Like a slow drip from a very expensive carbon faucet, Pinarello has been slowly releasing new bikes. One by one. Like the recently released F10, K10, and F10X, the new K10S Disk is a variation on the Dogma 10 theme – representing the pinnacle of Pinarello performance. A significant step up from the K8S, the K10S Disk includes the new eDSS 2.0 (Electronic Dogma Suspension System) which provides up to 10mm of suspension travel that is electronically controlled with sensors in the frame…



Using the electronic interface positioned on the inside of the downtube, the eDSS 2.0 system uses a small shock that is mounted between the seat stays and the seat tube. Relying on the flex of the chainstays and seat stays, the shock controls the 10mm of suspension with a hydraulic lockout system that automatically opens and closes based on input received by sensors in the frame. Alternatively, the rider can manually control the system with a button on the control center to lock or unlock the system for extended periods of time. It’s unclear whether the spring inside the shock can be tuned to different rider weights or if it’s one size fits all. The system is said to be both Bluetooth LE and ANT+ compatible which makes it compatible with the external remote that can be mounted to the handlebars, Garmin computers, or on a dedicated app which also allows downloading of ride data after the fact.

Using the same geometry as the Dogma K10, the K10s features a longer fork rake, slacker head tube angle, and longer chainstays. It also features all of the little additions for the Dogma 10 that make it unique like the use of Torayca T1100 1K “Dream Carbon with Nanoalloy technology,” Asymmetric frame design, ForkFlaps, an Italian BB, and 12 x 100 and 12 x 142 thru axles with 160mm flat mount disc brakes with clearance for 28mm tires. Available in 44, 46.5, 50, 51.5, 53, 54, 55, 56, 57.5, and 59.5cm frames, the K10s will have three different color schemes.

Interesting idea, but 10mm of travel suggests they don’t have a ton of confidence in their damper control.

Suspension on vehicles is for both comfort and control.

You’re welcome.

“There is no consensus on the difference between disc and disk, and in many contexts the two are used interchangeably.”

Yes, because a round flat item like a “disc” rotor could hardly be described as a disk :/

Pedant much?

I’m pretty sure a “disk” has not been going in a computer for around a decade.

I suppose that depends on your definition of computer. Pretty much any desktop computer still has spinning hard drives or commonly called hard disk.

Can’t wait to see the Chinarello attempt at copying this design.

Looks like we’re heading for planned obsolescence. Can you say GM?
