Compact Womens Geometry
It’s no secret: Women ride bikes for the same reasons guys do. We ride for that freedom found in the forest; that escape down a smooth path on a sunny day; the peace ushered in by an evening commute. And we, too, want the perfect bike that’ll take us there.
Welcome to Devine Designs—our line of bikes that pays tribute to women riders. These aren’t men’s models painted in pastel. No, at Diamondback, we started from the ground up, considering every aspect of the female cyclist. The collection features bike geometries built for our smaller frames; colors that reflect our tastes in aesthetics; and overall models that speak to our practical notions of comfort and affordability. With Devine Designs, you’ll find the same devotion to technology and elegant craftsmanship that’s engineered into all of our Diamondbacks—in designs specifically tailored to you. We’re confident you’ll enjoy the ride: We worked hard to make it Devine.
Because freedom is an experience, it should be pure. At the heart of our women’s road line is our Compact Women’s Geometry. It brings the dimensions of the frame inward, creating smaller bikes more apt for petite riders. And so we started with a Devine Women’s specific custom fully butted 7005 alloy compact geometry frame with a formed top tube and an integrated headtube. All Podium aluminum frames feature drop in headsets and carbon straight blade forks with an alloy steertube. A light, agile frame responds quicker, inspiring confidence in control and giving you that extra burst to get-up-and-go.
The 2012 Airen 2 is outfitted with more budget conscious components to create a deal that’s hard to pass up. We’ve paired the Airen 2 with a blend of Shimano Tiagra components including dual control shifters/brake levers, 10spd cassette, and front and rear derailleurs. Stopping power comes courtesy of Tektro R530 dual pivot breaks and FSA gets a nod for the CN910 10spd chain and the Vero Compact crankset which sports a 50t and a 34t chainring.
Low spoke count (20f/24rr) Equation R17 wheels offer a quick and lightweight riding experience and are laced to alloy hubs. Accenting each of our women’s bikes are crowning components: women-specific DBR Performance saddles, smaller Avenir 200 Series stems and shorter crank arms. We even put narrower Avenir 200 Series handlebars within a comfortable reach. The result is a bike that excites adventure mile after smooth mile.
Body types are different so we offer four sizes: Compact – 42cm, 44cm, 48cm, and 52cm. The Airen 2 is white and silver and is simply… Devine.
