2017 Pinarello GAN S Easy-Fit Ultegra bike
It can be hard for women to find an elite level road bike that works for them. Pinarello has realized that a niche exists in making bikes that provide the perfect fit for women and has come out with a bike that combines value, performance, comfort and fit thus making the ultimate women’s road bike at a value. Pinarello calls this bike the GAN S Easy Fit.
The GAN S Easy Fit shares a frame design with the GAN RS Easy Fit, the difference between the models coming from the types of carbon that comprise each frame. The GAN S Easy Fit has T700 and the GAN RS Easy Fit has T900. But to maintain stiffness, you need to use more of the T700 carbon on the GAN S Easy Fit and that results in a heavier frame weight and thus a lower price tag.
Other features that make this is a great bike is that it comes with Think 2 internal cable routing that makes this bike mechanical and electronic compatible just like it’s full sized sibling, the GAN S. Also, like all new Pinarellos, it has a 4th generation asymmetrical design. Because your bike is naturally asymmetrical, with your drive train on only one side of the bicycle, pedaling on a symmetrical frame will give a less efficient output. By removing some material on the side which is too rigid and putting it on the side that is too flexible, Pinarello has not only created an more efficient, fast pedaling machine, they also made a better riding bike.
The GAN S Easy Fit has been made to be extremely aerodynamic. Pinarello, in conjunction with Team Sky partner Jaguar, built the GAN S Easy Fit to slip through the wind with as little turbulence as possible, ensuring a smooth, fast ride. To achieve this feat the GAN S Easy Fit features FlatBack profiles for the down and seat tubes as well as shorter seat stays and aero fork legs. It has a pointy head for the head tube as well. These wind splitting features are trickle down technology from the world famous Dogma F8 ridden to two Tour de France victories by Chris Fromme. What makes it different though, and a perfect fit for smaller women is the reduced reach and taller stack. It is a bike that fits, a bike that’s fun, and it’s truly the perfect road bike.
