Release 4C Carbon

Several cycling magazines and websites called last season’s Release the best trail bike Diamondback has ever made. We were humbled. And challenged. How do you top that? By taking the same cutting-edge 130mm travel suspension design and progressive geometry and crafting a new frame entirely out of carbon fiber. We’re proud to unveil the Release 4 C — a bike with the same bottomless-feeling rear suspension and deft handling as its predecessor, but with an even lighter and stiffer chassis.

We equipped the Release 4 C with a Fox Float DPS EVOL LV rear shock and a150mm travel Fox 34 Performance Float fork for smooth bump-eating performance. Likewise, Shimano’s SLX 11-speed single-ring drivetrain provides consistent shifting and, thanks to its generous 46-tooth granny gear, makes short work of the kind of climbs you’d normally despise.

Ready Ride bikes are shipped 95 percent assembled. Typical bike assembly is time-consuming and requires technical know-how. Ready Ride reduces the time and skills needed for the final, four-step assembly.

Overall Quality

This was easily the best bike purchase I ever made. You get a beautifully designed full carbon frameset in a lovely color scheme with wide 32 spoke wheels and long travel suspension that just gobbles up all the trail comfortably and inspires confidence during aggressive downhill riding. I loved how the bike looked in the pictures but the picture do it no justice. Once you see this bike in person it is such a beautiful bike with perfectly profiled tube shapes and in my opinion the perfect color scheme. The drivetrain components perform well and shift perfectly when setup correctly. The wide 32 spoke wheels are a huge plus. The fox suspension is adjustable and performs beyond expectation @ this price point. Dropper post works great. Gearing accomodates all types of riding but I found a couple more teeth on the front chainring to help gain some more speed on the flats and not spin out so soon on the steep downhills. Definately best bang for the buck MTB package out there. So many great features @ such a great price point which really makes this the best bike purchase i've ever made. I keep putting emphasis on the price point because very few, if at all any, bike companies are selling a master crafted full carbon mtb for under $4k. So with that being said, Thanks Diamondback. :) :) :) :)
