How aero is the F8? Compared to for example Venge, Foil, BMC TMR, etc

I've no data but it's not even in the same league I imagine.

More aerodynamic than the previous Dogma was about all they had in mind surely?

^ this is my guess as well.. I don't have an aero road bike in the stable .. But it would be my next consideration as long as weight it kept reasonable .

Thanks. That's kind of what I thought. Either way, it's an amazing machine and "aero enough" I guess.

Plus, I live in the mountains, so it's more about descending, then anything else...

I have both an F8 and a Cervelo S3, and can spot no meaningful difference in aero feeling or performance. E.g when maintaining speed over a flat road, they both behave very similar and I am actually faster on the F8 when descending. The F8 feels stiffer, have a slightly more compliant ride and sense of 'being on rails' that the S3 (although now i am splitting hairs as they are both great frames)

Not really sure but my guess would be close to the Foil. With the narrower head tube and kam style tubes along with Jaguar support for testing I doubt it's snake oil.

Take your power meter and do some field tests between the two.

The aero would be not meaningful difference comparing to the other bikes.

Bumping this up because Chris Yu of Specialized just mentioned "The Pinarello F8 and Canyon Aeroroad both also slot into that same grouping." (Talking about a +/-10s over 40km grouping of bikes including the S5, AR, and Propel)

So obviously very good aerodynamics wise.
