Pinarello makes beautiful Italian bicycles that win Tours. They are perhaps best characterized by their design philosophy, especially their asymmetrical frames, which has been applied to a full line of bikes from road to mountain to track. VeloTech is proud to be a premier dealer of Pinarello cycles.
Pinarello’s studies demonstrate that the behavior of a bicycle under pedal forces is asymmetrical, not linear. This can only be counteracted by an asymmetric frame construction. On one side the frame is perhaps too rigid in which case some material can be removed. On the other side the frame is too flexible and needs to be reinforced or made more rigid. Working with carbon fiber the task of increasing rigidity and flexibility in determined areas is facilitated with the type of carbon, quantity of material, direction of the fibers and shape of the frame all can be changed to achieve the desired result. Design of an efficient frame, with asymmetry in both form and construction is possible through a long process of advanced analysis, using the latest technological software.
