Hayes Performance Systems releases Junit and Dominion A2

Hayes Performance Systems has introduced additions to its Dominion A4 brake –the Dominion A2 and Dominion SFL.

The Dominion A2 is aimed at the cross country and trail crowd or the “discerning rider looking for a lighter version of the A4”.

Also new is a brake lever option specifically designed for riders with smaller hands called the Dominion SFL. The D-Series rotor lineup now includes a 160mm D-Series rotor option. Dominion A2 features a two-piston caliper, while utilising technology from Dominion A4. In addition to the current lever, Dominion SFL can be used in conjunction with either the Dominion A2 two-piston caliper or the Dominion A4 four-piston caliper.

Hayes Performance Systems has also launched the Junit collection. The components feature youth-sized 20in and 24in suspension, wheels, hydraulic brakes, and a unique handlebar/grip system, specifically tailored for youth riders.

A key component of the system is that the Manitou Machete 20in and 24in suspension forks offer “complete adult functionality and adjustability, yet specifically tuned for kids”. Riders have the option of either a 20in or 24in fork to shred on a lightweight Manitou chassis. Another component of the system is the new SUNringlé Düroc wheels, offered in both 20in and 24in.
