Whether you are new to the trails or a seasoned singletrack rider, our Axis series models offer an uncompromised quality without compromising your bank account. The perfect blend of hardtail performance with rugged utility, the Axis is a value oriented build ready for any new rider or trail enthusiast looking to jump into the mountain bike scene. For 2014 our Axis series models are combining the trail crushing dominance of the 29” wheel with the agility of the 26” wheel; bring on the 27.5!

Why 27.5” Wheelset?
While this is an ongoing debate amongst the masses there are notable benefits to the 27.5” wheel that continue to contribute to its growing popularity. Lower rolling resistance and better traction giving you a smoother ride similar to that of the 29”, but with less geometry and suspension travel limitations, or toe clearance concerns. In the end you have a smoother ride than a 26” wheel and greater torsional stiffness and durability than a 29” wheel. Our new, custom SL-7 27.5” Doublewall wheels have been served up to keep you charging ahead on every trail.

At the core of our new 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 replaceable hanger. Sure to turn heads on the trail, the ultra-sleek yet simple lines of this frame blends uncompromised strength with unique style like only we know how.

The components provide more proof of our commitment to providing you with the most comprehensive, value-packed deal on the market today. A RockShox XC 30 TK 27.5 fork with 100mm travel, turnkey lockout, and external rebound compression adjustment keeps the front end responsive against the trail. The Turnkey Lockout feature allows you to customize the feel of the fork for maximum performance. Engage the Lockout to help you on those long ascents or enduring flat sections; it is sure to take you further and faster with less energy exerted.

The Avid Elixir-1 Hydraulic Disc brakes are fit to help you take on the most challenging trails around with 180mm front and 160mm rear G2CS rotors, while the grippy Schwalbe Rapid Rob tires give you balanced control on every surface.

SRAM takes total control of the 10 speed drivetrain with features like the S800 crankset with replaceable rings (22/32/42t), X-5 Trigger Shifters, front and rear derailleurs, and PG-1030 cassette (11-36t).

Our customized DB spec’d cockpit is dialed to the tune of a 3D forged 7° rise stem, ‘no-rise’ Flat Handlebar, and a 30.9 Micro Adjust Seatpost topped off with a DB Race Saddle. No doubt a formula that equals all day comfort in or out of the saddle.

For 2014 we are launching a new era of all-purpose mountain bikes. The Axis Comp boasts a new platform with the same value-packed, rugged reliability you’ve come to know and love about Diamondback.
