2018 Pinarello GAN RS Easy Fit Ultegra Bike
Though Pinarello have long been experts in making bikes in very small unisex sizes, they also recognize that sometimes you just can’t get away from the fact that unisex usually means made for men, and then any women it may fit. That’s why there is the Pinarello GAN RS Easy Fit which exactly matches the technology of the GAN RS unisex version, but with a tweaked geometry and has some women’s specific spec to go along with it.
That’s not to say that as a woman, you have to buy this version; it’s just giving you another great option to find that perfect fit. Everyone is shaped differently, but if you rather like having a shorter reach, and a slightly more upright position, whether you are shooting for your own personal distance records or just like to be able to sit with your hips rolled a little further back, then the GAN RS Easy Fit will likely be a great option for you. The GAN series is already offering a bit more relaxed position than the Tour de France winning F10, and then the GAN RS Easy Fit takes it just that one or two notches further. But aside from that, it is still just as great as the GAN RS unisex version. That means you will get the benefit from the Flatback tube shapes for a lightweight, aero profile. The GAN RS Easy Fit 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.
This Pinarello GAN RS Easy Fit also comes only as a prebuilt bike using the new Shimano Ultegra R8000. So you can look forward to the type of durability, stability and easy smooth shifting that has made Shimano components nearly ubiquitous throughout the pro peloton. And with the new Ultegra, you get all the benefits of Dura Ace without the expense. . The Fulcrum Racing 4 wheels will also be a great mix between performance and durability. Excellent training wheels, they can certainly do double duty of facing a Gran Fondo or performing on race day. And to add to the women’s specific nature of the Easy Fit, it comes with an Fizik women’s saddle so you can count on being able to withstand long hours in the saddle.
The Pinarello GAN RS Easy Fit comes in four sizes, starting with a 42.5 and ranging up to a 51. They hope that will give a great range of options for women and generally small riders. Being comfortable on your bike is most important and the GAN RS Easy Fit will do its best to get you there.
