Whatchoo know ‘bout going big, boy? I can tell you what our DF5 Factory riders know and that is that there ain’t no street, park, or jump line that can throw off the 2014 Assault series. Designed and refined through feedback from our riders, the Assaults are burly little low slung rigs designed to trick, flip, stick and hit. Boom!
The 2nd Assault takes its cues from the (1st) Assault. Sharing the same 6061-T6 Aluminum frame w/Taper head tube, Mission formed top tube and steel reinforced horizontal BMX dropouts, these frames are stout and fully capable of going big. And weighing in at a respectable 4.5 lbs makes this one of the lighter dirt jump frames on the market.
Rocking a single speed specific horizontal dropout keeps things clean and simple. 69° head and 72° seat angles combined with significantly compact 15.3" chain stays and a 22” sloping top tube make the Assaults easy to throw around and manual for days.
The 2nd Assault comes spec’d with a Manitou Circus Dirt Jump, 100mm travel fork with a Maxle 20mm thru axle. This keeps the front end stiff and burly. Tubular chromoly cranks provide a solid jumping platform while the 32h Alienation PBR front and Black Sheep rear rims provide stout landing gear for touchdown. A Hayes HMX-5 Mechanical Disc rear brake with a V6 Rotor and Diamondback stem, bars, pedals, and signature Pivotal seat posted atop an Alienation Billy Club seatpost round out the package.
Diamondback is a brand that built its reputation on top of the line BMX bikes. 30 years later, we’re bridging that gap from our high end BMX to our high end mountain bikes. The Assault and 2nd Assault are just the rigs to do this.
The 2nd Assault is black and available in 1 size with a 22” toptube.
