TREVISO, Italy (BRAIN) — Pinarello has launched the latest iteration of its Dogma road bike, the Dogma F10, which is being debuted by Team Sky at the Tour Down Under, which starts Friday.
The F10 maintains the Dogma F8 all-around road bike characteristics, with increased stiffness, reduced aerodynamic drag and reduced weight. It has the same geometry as the F8.
Among the aerodynamic features is a concave downtube, which is said to reduce air drag 12.6% in the area when used with waterbottles on the downtube and seat tube. Pinarello uses a similar feature on its Bolide time trial bike.
Pinarello also borrowed a "fork flap" design from the Bolide, modified for use with QR skewers, instead of the bolt-on axles used on the Bolide.
The F10 continues the asymetric design that Pinarello has been using since 2009, moving the seat tube to the right to increase stiffness. The frame features a new junction area on the backside of the downtube to allow access to Di2 wiring and junction boxes.
The frame fits 25mm tires and weighs 820 grams in a size 53. Some models began shipping last month, other options will be available this month and next.
