Pinarello have been making high quality road cycles for many years and have a strong tradition and large presence at the very top of the professional road cycle circuit.
The pedigree of Pinarello road frames is proven with an unbroken seven-year run of winners riding Pinarello road bikes in the Tour de France. From Miguel Indurain (five in a row) through to Bjarne Rhys and Jan Ullrich’s subsequent Tour wins.

The Pinarello Prince carbon is the latest incarnation of the Prince brand being made from a Monocoque construction of 50HM1K Carbon composite, 50 (High Modulus) carbon with a 1K weave finish. The Pinarello Prince frameset is supplied with Pinarello’s excellent and distinct wavy ONDA Forks made from the same 50HM1K high quality carbon composite as the Prince mainframe, also incorporated into the Prince frame are the Pinarello ONDA wavy carbon 50HM1K Seat stays. Both the Forks and Seat stays have been designed for racing and are exceptionally stiff and responsive but the wavy design gives added shock absorbance and greater comfort for long rides.
