Pinarello has expanded its range of Dogma road bikes to include the new Dogma X, offering adherents to the storied Italian brand a new variant that focusses on both performance and comfort thanks to a more relaxed geometry and copious amounts of tire clearance – now up to 35mm.
“Riders are no longer forced to choose between an overly aggressive position, or fitting multiple spacers under their stems, which reduces safety and bike handling in both circumstances,” boasts Pinarello.
Above and beyond new angles and increased rubber, perhaps the most alluring aspect of the Dogma X is its radical seat stay and seat tube junction, comprising an x-pattern bridge that’s buttressed by a pair of thin carbon tubes that Pinarello says are designed to reduce vibration in the tail-end – with the goal of reducing rider fatigue.
Elsewhere, the Dogma X features longer chain stays in order to increase lateral stiffness without impacting vertical compliance, particularly in the area of the bottom bracket, while Toray T1100 1K carbon fiber is used throughout the frame, resulting in slight weight penalty over the flagship Dogma F, tipping the scales at 950g for the frame and 400g for the fork.
The Dogma X can be had as a frameset only for $6,950, as well as a complete bike, with three builds being offered that span top-tier groupsets from Campagnolo, Shimano and SRAM, with a choice of DT Swiss ERC 1400, Princeton Grit 4540, or Bora WTO 33 wheels.

Additionally, the Dogma X is bolster by three lower priced variants called the X5, X7 and the X9, which use lower-grade Toray T700 and T900 carbon, with pricing starting at $6,000 for the X5, up to $11,800 for the range-topping X9, with all three models coming equipped with a Shimano Di2 drivetrain with either Fulcrum, Most, or Shimano wheels.
Here’s how the models breakdown:
