Pinarello have released images of a new model, and this one is very different to what you might expect from the iconic Italian road bike company.
Re-entering the Mountain Bike sector, the new Dogma XC is light years ahead of Pinarello’s XT classic the Antelao.
Devised primarily for their allround star riders’ Pauline Ferrand-Prévot and Tom Pidcock to race the UCI XC World Cup, it’s a full suspension cross country development bike.
The Dogma will feature up to 120mm of front travel and up to 100mm of rear, with two different rear shock options available.
Overall weight and price have not yet been announced, and the bike is scheduled to be available to the public in March 2024.
Pinarello began developing the bike in autumn 2022 and underwent an intense period of testing with Ferrand-Prévot, Pidcock and the INEOS Grenadiers’ technical team. The company say the result is ‘a bike which performs to the highest level, supporting both riders when they’re out there racing and putting in their best performances during UCI Cross-country World Cups, UCI Mountain Bike World Championships, and ultimately whilst working towards the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris.’
Already a proven race winner with Ferrand-Prévot taking victory on the bike’s debut in the recent French Cup and Pidcock claiming victory in last weekend’s Swiss Cup, further testing will take place throughout 2023 with both riders continuing to be heavily involved in its development.
The Dogma XC will be available commercially in March 2024 and there is a second, front suspension frame also being developed to meet the demands of other World Cup circuits.
Key Features Include
The custom designed, fully integrated cockpit saves weight and offers increased driving precision compared with a two-piece alternative. Fully integrated cable routing is also incorporated, as is a specific headset bearing which features an internal stopper at 60° to prevent the handlebar from over-twisting.
The rear triangle utilizes a patented asymmetric design with the left-hand side being reinforced, allowing the bike to counterbalance the higher forces applied to it on the opposite side of the drivetrain. This results in balancing energy transfer, improved speed and traction.
