First Look: Pinarello Gan

Some classic Italian flare

PINARELLO GAN

Straight outta Treviso, Italy, comes Pinarello’s mid-level Gan, which shares much of the same wild, asymmetric frame shaping as found on its Tour de France-winning F12 sibling. Available in three colors and a whopping 15 sizes with either primitive or disc brakes.

Pinarello modeled the Gan after their F8’s asymmetrical T600 carbon frame design. The Gan employs an aggressive geometry with a steep 73.2-degree head tube for sharp, race-ready handling traits.  Reach is massive on purpose at 39cm, to put the rider in a low-profile aerodynamic position.

A 50/34 charing and an 11-30 cassette stray from the race focused design, and give a bit more leeway for exploration on the road. However don’t expect to put too much rubber on; the Gan has a maximum tire clearance of 25mm.

Price: $3900
