Why We Like The Release 29 3 Mountain Bike
We’re sure to be ripping down fresh trails on our Diamondback Release 29 3 and hitting all the side features the fun-loving trail builders have to offer. The Release 29 gets the full Shimano XT treatment and an impressively tuned suspension to get us through the sloppiest of days. The Release 29 rolls on big 29in wheels and uses 130mm of suspension in the rear to support big hits and aggressive riding. We’re more than excited to see the Diamondback coming on strong with a high-quality drivetrain and suspension components fixed to a quality aluminum frame with easy-to-service parts.
Geometry on the Release 29 has us begging for the tight and twisty singletrack to keep the hits coming. The bike uses a fairly steep 67.7-degree head tube angle but paired with efficient 29in wheels, finds itself rolling over just about anything. The wheelbase on the bike is a modern 1159mm on a size medium, this means that we can maneuver the bike through tight and twistys while still staying confident when the speed gets high. Diamondback specs the Release 29 with CNC’d aluminum pedals complete with removable pins, so we won’t need to be dropping cash on extra accessories right out of the gate.
Specs on the Release 29 3 really impress us with a mix of high-quality components from Shimano and Fox suspension supporting our wildest riding endeavors. A full Shimano XT drivetrain adorns the bike, from the shifter to the derailleur and even the cassette we’re getting to enjoy the best and smoothest shifting in the business. External cable routing makes bleeds and replacements a breeze since we don't need to fish line out of the frame. Fox suspension comes in the performance package, giving much of the same performance as the high-end bits but without the excessive price tag to boot.
*Due to unprecedented demand in the global supply chain and the bike industry over the last 18 months, material weight and exact components are subject to change. We are working diligently to keep tech specs updated, and any adjustments will be minor. If you have any questions, reach out to a Gearhead by chatting online or calling 1-888-276-7130.
