Built from the ultimate carbon fiber, 50HM1K, the Prince represents the next generation of professional-level racing frames.
The monocoque construction allows the 'tubes' to flow together, offering additional strength and stiffness where it is desired while allowing excess weight to be carved away where it is not needed.
The final shape was determined through much computer modeling by Pinarello. This has allowed them to take into account the critical regions of compression and tension in the frame and, through multi-shaping and external ribbing, spread these forces over a larger area, thus reducing their effect on frame longevity as well as improving ride comfort.
The chainstays are shaped so that they are extremely resistant to lateral forces, helping to ensure optimal stiffness of the bottom bracket region, but are not so stiff vertically as to increase the transmission of road vibrations to the rider.
The ONDA FPX fork, which has a tapered steerer tube giving the additional support of a 1-1/4' lower bearing which helps stiffen the entire front end and, in conjunction with the newly designed headtube, gives the utmost in responsiveness to rider input.
The additional 'wave' in the ONDA FPX fork, as well as the seatstays, helps increase the comfort level without detracting from the responsiveness of the frameset
