Vitus launch 2019 Dominer DH Bike


The Vitus Dominer marries the best attributes from our highly acclaimed Sommet platform, adds more travel and a downhill specific tubeset to create the ultimate race-ready DH rig!

Leverage rate update – You can see that we have removed the regressive beginning stroke this helps with small bump compliance and plush feel, the remaining stroke has a consistently progressive rate, this can be seen in the forces graph.

Note: Dominer DH Metric = 2019
Dominer DH = 2018

Anti-squat update – This has been reduced to work alongside the new supportive leverage rate to give better bump compliance without pedal dive/squat
Anti rise update – We have increased this percentage to help with balanced feel when braking into corners.


The Vitus Dominer is available now from our retail partner Chain Reaction Cycles.
