A 27.5 Plus, trail oriented adventure rig. Featuring Level Link suspension for both unmatched climbing and descending capabilities like no other in its class.
Diamondbacks new Catch series utilizes their freshly developed short link, four bar suspension system Level Link. The Catch has a geometry and spec to complement the emerging 27.5 plus tire platform and the new suspension system. The long top tube, short chainstays, low center of gravity, and the added float of the oversized tires have delivered an efficient lightweight climber that will still undeniably murder the descents. Level Link takes that 130mm of travel and makes it feel like so much more. Spend all day exploring the unkown terrain and let Level Link and the Diamondback Catch provide you with the traction and efficiency needed to enjoy every part of the ride, and that my friend, is truly what matters.
The Catch 2 is the top level bike in the series and carries an intelligent set of components. It features a Fox Float 34 27.5 plus 130mm fork, SRAM GX 1X11 drivetrain, KS Supernatural dropper post, and Diamondback tubeless compatible wheels.

My first real mtn bike was a schwinn mesa GS from the late 90s. It was a good enough hardtail for me and it made me a better rider. Last year I was given and old sugar race, and I thought the full suspension was pretty sweet so I started riding again. Through my job, I was able to score a sweet deal on a Catch 2, so I pulled the trigger. Although I have not rode a lot of bikes, and have a limited base to compare to, I am very impressed with this bike. I really like the level link and it soaks up bumps, roots, and cobbles at low and high speeds very effectively. I have read that the downside to this bike is the weight, but it climbs technical stuff mush better than the sugar race. I supposed the sugar race would have the advantage in a non-technical endurance climb. I feel like whether I am going up or down hill, all i need to do is point the bike where I want to go and pedal, regardless of the terrain. It is very confidence inspiring.
