With 160mm of buttery-smooth front and rear travel, there's a whole new realm of what's possible aboard Diamondback's Mission 1. It pairs Diamondback's ultra-capable Knuckle Box technology with impeccable Fox suspension for a rig that turns the hacked-out terrain into your playground. It rolls on a set of sturdy, through-axle wheels and sports a crisp-shifting Race Face/SRAM 10-speed drivetrain while Shimano hydraulic disc brakes deliver power with modulation on skill-testing descents. On top of all that, grippy Schwalbe Hans Dampf tires, a selection of light aluminum components, and Diamondback's wide ProBar handlebar deliver maximum control to open up a whole new realm.

Diamondback's full-suspension models use their innovative Knuckle Box rear linkage. Designed as a single-pivot, four-bar suspension platform, this low and tight system delivers excellent pedaling efficiency with superb small-bump compliance and big-hit control.

Diamondback optimized the rear wheel rate to make the suspension linear at the beginning of the shock stroke and gradually increase to a more progressive rate. This results in superb small-bump compliance, more perceived travel, and excellent bottom-out protection.

Low Center of Gravity: 
All suspension parts are positioned farther down on the frame for a stable and balanced ride.

Low Leverage Suspension Design: Lower air pressure results in longer shock life, less frame loading and better pedaling.

Tight, Compact Linkage System: 
The rear shock is protected from outside influences.  

Large Anodized Aluminum Hardware: 
Tough Enduro Max bearings and stout aluminum construction provide excellent durabilty with superb lateral stability.
