Italian bicycle manufacturer Pinarello has been hand-crafting bikes for almost 70 years. Based out of the northeastern city of Treviso, their penchant for producing high-quality bicycles has seen them as the weapon of choice for the likes of Sir Bradley Wiggins, Chris Froome and, most recently, Giro d’Italia 2020 winner Tao Geoghegan Hart.
While the Dogma is arguably the brand’s most renowned series, the LMVH-owned label’s Prince has emerged as one of the most sought-after models in recent years. After disappearing for several years following a dominant few decades in cycling, the Prince returned in 2018 with an updated look.
Fast-forward to the present day, and the Prince finds itself as one of Pinarello’s more price-conscious race bikes, utilising T700 and T900 carbon. This slightly weightier frame weighs between 940g and 960g, yet with more weight comes improved resilience.
An internal cable system, FlatBack Profile and a max tyre width of 28mm results in an all-round more aerodynamic model, all of which creates that signature Pinarello ride.
Although designed as a racing machine, the Prince does offer a slightly more relaxed geometry than other more expansive Pinarello models, yet still ensures its fast, responsive and stable feel.
Available with either rim or disc brakes, find out more information on the Pinarello Prince via the brand’s online webstore, with prices starting from £4,000 (approximately $5,500 USD).
