Odes dominator

Anyone heard of the Odes brand UTVs? My buddys dad just got one and is claiming this has the same motor as a Can am 800, Rhino suspension and design. Its hard to find any information out there but I know this is a china UTV, that is copying off the Big 3. They seem kinda expensive for being china made IMHO.

Not sure if the motor is the 'same' but yeah, Can-Am internals anyway...details are worded carefully. Could call these guys, forum vendor, who appear to be a dealer...

Odes dominator

Interesting. Thanks for the link. I was looking at the smaller models that look exactly like the pitster 150 in white, but are shown with the wheels and tires from the pitster black LE.

but the more interesting thing to me is that they have TWO models. A "mini" and a "mid" size. The bigger model claims to have longer wheelbase and more room for an adult. Hmmm.

If anyone has more specs on the Odes mini and mid, please share. I wonder which matches the pitster models and which came first.

Re: Odes dominator

Ride Report: I rode/drove a 2013 odes dominator today. Here is what I think. Coming from a 2011 RZR s, XP, and a 2012 Ranger XP 800 here is my view on it. First thing I notice is its huge. 64 inchs wide. They basically took the body/design of a yamaha rhino and put 6 inch wide plastic rivited fender flares on it. The entire body/interior has the cheap plastic rivits on it. fit and finish of all the plastic, window fitmet, interior, dash, controls was typical china quality. The motor sounded to run good. The trans seemed to have a low speed hitch when going from a stop to a move. The axle boots had zip ties holding them tight to axles (not steel band clamps). The ignition looked to be out of a 60s china made car. The interior noise is LOUD!!!! the engine has a vent right between the two passengers, so you hear a lot of engine noise. There is no back wall behind the seats so road debris comes off the rear tires and into the front compartment. This was annoying as I had all kinds of dirt on me. The rear bumper is a really really shady setup. If you even look at it wrong it will be bent at the mounts. The brakes are the weakest I have felt on a UTV.....and it makes sense as it doesnt have 4 wheel disk, it has a rear diff brake that looks to be the size of the brake used on an early polaris scrambler. I did like the hydraulic raising rear bed. Pretty cool feature. It also had a front and rear winch, which was nice. The seats were comfortable and good lumbar support. I noticed when i drove it it had terrible amount of bump steer. Every bump you hit it transfered back into the steering wheel. Also considering it is a utility side by side it had a very small rear bed. A polaris ranger bed would be much wider and longer.

Overall its what I expected for a china made rhino clone. Quality/fit and finish was crap. I fully expect he will have lots of issues with it within a year. Im already seeing issues with idle fluctuation between 1500-2000 rpms. It wouldnt go from High to Neutral without grinding. A few rubber gromets are missing so it vibrates like mad. I would not reccomend this to anyone I know. This would be a great UTV for $4000, for $9000 you would be stupid to consider when you can get close to that range for a Polaris ranger XP 800.

Re: Odes dominator

We own this and I would agree with the problems the brakes and debris. However, it is very similar to a rhino and they should move the radiator and put in a larger fan for overheating. This is the only problems we have had with ours. Not a bad deal for the cost of the 4-seater. Some of us are happy saving some money.

good to hear, glad its working well for you Im not sure what the going price is your area but around me an odes is $9000, and you can buy a polaris ranger XP 800 for $10,500. I think the odes is a good machine but not for a price thats within spitting distance of a Polaris.

Re: Odes dominator

I recently purchased a 2013 4 seater Odes Dominator 800cc. I have owned both Polaris and CanAm machines in the past.
I will admit I was skeptical when a buddy of mine tried to sell me on the Odes machine.
The Odes 4 seater was at a very attractive price point will all essential accessories included with the purchase.
Being a weekend trail rider, I do not ride my machines hard or put them under too much stress.
With that said, I am very very impressed with the Odes. The Frame, suspension, tie rods, and overall build quality is impressive for the price point. The overall ride is very impressive. Seating is comfortable and accommodating. For 800cc, has more than adequate power. The engine braking is amazing on this machine!
I will admit, from the research that I have done, I would not own a Odes model that was built prior to 2013. The 2013 models are totally redesigned from a build quality standpoint.

I cannot tell you how many riders have stopped me on the trail asking what type of machine I was in. After they look at it, sit in it, and know what I paid for it, they seem very interested to find out more details.

I purchased my machine from Legacy Powersports in Alabama. For $9k out the door, I don't know if I will ever own anything else.
Polaris is still the "legend" in my opinion for bringing the industry to where we are today.
If you are a casual weekend rider that needs a dependable 4 seater with a good safe family ride, but with the power and handling to play a little, give this machine a look.
For about half the price of a comparable Polaris or CanAm, I took my chances.
