Though it started as a grassroots revolution, the benefits of the 29" wheel size have since been trail tested and the movement continues to grow in popularity, bringing a range of new opportunities to the mountain biking experience. The latest version of the Diamondback Sortie, draws its inspiration from the original 26" Sortie, keeping the ride characteristics of the Sortie trail platform while introducing a handful of upgrades that reinforce the benefits of a larger wheel diameter.
Some substantial benefits of the 29" wheel platform include:
The Sortie 29 2.0 blends affordability with high-quality build.
Weapons Grade Aluminum frame features a hydroformed top tube, a butted
and formed downtube, a seatstay bridge, tapered headtube, a larger
142mm x 12mm vertical drop out and Diamondbacks legendary Knuckle Box
The Knuckle Box, or bell crank, is the core of Diamondback's single-pivot four-bar suspension platform. Optimally placed pivots equate to a low leverage ratio, and ultimately to superior pedaling efficiency and small-bump compliance. This also allows the shock to work more efficiently and reduces pedal induced motion, reducing overall load on the system which will lead to improved shock and bearing life. Placing the Knuckle Box low within the frame situates the greatest weight of the bike closer to the bottom bracket. This lowers the bike’s center of gravity and allows it to better track and corner.
A benefit of Diamondback's four-bar linkage is increased control over the wheel-rate. Wheel-rate—the effective spring-rate when measured at the wheel—is also one of the most significant aspects of a suspension system. Working closely with Fox, Diamondback was able to optimize the wheel-rate to be linear-to-slightly progressive. This results in superb small-bump compliance, more perceived travel and excellent bottom-out protection. The Sortie 29 2.0 features a Fox Float CTD Air Shock with Boost Valve. The extra volume “LV” 190×51mm air shock with rebound adjust CTD Pedal Platform On/Off lever provides a feeling of endless travel and plushness like that of a downhill rig, but with XC pedaling efficiency. Dial in climb, trail, or descend mode instantly.
The Sortie29 2.0 features quality componentry in an economical package, starting with the Fox 32 Float CTD 29 Air 130mm travel fork. This fork comes with an open bath cartridge, rebound, lever actuated lockout, butted alloy tapered 1.5 steerer, 32mm Easton aluminum stanchions, magnesium lowers, and a QR15mm Thru Axle Dropout. The lockout function comes in handy for sustained climbing. And at a hair under 4lbs, this little beast helps to keep weight down.
