Diamondback Overdrive Sport 29er Mountain Bike - 2014 Performance ExclusiveBack with a vengeance for 2014 is the Diamondback Overdrive Sport; one of our all-time best selling 29ers. The Overdrive Sport steps up 29er cross country riding with a refined drivetrain and capable suspension. There's no denying the rock crawling, root crushing power of a larger 29" wheel. Making the largest of obstacles the smallest of matters is a defining trait of these bikes. By offering decreased rolling resistance, increased traction when cornering and improved ground clearance, a 29er is sure to sway even the staunchest skeptic.
Here are some of the many benefits of a 29" wheel:
- Angle of Attack -- Larger wheels decrease your angle of attack by allowing you to roll over obstacles easier and faster. Bigger wheel = smaller obstacle.
- Momentum -- A larger wheel enables one to carry momentum easier though obstacles.
- Surface Contact -- 29"wheels are less prone to sinking in soft material such as sand and mud due to the larger contact patch causing lower ground pressure. The longer contact patch increases cornering and straight line traction
- Stability -- The relative position of the bottom bracket/cranks to the axles in the wheels also means that your relative center of gravity is lower. This results in a feeling of riding "in" the bike rather than on top of it.
- Tire Clearance -- with more tire choices than any platform, the 29"wheel easily accommodates off road as well as commuting tires.
- Taller Riders -- 29" bikes tend to offer taller riders a more natural-feel and frame geometry.
The Diamondback Overdrive Sport takes 29ers to a new level. The new 2013 6061-T6 Aluminum Overdrive series frame boasts newly formed top and down tubes, a machined headtube, and forged drop outs for added durability. The ever so sloping top tube provides ample standover clearance. A 71° head tube angle and a 73° seat tube angle create the perfect XC/trail geometry. The 390mm (15.4 inch) chainstays equate to an extremely responsive rig.
An SR Suntour XCR-LO 29 gives you 100mm of travel for the perfect amount of cushion up front. The Shimano Acera front and rear derailleurs and SL-M310 shifters make shifting easy. While coming down the mountain, you'll greatly appreciate the Shimano BR-M395 hydraulic disc brakes and their superior stopping power. Weinmann SL-7 double wall rims with WTB Wolverine Race supply support and improve handling.
