Ok now laddddies. I won't leave you hanging! The Diamondback Lux Comp provides quality features for women looking to get into mountain biking - and for those who already are. The women’s-specific frame provides a little extra standover clearance, making it easy to challenge yourself on new trails. The 27.5-inch wheels paired with Schwalbe Rapid Rob tires roll well over obstacles and deliver great traction, letting you chase after your friends. Thoughtful women’s-specific touchpoints – including a Devine Edition women’s saddle, DB Laser 720mm handlebar, and narrower grips – add to a great package to get you shredding.
