Dogma XC Hardtail

Just like its full-suspension stablemate, the new Dogma XC hardtail is designed around an unusual bottom bracket junction.

A small strut connects the down tube to the seat tube, creating a third triangle at the base of the seat tube. This design improves pedaling stiffness.

The Dogma XC hardtail also inherits Pinarello’s signature asymmetric rear triangle.

The left-hand side (non-drive side) of the rear triangle is reinforced, which enables the bike to counter-balance the forces put into the drivetrain for a more balanced energy transfer.

The Dogma XC hardtail has taken this design even further, employing visible asymmetries in the seat stays and chain stays.

The Dogma’s cockpit is made of carbon and features a one-piece integrated design and internal cable routing.

To prevent the cockpit from damaging the frame in the event of a crash, the Dogma hardtail’s headset features an internal steering lock.

With modern cross-country race courses getting ever more technical and demanding, it’s perhaps no surprise to see the new Dogma XC hardtail boasting dropper post compatibility.

The frame uses a 30.9mm seat tube and has internal cable routing, should you want to fit a dropper.
