Product Description

Typically speaking, riders looking for the best-value in a road bike won’t even take a look at Pinarello. They’ll scoff at a frameset that costs more than $3000, much less any bike that touts an intangible like ride quality as it's strongest selling point. But in the case of the new 2020 Pinarello Prince FX Disc Easy Fit Frameset, Pinarello delivers much more than just a legendary name on the downtube.

The 2020 Prince FX essentially replaces the role that the 2018 and prior Pinarello Gan RS 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 FX continues this trend; it shares the same ultra-luxe Toray T900 carbon as the Gan RS and basic asymmetric frame philosophy, but it pulls plenty from the newest Dogma. 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. The downtube also receives their E-Link design that places Shimano Di2 junction boxes in the downtube to be easily-accessible. Unlike the Dogma F10, the Prince FX features a more integrated design with the fork that brings the downtube closer to the front wheel for greater aerodynamics around the fork crown and downtube.

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 FX 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.

If you're not familiar with Easy Fit nomenclature, it's pretty straightforward. Easy Fit refers's to the frame's geometry and construction being specifically designed for shorter riders, especially women. Stack and reach numbers don't change drastically; reach measurements are nominally shorter, which makes the Easy Fit ideal for those with a shorter torso. Besides that, the Prince Disk is a new model all together. Prince Disk Easy Fit starts with Toray T700 carbon, the same found on the rim brake model. It shares many similarities with the Dogma F10, down to the front is the Pinarello Onda fork, updated with the characteristic fork flaps first found on the Pinarello Bolide. 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. The downtube also receives their E-Link design that places Shimano Di2 junction boxes in the downtube to be easily-accessible. Unlike the Dogma F10, the Prince FX features a more integrated design with the fork that brings the downtube closer to the front wheel for greater aerodynamics around the fork crown and downtube.

The 2020 Pinarello Prince FX Disc Easy Fit Frameset is available in 4 sizes, and a white/pink colorway.
