Diamondback Podium 5 Road Bike - 2013The Diamondback Podium 5 is designed to accommodate the rider looking for incredible performance and comfort. A Shimano 105 drivetrain provides the firepower and an FSA Gossamer Cranks add stiffness and torque. Easton Road wheels add longevity and many miles of hassle-free maintenance.
All of the components are outfitted to a DBR Monocoque Competition Road Frame featuring AMMP Carbon Technology, internal cable routing, carbon drop outs, with a tapered headtube, and Press-Fit 30 BB. The frame is Di2 Compatible should you wish to upgrade further down the road. Along with this comes the partner in crime: a DBR AMMP Carbon Competition Road Fork, with carbon drop outs, a tapered carbon steerer tube, and their proprietary CFT Continuous Fiber Technology.
The features are many, but the result is worth it:
- Continuous Fiber -- Diamondback's Continuous Fiber Technology uses full-length carbon strands to manufacture the fork that extend from the top of the steer tube to the bottom of the drop outs. Using that same AMMP technology employed in the Podium frame, they've created one of the stiffest forks available. With a lower integrated crown race that's completely carbon, they've eliminated the need for a separate aluminum race. This makes the overall system lighter, stronger and more responsive.
- Tapered Head Tube -- 1.5 Tapered head tube provides front end torsional stiffness for precise steering and control.
- Compliant Stays -- Seat tube and seat stays are designed to work together to produce an optimally compliant ride.
- Pressfit 30 --An oversized BB shell coupled with a larger down tube and chain stays provides increased rigidity for out-of-the saddle-sprinting, maximum acceleration, and optimal efficiency.
- Closed Circuit Cabling -- Closed Circuit Cable routing provides a clean, uncluttered, and sleek finish to the frame.
- Carbon Replaceable Front Derailleur Hanger -- lightweight and easy to mount in the correct position.
The Podium 5 Carbon Monocoque Competition Road bike is a bike that can ride with the best of them. It shares the same geometry as the Podium 7 AMMP SL frame. It is not only light, stiff and strong, but easy to steer and comfortable over the course of a long ride as well.
