As disc brakes come back around for pro peloton use, Pinarello is joining the party. Already approved for UCI competition use, the F10 now has a disc brake equipped sibling in the ‘F10 Disk.’ Very similar to the current Dogma F10, the bike does have a few unique features that are specific to the disc brake version…
Even though Pinarello has openly voiced their opinion that disc brakes aren’t needed for high end road bikes, that hasn’t stopped them from updating their highest performance bike with the new stoppers. Naturally, the brake area sees the biggest changes for the F10 Disk moving to 12mm thru axles (100 x 12 front and 142 x 12 rear), and modifying the fork and stays to handle the stresses of increased stopping power. Other details include an Italian threaded BB, 160mm flat mount disc tabs, ICR internal cable routing, and a max tire clearance of 25mm.
Pinarello says otherwise the frame includes “all the qualities and characteristics of a Dogma F10” including flatback stays, concave down tube, Twinforce saddle clamping system, and dual bottle positions on the seat tube.
Available in a full 11 sizes (44, 46.5, 50, 51.5, 53, 54, 55, 56, 57.5, 59.5, and 62), the Dogma F10 Disk comes in Mars Orange, Black Lava, Black on Black, Red Magma, and Team Sky. Pricing is TBA.
