Until recently, plush suspension and disc brakes were things you'd only find on bikes designed to be ridden in the dirt. That's all changes with the influx of disc-equipped cross bike, a trend towards all-road capability, and a continued push to make the cobbled classics a little less jarring on pro tour bodies. Enter the 2017 Pinarello Dogma K8-S Disc Road Frameset. Borne from collaboration between Pinarello and the same Jaguar supercar engineers who helped design the legendary Dogma 8, the K8-S Disc pairs Pinarello's unique rear suspension with disc brake compatibility to set a new standard for rough road ability.Pinarello again relies on Japanese carbon fiber supplier Toray for the K8-S frame's material. It features Torayca T1100 1K Dream Carbon with Nano-alloy technology, which is the same material used in the Dogma F8. While the name is certainly impressive, its application is even more so. T1100 1K is the current go-to outer skin for many modern aircrafts, and its stiffness-to-weight ratio is nothing short of stunning. But weight, of course, is only a slice of the Dogma equation; we all know tube shaping also plays a vital role in the bike's handling and overall efficiency.Starting at the front of the frame, Pinarello utilizes its Onda Disk fork, with slightly more rake than the F8's front end to add a hint of additional compliance and stability to the ride. As with the F8's front end, the Onda fork is inspired by Pinarello's TT-specific Bolide, with an optimized surface profile that effortlessly manages airflow from the front wheel. The blades describe a somewhat convex shape, which Jaguar's engineers say keeps air attached, reducing the size of the wake without creating too large a frontal zone.The Dogma K8-S' front triangle closely mirrors the shape and aerodynamic profile of the Dogma F8. Pinarello incorporates its signature FlatBack technology with oval-front and flattened-back tubing throughout the frame and fork for an aerodynamic profile that sli...
