Derived from the playful attitude of the Catch, the Release 29 was born. With a focus on high-mileage days with a high shred factor, Diamondback modified the geometry to accommodate larger wheels while maintaining the smooth and progressive nature of their Level Link suspension. Outfitted with performance oriented Fox suspension, the Release 29 provides excellent responsiveness that boasts small bump compliance while maintaining a bottomless feel for the hard hits that inevitably come with riding steep, technical terrain. Lastly, being fitted with a Shimano SLX M7100 1 x 12 speed drivetrain and brakes, the Release is ready to conquer with complete and utter confidence whatever obstacles the trails throw your way.
