2018 Pinarello Dogma K10 race endurance road bike

Following in the top-level racing footsteps of the Dogma F10 Disk unveiled a few days ago, the new 2018 Pinarello Dogma K10 takes the race-ready frame construction and builds it around endurance-ready features and geometry found on the K8 series. Quick refresher: Pinarello unveiled the K8 suspension road bike for the 2015 spring classics. Then they added the entry level Gan series with the same geometry as the Dogma K-series bikes. Then Louis Vitton Moet Hennesey bought them out. Then they unveiled the absolute premium Dogma F10X, followed by a prototype K8-S with electronically auto-locking rear shock, which is now offered as a production model as the K10S Disk.

Which brings us to this new Dogma K10…

For the non-suspension K10, it sticks with rim brakes, but borrows the important frame technology that makes it an endurance bike. The frame itself is upgraded to get that “10” moniker, using Toray T1100 1K Dream Carbon and their ONDA F10 fork.

Most important are the Flex Stays chainstays, which are flat to provide vertical compliance. The seat tube and seatstays use their aero FlatBack profile.

The downtube gets their flattened top side to shield the bottle from the wind, and the second bottle has multiple mounting positions. The fork legs finish with their ForkFlaps “wings” designed to improve total airflow around the wheels. As with most every Pinarello, the frame is asymmetric to reinforce it where its needed based on actual pedaling and drivetrain stresses.

Compared to the F-series, the chainstays and wheelbase are a little longer, and fork has a little more rack and is at a bit slacker angle. It fits up to 700×28 tires and comes in 440, 465, 500, 515, 530, 540, 550, 560, 575, 595 sizes in the three colors shown here.

  1. The funny thing is that this *should* really be the main seller of the line, even though every MAMIL and his dog seem to want the regular Dogma…. the headtubes on which are crazy short…..to short for all but the most flexible people!

    • You’re mistaken about Pinarello’s. Pinarello’s don’t have unusually aggressive stack/reach measurements.

      • He is still right about most non racing riders not necessarily needing ultra short chainstays and a less comfortable ride. It’s not like they are chasing those extra tenth of a seconds per ride.

        But most people don’t buy things for objective reasons otherwise ferrari wouldn’t sell nearly as many road cars either. People buy the dogma because it is a bike used to win some of the major pro races and it is more easily in their reach than buying and using the championship winning formula 1 or america’s cup winning boat.

  2. Pinarello’s don’t have unusually aggressive stack or reach for aero bikes, but this K10 only differs in having a slightly longer head tube than the “F” version and a slightly longer front centre so its still ridiculous to call it endurance geometry.
