Pinarello has been building super road bikes forever and felt that it was time to do something serious with MTB's. The Dogma XC 9.9 + Fox 32 Factory Spec Fork, is that Pinarello Mountain Bike.
It seems that every new mountain bike includes innovations that solve everything. You name it, be it durability, weight, travel, precision, handling, sag, sticktion, float, braking, shifting, climbing, descending, bad breath or dandruff, they leave the factory doing it all. Some of them, particularly some of the models from Santa Cruz and Specialized, are pretty nice but, at the end of the day all of them have been compromises. Until now. Leave it to the bicycle Elves from Treviso to design and build a Cross Country Hard Tail that actually delivers (except the bad breath and dandruff, they're Elves not Wizards. The Wizards live over at Campagnolo). Introducing the Pinarello Dogma XC 9.9: an Italian solution to all of mountain biking's little problems.
Most MTB frames on the market have an extended front triangle, the front triangle is extended so that the front wheel can rotate 360 degrees which solves one handling problem at the expense of a weaker and less stiff frame. Pinarello’s Dogma XC 9.9 front triangle forms a right angle instead, just like a road bike frame. This "PINAFIT"™ geometry ensures optimal lateral stiffness for you are pushing your limits, immensely improving your handling and safety. Meanwhile, “the ForkStopper™" protects frame and handlebars in case of falls, preventing impact with the top tube.” The PINAFIT™ right triangle and smart Forkstopper™ technology really do help make this MTB one of the most intelligent designs on the market.
Another innovation which helps reduce the shock from offroad cycling lies in the rear triangle’s design. Normally the seatstays are connected at the same point with both the top tube and the seat tube, which "helps" send vibrations throughout the entire bike. The Dogma XC 9.9 + Fox 32 (29er) MTB frame drastically reduces this by separating the seat stays both vertically and laterally at two different points slightly higher on the top tube and seat tube, the "ONDA XC Twin Arms Asymmetric™" helps dissipate vibrations evenly with out compromising for performance. The asymmetric, bifurcated rear stays dramatically reduce rear shock, letting you concentrate on more important things like staying upright and in one piece.
Built from Torayca nanoalloy 60HM1K carbon, the Pinarello Dogma XC 9.9’s frame is 59% stronger than frames built from lessor carbon fibers, virtually eliminating frame failures due to carbon failure and dramatically reducing failure caused by impacts. Pinarello has once applied their expertise in a totally new arena, to create a MTB that pushes the boundaries of what a hardtail mountain bike can do to match the boundaries of what a hardtail mountainbike Should do.
Assembled and finished by hand in Italy, the Pinarello Dogma XC 9.9 comes in three colors and four sizes. If you have any questions, please contact the Pinarello experts of Lakeside Bicycles at 503-699-8665 or by e-mail at Info@Lakeside.Bike .
