Insight 1

“Comfort and convenience of upright geometry with the swift efficiency of a road bike“

The Insight series fits into the Performance Hybrid category. Taking the best from both the mountain and road worlds, The Performance Hybrid combines their elements to create the ultimate machine. Larger-diameter 700c wheels offer an efficient platform for this nimble, lightweight bike that’s suitable for commuting, training or simply a weekend ride. Our Insight series also embraces performance factors valued by today’s training racers and charity riders.

The 2012 Insight 1 performance is aimed to please those who commute, train exercise, or are simply looking for a smooth riding bike to recreate on. The jewel of the bike is the Insight 6061-T6 Butted Aluminum Performance Hybrid frame with a formed/hooded top tube, an integrated headtube, and vertically compliant stays (VCS).

Fit specifically for the frame is an Insight Integrated Alloy aero straight blade fork keeping your ride smooth, stable and precise. Shimano provides a blend of quality components including cranks, bottom bracket, brake levers, 7spd shifters, cassette and derailleurs. Equation R23 Doublewall rims provide a solid structured wheel capable of all day rides.

Alloy linear pull brakes afford a fair amount of stopping power sure to keep you out of harm’s way. The rest of the cockpit is proprietary Diamondback alloy with an oversized 31.8mm handlebar and 3D Forged 7° stem to give the appropriate rise for maximum steering control and comfort.

A DB Performance Hybrid saddle with gel sits atop a 27.2mm alloy micro adjust seat post offering an exceptionally comfortable ride whether that be in your next cause ride or simply around the block.

The Diamondback Insight 1 comes in 5 sizes: SM (15"), M (17"), LG (19"), XL (21"), XXL (23"). If you are looking for a performance hybrid for commuting, training or simply a weekend ride … look no further.
