Gallery: 2012 Pinarello Road, Commuter and Time Trial Bikes
For 2012, Pinarello revamped a number of their high end bikes to be Di2 compatible with internal wiring and, in some cases, hidden battery compartments. They’ve got a full range of road, commuter and time trial bikes on hand.
Above is the top-tier Dogma with its asymmetric frame and internal brake routing, too. This is likely the bike that Mark Cavendish is gonna have to get used too pretty soon…
UPDATE: Their Graal TT bike added at bottom of post.
The ROKH is one of their only carbon frames without the ONDA shaped stays that have become trademark Pinarello. Instead, it has inward curved stays that offer a bit more comfort, making it their century/long-distance bike. Pinarello isn’t known for lightweight, and this ones frame comes in at about 1250g…about what my 2007 F4:13 weighs.
Prince Paris remains near the top of their heap.
Opera is a separate company from Pinarello that they’ve used to build with alternate materials from companies other than their regular tube suppliers. This one’s the Super Leonardo and is made of 50HM1K Torayca carbon fiber. Fork is from the same material with a 1-1/8″ to 1-1/4″ tapered steerer. Frame weight is 1050g.
They also had a special Giro d’Italia Pink edition Dogma.
The FP Due is their entry level carbon fiber frame that still has the ONDA shaped stays and fork.
The FP Uno is an alloy framed bike below the Due. It comes as a complete bike with Shimano Tiagra and, even at this level, gets an asymmetric frame and fork.
The Only The Brave commuter bike is a collaboration with Diesel.
The Catena (Steel Chain) single speed bike comes in flat bar and drop bar variants.
The LungaVita is an alloy track bike-style fixed gear street bike.
The Graal (Italian for Grail) is their time trial race bike. They used CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) to create a bike that minimized drag by comparing its effect on individual tubes and sections as well as the whole bike.
The most striking feature is the 3D reliefs on the downtube, but it also has an integrated stem/handlebar with full internal cable and wire routing through the bull horns and tops. The frame is made in a standard and Di2 specific version, the latter with a hidden battery compartment, and it comes in five sizes…a pretty good range for TT bikes.
