Dominion In The News
"The Dominion brake is a winner in every sense.. If you are in search of a good brake, start with this one"
"I was pleasantly surprised by the Dominion A4 brake and I think most riders will be as well"
"I find myself recommending these to everyone that sees them on the trail."
"Overall, the Hayes Dominion’s performance was very impressive indeed, descent after descent we encountered nothing but consistent and precise braking."
"if you’re chasing the hand and arm fatigue gremlins but haven’t yet experimented with more powerful, easier to use brakes, consider this an endorsement from a weak-handed man who’s now less sore at the bottom of every descent."
Rotors and Brackets not included
Get everything you need!
Low Input - High Fidelity (LoFi)
Low effort system with predictable, progressive ramp up and a crisp bite point.
Loaded With Tech
Reduced Friction - A featherlight lever feel is acheived through a combination of an added glide ring on the piston and sealed ball bearings at the lever blade pivot
SRL - Our Stable Rate Link delivers a consistent lever ratio regardless of reach
Precise Engagement - Each Dominion is factory set to have the lowest dead stroke possible and a crisp bite point.
Built to last - Metal pistons are used to ensure that no matter the terrain or temperature your brake will continue to perform as it did on the first ride
Adjustable Reach - Adjust your lever reach with ease while on the trail thanks to an intuive adjustment knob design
Modal Resonance Cancellation (MRC)
FEA-optimized modal shapes of D-Series rotors are intentionally designed to oppose those of Semi-Met T106 and Sintered T100 pads, canceling out noise and vibration.
Best brakes on the market! Amazing lever feel!
Bought these when they first came out and thrashed a pair of them on enduro and downhill for 4 years with no maintenance except occasional bleeds. The rear started to wear out finally—leaking a little at the caliper due to old seals and the master cylinder was getting a bit worn out at the pivot points. Rather than rebuilding, I bought a new rear brake and a rebuild kit for the front. I’ve never been able to run a pair of brakes for 4 years with basically zero maintenance before…really good product. Don’t require a lot of finger pressure to get max power, so they help with hand pump on long descents. The 220 rotors are also awesome if you’re a bigger rider.
Every time I buy a bike for the family, I look and dream that they'll have Hayes Dominions on them, but I can't afford an Atherton Bike yet! I used to resist it, and believe "I'll wait until the rotor wear out and then replace it. But now I have given up, because the stopping power, adjustability, and easy maintenance can't matched! Shimano, Sram can market all they want, but they can't beat the Hayes Dominion Dream.
If you're on the fence, hop over to the side where you can actually stop, and just buy these bad boys.
I have ridden sram, Shimano, magura brakes and these are my favorite. Excellent power and modulation, and I find them easy to work on with the Hayes bleed kit. Was going to try another brake for my next bike but came back to these because I know how good they are
I have 3 E bikes and I weight in excess of 200lbs so braking is very important to me. I like a great grabbing hard biting brake and my Dominion A4 that I just purchased provide MORE than enough. I have TRP brakes on my other Ebikes and will be changing them over to the Hayes in the very near future. The TRPs are good, but I just like the power and light touch of the Hayes a bit better. If ya like easy pull brakes with great power and bite, these are the brakes for you. I opted for the 220 rotors.
