Once again, winner of the Tour de France (2016) - indisputably the world's finest all-purpose road racing frame. Offered in 12 Italian designed color schemes
Replacing a bike as successful as the Dogma 65.1 Think 2 on which Sir Bradley Wiggins won the 2012 and Chris Froome secured his first victory in 2013 was never going to be easy, but Pinarello went back to the drawing board with input from Team Sky and Jaguar and designed yet another Tour de France-winning ride in the Dogma F8.
Pinarello claim the F8 is the benchmark for road bikes (because it would be silly to claim otherwise), and reckon that their newest ride is 12 per cent stiffer, 16 per cent ‘more balanced’ (though we still haven’t worked out that means) and 47 per cent more aerodynamic than the Dogma 65.1. It’s also dropped 120g off the 65.1’s weight, bringing it down to 860g for a 54cm frame.
Some of the fundamentals of the Dogma 65.1 have stayed, though, notably the Think 2 system, Pinarello’s answer to the problem of routing both mechanical and electronic groupsets on the same frame. The adapter system means you’re not struggling to adapt one to the other, and can run either a mechanical or electronic without any problems on the F8.
The fundamental goal with the F8, though, wasn’t to create a super light bike, but to build an aero road machine. One glance at the frameset compared to its predecessor and you can see that Pinarello have changed the tube shapes to the ‘Flatback’ profile, which keeps the front half of the airfoil shape, but removes the rear. Pinarello went through 25 different models and 300 individual CFD (computational fluid dynamics) runs before deciding on the F8 frame design, and the result was a frameset 47 per cent faster, and 17.5 percent faster taking the full bike (components, wheels and all) into account.
None of this, of course, is brand new for 2016 as the F8 debuted in May 2014 and Froome won his second Tour de France title on the F8 this summer. What is new, however, is the disc brake equipped version of the bike, the Dogma F8 Disk, which will be available for the new model year. According to Pinarello the geometry, material, stiffness and aerodynamics of the frame remain the same, but it comes equipped with Shimano’s new flat mount disc brakes and hydraulic braking.
