Pinarello developed two new gravel bicycles, to add new possibilities to its customers. These bikes are intended for a wide use, from smooth and paved streets to the gravel roads. Comfort was therefore the main objective of the project and we used the same technologies of Dogma K8S, the bike developed with Team Sky on the streets of Paris-Roubaix.
First of all, we defined geometries that allow great comfort to the rider, especially on bumpy roads and long distances.
Then, on the rear, our engineers used the „Flexstays“ technology, with a flat and wide section to have a high absorption of vibrations in the vertical plane and torsional stiffness. In addition, on GAN GRS, the monostay has been replaced by DSS1.0, the elastomeric suspension developed for Dogma K8S, allowing 10 mm stroke.
Aerodynamics was also considered, since the main triangle uses similar airfoils of Dogma F8.
