Based on Pinarello’s existing aluminum Trionfo model, the Mercurio features a full carbon, asymmetrical frame that’s based on the brand’s original Dogma design.
Pinarello describes this unique frame design as an "asymmetry that creates more symmetry," and its effect on the ride can range from “unnoticeable” to requiring a “slight adjustment” depending on rider sensitivity.
The Mercurio is intended to satisfy a range of cyclists, who might be looking for something that has the sleekness and performance of a traditional road bike, while also being comfortable enough to assume the role as a "super-hydrid" or "city" bike.
Like it’s aluminum counterpart, the Mercurio comes equipped with Shimano Sora components, but with Shimano mechanical disc brakes and traditional drop bars.
Expect to see the Mercurio become available sometime over the next few weeks, with a reasonable price tag of $1950.00.
A Hybrid frame definitely out of the ordinary!
New Mercury Carbon is a new concept in cycling. Fast and agile with disc brakes can be perfect for the city, but it can also become a road bike thanks to its lightness and versatility!
