Assault Frameset

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 2012 Assault. Designed and refined through feedback from our riders, the assault is a burly little low slung rig designed to trick, flip, stick and hit. Boom!

Diamondback DF5 Pro Factory Team Rider Kelly McGarry sums it up like this: “The Assault is one of my favorite bikes in the Diamondback line up. It’s quick and snappy in the turns and fly’s predictably and smooth. The geometry works well for my style of riding, whether that be two, one, or zero wheels on the ground!”

The 2012 Diamondback Assault boasts of a 6061-T6 Aluminum frame with a tapered 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" chainstays and a 22” sloping top tube make the Assaults easy to throw around and manual for days.

The Assault frameset comes out of the box standard with an FSA No.57 tapered headset with 1.5 / 1 1/8" alloy cups and sealed cartridge bearings and a Diamondback signature Pivotal saddle and Alienation Billy Club post.

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 and road bikes. The Assault frameset is just the rig to do this.

Highlights:

  • 6061-T-6 Aluminum Assault Dirt Jump Disc only Frame
  • FSA No.57 Taper Headset
  • Alienation Pivotal Post w/DB BMX saddle
