Derived from the F8
The Dogma has been a legend on the road, but Pinarello’s approach to design extends beyond their most premium bike. The Pinarello Gan looks nearly identical to the Dogma, and features many of the designs that make the Dogma F8 so good. Yet, due to less extreme engineering, and more reasonable carbon laminates used, the GAN series is priced for better accessibility.
Pinarello offers three different frame levels within the GAN range. The most premium is the GAN RS, which features Torayca T900 carbon, the same used on the original Dogma 60.1 Frameset. This high modulus carbon, paired with Pinarello’s Think Asymmetric frame design, result in a ride that is buttery smooth yet highly responsive. Pinarello offers a traditional rim brake RS, a thru-axle equipped GAN RS Disc, and an Easy-Fit version. The GAN S uses the same frame design as the RS, but replaces the T900 carbon with a slightly less expensive T700 carbon. With just a slight weight penalty, the GAN S offers great Pinarello handling and performance for more recreational riders. Pinarello also offers a gravel version of the GAN S, dubbed the GR-S. This new platform is designed to accept up to 38c tires, making it great for adventure riding on gravel and dirt roads, as well as rough broken pavement. Finally, Pinarello extends the GAN down to a sub $3000 pricepoint, in both rim and disc brake options. The Pinarello GAN 105 continues its use of Torayca carbon, this time using a more economical T600 level.
