Diamondback Mission 27.5/Sea Otter

FATE LOVES THE FEARLESS

FATE LOVES THE FEARLESS and pushing through fear requires the proper tool. For this we are proud to announce the all new Mission 27.5 launching exclusively at the 2014 Sea Otter Classic in Monterey, CA.

On the KnuckleBox Migration

The KnuckleBox migration involves shifting the KnuckleBox linkage down and forward in the frame and allows for increased travel with the same low center of gravity and tight compact design. The system allows for increased travel, a larger wheel size and manages pedaling efficiency while delivering a connected trail experience over all surfaces and obstacles. The result is a capable All Mountain full suspension rig that is best in class at a reasonable price.
