2019 Pinarello Prince EF Ultegra Di2 Bike
Though Pinarello has a wide spectrum of size options in the unisex version of the Prince, the Italian company recognizes that sometimes the geometry that works for men does not work as well for women. That’s why they offer the Pinarello Prince Easy Fit in four additional sizes.
With the reach a touch shorter and the stack a tick higher, the Easy Fit will work much better for women riders who have relatively shorter upper bodies and arms than male riders of similar sizes. 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 unisex version. It will offer the same carbon fiber as the regular Prince, with the T700 receiving the a-symmetric layup where 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 frame shape is the same with the Pinarello FlatBack profile enhancing the aerodynamics without turning it into a bone rattler. The Onda fork and seatstays will also help enhance the comfort levels softening the ride without losing the rigidity.
It will still be ready to offer a very responsive ride especially with the smaller rear triangle. Since the seatstays hit much lower on the seat tube it will tighten up the ride making sure all accelerations get the most out of the power you are putting down. While the handling will be as stable and sharp as ever with the Onda Fork. Pinarello has included their “fork flaps” which are essentially little fairings to the rear of the dropout to increase stiffness and enhance the aerodynamics.
Even though this is the rim brake version of the Pinarello Prince, it will still be able to take tires up to 28mm wide, which will also have a big impact on the level of ride comfort. It will also mean that a little extra gravel on the roads won’t be the least trouble. Many Pinarello bikes max out at 25mm tires, so this is potentially a great addition for those riders who had yearned for wider tires.
If you have typically suffered neck and back pain trying to make the unisex bike size work for you, jump onto a Pinarello Prince Easy Fit and discover how much more fun cycling is when you are comfortable.
