Summary of Reviews

We have read all expert and user reviews on the Pinarello Prince. In summary, this is what cyclists think.

14 reasons to buy

  • The Pinarello Prince has a stiff carbon frame and fork, ensuring the bike is responsive and confident through corners.
  • The rigid bottom bracket efficiently transfers power for accelerating and maintaining a steady speed.
  • Experts agree climbing in and out of the saddle is comfortable on the Prince.
  • The bike has a slack geometry in comparison to other road bikes. This allows riders to take on longer distances riding the bike.
  • The downtube is concave to promote greater airflow around water bottles for better aerodynamics.
  • Both mechanical and electrical groupsets can be internally routed on the Pinarello Prince.
  • The integrated fork and fork flaps at the dropouts make the bike more aerodynamic.
  • The seatpost is held in place with an integral wedge design. Experts were impressed that there was no slippage in this connection.
  • The aluminum alloy handlebars have flattened tops, proving riders with comfort.
  • The Prince has high and low options on the seat tube for positioning a water bottle cage.
  • The bike comes tubeless-ready.
  • The frame is asymmetric to accommodate forces on each side of the bike and reduce drag.
  • The Pinarello Prince has clearance for tires up to 28mm.
  • The bike fits a wide range of riders. It is available in eleven sizes.

3 reasons not to buy

  • The Fulcrum Racing 500 wheels that come on the bike are not aerodynamic. Experts found they were heavy.
  • The bike does not absorb road chatter well.
  • The gear ratio of the Pinarello Prince is not excellent for climbing hills or racing, according to experts.

Bottom line

The Pinarello Prince is a capable road bike. The bike has several features that translate down from Pinarello's Dogma F12, used by Tour de France racers. It has an asymmetric frame, internal cable routing, a wheel-shaped concave downtube and fork flaps. The Prince is not a race bike, though. Experts found the gear ratio was not ideal for climbing or racing. The geometry is slack compared to other road bikes. The stock wheels are not aerodynamic. This bike is available in eleven sizes, suiting a wide range of riders.

Pinarello Prince FX Disk Ultegra Review

The Pinarello Dogma has been a dream bike for most UK-based riders since Wiggins rode it to Tour de France glory in 2012. With the Prince FX Disk, a lot of those dreams can become reality as this bike does a great job at emulating its bigger, more expensive sibling albeit with a few compromises along the way.

Pinarello Prince

The Prince sits firmly in the middle of Pinarello’s opulent empire and yes, at $               you pay a premium for the name on the down tube.

Pinarello Prince FX Review

The Prince FX seems to be crying out for a wheel and tyre upgrade to unlock the speed I think it’s capable of, but in this spec, its all-round performance and comfort are good, but not exceptional.

First Look – Pinarello Prince FX

The geometry is slightly more relaxed than that of the Dogma F10 so you have a longer head tube and slightly longer chainstays, but this is still a very much performance orientated bike.
