AMMP SL The AMMP SL frame is a lighter version of our CARBON COMPETITION frame. The difference is the addition of higher modulus material which is stronger with greater elongation and tensile strength. Adding these properties makes the frame thinner while maintaining and increasing stiffness because of the additional material properties. Because it’s thinner, it’s lighter.

ADVANCED MONOCOQUE MOLDING PROCESS The DIAMONDBACK PODIUM is handmade using our ADVANCED MONOCOQUE MOLDING PROCESS (AMMP). AMMP ensures that each piece of carbon ply is laid precisely where our engineers want it. These carbon plies are hand-wrapped around a polystyrene pre-form core, using a plastic bladder in the shape of the product. To achieve a precise mold during this layup process, we surround the emerging product with a plastic cavity, which guarantees a perfect fit. SILICONE MANDREL SHELLS are then used to reinforce critical joint areas so as to create smoother overlapping fibers at vital junctions such as the head tube and the bottom bracket. Each silicone shell is joined together prior to placing the product in the steel mold. In this final mold, we use a proprietary coating for optimal fiber adhesion.

OPTIMIZED RESIN COMPOUND Our signature OPTIMIZED RESIN COMPOUND is used to bind the carbon fibers together with precision alignment during the heating process. Using too much resin makes a frame feel heavy and sluggish. Too little resin can result in fiber separation and frame failure. Optimizing our resin-to-fiber ratio allows us to enhance our ratio of material weight-to-strength. The result is an exceptionally light weight, impact-resistant frame.

CONTINUOUS FIBER TECHNOLOGY DIAMONDBACK’S CONTINUOUS FIBER TECHNOLOGY uses fulllength carbon strands extending from the top of the steer tube to the bottom of the drop outs. Using that same AMMP technology employed in the Podium frame, we’ve created one of the stiffest forks available. With a lower integrated crown race that’s completely carbon, we’ve eliminated the need for a separate aluminum race. This makes the overall system lighter, stronger and more responsive.

CLEAN CORE TECHNOLOGYOur CLEAN CORE TECHNOLOGY ensures a clean inner core devoid of rough edges or excess material. When the product mold goes into the heat press, the air bladders are pressurized within the polystyrene pre-form core. This fills out the interior crevices and forces the fibers to conform to the shape. The heat softens the carbon plies making them malleable to the mold, and the excess resin is forced out. This makes for a product with light and consistent weight throughout, and produces a smooth surface— inside as well as out.
