First impressions of the brand new Pinarello F7: Stunning, balanced, however wishes higher wheels and tyres

Pinarello has simply overhauled its highway vary. Long gone are the Prince (speedy highway) and Paris (staying power) fashions, changed by way of the brand new F and X collection. The F is there to cater to what Pinarello is dubbing its ‘Beat’ audience (as in beating different riders; aggressive using), whilst the X is there for ‘Play’ (as in… uh… play; taking part in). Head to our new-Pinarello information piece to peer the entire interior machinations of each the brand new levels.

I used to be fortunate sufficient to flee the appalling January climate in the United Kingdom and head to Spain to peer the whole vary within the flesh, and spend a while aboard an F7, kitted out with the Shimano Ultegra Di2 construct.

I can, in time, have a complete overview to regale you all with, however after 80 lumpy, demi-mountainous kilometres, plus any other 20 cruising alongside the seafront marinas (when in Rome…), I’m in a position to percentage my first impressions of a motorbike aimed squarely at the most efficient highway motorcycles section.
