To understand a little about the pedigree of Diamondback bicycles, knowing the name Centurion Bicycles is paramount. Formed in 1969, Centurion began importing bikes into the United States. Over a twenty-year span, it evolved into Centurion/Diamondback and then simply Diamondback. In 1999, Raleigh Bicycles, a prominent brand with a 100-plus year history beginning in Nottingham, England in 1886, bought Diamondback, lending its road design expertise to the brand.

The remaining tubes integrate with carbon welding, or as it's also know, Tube-to-Tube construction. This adds compliance to the frame, meaning that you'll never feel the harsh, bouncy ride that's so often associated with stiff carbon frames. Diamondback's DB Carbon Road Fork completes the frame. It was constructed using Continuous Fiber Te...
