Whether you are new to the trails or a seasoned single track rider, the Response series offers uncompromised performance without compromising your bank account. Combining the perfect blend of hardtail performance with rugged utility, the Response Sport—which shares the same frame and several of the components of the pricier Response Comp is a value oriented build ready for any new rider or trail enthusiast.
At the heart of each Response is our rugged Diamondback 6061-T6 aluminum frame with formed top and down tubes providing strength and style with clean lines. A machined headtube adds strength and style while forged drop outs with a replaceable hanger add the finer touches. The components provide more proof of our commitment to providing you with the most appropriate package and value for your money.
A SR Suntour XCM 100mm travel fork with 30mm stanchions affords you a capable fork without all of the extra costly bells and whistles, yet still capable of climbing or descending your favorite trail.
Also on deck is a set of Tektro Novela Mechanical Disc brakes with 6” rotors. The advantage of a mechanical disc brake over a linear pull brake s that disc brakes have far superior stopping power and are less wear and tear on the rim… which in this case just happen to be 32h Weinmann MX260D Doublewall rims laced to 32h MX260H alloy hubs.
The SR Suntour XCT crankset (22/32/44t) is a good match for the Shimano TX50 front derailleur, the Shimano Acera 8spd rear derailleur and Shimano HG30 8spd Cassette (11-32t). This combo provides more than enough gearing options to get you where you want to go.
Diamondbacks signature alloy SL318s stem and Oversize 31.8mm Mid Rise handlebar create the perfect cock pit while the SL309p Alloy Micro Adjust 30.9mm post and DB low profile All Mountain saddle ensure that you can pedal all day long.
If a solid and reliable all-purpose mountain bike is what you’re after; a Response Sport is the one for you.
