When an athlete needs brakes, he or she needs them immediately and the individually calibrated master cylinder reservoir cutoff provides for instant engagement via immediate fluid pressurization.
The STABLE RATE LINKAGE geometry of the brake lever contributes a great deal to the DOMINION performance as it confers great power that requires a very low force application to power applied ratio.
To ensure that braking force never degrades despite even the strongest force applied to the lever Kevlar reinforced hose resists expansion and increases overall power and efficiency
The KingPin design is a structural pad retention bolt that reinforces the caliper, and thus increases power, while keeping the pads in place.
Confidence Inspiring Performance
Dominion level performance derives from not only raw stopping power but through creating a system that inspires greater confidence and an overall better experience in the saddle .
Most solutions from other brands use bushings to facilitate the movement of the lever, the Hayes Dominion uses sealed bearings to require as little force as possible to actuate the brake, offering best-in-class, low friction tactile feedback to the user.
The piston glide ring, a technology first used in suspension forks, contributes to even smoother actuation
