Pinarello bikes: latest reviews, news and buying advice
Cicli Pinarello S.p.A. is an Italian bicycle company that was started in 1952 by Giovanni Pinarello. Based in Treviso, Pinarello is best known for its high-end road bikes, although it also produces cyclocross, track, mountain and city bikes.
Pinarello bikes have been ridden by a number of top pro teams, including Team GB, Telekom, Banesto, Movistar and Team Ineos.
Pinarello 2019 road bikes
For road cyclists there’s a huge range on offer from Pinarello.
The brand’s more high profile models include its flagship race bike the Dogma, ridden to Grand Tour victory by Team Sky. Its asymmetric frame provides maximum stiffness, while its flat tube shapes offer aero properties. Rim and disc options are available.
The Gan is more endurance-focused, with a slightly more relaxed geometry for longer and more comfortable rides. It also features an asymmetric frame but is less rigid than the Dogma. TT riders should opt for the Bolide, which is striking to say the least.
If you’re not ready to go pro, Pinarello offers two entry-level road bikes: the Neor, which is mostly aluminium with a carbon fork and rear triangle, and the Razha, which is fully carbon and designed for comfortable long-distance riding.
Pinarello 2019 mountain bikes
For mountain bikers, Pinarello has a few options.
The Dogma XM shares many qualities with its roadie namesake, with a stiff and super lightweight carbon frame that only absorbs the bumps when you want it to.
The similarly-named Dogma XC is a short-travel cross-country bike that also borrows elements from Pinarello’s road range. Its asymmetric frame system drastically reduces the shock from the rear for better handling and stability.
Finally, the Rokh XC makes for a more affordable option that retains a lot of the qualities of the Dogma XM and XC while dropping the price.
