Whether you are new to the trails or a seasoned single track rider, the Response series offers uncompromised performance without compromising your bank account. Combining the perfect blend of hardtail performance with rugged utility, the Response Comp is a top notch value oriented build ready for any new rider or trail enthusiast.
At the heart of each Response is our rugged Diamondback 6061-T6 aluminum frame with formed top and down tubes providing strength and style with clean lines. A machined headtube adds strength and style while forged drop outs with a replaceable hanger add the finer touches. The components provide more proof of our commitment to providing you with the most appropriate package and value for your money.
An SR Suntour XCR-LO 100mm travel fork offers 30mm stanchions with a speed lock lever and rebound adjust. Being able to lock out the fork on the fly is a nice touch and adds to its climbing ability. Also on deck is a set of Shimano M445 Hydraulic disc brakes with 6-bolt rotors (180mm frt / 160mm rear) offering ample stopping power. The Shimano Alivio 9spd Octalink crankset (22/32/44t) is the perfect set up for powering the HG30 9spd Cassette (11-34t) and an Alivio front and Deore rear derailleur keep it all running and shifting smoothly.
The Kenda Klaw 2.1 tires are the perfect rubber to move the Weinmann MX260D Doublewall wheels over, around, or through anything in its path. Diamondbacks signature alloy SL318s stem and Oversize 31.8mm Mid Rise handlebar create the perfect cock pit while the SL309p Alloy Micro Adjust 30.9mm post and DB low profile All Mountain saddle ensure that you can pedal all day long.
If a solid and reliable all-purpose mountain bike is what you’re after; a Response is the one for you.
