Diamondback Knuckle Box

The Knuckle Box, or bell crank, is the core of our single-pivot four-bar suspension platform. Optimally placed pivots equate to a low leverage ratio, and ultimately to superior pedaling efficiency and small-bump compliance.

Diamondback Mason

Enter the Mason All Mountain hardtail. This rig is slack and low slung – meant for today’s shredder who wants to pedal up but charge down with aggressiveness. The Mason features an All Mountain 6061-T6 Weapons Grade Aluminum frame with a formed top tube, a formed and butted down tube, a tapered head tube, ISCG 05 tabs and a 142×12mm Maxle drop out. A 140mm travel Fox 34 TALAS 29 CTD air fork features external rebound, a butted alloy 1.5” Tapered steerer, 34mm Easton aluminum stanchions with magnesium lowers, and a QR15 thru axle. This also lends to a slack, 66.5 degree head angle. Combine this with short, 426mm/ 16.77? long chain stays and you can clearly see where this is going. This keeps the bike maneuverable, easy to manipulate in downhill and aired out sections, and easier to get the front end of the bike up with the slack head angle.
