Introducing the 2020 Pinarello Dyodo Gravel

Pinarello is on a roll. Between the releases of the Dogma F12 race bike that refines a ProTour legend even further, the Pinarello Grevil gravel bike that brings superbike performance to the dirt, and the seamless Dyodo e-road bike, the Italian brand has been busy at work to overhaul and expand their line. New to the lineup is 2020 Pinarello Dyodo Gravel, which combines the know-how found in engineering the Grevil and Dyodo into one of the most compelling packages we’ve seen in quite a while.

The formula is pretty simple: take the T700 carbon used in the Grevil and Dyodo, and smash the two together. The Grevil contributes the dropped chainstay for increased tire clearance, the comfort-oriented seatpost design from the Grevil, gravel-oriented geometry geared toward off-road stability, and contact point. The Dyodo contributes it’s Ebikemotion X35 drive unit, iWoc ONE controller found on the toptube, and the 250 Wh battery stored in the downtube. One thing it doesn’t have? A toptube decal that says “Full Gas Everywhere” found on the Grevil.

Geometry plays a substantial role in dictating the character of a bike, and Pinarello went to great lengths to ensure that the Dyodo Gravel rides like a Pinarello. Reach and stack numbers are similar to what you’d find on the Grevil, with just a touch more stack. Pinarello managed to ensure that the wheelbase is only a bit longer than the Grevil, despite needing to lengthen the bike’s downtube to fit the battery. All said and done, Pinarello claims tire clearances of 700 x 42c, 650 x 47b, or 27.5 x 2.1″ tires. Par for the course, and plenty of clearance for the vast majority of riders.

We’re big fans of Ebikemotion drive units. They’re easy to use, surprisingly lightweight, and when paired to the iWoc ONE controller like this bike, are unobtrusive visually and in use. 40 N/m of torque is plenty for a vast majority of rides, and the range the battery offers is enough for 2-3 hour rides. Longer rides or those who use more of the bike’s assist might want the Ebikemotion battery range extender, which offers an extra 204 Wh of battery capacity.

Perhaps the most important takeaway we have here is how similar this bike feels compared to other Pinarellos, namely the Grevil. A 50 cm bike weighs in at 27.6 pounds without pedals; while lightweight for what it is, is still at least 8 pounds more than the equivalent Grevil. It’s fit measurements and angles are close enough that the bikes manage to feel similar at speed if a bit muted due to the extra weight.

As of now, there are few bikes that can match the combination of mystique, geometry, and pedal-assist propulsion of the Pinarello Dyodo Gravel. It’s an e-gravel bike that doesn’t look like an e-bike, with typical Pinarello design to further set it apart.

Will there be a 2020 version of the Pinarello Dyodo? The road Prince Disk version, but 2020.

Hi Tim. The current Pinarello Dyodo will carry over into 2020. The current specifications and colors available are not changing in the 2020 lineup. This is also true for the Dyodo Gravel bike. I hope this helps clarify, if you have other questions please leave us a comment or send me an email to cody@contenderbicycles.com. Thank you!

Hi Simon!

I don't know much about which bike shops are Pinarello vendors, but I do know that Pinarello themselves has a store in London proper. Perhaps they would be a good place to start.

They do indeed have several shops in the UK but they sell NYTRO Gravel. It seems that Dyodo is for the US market only. Is this the case? Can I have one shipped from the US?

Konesh,

The Pinarello Dyodo Gravel does not use Specialized's Future Shock, nor does it have space for a dropper post. Rather, it uses the aero carbon seatpost from the Pinarello Grevil gravel bike. The advantage of the Dyodo Gravel here comes in drivetrain choice, as the Dyodo Gravel can be used with a 1x or 2x drivetrain with a normal road/gravel pedal Q-factor. This is helpful particularly if you're using this for road riding as well as gravel, as the gearing will be similar. While the battery on the Dyodo is smaller (250 Wh), we have also seen range as far as 80 miles on one battery charge, and the range extender they have doubles that range. It also weighs quite a bit less than a Specialized Turbo Creo Comp Carbon EVO. Depending on what you want in a bike these could make all the difference, or not.

I hope that helps. Feel free to reach me via email at alvin@contenderbicycles.com with any other questions.
