Made for riders who are looking to knock out as many trail miles as they possibly can, the Mission Two is the quintessential all-mountain bike. It all starts with a robust hydroformed aluminum frame with Diamondback's famous KnuckleBox suspension and a beefy thru-axle, keeping it solid and flex-free. Fox handles the bumps, with a Float 36 fork and Float Evol LV rear shock each providing 160mm of travel. The SRAM GX 1×11 drivetrain stays silent whether you’re pedaling or coasting, free of chain-slap and a pesky front derailleur. Diamondback Blanchard 27.5" wheels wrapped in WTB Vigilantes grab every last bit of traction on the trail, and stopping power comes from hydraulic SRAM brakes with 180mm rotors. With a dropper post standard, there really isn’t a bike that competes at this level. The Mission Two is absolutely equipped to exceed your expectations.

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.
