Whatever your mission—from big backcountry days to hitting the bike park to hanging with the after work crew—Diamondback's Mission 2 is ready, willing, and more than capable. It pairs Diamondback's Knuckle Box rear linkage with impeccable Fox suspension for 160mm of buttery-smooth front and rear travel. Thru-axles on both ends keep the 27.5-inch wheels, wrapped in Schwalbe Hans Dampf tires, drifting, hooking, and floating in and out of corners. A crisp-shifting Race Face/SRAM 11-speed drivetrain provides the go, while SRAM DB 5 disc brakes lend control before things get too hectic. On top of all that, there's a dropper post and Diamondback's wide ProBar handlebar and stubby stem to up the radness. Whatever your mission, the Mission 2 opens up a whole new realm of what's possible.

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.
