Diamondback Recoil Pro Bike -
Diamondback Recoil Pro Bike 2014.
As its name implies, the Diamondback Recoil is poised to deliver a springy reaction to a diversity of terrain. Full-suspension design and 29" wheel size produce a bike that can take a beating and keep bouncing back. The Recoil Pro is a great beginner bike for those just getting into aggressive riding or those who are looking for an entry level full suspension rig. It was built with a solid platform in mind and is fully upgradeable should you so choose to step up your component package to the next level.
The foundation for the Recoil is firmly laid with an all-new 6061 T-6 Aluminum Trail frame sporting 4" of travel via the RockShox Monarch R air rear shock. The frame uses a machine formed top tube and a butted and formed down tube; the same technology found on Diamondback's Sortie series. It uses a sealed cartridge bearing pivot and is built around an optimized single pivot design--the simplest type of rear suspension with fewer moving parts. It consists of a pivot just above the bottom bracket, slightly up on the down tube and a single swingarm to the rear axle. Being that the rear triangle directly attaches to the rear shock, the shock has a more linear spring rate and offers good small bump compliance.The Recoil features the RockShox Monarch R air rear shock to compliment the RockShox Recon Silver 29 fork. This fork features rebound dampening adjust, a turnkey lock out, and a 15mm Thru Axle for greater torsional stiffness up front. The lockout allows the rider to limit the travel of the fork for an enhanced climbing experience.
The Recoil Pro comes stocked with an excellent mix of rock-solid componentry. The Shimano SL-M430 Rapidfire 9-speed shifters control an Alivio front and a Deore SGS rear derailleur. The HG30 9-spd Cassette (11-34t) and the Shimano FCM-521 9-spd Octalink crankset ( 22/32/44t) combined present 27 mountain crushing gear combinations to choose from. The Hayes HMX-5 mechanical disc brakes with 6" rotors provide all of the breaking power needed and the 32h Diamondback SL-7 M-Series Doublewall wheelset provides a tough and stable platform for your bike to roll over whatever dares get in your path. Diamondback's signature alloy AL6061 Ahead stem and SL318b oversized mid-rise handlebar create the perfect cockpit while the SL309p Alloy Micro Adjust 30.9mm post and WTB VOLT Comp saddle ensure that you stay comfortable enough to pedal all day long.
