Diamondback Release 2

Notify me when this product is available:

When Diamondback set out to build their dream trail bike, they knew it would take more than just a new suspension platform.

Diamondback’s Release series’ goal was to showcase the Level Link design in the best-pedaling trail bike that Diamondback has ever made. The Release 2 gets this done with geometry that mimics the current state of mountain biking. This means it has stable speed, quick on corners, and excellent with climbs.

The Level Link suspension separates pedaling and trail inputs and makes 130mm of travel feel like much more. This suspension system isolates horizontal pedaling, which forces and controls chain growth and increases your pedaling efficiency. Whether you are hitting a small or large bump, the Level Link suspension platform absorbs the hit effectively.

The Release 2 is entirely responsive. Test this bike out on some single track and speed down tight corners to feel how in control you are.

Climbing with this bike is excellent. The new Blanchard tubeless wheels have a 28mm internal width, giving the 27.5” Schwalbe Hans Dampfs a trail-gripping profile. You can feel the rear wheel planted with the grip needed to handle serious technical trails as you quickly descend downhill.

The 6061 aluminum frame features hydroformed tubes, a tapered headtube, and a stiff 148×12mm thru-axle rear end. With a 150mm RockShox Pike Fork and wide handlebars, the front end is dialed. You can dive into tough sections with confidence, and truly enjoy all kinds of terrain.

SRAM Level T hydraulic brakes handle braking functions with 180mm rotors front and rear. The drivetrain is a mix of RaceFace and SRAM 1×11 components, letting you enjoy your ride without chain drops or noise.

Diamondback’s Release 2 is designed to ride hard, and all day long.  Raise the KS dropper post and climb up for another lap. The Release 2 is eager to take on a grueling and fun day on the trails.
