Diamondback Release 5C
Diamondback’s go-to trail bike over the past few years has been the Release. A bike that features their Level-Link suspension system with 130mm of travel and a 150mm fork to help smooth out rocky terrain. The Release is an all-around trail bike balancing performance and value. For this First Ride, we hit the trails with Diamondback’s top of the line Release 5C carbon model.
Mountain Bike Action is a monthly magazine devoted to all things mountain biking (yes, that’s 12 times a year because we never take a month off of mountain biking). It has been around since 1986 and we’re still having fun.
