The new Pinarello Dogma F10 evolves from the F8 model, but retains the F8’s flatback tube profiles. A fresh downtube design, inherited from the Pinarello Bolide TT bike, is designed to shield water bottles from the wind.
Pinarello say stiffness has been improved through further development of the brand’s asymmetric frame design.
The Dogma F10 is made from Torayca T1100 1K carbon fibre and Pinarello claim the frame boasts the highest tensile strength in the world as a result.
With a new concave downtube design, drag has been reduced by 12.6 per cent.
Dogma F10 is dressed in the Shimano’s new, updated Dura-Ace Di2 groupset – the junction box of which has been integrated into the downtube, ‘making it easily accessible for adjustment’.
