2016 Pinarello Dogma F8 Disk
The new Dogma F8 Disk is based on the same Dogma F8 that Team Sky has been racing for the past two years. The new Dogma F8 Disk still retains the main characteristics of the regular Dogma F8 in terms of the geometry, frame material, stiffness and aerodynamics.
Sticking with its proven ally in composite development, Pinarello again relied on Japanese carbon fiber supplier Toray for the F8's build. While the 65.1's 65-ton 65HM1K Nano-alloy Carbon Fiber was a carbon more rigid and reactive than anything Pinarello had previously used, Toray had an exclusive new material for the F8: Torayca T1100 1K Dream Carbon with Nano-alloy technology. While the name is certainly impressive, its application is even more so. T1100 is the current go-to outer skin for many modern aircrafts, and its stiffness-to-weight ratio is nothing short of stunning.
Pinarello have opted for the new Shimano Flat Mount mounting system. The new Flat Mount calipers bolt up through the frame, rather than top down through the caliper. Visually this is much neater and hopefully it will be a little more aerodynamic too. Early adopters need not worry however as there will be a range of adapters available to fit existing disc brake systems.
