Now that embargo is lifted, the social media comments section is rife with sentiments of "Aero Marketing Fatigue" and "it's just the same bike again". Which I totally get.

But the most notable difference is the one-piece 34cm bar, that goes up to 140cm length and flares 40mm.

Finally. After waiting for over 10 years... a 1st party Tier One brand is finally offering integrated long and narrow bars that match the frameset. I get that blowing up the SKUs is an operations and testing challenge. And that sales of Long and Narrow options are probably projected to be slim. And that certain things in Road culture moves extremely slow.

So good on Pinarello to be the first major brand to lead.

Yeah, but with BMC that is basically the only available option...
I get it is more likely to see one of those on a Cafe than on a crit race, bit I honestly think Pina put the effort to build a proper and well-thought race bike.
Funny thing, but where I live, this, an SL8 or a Madone SLR are basically the same price...

We can put it this way, 34cm is definitely the new high-watermark for a major brand after Trek's 35cm.
