It’s a powerful statement in itself that a brand with Pinarello’s racing heritage was one of the first to come to market with an e-road bike.

But what’s more, the Nytro looks remarkably similar to Pinarello’s top-of-the-line thoroughbred, the Dogma – vindicating the Italian marque’s belief that there was no reason these previously opposed sectors of the market couldn’t be brought together.

The geometry is very similar to the Dogma’s too, with the intention that the Nytro should still handle just like a high-end road bike. To a similar end, Pinarello has used the Fazua Evation motor system and battery, meaning the Nytro weighs just over 13kg overall (size 55cm).

The compact Fazua unit slots neatly into the down tube, allowing Pinarello to maintain much of the Dogma’s aero performance, and is easily removed from the bike for charging.

The Nytro offers four modes of assistance, beginning with ‘none’ – ie, the motor is off. Next is ‘Breeze’ mode (up to 125W of assistance), which is designed to feel just like riding in a tailwind. The third – River Mode – ups the power to 250W, to help you stay in a group over rolling terrain, for example. Finally, ‘Rocket’ mode delivers its peak 400W to help you up the steepest climbs.

Sram’s Force groupset takes care of shifting and – thanks to the presence of 160mm flat mount disc brakes – confident stopping too.
