2017 Pinarello FCX Cross
The 2015 Pinarello RCX is a carbon cyclocross bike with the handling of a top-end road bike and the sturdiness of your off-road racers.
The Pinarello RCX is a result of continuous research and testing in new materials, geometries, and systems. Every frame, fork, and component is tested on Montello and in the Dolomites. The FCX is derived from the greatly acclaimed Dogma K and has the responsive handling of a road bike with the help of its durable 30HM12k carbon. The carbon makes for a stiff ride, and that stiffness lends itself to superior handling, but there is enough give in the bike that you aren't burdened by feeling every rock and stone on the course. The headtube angle and the higher stack height also make the bike stable and easier to handle. In classic Pinarello fashion, the FCX Cross has an asymmetrical design. It is reinforced in the areas that take the biggest beating, strengthening the frame and extending the life of the bike.
The Pinarello FCX has slightly rounder and more curved tubing than the Pinarello road frames which helps for when the race situations call for shouldering the bike. The FCX fork rake and seatstay length are tweaked for a slightly longer wheelbase. The FCX has a slightly longer top tube and a higher stack than other cross bikes for a more upright riding position.
