Diamondback Century Sport Road Bike - 2017
There are many ways to ride faster on the road, but quite often you need to sacrifice comfort to achieve higher speeds. That is not the case with the Diamondback Century Sport road bike. You can jump into road riding with this well-equipped and comfortable bike. Diamondback has designed the Century Sport to remove as many barriers, from fit to ride quality, to accessibility. If you're thinking about joining the ranks of road riders, this bike will make your decision easy.
The completely redesigned Century Sport features high quality aluminum frame and fork. The 7005 aluminum alloy frameset has formed tubes for durability and great power transfer, making it able to perform when called upon. The overall ride benefits from the Enhanced Performance Geometry, which utilizes a taller headtube to put you in a slightly more upright position than a race bike. Imperceptible to most, the advantages of EPG make themselves apparent towards the end of a ride, when your neck and back experience much less fatigue.
The Century Sport has a 2×8 Shimano drivetrain and a great mix of FSA and Shimano components to keep you on the road and enjoying it. A Diamondback Equation SE wheelset with Kenda K196 700x26c tires are durable and the wider tire footprint as comfort and traction. Compact road gearing and a DB Performance saddle are nice touches to an endurance bike designed to keep you comfortable over the long haul.
