You're always looking to improve. Maybe it's your time around your local trail, or maybe you don't care about keeping track and you just want to ride faster and more efficiently. Crafted with race-ready speed in mind, the Diamondback Overdrive Carbon 2014, is a lightweight cross-country bike that is absolutely dialed to perfection. This outstanding XC bike from Diamondback makes room for you to reach your potential and more. With impressive construction and a sensible component group, don't be suprised if you find the Overdrive Carbon 2014 at the front of the pack.
The Overdrive Carbon series takes Diamondback's bestselling 29” bike and makes it even better. Utilizing the exact same trail/XC geometry as the Aluminum Overdrive series, the Carbon Overdrive incorporates Diamondback's proprietary Advanced Monocoque Molding Process (AMMP) technology using the highest-grade carbon, constructed in the most precise manner, to produce a world-class racing machine. The frame also boasts a 142×12mm carbon drop out, post-mount disc tabs, and a tapered head tube for front end torsional stiffness and precise steering.
The geomety of the meticulously designed Overdrive Carbon is spot on. The ever so sloping top tube provides ample standover clearance. A 71° head tube angle and a 73° seat tube angle create the perfect XC/trail geometry. 440mm (17.3") chainstays equate to an extremely snappy rig and the ability to easily get the front wheel off the ground.
Specific to the Overdrive Carbon is the FOX 32 FLOAT CTD 29” E-S. This top shelf fork from FOX gives you 100mm of plush travel up front with a CTD damper that grants you 5 different compression settings to optimize your ride for low and high rates of speed. The 15mm thru-axle increases the front end stiffness for enhanced steering and traction. Diamondback ties it all together with a price-concious component package that delievers exceptional performance. Avid Elixir 1 Hydraulic Disc brakes with 180mm front and 160mm rear rotors provide ample stopping power. The SRAM 10 speed drivetrain with the high quality and style of the X5 Front derailleur and crankset and X7 long cage rear derailleur grants you smooth shifting and powerful pedalling performance. Add in Diamondback SL-7 double wall rims with WTB Wolverine Race tires and you are set to conquer any and all obstacles. The Diamondback Lazer Series 31.8mm low rise handlebars and custom DB 3D forged 7° stem coupled with the DB Micro Adjust seatpost and M-Race saddle w/ tubular cromo rails round out this incredible cockpit package.
