PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Diamondback Sortie 2 29in Bike Blue 2014

The Sortie 29er was inspired by Diamondback's beloved Sortie 26” platform. The goal, simple: retain ride characteristics of the Sortie trail platform while adding the benefits of a larger diameter wheel. Not a simple task by any means but what they've come up with is a bike that’s being hailed as one of the best 29inch bikes on the market. Diamondback’s Design Philosophy is a no-nonsense approach to building quality bicycles. They want their bike designs to be straightforward: their hardware accessible and their suspension simple. Diamondback’s Sortie 2 brings affordability to a quality build. This 6061-T6 Weapons Grade Aluminum frame features a hydroformed top tube, a butted and formed downtube, a seatstay bridge, tapered headtube, a 142×12mm E-Thru Axle drop out and Diamondback’s legendary Knuckle Box Suspension technology.

  • 6061-T6 Aluminum full suspension frame
  • 29 inch diameter wheels
  • FOX front and rear Suspension
  • 10 speed drivetrain
  • 142x12mm rear thru axle drop out

Sortie 2 - Jun 17, 2014

This bike is a great value. Very good setup for the cost. I had my sortie 2 for a little over a year before the rear hub gave out (one of the few no name components). And the hub was not designed for easy repair. My only other complaint is the head tube angle is a bit steep. You have to be careful on any steeps or drop offs not to endo. If you like diamondback, look close at the Mission line as well.
