    Quantity:
  • The Dumont geometry is unlike any Catrike, It uses many unique parts which requires the design, construction, and alignment of numerous fixtures.
  • New technologies were adopted and each Dumont fixture is aligned and inspected using our new CMM (Coordinate Measuring Machine) to unmatched precision.
  • The Dumont has been through rigorous testing. Including, many test rides and geometry tweaks, FEA simulations of the frame, front and rear suspension. All of our designs are then validated with actual fatigue testing of the frame and all new front and rear suspension components. The Dumont frame, front and rear suspension has been through the design, testing, and redesign process several times. Each step of the way the components are tweaked and fine-tuned to perfection.
  • The Dumont uses an all new suspension material, Cellasto; numerous dynamic tests were required to experiment with the behavior of this material to achieve a truly optimized design.
  • With new technologies and designs we encounter supply chain and logistics obstacles that are being ironed out smoothly.
  • We know you are excited about the Dumont as much as we are. We appreciate your patience and understanding for the delays and hope you recognize; this time is being used to further improve this amazing product.

    The Dumont will truly be worth the wait.

    Catrike Dumont Review on January 5, 2017

    Finally, is the first word that pops into my head when I got my first chance to ride one of the Proto types Dumont trikes from Catrike. I saw one of the first nonrideable Prototypes over two years ago and I know Catrike has been working on the Dumont for even longer than that. Catrike did listen to consumers and dealers. Consumers want 26 inch rear wheel trikes that fold and have suspension. Catrike delivered with the Dumont. The Dumont is a totally new design from the ground up. Catrike calls the Dumont a “performance trike” which seems about right to me. The seat is 10” high, where the 5.5.9 is 11” but not like the Catrike 700 which is the “race trike” at 8.5”. One of my favorite features is the two transportation wheels. The Dumont can easily be rolled around the house or garage folded, then stood on end for storage.
    Frame: The frame on the Dumont is aluminum, TIG welded together in Florida. I would have to say the welds are beautiful and of the highest quality in the industry. The frame is constructed out of oversized, shaped and manipulated aluminum tubing. Catrike has upgraded the design from the Road which is their other trike with suspension. According to Catrike the rear frame is quite a bit stiffer even though the swingarm is longer on the Dumont.
    Paint: Catrike paint jobs are a work of art. There is no one in the bike industry that is better, maybe just equal to Catrike’s paint jobs. Their standard paint jobs are everything you want in a paint job; clean, consistent and durable, along with seven colors to choose from. Catrike does all there own paint work, and I will have to say I have never seen a bad paint job from Catrike. If you buy your Catrike in the winter, when Catrike sales are a bit slower, sometimes Catrike will have special color options or discounts on some models.
    Drive Train: The shifting is superb on the Dumont. Catrike chose a premium SRAM drivetrain combination with wide ratio 11-36 cassette and ten cogs in the rear and three in the front, for a total of thirty gears to choose from. The new SRAM GX rear derailleur performed flawlessly, mating the GX rear derailleur with the SRAM 500 TT Bar End Shifter and Microshift front derailleur. Catrike uses this setup quite often on their trikes. Bar end shifters are Catrike shifter of choice and mine as well. Bar end shifters just make sense for me. I feel they are easier to use than the grip type shifters you see on most other brands. Grip type shifters work fine. If God knew I wanted to ride a trike with grip type shifters, he might have put my thumbs on the other side of my hands. I feel I do not have as much control of my shifting with the grip type shifters.
    Brakes: Catrike chose my favorite mechanical disc brake system the Avid BB7 brakes with the Avid Speed Dial brake levers. This combination stopped the trike consistently and had no brake rub. I have no issue with the mechanical brakes that Avid offers. They are simple, reliable, and easy to adjust. A super convenient feature of the Avid mechanical brakes are that each brake pad can be adjusted independently so you can really dial in your brake adjustment. Catrike chose a simple Velcro strap that you wrap around one of the brake levers for your parking brake. I really like this because it is simple and adds no weight to the trike. This also allowed Catrike to be able to use a premium brake lever. ICE and Hp Velotechnik both chose to add a brake to the rear wheel and a remote shifter to control the brake. This works well but added almost a pound to the ICE and Hp Velotechnik trikes.
    Seat: Catrike’s last three trike introductions are all coming with the new padded seat. The new padded seat has been well received by customers and people think it is a premium feature from Catrike. The padded seat fabric is of very good quality and is filled with a somewhat breathable foam. The foam does seem to hold some heat but does add a layer of extra comfort. The seat height of the Dumont at 10 inches where as the 5.5.9 is 11 inches and the Villager 12 ½ inches. The seat angle on the Dumont can be adjusted from 42 to 49 degrees. I found the seat angle on the Dumont to be quite comfortable.
    Ride: So I am going to say this is my favorite Catrike and it is Catrike’s best riding trike. The ride reminded me of my daughter’s Mini Cooper S car. I love driving her car on occasion because it kind of feels like a mini race car and feels just glued to the road. The Dumont kind of feels the same to me as her Mini. Quick handling, light and nimble is what first comes to mind. Most of the ride characteristics can be attributed to the suspension and the steering. The Dumont front suspension comes with two different elastumers. Installed is the very firm elastomer for people 160Lbs and heavier. Catrike also supplies a softer elastomer for people under 160Lbs. The front suspension travel is 12mm which is not much when you compare to ICE which has 40mm and Hp Velotechink which has 60mm. The Dumont rear suspension travel is 50mm where as ICE rear suspension travel is 100mm and Hp Velotechink rear suspension travel is 100-120mm. The Dumont comes stock with a Rockshox rear shock which is a $200.00 upgrade on the Hp Velotechnik trike. The Dumont stayed with the same direct steering as all their other models as apposed to the indirect steering on the ICE, Hp Velotechnik and new Greenspeed, that will be out spring of 2017. Direct steering is a simpler design and seems to have a bit quicker handling feel. Even thought direct steer is not my personal favorite, I found the Dumont to handle just fine, the same as the other Catrike trikes. Not that I wanted to make the Dumont trike review a shout out between the three brands (Catrike, ICE and Hp Velotechnik). I found it is probably just the easiest way to describe the new Dumont ride. So looking at the suspension travel numbers you should easily be able to tell quite a lot about how the new Dumont will ride over bumps. If you are looking for the plushest ride, then hands down the Hp Velotechnik Scorpion FS 26. If you are looking for more of that quick handling and tight more aggressive ride and feel, then the Dumont and the ICE trikes fall somewhere in-between.
    In conclusion: I think Catrike will be very successful with the Dumont. Every year the stakes get higher in the trike business. Catrike has been left behind in the trike business with no good suspension trike, up until now. Yeah, they have the Road, but we do not want to mention that trike. The Dumont is Catrike’s new flag ship trike and will steal some sales from the 5.5.9.
    Pros: Full Suspension Folding, light weight, 26 inch rear wheel, OMG paint. Catrike comes with a very high level of quality components and some accessories like wrist rest, rear fender, clipless pedals and a mirror. You will have to purchase most of those items separately from other trike brands. I like that the seat angle is adjustable and the seat is extra comfy. I will have to say that I think the Dumont is the most aggressively prices full suspension trike on the market.
    Cons: 12mm of front suspension travel! What the heck were they thinking, not everywhere is as smooth as the roads and paths in Florida.
    Best place to buy: Your local Catrike dealer or www.industrialbicycles.com

    My Dumont

    Purchase my Dumont in the spring of 2018 and have been very happy with its performance. The Dumont is lighter that the other trike I tried and I like that it came with the bar end shifter and rear fender. I original thought the seat was way farther back than what I wanted but after riding the trike for a while I adapted the position and the seat angle is fine. The build quality is very good and I really feel that having the suspension was well worth the cost over the 5.5.9

    Best trike ever

    Cons:
    <p>The Catrike Dumont is an awesome trike, this is my third Catrike and I am defiantly a fan of Catrike products. My first was a Villager, I thought I wanted to set up very straight but after riding a while I found this very upright position no to be as good as I had originally thought. My second was the Expedition which was faster and more comfortable than the Villager. My latest trike is the Dumont and it far superior to both my other Catrikes. The biggest advantage to me is the upgrade in ride comfort due to Catrike adding front and rear suspension to the trike. Every bump just got a whole lot smaller feeling with the addition of the suspension. I feel the suspension does not compromise the handling or speed at all and is well worth the added cost. Second I like the padded seat, I feel it does give some extra comfort and the workmanship on the seat fabric is top notch. Third is the folding frame feature. My previous two trikes did not fold and was a major pain to try to break my trike down small enough to fit in my vehicle with our extra luggage. With the folding frame I can fold my trike in half in about thirty seconds and have it load in the back of my SUV. I love everything about Catrike products, Made in USA, awesome paint, components that work well together, I am a Catrike fan for life!</p>
