2015 Pinarello Dogma XM 9.9
Pinarello Dogma XM 9.9 Dual Suspension + Fox 32 Factory Spec 29er fork is here, and my oh my, has the innovation that has taken place been gorgeously executed. Pinarello has a long history of making successful road bikes, and now the Dogma XM, a full-suspension mountain bike frame!
DogmaXM 9.9 is proof that by thinking outside of the box, true revolutions can happen. Thanks to the innovative SEO technology, the staff at Pinarello have once again changed up the norms in the cycling world.
This zesty mountain bike literally dampens only on uneven terrain, making the Dogma XM 9.9 and other Pinarello mountain bikes the only ones on the market that soften when you want them to, without a remote control. The engineering behind what made this offroad MTB possible is truly astonishing. The “rear stay Onda Curve Asymmetric has only 5 flex points, an extraordinary monocoque in which the kinematics function thanks to its exclusive carbon flexible arm that makes the quadrilateral rigid on even grounds and flexible only on uneven grounds.” Needless to say, having a mountain bike that only dampens on uneven terrain is a radical invention.
One thing that sets this MTB apart from all others on the market is that the front triangle is a proper right triangle, not some elongated triangle that sends unnecessary vibrations throughout the frame. Thanks to the PINAFIT design for providing lateral stiffness, riding the Dogma XM is just like riding a road bike, solid and strong, except you can obviously take it on much more challenging terrain. Just imagine all the places you could go with this beautiful bicycle; not only will your mind delight in the new ground, but your body will delight with the comfort of not having to waste any extra energy due to poor design.
Another quality that sets the Pinarello XM 9.9 apart from other full-suspension mountain bike is the seat clamp. Using 4 screws, the seat clamp becomes a single body with the frame, reducing “about 50% of the stress,” and also enhancing the bike’s style to become much more sleek. With internal cables - ICR - that have an “adjunctive hole for possible adjustable seatpost with remote control,” a central shock absorber, and asymmetrical design to perfect the Dogma XM 9.9’s performance, you can be sure you’ve found a winner.
