Pinarello have officially unveiled their 2020 collection, and it includes a lighter version of the recently launched Dogma F12 and F12 disc suitably called the F12 X-Light. You might need to work a couple of extra shifts to get one though, as the price is £6,000 and £6,200 just for the rim and disc framesets respectively.
The Dogma F12 X-Light uses Pinarello's Torayca T1100 UD Dream Carbon material, which results in a 100g reduction in weight compared with the standard F12 frame. This unfortunately means a rider weight limit of 85kg, so you'll have to lose pounds from your waist and your wallet if you want one.
Throw on a set of suitably high-end carbon hoops like those in the pic above and with a full Shimano-Dura Ace groupset, and you can work out what kind of ballpark we're talking for a full bike... most likely well exceeding the five figure barrier.
If you're not a bilionaire then you might be more enthused by Pinarello's new Razha Disc. They say it "provides signature Pinarello technology at a competitive price point", and it comes sensibly specced with hydraulic disc brake, clearance for 28mm tyres and a Shimano 105 groupset. The full bike is priced at £2,500.
Also new is the Prince FX disc (prices from £5,500) and the Nytro Gravel, an adventure version of Pinarello's Nytro e-road bike with Fazua's removable Evation motor and battery system - this will set you back £6,000.
The X-Light and Nytro Gravel will be available from selected Pinarello stockists from October 2019, while the Prince FX Disc and Razha Disk are available from July.
After cobbling together a few hundred quid during his student days off the back of a hard winter selling hats (long story), Jack bought his first road bike at the age of 20 and has been hooked ever since. He joined road.cc in 2017, having previously worked for 220 Triathlon magazine. Jack's preferred events are time trials, sportives, triathlons and pogo sticking (the latter being another long story), and on Sunday afternoons he can often be found on an M5 service station indulging in his favourite post-race meal of 20 chicken nuggets, a sausage roll, caramel shortbread and a large strawberry milkshake.
