2018 Pinarello GAN S Easy Fit Ultegra Bike
If you are a smaller women, and have often had trouble finding bikes that fit comfortably, then perhaps you should have a look at the Pinarello GAN S Easy Fit, which offers four women’s specific sizes intended to address typical issues smaller riders face when sizing up a bike.
Though this is nominally a women’s specific bike, that doesn’t mean that any of the quality and technical essentials have changed compared to the men’s or unisex version. It will offer the same carbon fiber that the GAN S uses, which will ensure the right amount of rigidity for when you are looking to put in your race winning attack, or want to make sure you are getting the most out of your power when climbing a difficult hill. But don’t worry about this bike feeling like a bone rattler, since the carbon layup has also been executed in a way to allow for a great deal of compliancy, so that you can count on this frame remaining comfortable even through your first century.
This Easy Fit version of the GAN S also makes use of the advanced shapes of the tubes, inherited from the F8, and adding to the aerodynamic design of the frame. With the tubes using the Pinarello FlatBack profile, you will be able to enjoy the aero benefits without sacrificing the sort of weight compromise that often hampers aerodynamic frames. The GAN S Easy Fit then 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 internal cable routing will keep the frame looking sleek and the Italian threaded bottom bracket will also keep you and your mechanic very happy. The Pinarello GAN S Easy Fit comes in one complete build with the new Shimano Ultegra groupset and the lightweight aluminum Fulcrum Racing 5 LG wheelset. This is a great combo that will enhance not only the ride quality but the durability of the overall setup. A women’s specific Fizik saddle will do its part to help keep the comfort levels high.
Once you jump on a Pinarello GAN S Easy Fit, you will quickly understand what it means to have a frame builder design a bike specifically for you.
