The Dogma F12 Red eTap AXS 12 Speed Disc Road Bike with Zipp 303 Firecrest wheels represents the Pinnacle of Pinarello’s impressive road bike range. Having enjoyed incredible World Tour success with the F8 and the F10, the F12 aims to continue in the same vein. Unlike the previous generations, this bike has been designed from scratch for use with disc brakes and reduces drag by 7.3% whilst increasing bottom bracket stiffness by 10% compared to the F10.
The component choice has been no less exacting, with Zipp’s renowned Firecrest 303 disc wheels and SRAM’s fully wireless Red eTap AXS 12-speed groupset taking care of shifting and braking duties. With its innovative approach to cassette and chainring sizes, the AXS drivetrain offers a wider range of gears compared with a traditional system and keeps shifting quiet and precise thanks to the Orbit chain management. The AXS app allows user customisation of certain functions and gives information regarding battery charge and maintenance. Pinarello is rightly proud of the new MOST Talon integrated handlebar and stem. The weight has been cut by 10% whilst cutting drag by 5% at this aerodynamically crucial part of the bike.
