Release 2 Mountain Bike (2020)


SKU: ed92d207ddbf Category:



Climb any mountain, shred any descent — this bike turns heads.

The Release turned heads and earned rave reviews from the cycling press when it debuted. Diamondback is proud of that fact, but (at the risk of sounding conceited) they’re not entirely surprised. Diamondback’s patent-pending Level Link system is the best-pedaling suspension design they’ve ever cooked up. What’s more, the bike’s progressive geometry helps make the Release fast and flickable, yet supremely confident at high speeds. It’s a winning combination. Diamondback equipped the Release 2 with a host of reliable components, including Shimano SLX 12-speed and a 150mm Fox Rhythm 34 fork — a fork that plows through big hits without diving or flexing. Tackle tough climbs and fast, steep, technical descents aboard the Release 2.
