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 Expert 2014, is a lightweight cross-country bike that is absolutely dialed to perfection. This top-tier XC bike from Diamondback makes room for you to reach your potential and more. With impressive construction and a phenomenal component group, don't be suprised if you find the Overdrive Carbon Expert 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 Expert 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 Expert 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 remote lockout that grants you five different compression settings to optimize your ride for low and high rates of speed and various types of terrain. The 15mm thru-axle increases the front end stiffness for enhanced steering and traction. Tie in the Avid Elixir 7 Hydraulic Disc brakes with 180mm front and 160mm rear rotors and you have one of the best in class values for a 29er at this level, period. SRAM provides the 10 speed drivetrain with the premium quality and style of the X7 Front derailleur, X9 Type 2 Rear Derailleur and the S1400 10spd crankset. Add in Diamondback SL-7 double wall rims with WTB Wolverine Race tires and you are set to conquer any and all obstacles. Easton EA70 XC 31.8mm alloy handlebars, stem, and seatpost with M-Race saddle round out the cockpit.
