Arden 5C Carbon

* Required Fields


You might be able to shoehorn yourself onto a bike that doesn’t fit or that sacrifices comfort on the altar of speed, but for how long? And more importantly, why make that compromise in the first place?

We hand-build the all-carbon Arden 5 C to be the smoothest women’s bike you’ll find. Precisely engineered seat stays keep the bike’s ride supple. Front and rear thru-axles create the best possible stability and tracking. Make no mistake, the Arden 5 C is blazingly quick and remarkably comfortable, even after hours spent turning the pedals.

The bike’s kit is just as impressive. A Shimano 105 2x11 drivetrain delivers accurate, drama-free shifting and hydraulic disc brakes increase your control in all conditions. A HED Flanders C2+ wheelset rolls quick and true, year after year.

Ride farther, ride faster… ride without compromising a thing.

Review by Kim
Overall Quality

Was looking to upgrade to a road bike. Was considering purchasing a Cannondale Synapse Carbon 105. I even put the bike on hold. I test road it several times and the bike fit me really well. It was just by change that I had come across Diamondback brand. I did some on line research and read some really great things about Diamondback and seen several positive reviews on y-tube. I wasn't sure it about buying a bike on line, but I also knew that I was getting better components than I would have gotten on the Cannondale. All I can say, I love my bike and I made the right decision to purchase the Arden 5 Carbon. Not only does she look great on the road, she is fast, shifts and brakes amazing, and handles anything that I throw at her. I ride 4-5 time a week and we do cycling events. We normally average about 18 miles per ride. My goal is do a century, and this will the bike I will do it on.
