PINARELLO Dogma XC: MTB of the MTB World Champions available

The long-awaited MTB from cross country by Pinarello – Dogma XC and XC – are now available for purchase with both full-suspension and hardtail frames.


Both Dogma The duo will compete on Dogma XC at the 2023 Olympic Games in Paris.

Dogma XC and XC are Pinarello's first releases as part of its renewed focus on MTB. Both models feature the same key concepts:

Unique bottom bracket area
Both bikes offer extreme stiffness in the rear triangle and bottom bracket. This has been achieved on the hardtail versions by implementing a unique triangular design that offers maximum power transfer and responsiveness when pedaling. The full suspension bottom bracket areas also house an oversized bearing and pivot point for the rear triangle.

Split rear triangle
The rear triangle is composed of two distinct semi-triangles mounted on a main pivot point using a unique design where two pivots are molded onto the frames. This results in:

  • The elimination of the classic external "bridge" which allows the length of the chainstay to be reduced and offers better handling and reactivity
  • The elimination of critical mud accumulation areas
  • The ability to fit wider tyres, giving cyclists a wider range of options

Asymmetry
The rear triangle of each bike uses a patented asymmetric design with the left side strengthened, allowing the bike to counterbalance greater forces applied on the opposite side of the drivetrain. This results in more balanced energy transfer, improved speed and traction.

Asymmetry has also been maximized in other areas of the frames, with the chain and seatstays pushing this concept to the next level to withstand the powerful accelerations that are delivered in elite cross-country racing.

bearings
Custom-designed, fully integrated dashboards reduce weight and offer greater steering precision than a two-piece alternative. Fully integrated cable routing is also incorporated, as is a headset-specific bearing with an internal stop to prevent excessive handlebar rotation.

While the Dogma XC and XC hardtail versions were designed to suit the fastest race circuits, the full suspension models were designed to meet the following requirements:

  • Extreme rigidity in the rear triangle and bottom bracket to offer maximum reactivity
  • Simple but progressive kinematics to optimize travel and rebound
  • The ability to adapt suspension travel to the specific needs of each circuit
  • Lightness combined with exceptional riding and maneuverability to excel on technical descents

Stay flexible
Having only three pivot points on the rear triangle typically inhibits rear wheel travel, but the bikes unique geometry and integration of chainstays combine to allow for more direct travel. These innovations also save weight, improve rigidity and offer a better connection between rider and rear wheel.

kinematics
The rear suspension kinematics take into account the integration of the chainstays to maximize energy transfer during pedaling, provide optimal compression/rebound on technical descents and allow for maximum rider control.

Friction at each pivot point has also been minimized by using a mixed bearing/bushing system. Bushings have been incorporated as they are strong enough to absorb the high impact and low rotational forces on them, while bearings have been integrated where the opposite forces apply (low impact/high rotation). This translates into less energy dispersion, greater rear axle reactivity and longer system life.

The anti-rise and anti-squat values ​​have also been studied to create a bike that excels on both the steepest climbs and the most technical descents.

Adjustable stroke
The ability to move the suspension connection point under the top tube allows for different rear shocks to be fitted, accommodating a wide range of travel options and allowing riders to tailor their bike to the unique needs of each ride.
