Pinarello Dogma 2 review

Pinarello Dogma 2
Cycling Weekly Verdict

The Dogma 2 is not only great in a straight line, it's tidy around the corners too. With an oversized lower headset bearing - at 1 1/2in - it makes for a rigid front end that holds a line well, especially when really leaning on it. Combine this with the aerodynamics and stiffness and it makes for a truly inspiring first outing. As you can imagine, the pinnacle of the Pinarello range doesn't come cheap, starting at £3,950 for the frameset and rising to £4,200 for the black on black with internal electric cabling.

When Pinarello released the Dogma 2 at the Tour de France last year, it could hardly have been a more understated way to put a new bike beneath two WorldTour teams. There were no flags and balloons, no PR people and certainly nothing to test ride. In fact it would have been amazingly easy to miss it.

Fast-forward to this year and getting our hands on a test bike certainly wasn't easy. When you look into it a bit further, you realise that Pinarello isn't the biggest company (it is still a family-run business) and it would seem that it is struggling to keep up with demand for these frames - but why is that?
