bike on the market for 1/2 the price (or less). Wheels - As others have noted, the stock wheels are truly bottom of the barrel. Riding this bike on them defeats the purpose of buying a high-end road bike. If this is the top of your budget, you'd be better served by a less expensive frame or a better out of the box bike like the Kestrel Talon X Dura-Ace which is comparably priced but comes with aero carbon wheels and a higher-end group set. But, if you can shell out a few grand for a set of performance wheels, you'll end up with a much better bike. I went with the DT Swiss ARC 1100 Dicuts which I'm running tubeless, but any aero/carbon wheel should make a big difference. Wheels are by far the most important upgrade, but I made a few other small changes as well to improve the speed and comfort. Handlebars - The stock handlebars are alloy, overly compact and not especially aerodynamic or comfortable. I swapped them out with carbon Easton EC70s which are faster, lighter and much more comfortable. The Easton's are a great buy, but if you really want to match the Dogma, Pinarello sells a version of the integrated carbon headset from the F12 (Talon) that is compatible with the Prince but its super pricey. Saddle - The included saddle is pretty budget as well and I found it both uncomfortable and heavy for its shape. I swapped it out for a Fizik Arione R1 which is both comfortable and light thanks to their performance foam and carbon rails. Groupset - I was initially concerned about the Ultegra group set, especially the crank which is on the heavier side. But have found it to be nearly indistinguishable from the Dura-Ace group and carbon crank which I'm running on another bike which was a pleasant surprise. All in all - I'm thrilled with the bike and would welcome a head to head with a Dogma. If you can upgrade the wheels I'd strongly recommend this bike (10/10) if not I'd look for alternatives.

Great insights, thanks for sharing all your thoughts on swapping parts!

Dylan Thanks for the great review and advise!

Would you rather build on a 2020 Prince frame or a Dogma F10, which can now be had for a greatly reduced price? I’m leaning toward building up an F10, especially since I’d prefer Campy components. Also, interested in what people think about the disk vs rim debate.

Amazing bike

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

Put several hundred miles on the prince now and absolutely love the ride. 10/10 recommend this for anyone that can afford this bike (and a wheel upgrade). The bike is a great harmony of being super light for climbs yet aero and zippy for the flats & descents. Descending is where this bike REALLY shines. Great cornering, high speed stability, and semi-aggressive frame build make for a really fun ride. The stock wheels suck but you really get what you pay for in my opinion. Which is a quality frame. If you can afford the bike you can probably afford to upgrade the wheels anyway. My only regret is going rim over disc brakes. It is a descending machine and the better stopping power could have helped with going down switchback style turns. Still, even the rim brake version has great control and can get you through any scenario. This bike is definitely a “one quiver” bike for road cycling.

re: rim vs. disc: with newer shimano brakes, as a 195 pounder, I can descend and brake fine. The shimano brakes are very powerful. Disc brakes are great if you are in the pouring rain a lot. Note that 3 or 4 teams in this year's 2020 TDF used rim brakes in all stages; including team INEOS, the Giant sponsored team and the team riding Eddie Merckx bikes. If good enough for them, good enough for me

In response to Tim R. I completley agree, because I don't normally ride in the rain(or mountains for that matter), I find rim brakes to be all I need. Never had an issue with them. Just purchased this bike, and can't wait for it to arrive!
