Haanjo 5C EXP Carbon

* Required Fields

You’re lost. And that’s a good thing because the Diamondback Haanjo 5C EXP is a gravel bike designed to help you get off the beaten track. That’s why we designed it around a light, tough carbon fiber frame and fork with thru axles front and rear.

The path up the mountain is rarely flat and smooth. Accordingly, we outfitted this beast with plenty of gears as well as stout 27.5 inch HED Tomcat wheels shod with forgiving 47mm tires. Finally, since “the middle of nowhere” rarely brims over with replacement parts, we went with bar-end shifters for ease of on-trail maintenance and reliability.

Looking for your next great adventure? When the road turns bad, this bike gets really good.

Great bike - a couple design choices don't work for me

Review by Paul
Overall Quality

First, this is probably the most comfortable bike I've ever ridden. I just got off my first ride (3.5 hours of rough/steep fire roads) and feel great (other than normal fatigue). Can't say that about a 3+ hour ride on my mountain bike or road bike!

I looked at this bike for a long time before deciding to purchase, because the trade-offs for gravel were a bit overwhelming for me. But here are my thoughts in case you're having the same hesitations I was:
- 650bx47: wow, these are comfortable and confidence inspiring, they're basically the same width as my old 26inch mountain bike tire with a better angle of attack. But, wow, are they heavy! You can really feel it when you're on a road and start pedaling up hill. All that rotating weight on the tire is noticeable. I'll probably buy another 700c wheelset for gravel 'events' when I care about sticking with people for something lighter/faster.
- wtb byway tires: Fine on the road/dry, but horrendously bad on the mud, it's like riding on ice. The smallest patch of mud would force me to get a foot down, descending and hitting a slick spot was terrifying. If I don't get a second wheelset, I'll definitely replace these. If I do get a second wheelset, then these will be for bone dry days only.
- triple crank: after one ride, I can say that is definitely the right choice! I get the value of a single, but for steep terrain or potential to bikepack, this was the right choice for me
- bar end shifters: I really wanted to embrace this, I liked the simplicity, the clearance for a potential handlebar bag, serviceability, etc..., but when riding down a washboard fire road that quickly turns up - there is no way I am moving my hand from either the hoods or drops to the end of the bar to shift. I'm considering the Genevalle's or a triple compatible STI lever instead. Just can't ride anything rough and expect to shift with these :-(
- Frame/Fork: Loved it, the geometry was great for me.
- Bar flare: isn't this just some kooky thing hipsters do? I actually really appreciated it, I get it!
- Mechanical disc brakes: So first attempt with them I had no stopping power and was like "uh oh", but after they got bedded in they performed much, much better. They definitely are not as strong/light fingered as my hydraulic brakes on my mtn bike, but I found them good enough and appreciate the additional reliability they offer.

Overall, really enjoyed my first ride on this and look forward to many more. -1 star for the bar ends and tire choice.

The Mountainbiker's Road bike

Review by paolo

I have the 2017 Haanjo EXP (last year's model in OD green) with almost the exact same specs as the 2018, the most notable difference being the stock 27.5" tires. My 2017 came with knobby Schwalbe Smart Sam 27.5 x 2.1" mountain bike tires. ---> It's a fun option one could add to their 2018, by the way.

In a recent friendly race in the prealps of Italy, this setup was perfect for the 45km of gravel, tarmac, and rocky fire roads. With tire pressures set well, you have significant suspension/comfort and confidence with that 27.5x2.1" setup.

I also run a set of Schwalbe 700x35s on another set of wheels. This allows for quick road rides that can include mild gravel if I feel like it. ---> This is also a highly recommended setup.

I did months of research before purchasing. Peruse the specs sheets, the built-in features and geometry charts of the best adventure-gravel bikes out there and compare them to the Haanjo Carbon. Diamondback doesn't leave anything on the table...its shocking. You could upgrade this bike with more expensive components as most of us do eventually, but it really doesn't need anything. I would suggest making sure your stem length is right for your body measurements.

I even really like the 3x9 transmission for grunting up steep grades with luggage. You can't beat that 26x34 (0.80) gear ratio!

In short, the people behind the design of this bike obviously ride bikes.

Absolutely love this bike - so much fun

Review by Finpoppy

Used as prime bike for multiple sections of GDMBR . Ran the tire tubeless and had zero flats , even inNew Mexico where have hundreds of goat heads. Bike is smooth and fast, confidence inspiring. Still have not had any difficulty mechanically with close to 2,000 miles . The XT derailleur and bar end shifters simply work great, first time every time. Washboard roads are tough on any rigid bike - but with the fatter 47c tires you can flirt with the deep gravel along there side or in the middle.
