Pinarello and tradition are two words that tend to go hand in hand. Tell us about the marque from Treviso, and we'll regale you with tales of Banesto, Indurain, and Dario Pegoretti's longtime relationship with Pinarello race teams. But...disc brakes? The traditionalist's deciduous enemy? The answer is an emphatic yes. Today in Day Five of our Twelve Days of Breathtaking builds, a smashing Above Category Dogma F8 Disc.
Before the flood of inquiries: No, this is not a stock color. Like our white F8, we applied the Above Category paint treatment to the frame, a deep Italian Blue base color with red highlights. It's accented by SRAM's Red 22 hydraulic disc brake group, Zipp 202 disc clinchers, and yet another fiz:i'k carbon cockpit. Surely, though, it doesn't end there. CeramicSpeed litters the build, even in the Time Xpresso 15 pedals (66 grams! SIXTY-SIX!). Oh, did we mention the THM Clavicula SRM powermeter with Praxis chainrings? Yes. This Dogma is what dreams are made of.
