Pinarello road bikes are often anything but normal. See one going down the road, and it’s easy to figure out if a bike is a Pinarello based off it’s Onda design language, especially with the 2019 Pinarello Dyodo Force Disk pedal-assist road bike. What’s not as easy to see is that this is a pedal-assist road bike that offers the very latest in technology. E-road bikes are no longer hulking systems, but the Dyodo e-road bike is simply a Pinarello with a touch more support during the ride.
Pinarello claims that the demands are the same as a classic road cyclist: lightness, rigidity, and speed are key to a proper-feeling road bike. They achieve this through slick use of the Ebikemotion X35 drive motor. This uses a hub-based motor that offers 40 Nm torque and 250 W power, and offers drag-free operation above the 20 mph assist limit. Assist levels are controlled by what the iWoc ONE controller, a single LED-backlit button which is embedded in the top tube. From here, riders can select between three levels of assist, and see where their battery life is mid-ride. Need more information? Ebikemotion offers a companion app that not only offers battery life and power output, but GPS navigation and auto-uploading to Strava. Need more battery life? Pinarello will offer a 250 Wh battery pack mountable on the downtube and seattube.
Accompanying the stealthy motor is a 250 Wh battery that offers strong performance despite it’s diminutive size (Orbea doesn’t make any claims, but many riders say that the battery gets 60+ miles of range with juice to spare). This keeps weight low (the whole pedal assist system weighs in at 7.7 lbs), and combined with geometry that mimics that of the Pinarello Prince road bike, makes for a bike that surprises in how natural it feels. The hub-based drive motor is drag-free when not offering a helping hand, but when they do offer a helping hand, assist is sneaky and well-disguised. Generally speaking, it’s not until you look at how fast you climbed the mountain that you see that there was a bit of motor-doping going on; it’s that good.
Seat tube angle, top tube measurements, and fork measurements, and wheelbase is the same as the Prince Disk. The difference comes in a 10% taller headtube, which ensures the Dyodo maintains the snappy handling of a Pinarello with bit of comfort mixed in. It also uses the same Toray T700 carbon as what’s found on the Prince Disk.
The 2019 Pinarello Dyodo Force Disk pedal assist all-road bike starts with the specially-designed Dyodo carbon frame and fork, as well as the Ebikemotion X35 drive motor. This is accompanied by a SRAM Force 22 drivetrain, a Mavic Aksium Disc wheels (tubeless ready), Pirelli Cinturato 700 x 28c tires, and MOst aero handlebar and stem. Five sizes are available (46.5 cm-58 cm) in a 960 Carbon Red colorway. The 964 Bob colorway will be available down the line.
