Pinarello Gan K Disc review

The Pinarello Gan K Disc is an endurance bike with Tour-winning DNA from the iconic Italian brand

Cycling Weekly Verdict

Pinarello has captured the magic of the Dogma in a much cheaper bike that has its own identity and purpose. It’s not the cheapest for what it is at face value but, hey, it’s a Pinarello. Naming it after the Garden of Eden might be slightly overstating it, but the Gan K deserves to win Pinarello a few more devotees.

Reasons to buy
  • +

    Super-smooth ride

  • +

    Has the famous Dogma shape

  • +

    Easy geometry

Reasons to avoid
  • -

    Expensive for a 105 bike

  • -

    Low-spec wheels

What’s not to love about the Gan, Pinarello’s equivalent of fitting a Formula One car with your favourite armchair? Managing to cram in all of the features we love about the Grand Tour winning Dogma range, the Gan introduces a hefty dose of comfort to enable us mere mortals to access the same race winning pedigree. With the Gan you really can have your cake and eat it and it certainly belongs in Editor’s Choice.

The Gan is the entry-level Dogma-shaped carbon Pinarello but it’s more than just a cheap copy of the multiple Tour-winning bike Froome Dog, G and the rest of the dudes ride.
