We won't shy away from saying the Release Three is the best trail bike we've ever made. Designed to deliver our new Level Link suspension platform to the public, it's our dream machine come to life.
The frame's geometry was engineered to get the most out of our new suspension. The lines reflect today's mountain bike: a shorter rear end and longer top tube make for a quick bike that stays stable at speed. With 130mm of rear travel and a 150mm RockShox Pike up front, this bike gobbles up rough sections like a much bigger bike. And as an extremely efficient pedaler, it blazes up climbs and rolling singletrack just as well. Hydroformed aluminum tubes make up the low-slung and semi-slack frame.
We chose top notch parts to finish off the build. 11-speed SRAM X1, a KS LEV Integra dropper post, SRAM Guide RS hydraulic brakes with 180mm rotors, and our new wide Blanchard rims. For riders who look for speed at every possible moment, the Release Three is the bike.

Release 3

Review by KYLE

I just bought the release 3 this bike is worth the money. A couple of parts I'd change after buying the bike handlebars ( too low for my comfort maybe 35mm rise upgrade) seat isn't the most comfortable thing out there made some changes after the second ride. Huge difference! Pedale may change after time... all and all I'm very glad I bit the bullet and went with the release 3 I was contemplating between the other two models. Shipping was amazing order it at 3 pm Tuesday and got it next Wednesday (ca)

Up To The Task

Review by Sandstone Cycles

In 2016 we raced four enduro events on the Release 3. Two rounds of Scott Enduro Cup and a couple local events. We can only recall bending two spokes on the rear Blanchard wheel, we trued it one time (its still holding up well!) and replaced tires for a more aggressive tread on big mountain stages. Outside of those minor things we kept this bike the way it came in the box for the remainder of the season, and the machine held up great! (Keep in mind we raced it in a open/pro catagory) so there were no easy days on this bike. Along with 1400 miles of trail riding throughout the year (March 1st - Dec. 1st). We still have this bike and use it as a practice bike... Bottom line, the Diamondback Release 3 is up to the task! And its our weapon of choice for the 2017 Scott Enduro Cup Series! - Sandstone Cycles
