For starters, it’s capable of, well, just about anything you have the nerve and ability, to attempt to try.
Diamondback’s Hook delivers a pure and simple mountain bike experience, reflecting the evolution of the hardtail: it’s light, responsive, and just plain fun to ride.
This includes those quick rips on your local trails or the day-long butt suffering fests that have you pedaling away into the zone.
The DiamondBack Hook is equipped with the same low-slung, modern frame as its well-heeled Line and Sync’r siblings.
Long in the front, short in the back, low and maneuverable. the DiamondBack is quick and precise on tight trails, yet rock steady when you are going full throttle down the steepest, windest, descents.
The most impressive thing about the Hook, however, might just be its price.
The best news is that the price tag won’t burn a hole in your checking account.
By equipping the Hook with some awesome, yet affordable components, including a 120mm fork, a simple and effective single-ring drivetrain, powerful, long-lasting disc brakes, and fast-rolling 27.5” wheels.
These are ‘Ready Ride’ bikes that are shipped 85% assembled.
Usually, mountain bike assembly is time-consuming and often requires technical know-how.
This reduces the time and skills needed, for the final, pretty quick, four-step assembly.
