BIKE RECOMMENDATION - INTENSE

Intense Tracer Series 27.5"

image3

ENDURO BIKE - FULL SUSPENSION
Since the 1st  generation Tracer was introduced in 1999, the bike has  been positioned as our most aggressive trail/all mountain bike in the  line – agile on climbs and destroys the descents. The Tracer has long  been a leader in the evolution of trail bikes. In 2014, it was named  “Interbike’s Bike of the Year”. In 2017, Pink Bike called it a “playful,  ready-for-anything trail bike” and Enduro Mag said was an “ irrefutably  great bike”. But don’t take their word for it – experience it for  yourself. 

Intense Recluse Series 27.5"

TRAIL BIKE - FULL SUSPENSION

The Intense Recluse is a skillfully crafted all-mountain machine.  Featuring 150mm front and 140mm rear travel, and coupled with our  proprietary JS Tuned Suspension, the Recluse ascends with as much  efficiency as it descends. If you're looking to push boundaries going up  and heading down the mountain, the Recluse will deliver the experience  you've been chasing.

TRAIL BIKE - FULL SUSPENSION
The rigid, lightweight properties of carbon fiber combined with agile  geometry deliver this incredibly fun, nimble, and light trail bike. The  Spider 275 is designed for trail riding and racing, the optimized wheel  path and efficient pedaling platform create a well-rounded machine that  climbs and descends with equal skill. 

BIKE RECOMMENDATIONS - DIAMONDBACK

Diamondback Hook

image6

ENTRY LEVEL - HARDTAIL

Affordable shouldn’t be code for lame. Consider the Hook, a thoroughly modern, ridiculously fun, and yes, affordable rig.  The Hook is a great choice for kids just getting into mountain biking. It's a starter bike that can take you for some quick rips on your local trails,  all-day suffer fests that have you pedaling away into terra incognita,  and everything in between. 

Diamondback "Line"

image7

ENTRY LEVEL - HARDTAIL 

The Line is a do-it-all hardtail that’ll have you pushing and redefining your limits. There was a time when every mountain bike was an all-around hardtail. The Line follows in that great tradition, but that doesn’t mean it’s some kind of crusty throwback. They have equipped the Line with a  cutting-edge frame that’s lightweight yet bomber. Stable under pressure, yet playful when you’re looking to boost a little air or hit that next corner a bit faster than is, strictly speaking, wise. 

Diamondback Catch

image8

ENTRY LEVEL - FULL SUSPENSION

For the Diamondback Catch 1, they created a trail bike with extra  stability, yet one that still felt adventurous. By adding 2.8” wide,  plus-size Maxxis tires to the Level Link suspension, they created a  bike that absolutely rips on tight trails, but does so with the extra  grip and control of a plus-size bike. Thru axles front and rear add stiffness and enhance steering precision.  Their own Blanchard 27.5+ wheels are tubeless compatible, so you can ditch  the tubes and get even more traction and control.

Diamondback Release 2

image9

MID-LEVEL - FULL SUSPENSION

When they set out to build a dream trail bike, they knew it would take  more than just a new suspension platform. The goal of the Release series was to showcase their Level Link design in one of the best-pedaling trail bikes. The Release 2 gets this done with geometry that  reflects the current state of mountain biking: stable at speed, quick in corners, and excellent on climbs. 

Diamondback Release 4C

image10

HIGH-LEVEL - FULL SUSPENSION

Several cycling magazines and websites named the Release the  best trail bike Diamondback has ever made. We were humbled. And  challenged. How do you top that? By taking the same cutting-edge 130mm travel suspension design and progressive geometry and crafting a new frame entirely out of carbon fiber. We’re proud to unveil the Release 4C  — a bike with the same bottomless-feeling rear suspension and deft  handling as its predecessor, but with an even lighter and stiffer  chassis.

Diamondback Release 5C

HIGH-LEVEL - FULL SUSPENSION

You can’t have it all … Really? Nobody told that to the Release 5 C. Our  top-shelf trail bike is the embodiment of new-school technology. Thanks  to Diamondback's Level Link suspension, the Release 5 C absolutely  levels the kind of drops and rock gardens that stymie bikes with even more suspension travel. At the same time, Diamondback's patent-pending  design allows the Release to accelerate and climb with the kind of blazing efficiency you’d normally expect from a wispy, featherweight race rig.
