Een nep Pinarello bestaat uit een zeer slechte kwaliteit Carbon met onderdelen die absoluut zeer gevaarlijk zijn om gebruik van te maken.

Pinarello Italië waarschuwt ook op hun site om absoluut geen Fake / Replica aan te schaffen en zij zullen zoveel mogelijk maatregelen treffen om de nep fietsen uit de handel te bannen.

1. Counterfeiters usually hide behind E-COMMERCE PLATFORMS AND ONLINE AUCTIONS sites.

2. The counterfeiters often pretend to be contractors OR official manufacturers/factories for Pinarello, the OEM Factory. Recall that CICLI PINARELLO SPA head office and production facility that DO NOT SELL FRAMES ONLINE

3. The counterfeiters do not offer an OFFICIAL PINARELLO WARRANTY, a one and only document recognized by Pinarello. Cicli Pinarello grants a 2-year warranty. You can extend the warranty to 3 years registering the serial number in our website within 10 days of purchase. This procedure will grant you at the same time that the frame is original.

4. If you decide to buy a used Pinarello via the INTERNET, and it is not possible to visit the seller, it is crucial you request the PINARELLO SERIAL NUMBER which is located under the bottom bracket. In addition request for a photo of this serial number and a copy of the Official Pinarello Warranty Documents. A quick cross-check via one of our Pinarello Points can immediately verify if the Frame is Original or False.

“We have analyzed several FALSE frames which have been confiscated via International Customs Authorities. These frames have been passed through the most elementary of resistance testing. The results showed worrying structural failures that can cause serious damage and / or death to the rider.”
