Unlike many other bike brands, Pinarello doesn’t categorize its race bikes as aero or lightweight. The Dogma is a do-it-all bike ridden by the pros on all terrains.

The difference lies in how the bikes are specced.

The Dogma F, followed by the Dogma F12 is the top of the line bike and is specced with only the best components (eg: electronic shifting). Next in line is the Prince, which is specced with mid-tiered components (eg: Shimano Ultegra).

Sitting at the bottom are the Paris and GAN endurance bikes specced with Shimano 105.

The Pinarello Dogma F was released just days before the 2021 Tour de France. It’s Pinarello’s fastest and lightest performance road bike to date. It’s the bike that Ineos-Grenadiers will race on in July.

The main improvement in the Pinarello Dogma F is weight savings. By reducing weight in the cockpit, fork, headset, seat tube, and seat clamp, the Dogma F is 265g lighter than the Dogma F12 in the same configuration for a size 53. Pinarello also redesigned the (although subtle) fork, downtube, and seat stays. Combining these allows air to flow with less interruption, improving aerodynamics by 4.8% over the Dogma F12.

The Pinarello Dogma F is available in 11 frame sizes with 16 handlebar reach/widths and two seat post setback choices. This gives the cyclist 352 sizing options to get the ideal fit. As the top-of-the-line bike, the Pinarello Dogma F is only available with the best electronic shifting groupsets from Shimano, SRAM, or Campagnolo.

Pinarello Prince

The Pinarello Prince was a top-of-the-line race bike until the first Dogma 60.1. Since then, the Pinarello Prince sits in the mid-range of the Pinarello family.

At first glance, the Prince looks very similar to the Pinarello F12 in the frame shape. It inherits many of the Pinarello F12’s features, such as the downtube shape and total cable integration design. The Pinarello Prince has nine frame sizes with a slightly more relaxed geometry. This puts the rider in a more upright and less aggressive position on the bike.

The Pinarello Prince is specced with mid-range Shimano groupsets with either Shimano Ultegra Di2 or SRAM Force eTap AXS electronic shifting groupsets and in both rim and disc brake versions.

Pinarello Paris

The Pinarello Paris is a pure endurance bike designed with comfort and long miles in mind. Compared to the more racy Dogma, the Paris has a higher stack and longer reach, putting the rider in a much more comfortable position to last the distance.

The frame uses the less stiff, more forgiving TorayCa T600 UD carbon and is built with Shimano 105 R7000 components. Completing the build are Pinarello’s in-house components brands, the MOST Ultrafast 40 wheels, and Pirelli’s latest all-rounder tires, the P7.

Unfortunately yes. There are a lot of Pinarello fakes out there. Some red flags include buying from dodgy e-commerce or auction sites that sell or describe the bikes as OEM or direct from the factory.

Pinarello doesn’t sell its frames direct to consumers. To be sure, purchase one from your local authorized Pinarello dealer.

Pinarello quotes its frame sizes on the seat tube length (CC); measured from the bottom bracket to the centerline of the top tube. The best comparison of Pinarello’s sizing against other brands is to use the reach and stack numbers.

Pinarello doesn’t have women-specific bikes. Their bikes are available in a very wide range of sizes that will cater to more riders’ heights compared to other brands. If you’re after a smaller frame size (eg: XXS or XXXS), the Pinarello Dogma F12 has frame sizes for riders below 5’ 3” (160cm).

Pinarello has won the most Grand Tours among all bike brands in the past decade with Ineos-Grenadiers (formerly Team Sky).
