2015 Pinarello DOGMA K8-S
The 2015 Pinarello Dogma K8-S is the all new game changer frame derived from the highly successful Dogma F8 and the Dogma K.
The Dogma K8-S continues the collaboration between Pinarello, Team Sky, and Jaguar Land Rover to create the best in aerodynamic, comfortable, lightweight speed machines. This innovative frame borrows from the aerodynamic FlatBack tube shapes of the F8 and comes with a slacker head tube angle and increased fork rake for better shock absorption up front along with increased stability given the longer wheelbase.
Major developments to the bike are at the rear end with thinner chainstays(which are wider horizontally for enhanced stiffness), an incorporated molded-in pivot point for the seatstays, and an all new rear suspension unit-- the DSS 1.0(Dogma Suspension System). The Dogma K8-S’s chainstays are designed for flex to allow almost 10mm of vertical deflection. With the help of Jaguar and test rides from Team Sky, Pinarello has created the perfect machine to dampen road vibrations.
In conjunction with the desire of riders everywhere, Pinarello has created a high end bicycle to ensure perfect riding comfort over rough terrains. Pinarello’s priority was to create an innovative frame that could improve rider isolation from challenging road surfaces and to reduce rider fatigue. With key insights from the pioneering aerodynamics and technology work of the Dogma F8, Pinarello and Jaguar engineers have applied this knowledge and experience in ride and vibration analysis to create an ultimate racing machine.
The Pinarello Dogma K8-S is the first ever UCI approved road bike with a rear suspension and Team Sky will take a fleet to the Tour of Flanders, the Paris Roubaix, and beyond. Weighing in at 990 grams, this innovative bike is vertically compliant and still stiff. Thanks to collaboration with Jaguar, the Dogma K8-S is the pinnacle of performance, refinement, and comfort.
