Nimble like a 26”, fast and dominant like a 29er, the 27.5” (650b) wheel is here to stay! The 27.5”wheel offers lower rolling resistance and better traction for a smoother ride much like you'd get from the 29”, but with the agility and maneuverability of the smaller 26” wheel. The 27.50 also enables less geometry and suspension travel limitations, and eliminates toe clearance concerns, while increasing stiffness and durability. With all new, custom SL-7 27.5” Double wall wheels, the Axis Comp just might be the perfect machine for you to make your entrance into the 27.5” world.
At the heart of the Axis 27.5 series is the Diamondback Axis 27” Butted 6061-T6 aluminum frame with formed top and down tubes, machined headtube, and forged drop outs with a replaceable hanger. Thru pure simplicity the Axis frame blends uncompromised strength with minimalist good-looks that’ll sure to catch the attention of fellow trail junkies.
Diamondback is no stranger to assembling the best price-to-performance ratio, which they prove once again in the Axis Comp. A RockShox XC 30 TK 27.5 fork with 100mm of travel, turnkey lockout, and external rebound compression adjustment, provide the front end with an answer to any trail condition you may encounter. The Turnkey Lockout feature allows you to customize the feel of the fork for superior performance. Simply turn the Lockout accordingly for rigidity on brutal climbs or fast flats, or switch the suspension back on when technical descents lye ahead of you.
The Axis Comp 10-speed drivetrain is outfitted with a trusted SRAM set-up that includes X5 group for both the rear and front derailleurs, and shifters, while also lending their reliability and top-performance to the crankset, cassette and chain. For the cockpit Diamondback went with a customized DB spec’d cockpit, dialed in with a 3D forged 7° rise stem, zero-rise Flat Handlebar, and a 30.9 Micro Adjust seatpost with a DB Race Saddle on top; the perfect equation for days full of epic climbs, white-knuckle descents and technical single trail. Equipped with Avid Elixir-1 Hydraulic Disc brakes and a 180mm rotor up front and 160mm rotor in the rear, the Axis Comp is suited to take on the most fearsome trails. Complimenting the stopping capabilities of the Avid-Elixir-1’s are the grippy Scwalbe Rapid Rob tires that are certain to give you balance and control through any terrain.
