Both slack and sick, the Diamondback Rely women's mountain bike is perfect for the rider that's looking to push further and go faster. A SRAM 1x11-speed drivetrain, 120mm of travel of front suspension, and DB's Weapons Grade aluminum frame make short work of long rides and large obstacles.
The Rely is all about comfort and control. All-mountain riding requires are more slack body position, so that your center of gravity stays low, while bringing the front end closer to your body. That means your body stays more upright and experiences less stress on your hands, back, and neck. The aluminum frame is meant to take a beating and features double-butted and formed tubes. 148 x 12 dropouts stiffen the rear of the frame when under load.
Whether you're dashing down the slopes, or slogging up a hill, you don't need a lot of gears, but you do need the right ones. DB rightly elected a SRAM NX 1x11 drivetrain with a 30-tooth crank and a 11/42 cassette. That's plenty of variety for even the steepest of hills. SRAM Level hydraulic disc brakes provide all of the stop and go you need.
