Aerodynamics, weight, geometry, tube thicknesses and profiles, the choice of carbon, all of these factors play a part in the perfect bicycle. There’s an art to finding the right equilibrium, and it’s an art that PINARELLO has always been dedicated to mastering. The new DOGMA F is the purest expression yet of that dedication, the combination of all our experience, taste, instinct, and skill.
This is a bike that is perfect for every type of rider and every terrain, because real-world riders aren’t specialised. You need a bike that can climb and descend with equal flair, attack every corner and make every watt count on the finishing straight. The DOGMA F is designed to do just that, no matter the circumstances.
Unlike so many other manufacturers, PINARELLO has never made distinctions between aerodynamic bikes and climber’s bikes because that’s not how people ride in the real world. Whether you’re an amateur riding for fun or a professional in a grand tour, every time you go out for a ride you come across varying terrain, and even the biggest climbs are only reached by riding across the plains.
When designing the DOGMA F, we put handling first, the same as we’ve always done. So often, cycling brands focus on weight, but the scales are misleading, and out on the road it’s responsiveness and comfort that matter more than shaving off a few grams. Yes, the complete DOGMA F Disc frame kit is 11% lighter than the F12, but that is a result of our R&D team’s commitment to innovation and new production methods such as 3D-printed titanium componentry. Close attention has been paid to the seat post, headset, fork, and the Talon cockpit, resulting in a saving of 265 grams compared to the DOGMA F12, while also being 12% stiffer around the bottom bracket, with improved aerodynamics providing significant watt savings.
Further evidence of that devotion to performance can be seen in the updated ONDA fork, which we designed from scratch twice so that both our rim brake and disc brake models could be as fast as possible. We did this because we believe that every cyclist should have the right to choose which brakes to use. The DOGMA F was developed with the same respect and attention to detail, regardless of whether it’s rim or disc, and that meant making two completely different forks for two completely different braking systems.
The result is a PINARELLO that’s more aero than ever. Drag is practically non-existent until the air has travelled halfway along the frame. And thanks to innovation derived directly from the Bolide, the blades of the new ONDA fork actually act as sails that favour forward movement in crosswind conditions – an effect that is amplified as the wind gets stronger.
Every detail of the DOGMA F has been refined for improved airflow, from the improved front fork section that cuts through the air to the new rear triangle that channels airflow harmoniously out the back, making it 4.8% more aerodynamic in the disc version compared to the DOGMA F12.
Seven of the last 11 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.
