Product Description

Diamondback Release 5C Carbon 2018


You can’t have it all … Really? Nobody told that to the Release 5 C. Our top-shelf trail bike is the embodiment of new-school technology. Thanks to Diamondback's Level Link suspension, the Release 5 C absolutely levels the kind of drops and rock gardens that stymie bikes with even more suspension travel. At the same time, Diamondback's patent-pending design allows the Release to accelerate and climb with the kind of blazing efficiency you’d normally expect from a wispy, featherweight race rig.

The Release 5 C, in a nutshell, is the perfect all-rounder. The bike’s modern geometry — long in the front, short in the rear, low in the bottom bracket —lends the bike stability at high speeds without sacrificing agility when the trails get tight.

What’s more, Diamondback has decked this machine out with a peerless parts kit that includes the absolutely bomber Fox 36 Float fork and Fox Performance Elite Float DPX2 rear shock, an ultra-precise SRAM X01 Eagle 12-speed drivetrain, a wheelset with Race Face ARC 30 rims and Novatec hubs, and quick-stopping SRAM Guide RS hydraulic disc brakes with 180mm rotors. A KS LEV Integra dropper post and Race Face Aeffect R cockpit components round out the stellar package.

Ready Ride bikes are shipped 95 percent assembled. Typical bike assembly is time-consuming and requires technical know-how. Ready Ride reduces the time and skills needed for the final, four-step assembly.


Level Link design equals 130mm of efficient yet supple rear suspension

Light and stiff carbon frame with Boost 148x12mm Maxle dropout

Fox 36 Float suspension fork and Fox Performance Elite Float DPX2 shock provide 150/130mm of top-tier suspension

Powerful and easy to adjust SRAM Guide RS hydraulic disc brakes (180mm rotors)

SRAM Eagle X01 12-speed drivetrain is durable and makes easy work of the steepest climbs with its ultra-wide gearing
