It’s no secret: Women ride bikes for the same reasons guys do. You ride for that freedom found in the forest; that escape down a smooth path on a sunny day; the peace ushered in by an evening commute. With that same passion for riding comes the desire for a suitable bike that can take you anywhere you want to go. No more bothering with trying to make men's bikes work, or wishing there was a line of bikes that offers the kind of features you want—the Diamondback Airen line is here.
Devine Designs—Diamondback's line of bikes that pays tribute to women riders. These aren’t just men’s models painted in pastel. Diamondback recognized the need for a dedicated women's line and started from the ground up, considering every aspect of the female cyclist. The Airen collection is built around what women want in a bike: a tailored fit, lightweight construction for an easy to handle yet stable ride, performance proven components, and a distinguished color scheme. With Devine Designs, you’ll find the same devotion to technology and elegant craftsmanship that’s engineered into all Diamondbacks—in designs specifically developed for you.
At the heart of the Airen line is Diamondback's Women Specific, Enhanced Performance Geometry Frame. Its sub-compact construction brings the dimensions of the frame inward producing the ideal fit for female riders. This ‘compactness’ reduces frame weight by using less material and increases rigidity for greater control and responsiveness. This frame features fully butted 7005 alloy with a formed top tube and an integrated headtube with an integrated headset and a performance carbon fork with an alloy steertube. A light, agile frame responds quicker, inspiring confidence in control and giving you that extra burst to get-up-and-go.
The 2014 Airen 2 has been given a sizeable Shimano component face lift, making this competitively priced package hard to pass up. A blend of Shimano components, including 105 dual control shifters/brake levers, 105 front and rear derailleurs, and a Tiagra 10 speed cassette keeps the Airen 2 smooth and reliable ride after ride. Stopping power comes courtesy of Tektro R540 dual pivot brakes and FSA gets a nod for the CN910 10 speed chain and the Omega Compact Mega EXO crankset which sports a 50t and a 34t chainring. Low spoke count (28f/28r) on the new DB Equation R Wide Road wheels offer a lightweight riding experience. Accenting each of Diamondback's women’s bikes are crowning components: women-specific DBR Performance saddles, shorter stems and shorter crank arms. The result is a bike that excites adventure mile after smooth mile.
The Diamondback Airen 2 women's road bike features a women-specific design and dependable Shimano 105 components for comfortable, responsive performance on the road.
