The 2014 Clarity STI-8 performance hybrid is aimed to please those who commute, train, exercise, or are simply looking for a smooth riding bike for recreation. The jewel of the bike is the Clarity 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 the Clarity Integrated Aero Alloy straight blade fork keeping your ride smooth, stable and precise. The drivetrain is absolutely simple yet incredibly effective. Built around Shimano’s amazing 8-speed Nexus internal gear hub and a single 38t front chainring, you can shift effortlessly to find the right gear while in motion or at a complete standstill. This is a characteristic completely unique to the Nexus internal gear hub.
The light weight and aesthetically pleasing wheelset sports 32h Equation R23 rims with a machined braking surface, 14 gauge stainless steel spokes, an alloy front hub and Kenda Kwick Trax puncture resistant 700×32c tires.
Alloy linear pull brakes provide plenty of stopping power to keep you out of harm’s way. The rest of the cockpit is proprietary Diamondback with an oversized 31.8mm low rise alloy 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 it’s for your next cause ride or simply around the block.
If you are looking for a performance hybrid for commuting, training or simply a weekend ride … look no further.
