PINARELLO ROKH (SHIMANO ULTEGRA) - BLACK/RED

** The image above is for illustration purposes only. For the actual spec, please refer to our Specifications tab.

The Pinarello Rokh is meant to be the comfortable version of their race bikes. Not quite as buttery smooth as the Giant Defy or Orbea Orca OMR - it’s still got racing in its DNA after all - but more a smoother race bike.

WHO IS IT FOR?

The Rokh would be perfect for someone who doesn’t have the best flexibility and therefore prefers a more relaxed riding position AND wants the sharp handling and responsive ride that only a semi-race bike can deliver.

So why not just buy an endurance road bike?

Because they’re slow.

THE FRAME

Pinarello are masters of carbon. They design some of the best carbon frames in the industry. Just look at the F12, F10 and Prince FX.

Pinarello choose the type of carbon based on the design intent of that chassis. The F12 uses some of the stiffest (and lightest) carbon known to Man - because it’s a Grand Tour race bike.

The Rokh, though, uses the 30HM12 carbon. It’s not as stiff as Pinarello’s flagship race bikes, but it wasn’t meant to be.

30HM12 raw material combined with the appropriate layup, means the Rokh can absorb high-frequency impacts and deliver a smoother riding experience.

The downside?

It’s heavier.

But to combat that Pinarello uses their AsymSystem design on the Rokh.

What the hell is this?

The forces that a bicycle frame is subject to aren’t equal. That’s because there’s gears on one side of the frame.

To prevent unwanted flex (and therefore maximise efficiency) the Rokh’s frame is engineered to be stiffer - laterally - on the drive side.

So even though the type of carbon used does add extra weight, the Rokh is so good at transferring power that you don’t feel it.

THE GEOMETRY

Born from racing, it’s actually surprising that Pinarello has made the rider’s position so relaxed. The geometry chart below paints a neat picture of where the Rokh sits compared to Giant’s race-bred TCR and the endurance-machine Defy.


Reach is a dimension we should use (though is rarely used) when comparing how long the bike is going to be when you’re sitting on it.

As you can see, the Pinarello Rokh has the shortest reach - even compared to the Defy. So for those with poor pelvic or hip flexibility, this will be a really comfortable riding position.

Stack is another rarely used metric. Most people use Head Tube (length) but this isn’t accurate.

The TCR is a huge 23mm lower meaning (for the same size) it’s really aggressive. The Rokh is clearly the same as the Defy, so riders will benefit from a more upright and therefore relaxed riding position.

This is where the Rokh’s geometry gets interesting and you can see Pinarello’s need for balanced handling.

Head Angle determines how sharp the steering is. This time it’s the same as the TCR. This makes the Rokh easier to corner without being too twitchy because:

Notice that the Fork Rake/Offset is in between the TCR and Defy’s at 47mm. This determines the bike’s front end stability and self-correcting ability. The Defy is the most stable and the TCR being the least.

Chain Stay Length is also interesting. A longer stay will deliver a more grounded feel at speed but will also . A short one will respond faster to rider pedalling and power. The Rokh sits directly in between the other two.

ROKH COMPONENTS

The Rokh comes equipped with a Shimano Ultegra groupset. It’s the performance work-horse in Shimano’s range. Delivering many of the technical benefits and at a fraction of the cost.

It’s what most road enthusiasts tend to invest in.

The stock wheels on the Rokh is the Shimano RS100 wheelset.

This is Shimano’s most affordable 11-speed wheelset. It’s not the lightest at 1,920 grams - but nor is it the heaviest. It’s a robust, everyday wheelset that’s designed to handle the rigours of commuting.

Performance riders who want to get more out of the Gan S, may consider upgrading to wheels such as the:

DT Swiss PR 1600, 32mm deep at $1,048.00


Or:

DT Swiss PR 1400 DICUT OXiC, 32mm deep at $1,648.00


These wheels weigh 1,737grams and 1,630grams, respectively.

PR stands for Performance Road.

Wheels finished with OXiC are all matte black - even the rim braking surface. It’s a ceramic coating that is electrochemically applied to the aluminium surface. It’s several times more resistant to damage and wear than aluminium surface (and anodising).
