Although there are still some gimmicky lines on the frame with no apparent function (fork, rear stays, seat tube)...its a massive step forward I have to admit.
I will patiently wait and see what the feedback is with all these improvements. May even consider to buy one...

given Pinarello's optimistic weight claims on their previous flagship frames, I would be inclined to disbelieve this until I see the frame on a set of scales. I will be VERY surprised if a frame with hardware/paint in a 'normal person' size comes out below 1100g.

Not difficult at all. However, if you'd like to provide any evidence and facts to support your denigration, please go ahead, Mr Know It All.
This IS the replacement model to supersede the Dogma 65.1 Think2.
What made you think otherwise ?
That is the way I read it also. Can't imagine Sky riding a second tier frame
I agree with you, but on the other hand, half of the garmin team is riding S3s.

I always thought the squiggles added unnecessary weight. And I guess the squiggles were more disruptive to air flow.The new ONDA F8 fork has a 54% lower aerodynamic impact and is about 10% lighter than the ONDA 2.
I'm disappointed. I was hoping for Nanoceramics. Everyone knows nano is good, and ceramics is better than alloy, hence Nanoceramics is better than Nanoalloy.Our exclusive partner, TORAY has named Pinarello the only bike brand to use the new T11001K Dream Carbon with Nanoalloy Technology.
But most disappointing of all
I find schoolgirl sparkles and non-functional squiggles which add weight while increasing aerodyanamic drag to be exciting. Without these, how can I be excited?The DOGMA F8 was born to excite.
No, I mean the S3.
They have been riding them a lot lately.

It is even the bike they brought to the team presentation at the start of the giro
