Pinarello is never complacent with their bike models. Every year, they make incremental changes that add up to monumental advantages. Over the years, Pinarello has won the hearts of nearly every road cyclist with their bikes’ build quality, beautiful design, and consistent winning ways. It’s not a matter of setting the next groundbreaking trend, but a level of consistent success unparalleled by anyone (or any brand) in the cycling world. The new for 2020 Pinarello Prince Easy Fit Ultegra road bike might not be a drastic change from the past, but it is part of a long line of incremental changes that make the Prince one of the best road bikes around at any price point.
The 2020 Prince essentially replaces the role that the 2018 and prior Pinarello Gan S filled; namely, a high-end road bike whose proximity to the Dogma F8 and F10 was underscored by a consistently nondescript paint job. People in the know knew you were riding a Pinarello, but those really in the know knew you were riding what was likely the best bang for the buck in the entire range. The Prince continues this trend; it uses the same Toray T700 carbon and basic asymmetric frame philosophy, but it pulls plenty from the newest Dogma at the expense of some weight and ride quality. At the front is the Pinarello Onda fork, updated with the characteristic fork flaps also found on the F10. The downtube receives an updated Flatback profile to come much closer to the Dogma as well, with the tubes further optimized for aerodynamics around water bottles.
One of Pinarello’s biggest updates comes from an update to fit 28c tires with room to spare (typically, Pinarello rim brake bikes fit a 25c max). Combine this with Pinarello’s typically-Italian road bike geometry, and the Prince rides about as well as one would expect. While it lacks the agility of a Dogma F10, it still feels seriously responsive, whether by handling or out of the saddle. There’s still that familiar feel, however; it simply wants to race ahead and carry as much speed as possible. Few other bikes on the market match this bike’s level of performance in regards to sheer ride performance, and even fewer bikes share this bike’s level of useable technology.
The 2020 Pinarello Prince Easy Fit Ultegra road bike starts with the updated frame and fork, paired to a Shimano Ultegra drivetrain with 50-34t chainrings and a Ultegra 11-28t cassette. Fulcrum Racing 5 wheels match up to a MOst Aero handlebar and stem. A MOst Lynx saddle completes the kit.
The Prince Easy Fit geometry is designed to accommodate shorter cyclists, particularly women. The geometry isn’t changed significantly, but the slightly shorter reach and smaller frame sizes make it more comfortable for anyone with a shorter torso. The 2020 Prince Easy Fit Ultegra is available in 4 frame sizes in a black and pink color scheme.
