With big wheels, full-squish and a whole lot of fun, the Diamondback Sortie 3 29er delivers superb trail performance and features Fox suspension, Shimano XT parts and a healthy heaping of awesome. 6061-T6 Weapons Grade Aluminum frame boasts an array of hydroformed and butted and formed tubes along with a tapered head tube to deliver a strong, stiff and responsive ride. The heart of the Sortie 2 is the Knuckle Box platform, which keeps the rear suspension low, tight and plush to optimize efficiency, small-bump compliance and leverage ratios. Fox 32 Float CTD FIT 29 Air fork has 120mm of travel with 3 simple and effective CTD settings (Climb, Trail, Descend); also has external compression and rebound adjustment. Float FIT (Fox Isolated Technology) uses a bladder system within the fork to ensure that the air does not mix with the oil, maximizing performance and consistent damping. Fox Float CTD Air rear shock features Boost Valve technology along with the CTD ProPedal platform to give the bike plush, efficient suspension with great bottom-out protection. Shimano XT 2x10 drivetrain offers sturdy performance with consistent, precise shifts and a gear range savvy enough to handle races and all-day riding. Shimano XT hydraulic disc brakes put responsive, progressive braking control in your hands with a 180mm rotor up front and 160mm rotor in the back. Tough and light WTB Laser Disc Trail rims are outfitted with WTB Wolverine Comp folding tires, which handle everything from loose to hardpacked trails. 15mm thru axle up front and 142x12mm thru axle in the rear ensure stiff, strong performance at the critical wheel/frame interface. Oversize 1.5 in. tapered steerer on the fork pairs with the tapered head tube to ensure plenty of strength and handling precision.
