2019 Pinarello GAN Disk 105 Bike
The Pinarello GAN Disk represents one of those perfect opportunities to buy a bike that is up to pro standards in terms of performance, but mixes in those little comfort and safety touches that makes it ideal for a regular rider, like most of us.
Not only does it add the disc brakes that have been slowly infiltrating the entire industry the past few years, but it has the same aero advancements that you will see on Chris Froome’s bike in the Tour de France, but with a focus on comfort. Making two versions of the same bike, one with disc and one with rim brakes, is not as simple as it may sound, especially if you want to lose none of the ride quality or take on a huge weight penalty. Pinarello has managed to make the GAN Disk a top performing road bike without adding an excess of weight, making sure the carbon layup can handle the different forces disc brakes exert. The GAN Disk itself takes its inspiration from the Pinarello F8, which results in things like wind tunnel tested tube shapes. The GAN Disk will have the same Flatback tube shapes for a lightweight, aero profile. The GAN Disk also uses Pinarello’s special asymmetric frame design which means that the drivetrain side receives a sturdier layup than the non-drivetrain side to account for the greater forces exerted on the side with the drivetrain. The GAN’s geometry might be a little more relaxed than the F8 or F10, but will still be aggressive enough to keep you near the front of your mass start sportifs or Gran Fondos.
Through axles have been included and like the F8 Disk, this bike has been designed to accommodate up to 25mm tires which Pinarello sticks with because they do offer the greatest degree of aero efficiency as well as low rolling resistance. The flat mount disc brakes can accommodate up to 160mm rotors, so stopping power will never be in doubt. The Italian threaded bottom bracket makes the frame not only easier to maintain and match cranks with, but will also avoid that press fit squeak no one wants to have dog their ride. The GAN Disk is available in a prebuild with Shimano 105 components and Fulcrum Racing disc brake specific wheels.
Hitting the road with the Pinarello GAN Disk guarantees you will be able to enjoy all sorts of rides over all qualities of roads.
