For those of us not chasing WorldTour dreams and bound by fussing international governing body rules, the unrivaled stopping power and modulation of disc brakes make them the wave of the future. Given Pinarello's dedication to design and innovation, it's no surprise that it created the 2017 Dogma F8 Disc Road Frameset, a disc-compatible version of its venerable Dogma F8 dream bike. The disc version incorporates some changes, including a tweak to the internal lay-up and reinforcement to the brake mounts, all of which are necessary in order to account for the extra load of disc braking forces. These tweaks do come with a slight weight gain, but Pinarello assures us that it's hardly more significant than the difference in weight between paint schemes. Disc brake compatibility excluded, this is the same frameset Pinarello designed in cahoots with Jaguar. While we aren't privy to the details of this partnership, it certainly bore fruit. The Dogma F8 improves on Pinarello's previous flagship bike, the 65. 1, by mating its Tour-winning geometry with material upgrades and fresh tube shapes for a claimed 47% improvement in aerodynamics, a 16% more balanced feel, a 12% increase in rigidity -- all while losing a claimed 120 grams of weight. The Dogma F8's carbon fiber is provided by another proven industry partner, the venerable carbon geniuses at Toray, whose Japanese factory produces arguably the most consistent, highest quality, and safest carbon in the world. The F8 is made from an all-new Toray masterpiece: T1100 1K Dream Carbon with Nano-alloy technology. While the name is certainly impressive, its application is even more so. T1100 is the current go-to outer skin for many modern aircrafts, and its stiffness-to-weight ratio is nothing short of stunning. Compared to a 54cm Dogma 65. 1 -- which was built with Toray's 65HM1K -- the F8's T1100K construction weighs nearly 80 grams less while retaining the same structural characteristics. The savvy engineers at Pinarello and..
