Love at first ride.
When Pinarello and Jaguar colluded to design the Dogma F8 Road Frameset, we knew one thing would be true. Whatever the technology, innovations, flashy tube shapes, and grand tour-winning design elements they developed to include in the bike, it was guaranteed to look damn sharp. And now this Limited Edition paint scheme combines the stealth aesthetics of the murdered-out, black-on-black F8 with white branding and the Italian tricolor. We like how the F8 rides, but we love how it looks.
Other than the limited edition paint scheme, this is the same frameset Pinarello designed in cahoots with Jaguar. While we aren't privy to the details of this partnership, it certainly bore fruit. The Dogma F8 improves on Pinarello's previous flagship bike, the 65.1, by mating its Tour-winning geometry with material upgrades and fresh tube shapes for a claimed 47% improvement in aerodynamics, a 16% more balanced feel, a 12% increase in rigidity — all while losing a claimed 120 grams of weight.
The Dogma F8's carbon fiber is provided by another proven industry partner, the venerable carbon geniuses at Toray, whose Japanese factory produces arguably the most consistent, highest quality, and safest carbon in the world. The F8 is made from an all-new Toray masterpiece: T1100 1K Dream Carbon with Nano-alloy technology.
While the name is certainly impressive, its application is even more so. T1100 is the current go-to outer skin for many modern aircrafts, and its stiffness-to-weight ratio is nothing short of stunning. Compared to a 54cm Dogma 65.1 — which was built with Toray's 65HM1K — the F8's T1100K construction weighs nearly 80 grams less while retaining the same structural characteristics. The savvy engineers at Pinarello and Jaguar didn't waste any of these gains, laying-up the carbon in order to maximize the benefits of these penalty-free weight savings.
The partnership's engineering expertise came into play through the use of CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics). Using Pinarello's existing 65.1 Dogma as a baseline, the engineers plotted 70 frame configurations and 300 CFD analysis cycles to realize the most versatile aerodynamic tube shape, which has been given the utilitarian name of FlatBack. This is an apt description, as a cross-section view of this shape reveals an ovalized face paired with an abruptly truncated back half. This shape manages the detachment of turbulent lamina at multiple yaw angles, reducing the drag effect of dead air in the tubes' wake.
As important as weight and aerodynamics have become in top-end bikes, power transfer may still be the most important aspect of a racing machine, and the F8 doesn't disappoint. Pinarello's asymmetric design philosophy is ever-present in the Dogma F8, as its engineers again restudied the forces in action as a rider sprints on the pedals, pulls on the handlebars, and muscles the bike through corners. FEA (Finite Element Analysis) confirmed that the 65.1 Dogma's asymmetrical design was beneficial in leveling the variances in frame deflection from one side to the other, which is why the F8's tubes have been arranged in a similar, albeit more asymmetric (16% more), layup to better balance drive-side forces.
Aerodynamics and efficiency are combined with comfort in the rear triangle, where a pair of fat, asymmetric chainstays are matched with the new Onda RS F8 seatstays. The seatstays are positioned low — meeting the seat tube farther down — and describe a subtle, sinuous curve as they travel from the seat tube to the rear dropout. This rear triangle makes for increased rear stiffness and better power transfer without sacrificing vertical compliance. It also effectively hides the brake cluster and allows for repositioned seat tube water bottle cage bosses. The hidden brakes confer obvious aerodynamic advantages, and Pinarello claims that the lower bottle position also makes for less drag.
The Dogma F8 Frameset is finished off with a redesigned Onda F8 fork, which enjoys a claimed 10% reduction in weight and a 40% reduction in drag. We suspect that the weight reduction comes courtesy of the T1100 carbon, but the improved aerodynamics are definitely the result of some creative cross breeding between the old Onda fork and the TT-specific Bolide fork. The new Onda's blades are slightly convex, which Jaguar's engineers say creates the sweet spot where air stays attached — reducing the size of the wake — without creating too large a leading face.
For all this talk of developing new technologies, the bottom bracket is one area where Pinarello has thankfully refused to "innovate," sticking with the classic threaded Italian option. It's proven, it's stiff, it's Italian, and it stays. That's not to say that the F8 is a last-gen machine — quite the contrary. Its internal cable routing accommodates either mechanical or electronic shifting systems, and the carbon Air8 seatpost accepts both Shimano Di2 and Campagnolo EPS battery packs.

First and foremost thanks for this beauty. I've been riding this bike off and on for the last 4 months. Alternate between 3 other trek project one bikes, Domane Koppengerg, Emonda SLR and Madone 9.9. I usually ride the bikes a week at a time.
My Pinarello F8 is very fast, climbs great and descends are fun and comfortable. Frame is very stiff and responsive. Enjoy riding my F8 and have fun on long rides. If your in the market for a great frame I highly recommend on this great investment. Thanks again Wes.
