While you may only know them for their mountain bikes, Diamondback has been making huge strides in developing their road offering as well. The result of this push is the Podium series carbon fiber frame. The Podium frame is hand made using Diamondback’s Advanced Monocoque Molding Process that ensures that each piece of carbon ply is laid precisely where it needs to be to provide exceptional stiffness and durability, without using excess material that will weigh the bike down. Diamondback makes their own carbon sheets in house from the latest MR60 and HR40 fibers produced by carbon fiber leader Mitsubishi Rayon Co. Ltd. and also the industry workhorse T700 fibers by Toray Industries Inc. due to their high tensile and modulus strength. This allows the engineers at Diamondback to have complete control of the quality of their materials and allows them to use less material in the frame, to keep weight low, without sacrificing stiffness or durability. The Podium frame uses the latest in cycling technology including a 1.5” tapered headtube that creates a stronger and stiffer front end and the Press-Fit BB30 bottom bracket standard that minimizes the overall weight of the bike while increasing the stiffness of the bottom bracket region. The Podium also features carbon fiber drop outs and internal cable routing for a clean, uncluttered finish that also improves aerodynamics.
SRAM’s Red component group represents the pinnacle of today’s cycling component technology. With innovative design features like their revolutionary YAW front derailleur that eliminates front chain rub, and their new wind cheating caliper design, SRAM Red is the group set that many pros count on to make the race winning difference. And don’t worry; it still uses SRAM’s classic double tap levers that you’ve come to love. Ultra-light, exceptionally smooth, and with looks that could kill, the new SRAM Red group is truly pro level.
