Clarity 3

“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 out 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.

The 2012 Clarity 3 performance hybrid is a top of the line bike aimed to please those who commute, train exercise, or are simply looking for a smooth riding bike to recreate on. If we liken the Clarity 3 performance hybrid to a sports car; the Clarity 3 is the special-ordered model with all of the options. But the basis of all of this is the Clarity 6061-T6 Butted Aluminum Performance Hybrid frame with a formed/hooded top tube, an integrated headtube, and vertically compliant stays (VCS).

Fit specifically for the frame is a Clarity Integrated Alloy aero straight blade fork keeping your ride smooth, stable and precise. Shimano kits the Clarity out in style with FCM-411 Alivio cranks (26/36/48t), Rapid Fire 8 speed shifters, and front and rear derailleurs. A Shimano HG51 8spd Cassette (11-30t) and KMC Z82 chain round out the drive train to complete a perfect pedaling and shifting machine.

Low spoke count wheels offer a light weight and aesthetically pleasing wheelset sporting a 20spoke front/ 24 spoke rear Equation R17 Aero Doublewall rim with a machined braking surface, 14 guage stainless steel spokes, alloy hubs and Kenda Kwick Trax puncture resistant 700×28c tires.

Avid SD-3 linear pull brakes afford a fair amount of stopping power sure to keep you out of harm’s way. The rest of the cockpit is proprietary Diamondback alloy with an oversized 31.8mm handlebar and 3D Forged 7° stem to give the appropriate rise for maximum steering control and comfort.

A DB Performance Hybrid saddle with gel sits atop a 27.2 alloy micro adjust seat post offering an exceptionally comfortable ride whether that be in your next cause ride or simply around the block.

The Diamondback Clarity 3 comes in 4 sizes specifically designed for women: WXS (13"), WS (15"), WM (17"), WL (19"). If you are looking for the Crème de la Crème of the performance hybrid category… look no further.
