Not every ride is a break-neck race to the finish. For many, a bike that delivers long distance comfort and a slightly more upright riding posture is preferable to that of a more aggressive race machine. If you're looking to harness the efficiency and ride characteristics of a high-end race bicycle, but are looking for a road bike with a nod to comfort, the Diamondback Century 5 Ultegra Carbon 2014 is primed to perform.
The Diamondback Century 5 Carbon features Diamondback's Advanced Tube to Tube (ATT) design with “Core Control” which utilizes a monocoque of the head tube and down tube that is joined to a monocoque of the BB and chain stay. These two structures form the “core” of the frame and work together to provide better handling through front end control and stiffness and rear end power transmission. Diamondback then applies the remaining carbon tubes utilizing carbon welding or Tube to Tube construction. This provides additional compliance to the ride. Coupling these two unique methods of frame making creates an exceptionally smooth confidence inspiring and efficient ride. The frame also features internal cable routing, carbon drop outs, a tapered headtube, and Di2 compatibility.
The DB Carbon road fork features Diamondback's Continuous Fiber Technology (CFT). Diamondback’s Continuous Fiber Technology uses full-length carbon strands to manufacture the forks that extend from the top of the steer tube to the bottom of the drop outs. Using that same AMMP technology employed in the Podium frame, Diamondback created one of the stiffest forks available. With a lower integrated crown race that’s completely carbon, the need for a separate aluminum race is eliminated. This makes the overall system lighter, stronger and more responsive.
The Diamondback Century 5 Carbon sports a snappy Shimano Ultegra 11 speed drivetrain with an FSA Team Issue Compact BB386 crankset. A Shimano RS-21 Clincher Wheelset also adorns this beauty providing an extremely lightweight and fast rolling wheel option. Easton EC70 Carbon Aero drop bars and a DBR 3D forged stem round out the cockpit while a Prologo Scratch Pro, TiROX Rail seat and Diamondback ODC, Optimal Density Carbon post ensure that you are riding in comfort and style.
