Pinarello today presents its first model of a new era: Andromeda Hybrid 9.9, the first MTB of an unparalleled range of electric bikes.
Pinarello, who is always careful to the market needs, decided to enter the eBike market, since some years in very strong expansion, with a very high range bike designed specifically for most enthusiast bikers.
Pinarello evolved the concepts studied and developed with the Dogma XM and Dogma XC in a hardtail electric bike dedicated to the trail. Thanks to the choice of the Shimano mid-motor, extremely compact and lightweight, we have been able to maintain very racing geometries.
Pinarello Lab performed several test sessions and the acquired data led to the choice of 120 mm travel fork and 35mm stanchions; 29” wheels with 30mm wide rim specifically designed for eBikes and 3.0” tires; front and rear thru axles BOOST. These characteristics ensure the maximum smoothness on rough terrain, stability in fast trails and unparalleled grip.
The frame is full carbon, as one would expect from an high-end bike. We used the proven Torayca T700 carbon fiber in the unidirectional version, a symbol of rigidity, reliability and lightness. The weight of the bike is less than 20Kg, one of the lightest on the market, which guarantees an extraordinary feeling. The frame has internal cable routing, post-mount brakes with large diameters for reliable and high power braking in any condition and an exclusive carbon shield to protect the Shimano unit.
Everything is designed for maximum integration with the reliable Shimano Steps E8000 Series mid-motor that can provide support up to 25 Km/h with a power output of 250W and 70Nm torque to meet even the most demanding routes.
The 504 Wh external battery guarantees a long range up to 100km and 800m climb.
Pinarello Andromeda Hybrid 9.9 will be available in three sizes S, M, L and two different colors 194 Carbon Orange and 195 Carbon Sky Blue.
Within the multi-year collaboration between Cicli Pinarello and Alta Badia, Andromeda Hybrid 9.9 will be provided to the e-MTB sharing service that allows guests to move freely between the six villages on the plateau area. The service has 6 points for requesting and returning bicycles, 3 located in the villages (La Villa, Corvara and La Val) and 3 at altitude (Piz La Ila, Piz Sorega and Col Alto). Alta Badia was the first mountain area to create an E-MTB sharing service, and thanks to the collaboration with Cicli Pinarello, the innovation and quality of electric bicycles will have a further and significant evolution.
