Diamondback Release 5C / 27.5
Diamondback Release 5C / 27.5
We pulled out all the stops on our flagship full-suspension trail bike.
You can't have it all…Really? Nobody told that to the Release 5C. Our top-shelf trail bike is the embodiment of new-school technology. Thanks to our Level Link suspension, the Release 5 C absolutely levels the kind of drops and rock gardens that stymie bikes with even more suspension travel. At the same time, our patent-pending design allows the Release to accelerate and climb with the kind of blazing efficiency you'd normally expect from a wispy, featherweight race rig.
The Release 5C, in a nutshell, is the perfect all-rounder. The bike's modern geometry—long in the front, short in the rear, low in the bottom bracket—lends the bike stability at high speeds without sacrificing agility when the trails get tight. What's more, we've decked this machine out with a peerless parts kit that includes the absolutely bomber Fox 36 Performance Elite Float fork and Fox Performance Elite Float DPX2 rear shock, an ultra-precise SRAM GX Eagle 12-speed drivetrain, a wheelset with e*thirteen LG1 EN rims and Novatec hubs, and quick-stopping SRAM G2 RS hydraulic disc brakes with 180mm rotors. A KS LEV Integra dropper post and Race Face cockpit components round out the stellar package.
