Assessment: Pinarello Dogma Jersey & Bibshorts


The phrases “Pinarello Dogma” conjure up photographs of Ineos (and Sky earlier than them) on the entrance of the peloton churning out an infernal tempo using the most recent and largest incarnation of the Pinarello Dogma motorbike. Nevertheless it’s additionally a moniker Pinarello makes use of for his or her top rate biking package. Given the chance, PEZ’s resident garments horse needed to have a pass in it.

The Dogma package comes well packed

There are precisely two items of clothes within the Pinarello Dogma package lineup: jersey and bib shorts. You’ll have both black or military within the jersey. The bibs are available in simply black. PEZ went the murdered out black direction aka Group Cinzano within the film Breaking Away. Admittedly now not the perfect viz, however it is going with the whole lot and is set as vintage/stylish because it will get.

Dogma Jersey – $214


The Dogma Jersey is composed of 4 panels:

  • Entrance (hooked up through a full-length semi-beefy zipper)
  • Again
  • Two aspect panels


  • Raglan uncooked minimize sleeves
  • Low minimize collar
  • Gripper hem with silicone dots

And all of the seams are cushy serge stitched. In different phrases, a attempted and true design/building that works. Particularly, the raglan sleeves have a tendency to evolve higher to the curvature of your shoulder/arm when in a extra aero using place. And the v-neck collar doesn’t put force for your throat making it simply that a lot more uncomplicated to respire. #marginalgains


The entrance, again and aspect panels are what I name a “micro mesh” materials for venting/wicking. The sleeves are a extra “cast” materials with a honeycomb development.

Pinarello makes use of what it calls Dragzero material within the sleeves that has been advanced in wind tunnel checking out to scale back drag #aero #marginalgains

No doubt at the lighter aspect of items

Have compatibility-wise, the Dogma Jersey in measurement small are compatible me (5’8″, 130 kilos, ectomorph) snugly however now not overly tight. What I’d name “comfy race are compatible.”

In fact, it’s a full-zip jersey as a result of is there the rest?

Dogma Bibshort – $321


Just like the Dogma Jersey, the Dogma Bibshort is a attempted and true, don’t repair what isn’t damaged design. The shorts a part of the bibshort are (if I counted and saved observe appropriately) 8 panels (the legs have dart panels). The bibs section have 5 panels plus the uncooked minimize, lay flat bib straps. Pinarello has obviously followed the philosophy that extra panels are higher to get a greater are compatible.


Additionally just like the Dogma Jersey, the Dogma Bibshort is multi-material building. Significantly, the legs of the bibshort use what Pinarello calls “stamina material stretch” for prime compression. It’s additionally DWR (sturdy water repellent) handled.

Vented again panel and vast, lay flat bib straps for a comfy are compatible. And simply if you forgot the place the package got here from.

Mild gripper for the legs

Since the weight weenies will wish to know

In fact, not one of the above issues if the pad/chamois isn’t as much as snuff. Pinarello makes use of a 4-layer, multi-material, multi-density pad:

  • 1st LAYER (in touch with the surface) – Microfiber material with antibacterial and hydrophilic qualities
  • second LAYER – Cushy and elastic open-cell, reticulated foam, 4mm thick, density 75 kg / m3
  • third LAYEROpen-cell top density foam, 4mm thick, density 120 kg / m3
  • 4th LAYEROpen-cell “filter out” foam, 8mm thick, density 100 kg / m3
  • General peak of the completed pad 13  / 14mm in overall

That is the cash with regards to any pair of bib shorts

Just like the jersey, the Dogma Bibshorts have been a comfy race are compatible for me. There was once some pulling and tugging to get them on, however now not like a few of my spray-on 2nd pores and skin are compatible race bibs which are like coming into a couple of uber tight thin denims. I may just really feel the compression however it wasn’t squeezing me like a sausage casing.


Baselayer – $64


Now not a work of Dogma branded package, however I really like Pinarello’s base layer. In case you get it in white, it has “we are living for biking” at the entrance. PEZ examined the orange which says “finish of debate.” As base layers pass, it’s a base layer.  Which means an open mesh design to vent/wick. Once more, a attempted and true design that works.


Light-weight Socks – $19


In any case, PEZ were given a couple of Pinarello socks. White. ‘Nuff stated. I put on US measurement 9 (most often Euro measurement 42 however the sizing can range relying at the shoe producer) and the 40/43 socks are compatible me simply advantageous. In my opinion, I’d’ve favored a little bit extra compression however had no problems with the socks staying up/in position (additionally helped through the highest bands being double-cuffed).


Feets don’t fail me now!

White on white is set as stylish because it will get

Driving in Dogma however now not on a Dogma

My first trip within the Dogma package was once on a quick and flowing 56 mile trip the place it was once 60-something (F) on the trip get started however were given into the 80s (with some humidity) all the way through the trip.  Now not a standard Babylon at the Potomac canine days of summer season sizzling and humid day, however extra heat than now not. However the Pinarello Dogma package was once greater than as much as snuff throughout a 20 stage temperature vary. The micro mesh materials within the jersey supplied numerous venting/cooling/wicking. Even supposing the leg grippers within the bib shorts aren’t tremendous vast, that they had greater than sufficient compression and no creep with out the scary sausage impact. And the pad supplied a “disappeared beneath me” degree of convenience that I may just’ve ridden in/on for much longer.

If you’ll’t trip on a Pinarello Dogma, using in Dogma package is most definitely the following very best factor.

Is it sacrilegious to trip in Pinarello package however now not on a Pinarello?
