Pinarello Dogma XC 2024 off road test pros and cons review everything you need to know (really)

Pinarello Dogma XC 2024 off road test review Build quality

The Pinarello Dogma

A bike that is overall at the top of the category.

Too bad the prices are quite high.

Pinarello Dogma XC 2024 off road test review Frame

The frame of the Pinarello Dogma XC 2024 is very well made, with modern geometries, a quality of construction truly at the top of the category.

However, a certain general complexity of the bicycle should be noted, which will have an impact on maintenance and management costs in the long term.

But this is a secondary aspect on a top of the range bike.

With these mountain bikes and this technology the high purchase price is just the beginning of the expense...

The weight is very competitive at around 10.5 kg.

Even if everything is made at the top, you pay for quality, perhaps a little too much.

Pinarello Dogma XC 2024 off road test review Assemblies

The assembly range of the 2024 Pinarello Dogma XC is limited and all versions have high prices.

On the other hand it is a top bike, made and created for those who want the top available on the market today.

The value for money is therefore just sufficient, the mtb costs a lot, but everything is top notch.

It's not a deal anyway.

The frame kit has a price, in our opinion, out of market and not justified.

Pinarello Dogma XC 2024 off road test review Comfort

Even if it isn't the best in terms of ride comfort, as an XC mountain bike it is more than valid.

Clearly it remains a rigid chassis, but the suspension work is excellent.

A good compromise for those looking for an XC mountain bike but still with good ride comfort.

Having said that, the ride comfort is valid.

Pinarello Dogma XC 2024 off road test review Guide

The Pinarello Dogma XC 2024 is a very intuitive, easy to handle and very high performance bike.

A rigid mountain bike, very reactive and fast, which requires a certain amount of effort in riding and experience to manage its reactions, which are quick and rapid.

The dynamic behavior highlights good stability, but it requires knowing how to manage at high speeds, it is not a mountain bike that can be driven with one hand and you need experience and riding ability to direct the mountain bike where you want.

The weight distribution is optimal, this allows you to climb even technically difficult routes with extreme ease, with intuitive control and excellent traction of the rear wheel.

But it remains a mountain bike that is not easy to manage on technical routes.

The relatively low weight, then, facilitates the most difficult and technical ascents.

The rear suspension works well, as does the fork, both sensitive to adjustments.

Stability and safety on descents are just sufficient, where performance is excellent in absolute terms, but not within everyone's reach.

Easy to drive on the flats, where the ride comfort is appreciated, but above all its high performance.

A perfect frame on fast routes and on hard, compact surfaces.

Excellent braking and, as mentioned, suspension.

A mountain bike suitable for any route, excellent for downhill, flat and uphill terrain.

A true racing bike, competitive on every route, but also demanding and not within everyone's reach due to the riding skills it requires.

Pinarello Dogma XC 2024 off road test review Performance

The overall performance of the Pinarello Dogma XC 2024 is very high and it couldn't be otherwise.

Low weight, rigid frame, excellent suspension, top components...

There is not a single element that can be criticized.

As a result, its performance is excellent.

It doesn't have an element in which it can be considered inferior to its competitors, it goes fast always and in any case, then you need to have the "legs" and driving skills to exploit this chassis.

Because, like all high performance MTBs, the stiffer, more reactive and faster a frame is, the more commitment and riding ability it requires.

It costs a lot but pays off with high performance.

Pinarello Dogma XC 2024 off road test review Pros and cons

The Pinarello Dogma XC 2024 proves to be a very high performance mountain bike with excellent overall quality.

It has an excellent frame, it's light, it's stiff, it's fast.

This is not cheap, this is its real flaw, then even the integrated handlebar is not the best for positioning yourself correctly in the saddle and in the event of a fall you risk excessive expense for its replacement.

Operating costs also remain high.

Furthermore, it is not an easy mountain bike to ride, especially on high-speed descents.

Excellent bicycle, but expensive to buy and manage, like other competing models.
