Product Description

GENERAL INFORMATION

Pinarello’s GAN RS demonstrates Pinarello’s belief in their technology. The GAN is a new line for Pinarello, replacing the Prince. It’s trickle-down advancements, as the frame takes its cues from the Dogma F8. Pinarello first tests the newest tech at the WorldTour, then refines it and introduces it to the rest of their line.

Aero has finally become a huge design concern for Pinarello. And rightly so: unless you’re riding in place, the wind is always there, and as you go faster, the wind gets exponentially more important. The FlatBack tube profile for the downtube, seat tube, and seatpost slice through the wind while not sacrificing stiffness and eliminating the weight gain typically found with aero shaping. The head tube is pointy to begin the wind separation with the leading edge. The fork crown fits smoothly in a notch in the downtube for greater integration. The Onda fork and stays have larger, more gentle waves for improved aerodynamics as well. And the seatstays join the seat tube well below the seatpost for both greater compliance in addition to the better aerodynamics. With all this new shaping, it’s easy to lose sight of Pinarello’s traditional asymmetries, which are still here, but not dramatic. They counter rider-induced forces to make the bike both more stable and efficient.

The aero features continue beyond the shaping. Internal cable routing is Pinarello’s Think2, which means the runs can accommodate either electronic or mechanical shifting. If you go electronic, the battery goes inside the seatpost. The post, btw, is secured with a Frontal Seat Clamp, an easier, if a bit heavier design.

With all the aero features, it’s easy to forget about the ride. Pinarello hasn’t. The ride is, if anything, better than that of the Prince. They worked all the shapes for both aero and improving the ride quality, which is traditional road racing, though there’s a bit less reach and a bit more stack than the F8-this is because most of us aren’t quite as flexible as WorldTour riders.

As this isn’t a bike for the WorldTour, Pinarello has done other simplifying, which benefits your bottom line. Besides the clamp and the shaping, the material isn’t quite so pricey. The carbon is Toray’s T900, not the stratospheric T1100. A little less stiff, an little bit heavier. And there are only ten frame sizes, not the thirteen of the F8, though there are four Easy-Fit sizes for those on the small end of the spectrum.

The Pinarello GAN RS shows how far and how fast technology advances for the benefits of the many.
