"Seven of the last 10 Tours de France have been conquered on a DOGMA, and the latest generation is now ready to continue that legacy of success. This is the culmination of all of our skill and experience, a masterpiece of engineering that offers advancements in handling, comfort, and aerodynamics all wrapped in a package that can climb, descend, and sprint with equal flair. Whatever the road throws at you, the DOGMA F is always the right bike."
When you have a frame that delivers not only incredible efficiency in lab and wind tunnel tests, but also regularly carries top riders to the podium throughout the road race calendar, improvements tend to be incremental refinements developed through even more advanced analysis and real world testing. In it's day the Pinarello Dogma F12 frameset was the benchmark, which didn't give the deranged geniuses at Pinarello even one moment's pause in their perpetual quest to build the world's next super bike.
Pinarello has long stated that weight is less an issue than the balance of aero efficiency, maximized power transfer, superior handling, and a more forgiving ride- but when faced with the excellence of the Dogma F12, it became clear that by assessing the whole assembly of the integrated cockpit and frameset, the overall set-up could be made lighter as well. By focusing on the seatpost, handlebars, and fork, as well as the frame, they were able to make the entire frame system 9% lighter than the F12 Disk.
Enter the Dogma F Disk. As a system, the Pinarello Dogma F Disk saves upwards of 265 grams compared to it's predecessor, while simultaneously gaining 12% stiffness around the bottom bracket. Reducing weight equals watts saved, but what is incredible is that the frame system weighs so little without compromising aerodynamics, handling, or ride quality. In fact, the Dogma F Disk has a lower drag than the Dogma F rim brake frame- a first for Pinarello.
Much of the disc brake aero advantage comes with the development of the new Onda fork for the Dogma F. The forks profile and cross sections improve fork and wheel integration, aerodynamically speaking, in order to smooth the air over the leading edge of the bike. Add in the Flatback aero shape design with it's truncated aerofoil for aerodynamic advantage, that is compliant to the 3:1 UCI rule, and you have excellent aero performance and low lateral wind resistance.
Beginning with the Dogma FPX AK61 Magnesium and continuing through the F10 and F12 The highest quality, most advanced materials have always been employed in Dogma-series framesets. The F Disk features the superlative properties of Torayca's T1100 1K Dream Carbon with Nanoalloy Technology. By refining the frame shapes and designs in the computer and wind tunnel, some weight directly came off the frame itself, while making several marginal aero gains that deliver a 4.8% improvement in aero efficiency over the F12 Disk, delivering a potential 2.6 watts saved at 50 km/hour. A modest but real gain that advances the demonstrated excellence of the F12 Disk. When you factor in the dropout to dropout Asymmetric engineering and design, which has long been proven effective for optimal power transfer, impeccable tracking, incredible handling at speed or while descending, and you have true cycling transcendence.Available for Electronic Shifting Only.
