Made from lightweight DBR custom butted 7005 aluminum the Podium frame features state of the art tube shaping to concentrate material where it is really needed, and remove material were it isn’t. The outcome of this process is a frame that optimizes performance and compliance. The wheelbase has also been increased in order to provide a more stable ride. The Podium frame uses Diamondback’s Enhanced Performance Geometry that features a slightly higher headtube height in order to lessen strain on the rider’s back and neck. The 2013 Podium 1 is outfitted with more budget conscious components to create the perfect entry level road bike starting with a blend of Shimano components including 2300 dual control shifters/brake levers, and front derailleur, an HG50 8spd cassette, and a Sora rear derailleur. Stopping power comes courtesy of Tektro R312A dual pivot brakes and FSA gets a nod for the Tempo Triple crankset which sports a 52, 42 and a 30t chainring. Equation SE wheels offer a quick and lightweight riding experience and are laced to alloy hubs. Steering is precise and comfortable due to the DBR drop bar and forged stem while you’ll pedal with ease while sitting on the Performance road saddle and post.
