Cycling Weekly Verdict

The Pinarello Dogma F seems to have put back some of the Italian style that the earlier, more data-driven Dogma F series bikes lacked. It's curvy and beautiful with a ride quality to match - and it's even faster: Pinarello's data shows an aerodynamic improvement over the outgoing F12 and lighter components shed grams off the frameset. Overall this bike is shaping up to be the best Dogma so far.

When the Pinarello Dogma F8 was unveiled in 2014, we were invited to a secret media camp in Asolo, Italy. We stayed at the Albergo al Sole boutique hotel, where Fausto Pinarello presented the new bike. Then we rode it with him and Bernhard Eisel, who was with Team Sky at the time, through rustic, terracotta-coloured villages surrounded by cypress trees out into the foothills of the Dolomites.
