Pinarello's new weapon: Dogma 65.1 Think 2

Pinarello has always set their goals to provide the absolute best road bike possible. After receiving reviews by pros such as Mark Cavendish claiming that the Dogma 2 frame is "perfect", what more can Pinarello do to the already "perfect" frame?

Read on to see more colors available as well as what differences were done to make the Dogma 65.1 Think 2 even better.

As the name would have suggested, the "NEW" Dogma uses the new 65-ton Torayca 65HM1K Nanoalloy Carbon. The new frame is expected to be "more rigid, more reactive, and even better prepared for the rigors of professional cycling" and all this is done while still being lighter since less of that "black stuff" is used to make the frame.

With the growing popularity of electronic drivetrains (Shimano Dura Ace Di2, Ultegra Di2, and Campagnolo EPS in Super Record and Record grouppos) and mechanical components still holding their performance factor, not allowing itself to slack off in comparison to the new-age high tech parts. It's more important now to have a versatile frame than before. Rather than having a specific frame for mechanical or electronic frame, the Dogma 65.1 is now dual purpose. Simply with a change of cable stops, the frame can accommodate both types of components. So whether you decide to build this up with electronic grouppo, or sticking to mechanical shifting, this is the frame that will do all!

The frames should arrive around late July/ Early August, but like all desirable high-end bikes, there's no guarantee that there will be enough to fulfill the initial orders, so don't wait, and place your order for your Dogma 65.1 Think 2 TODAY!
