Pinnacle is the in-house bike brand of Evans Cycles and the British firm’s range has been overhauled for 2017, with the introduction of a disc-equipped version of the Dolomite road bike, while the popular Arkose has been updated to cement its position as Pinnacle’s adventure bike.
We stopped by Pinnacle’s 2017 press preview to take a closer look at the range and caught up with product manager James Olsen to get the inside story on what’s new. Let’s start with the Pinnacle Dolomite.
The key change for 2017 when it comes to the Dolomite, Pinnacle’s aluminium road machine, is the introduction of a disc-equipped version of the frame. In fact, disc brakes now dominate the line-up, with eight of the ten bikes in the range coming with discs – only the entry-level Dolomite 1 and women’s-specific Dolomite 1 W retain rim brakes.
Cable disc brakes make an appearance on the Dolomite 2, Dolomite 2 W and Dolomite 3, before hydraulic disc brakes take over on the Dolomite 4 and continue through to the top-of-the-range Dolomite 6.
