2014 Pinarello Dogma 65.1 Think 2 HYDRO
New for 2014 Pinarello has taken the step into disc brakes with the Dogma 65.1 Think 2 HYDRO. This combination pairs the world's nicest riding bike with the most powerful brakes known to mankind.
Pinarello's Dogma 65.1 is their flagship racing frameset which won the 2012 Tour de France. Pinarello modified the frame to accept a rear hydraulic disc brake and tuned the asymmetry to counter the forces created while braking. The Dogma 65.1 HYDRO also gets a redesigned fork to handle the forces created with the front disc brake. Rear wheel spacing will be 135mm to accommodate the disc hub standard spacing. The rear hydraulic cable is also internally run.
For 2014 the Dogma 65.1 Think 2 remains Pinarello's flagship racing frame built with Toray 65-ton Torayca 65HM1K Nanoalloy Carbon, the strongest carbon Toray has ever produced. This gave Pinarello the ability to lighten the frame without compromising ride quality, rigidity or strength.
The Pinarello Dogma 65.1 Think 2 HYDRO also continues to offer the integration of both mechanical and electronic groupsets in one frame. A frame like this will definitely see a lot of Campagnolo EPS and Shimano Di2 groups on it but Pinarello also wanted to offer the ability for mechanical groups to go on the same frame. This is where the "Think 2" part of the name comes from. So Pinarello came up with interchangeable cable stops for electronic or mechanical groups which both function and look great. All done with Pinarello's impeccable Italian style.
The Dogma 65.1 will carry over the 1.5-inch bottom headset bearing, the aero integrated downtube and fork junction, the Italian bottom bracket and offer slight refinements to the asymmetric design. Think Asymmetric is Pinarello's tag line and it all started with the Dogma 60.1. The Dogma 2 brought new refinements to the asymmetric design providing now for the third time with the Dogma 65.1 Think 2.
