Diamondback Mission 2 W/knucklebox
Posting ads for 7 years
Mission has become the handsdown favorite of some of the most discriminating riders in the world. The Mission put the ‘all' in ‘all-mountain' and the ‘mountain' back in ‘mountain bike' upon its release, leaving riders wondering where they couldn't ride it and the competition wondering how to respond. Diamondback has spent the time since then refining the Mission and making it even better.
At the heart of the all-mountain Mission is the Knuckle Box bell-crank. With its compact design and welded unibody construction, the Knuckle Box ties the rear suspension components together. It isolates, cradles, and guards the FOX air shock while providing a smooth near-linear suspension ratio through the entire six inches of travel. This low and tight design gives the Mission a lower center of gravity than most all-mountain designs on the market today, resulting in the most balanced and maneuverable bike Diamondback has ever produced. The Knuckle Box is truly the "heart” of the design.
