Full suspension bikes have front and rear shocks that compress, absorb impact and move through their travel to offer the rider a smoother ride. Suspension systems improve traction and safety by helping to keep one or both wheels in contact with the ground. Full suspension bikes are great for XC, trail, All Mountain or gravity riding.
Diamondback utilizes its own unique suspension design called “KnuckleBox” suspension. KnuckleBox bikes employ Diamondback’s KnuckleBox suspension technology. The KnuckleBox, or bell crank, is the core of our single-pivot four-bar suspension platform. Optimally placed pivots equate to a low leverage ratio, and ultimately to superior pedaling efficiency and small-bump compliance.
