Interested in a bike that’s tailored to the woman rider? Welcome to Devine Designs – our line of bikes that pays tribute to women riders. These aren’t men’s models painted in pastel. 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 made for you. We’re confident you’ll enjoy the ride: We worked hard to make it Devine.
Whether you are new to the trails or a seasoned singletrack rider, our Lux series models have always offered uncompromised quality without compromising your bank account. The perfect blend of hardtail performance with rugged utility, the Lux continues to be a value oriented build ready for any new rider or trail enthusiast looking to jump into the mountain bike scene. For 2014 our Lux series models are combining the trail crushing dominance of last year’s Lux 29’ers with the agility of the 26” wheeled Lux from years past; bring on the 27.5!
Why 27.5” Wheelset?
While this is an ongoing debate amongst the masses there are notable benefits to the 27.5” wheel that continue to contribute to its growing popularity. Lower rolling resistance and better traction giving you a smoother ride similar to that of the 29”, but with less geometry and suspension travel limitations, or toe clearance concerns. In the end you have a smoother ride than a 26” wheel and greater torsional stiffness and durability than a 29” wheel. Our new, custom SL-7 27.5” Doublewall wheels have been served up to keep you charging ahead on every trail.
At the core of our new Lux 27.5 series is the rugged Diamondback Lux Women Specific Butted 6061-T6 aluminum frame with a newly designed super-low, formed top tube providing strength, style, and clean lines. The new super-low top tube, paired with the 27.5” wheelset, makes this frame more accessible to those who may have been challenged in years past to ride the larger 29” wheeled platforms. Greater clearance also means swinging your leg up and over to start peddling is that much easier!
The components provide more proof of our commitment to providing you with the most appropriate package and value for your money. An SR Suntour XCR-LO 27.5 fork with 100mm travel, 30mm Stanchions, and Speed Lock gives you the upper hand to dominate the trail. The Speed Lock feature allows you to adjust/limit the rebound of the fork to maximize your pedaling efficiency. Engage the Speed Lock feature to help you on those long ascents or enduring flat sections so you can go further and faster with less energy exerted.
The 32h Diamondback SL-7 Doublewall wheels serve as a lightweight and sturdy source to your all-day trail freedom; they are wrapped in the grippy WTB Wolverine tires to give you control on any surface. You will have plenty of stopping power at your fingertips with the Shimano BR-M395 Hydraulic Disc brakes with 180mm front and 160mm rear rotors.
The SRAM S600 Alloy Arm crankset (22/32/42t) is synced up with a Shimano drivetrain including the 8 speed Rapid Fire trigger shifters, Acera front and rear derailleurs, and Shimano HG31 8spd Cassette (12-28t). This combo is sure to prove worthy over the long haul; rugged, reliable, and ready to perform.
Diamondbacks signature 4-bolt Ahead alloy stem and Lazer Bar are Devine women specific width and low rise to create the perfect riding position for the female rider. A DB Lazer Micro Adjust 30.9mm post and Devine Edition MTB saddle ensure that you can pedal in comfort all day long.
If a solid and reliable, all-purpose women’s mountain bike is what you are looking for, then the Lux Sport 27.5 is the one for you.
