About the Release Carbon

Big Days, Even Bigger Lines

• Carbon frame shaves weight for an enhanced experience
• Modern geometry provides confidence when descending
• Standard Level Link suspension provides big hit compliance and pedaling efficiency
• ~130mm rear travel is ideal for long days in the backcountry
• 27.5” wheels for a youthful, poppy ride

Diamondback’s Release is an ultra-versatile MTB, now even lighter thanks to its carbon frame. Take on hours in the backcountry with Level Link suspension that absorbs big hits, and still pedals to the top with ease.

About Diamondback

Diamondback built the rad BMX bikes that fueled the 80s boom. Their bikes are different (read: evolved), but today Dback still caters to an elite roster of sponsored pros, bringing performance and stoke.

Highlights
- New Fulcrum E-Metal 700 rear wheel.
- New rear brake pads & rotor for more stopping power.
- New KMC chain for crisp shifting.
- New grips for improved comfort & control.
- Tuned front & rear brakes, firming up lever pull & creating consistent grab.
- New shifter cable & housing, pro-tuned to optimize crisp shifting.

Master Mechanic's Notes
- The backside of the seat tube was professionally repaired by Broken Carbon in Boulder, CO, and that repair comes with their 5-year limited warranty.
- Small paint chips on the non-drive side seatstay & chainstay.
- Small paint chips on the underside of the drive side chainstay.
- Small scratches on the frame, front rim, fork lower legs, handlebar, & cranks.
