Pinarello has launched a road bike for 2012 called Rokh. Manufactured with balanced value and performance, the Rokh is claimed to be a full on race-ready machine. Along with the Pinarello’s 12K carbon used in the frame are the well-formed Onda forks.

Greatly designed, the frame is said to be a combination of the Kobh’s somewhat longer chainstays and relaxed geometry and the Quattro’s race worthiness. Such reliable features enable the bike to tackle any crits when needed.

From higher-end race machines, the 2012 Pinarello Rokh Road Bike uses the asymmetric frame designs. Aside from the the Movistar Team Replica paint scheme option, two kits will be offered, which are Sram Force and Shimano Ultegra both with excellent component specs.

The system’s chain…
