PARIS is another big news for 2011 from Pinarello.
DOGMA marked the new Pinarello construction philosophy: total asymmetry.
PARIS has construction features identical to DOGMA: it is produced using the
EPS system and employs the Torayca 50HM1.5K Carbon with Nanoalloy
technology. The visual differences
compared to DOGMA are the absence
of the narrowing on the fork, on the seat
stay, and on the sensitive parts of the frame,
and the chain stays that are straight instead of curved.
Designed and constructed with the Pinarello LAB’s SOE System
(Simulation, Optimize, Evolution), Paris is compact and has harmonious
lines. PARIS mounts the Onda™ FPK fork derived from the DOGMA FPX1,
with 1 1/8” to 1 1/4” coning on the fork head. Onda™ FPK rear monostay,
asymmetric rear forks, and our tried and true Most® Croxover oversize bottom
bracket. The raw frame size 54 weighs approximately 1040 grams. PARIS
Asymmetric considerably raises the quality level of bikes considered by price
to be “second-tier”, and its structural characteristics, the materials used, and
the construction technologies applied situate it well above the multi-awarded
PRINCE of 2009 and therefore much higher than other frames of its price segment.
PARIS with fifirst-tier outfifitting can be considered an absolute TOP of the range.
Sold as either a complete bicycle or frameset alone, with special attention given
to the colour scheme, with 5 hand-painted colours available, and a host
of exclusive Most® components. PARIS will be available in 10 sizes.
