Interested in a bike that’s more 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. No, 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 tailored to you. We’re confident you’ll enjoy the ride: We worked hard to make it Devine.
At the heart of each Lux Sport 29 is our rugged Women’s Specific Butted 6061-T6 aluminum frame with formed top and down tubes providing strength and style with clean lines. The DB Snake stays add strength and style while a replaceable hanger add the finer touches. The components provide more proof of our commitment to providing you with the most appropriate package and value for your money. Nimble yet stable, this platform is a very solid trail performer.
The SR Suntour XCT fork has an ample 80mm of travel to keep rocks and roots from making your hands numb on the trail.
The stopping power comes from Tektro NOVELA disc brakes with 6” rotors. The advantage of a mechanical disc brake over a V- brake is that disc brakes have far superior stopping power and are less wear and tear on the rim… which in this case just happens to be 32h Weinmann SL-7 Doublewall disc rims laced to 32h SL-7 alloy hubs. Wrapped in Wolverine Comp tires by WTB, this gives the bike a stable and controllable footing.
The Shimano FCM171 crankset (22/32/42t) is matched with a Shimano TX50 front derailleur, Shimano Acera 8spd rear derailleur, and Shimano HG30 8spd Cassette (12-28t). This package provides more than enough gearing options to get you where you want to go.
Diamondbacks signature alloy stem and Lazer Bar are Devine women’s-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 all day long.
The 2013 Lux Sport 29 is white and comes in three sizes to suite your needs: S (15"), M (17"), L (19").
If a solid and reliable all-purpose 29er mountain bike is what you’re after; this is the one for you.
