We're used to seeing Pinarello Dogmas on the top of the GT leaderboard and on the podiums of classic monuments. It's true that Pinarello builds fast racing bikes but they also build endurance machines that probably best serve the majority of riders and these bikes receive no less R&D attention.

The Gan K is all about stability as it easily nails the apex of every turn and doesn't get frazzled over rough roads.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
