Dominer – The Downhill Charger
The Vitus Dominer marries the best attributes from their highly acclaimed Sommet platform, adds more travel and a downhill specific tubeset to create the ultimate race-ready DH rig!
With RockShox BoXXer World Cup triple clamp forks and RockShox Vivid R2C rear shock providing 200mm of travel at the front and rear, the Dominer will dominate everything in its path. Finished with race-ready components package such as a 7-speed SRAM GX DH groupset, Descendant DH cranks, Novatech/Raceface wheelset and 200mm SRAM Code R brakes, the Vitus Dominer is your ready for any downhill challenge.
Main pivot location – This is located in a forward position position, this gives natural anti squat/bob when pedalling in the most commonly used 36T setup without relying on excessive chain tension and none of the related pedal feedback.
Chainstay pivot location – This pivot is placed in line with the chainstay eliminating any force directed to the shock linkage causing the shock to compressing (pedal bob) due to chain tension. This pivot location also maximizes active suspension when using the rear brake; similar to a floating brake design, without the added weight.
Rearward Axle path – Because of the main pivot location the Dominer has 70mm of travel with reward axle path helping to keep your momentum over square edged hits.
Leverage rate design – The leverage rate is designed to have a falling rate to sag point then go mildly progressive; this helps the bike sit comfortably in the sag position with a stable platform. The lower shock mount moves forward with the suspension, this helps to keep a linear rate without falling off at full travel. This movement also reduces the shock angle change at full travel reducing side loads and improving the reliability of the shock.
