“Comfort and convenience of upright geometry with the swift efficiency of a road bike“
The Clarity series fits into the Performance Hybrid category. Taking the best from both the mountain and road worlds, The Performance Hybrid combines their elements to create the ultimate machine. Larger-diameter 700c wheels offer an efficient platform for this nimble, lightweight bike that’s suitable for commuting, training or simply a weekend ride. Our Clarity series also embraces performance factors valued by today’s training racers and charity riders.
The Clarity series falls into our Devine Designs line which pays tribute to women riders. The collection features bike geometries built for women’s smaller frames and colors that reflect women’s tastes in aesthetics. You’ll find the same devotion to technology and elegant craftsmanship that’s engineered into all of our Diamondbacks – in designs specifically tailored towards the female rider.
