The new Pinarello Prince 2021 is a quick bike, pure and simple. And it is as every bit of fun and jaw dropping in looks just like its older statesman brother, the Dogma.
Pinarello's pinnacle bike, the Dogma has been a dream bike for most UK-based riders since the original incarnation which was ridden by Wiggins for Tour de France glory in 2012, since then the style and prowess followed through into the Dogma F8, F10, and the current F12 that which have all been ridden to further Tour victories (5 at the tour alone!). The pedigree of Pinarello is not in question. But does it carry through the rest of their ever-expanding line-up?
Simple answer is YES!
You can now add the Prince to the same look and styling as the current F12, even down to the internal cable routing which Pinarello calls the TCiR. The Prince is fighting to become King of which we believe it could win in the war of the mid-range! It has a ferocious style, taking so many learnings form the Dogma such as the top has the characteristic kink on the underside, the rear stays that curve with precision, the more squared chain stays that give 10% more lateral stiffness...What's not to like about the look of this thing! In reality, this bike does a great job at emulating its bigger, more expensive older brother, and heres 13 reasons why you should look more closely and consider it as your next purchase...
