Vital 3

If you’re having trouble trying to determine whether the comforts of a comfort bike are more important to you than the efficiency of a road bike; get the best of both in an all-new women’s-specific Vital hybrid.

It’s no secret: Women ride bikes for the same reasons guys do. We ride for that freedom found in the forest; that escape down a smooth path on a sunny day; the peace ushered in by an evening commute. And we, too, want the perfect bike that’ll take us there. 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.

The Vital 3 combines the same relaxed contact point features as a comfort bike with the big smooth-rolling 700c wheels of a road bike. The heart of the bike is the butted 6061-T6 Aluminum Hybrid geometry frame with formed tubes and a replaceable derailleur hanger. Coupled with a SR Suntour M-3010 AL 65mm travel fork, the ride is nothing but smooth and efficient.

A full Shimano drivetrain with shifters, cogs, brake levers and front and rear derailleurs round out this smooth rolling, smooth shifting, smooth braking machine. 32h Weinmann ZAC-19 Doublewall rims offer up a durably built wheel that can go for days. A comfy cockpit with an adjustable stem provides precise steering when and where you need it. The DB Deluxe Hybrid saddle with double density base offers a comfy position for long rides.

The 2012 Vital 3 is blue and comes in 2 sizes: WS (15"), WM (17"). From the simple to the sophisticated, you’ll find the path, neighborhood, or around town bike you’re after in a comfort geometry Diamondback Vital 3.
