According to Pinarello, there are six axis accelerometers and gyroscopes integrated into the frame, which tell the shock how to respond to road conditions in milliseconds. “The introduction of an electro-hydraulic control system establishes an important step forward in the technological evolution of our bikes, improving performance and increasing safety,” said Fausto Pinarello. This means that the new shock is a hydraulic unit, presumably paired with an air spring–a giant leap forward in technology and function, compared to the current DDS elastomer shock.This new system was raced in the Scheldeprijs by Team Sky’s, Ian Stannard, and will see action in the upcoming Paris-Roubaix. Pinarello says the eDDS system will soon be for sale on the Dogma K8-S, but there’s no word on the exact timing or price.
