When designing their new bike, Diamondback knew it would take more than just a new suspension bike to be able to label it their dream trail bike. The goal of the Release series of bikes for Diamondback was to showcase their Level Link design and make it one of the best-pedaling trail bikes they've ever made. The Release Two fits the bill and has geometry that reflects the current state of mountain biking: stable at speed, quick in corners, and excellent on climbs. The Level Link configuration separates pedaling and trail inputs and makes 130mm of travel feel like much more.
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. Diamondback's new Blanchard tubeless wheels have a 28mm internal width, giving the 27.5” Schwalbe Hans Dampfs a trail-gripping profile. Braking duties are handled by SRAM Level T hydraulic brakes 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. This bike is designed to be ridden hard all day long. Just raise the KS dropper post and climb up for another lap: the Diamondback Release 2 is more than ready.
