Diamondback did an amazing job building out the Recoil Pro 29 mtb to make for a pretty ideal beginner model for those who are just getting their feet wet with trail riding and are searching for an entry level full-suspension mountain bike. As with all of their Recoil full suspension models, they were designed with a solid platform in mind making them completely upgrade able if you should opt to go up with your components to another higher performance level.
The foundation for the Recoil was based firmly around a Trail 6061 T-6 Alloy frame that provides 4 inches of rear suspension travel. These new Diamondback frames utilize butted and formed tubes that were shared from their nicer Sortie models. They also have sealed cartridge bearings at the pivot points. The engineers also designed the Recoil 29 frame around a single pivot platform to keep the full suspension part less complicated, which will require much less maintenance for you down the road, simply because of fewer moving suspension parts to wear things out quicker.
This new 2014 aluminum frame platform wasn’t the only improvement to be had on the new Recoil mtb. Diamondback applied a Rock Shox Monarch R rear shock that matches perfectly with Rock Shox’s new plush Recon Silver 29, Solo Air front suspension fork that also has the same 4 inches (100mm) of travel, that has a remote lockout along with adjustment for rebound dampening.
For the Pro drive train and components department Diamondback used a 9-speed Shimano SL-M430 Alivio Rapidfire shifter set to control the derailleurs. The rear derailleur is a Deore SGS model, along with an Alivio for the front. For the Cassette it’s a Shimano HG30 (11-34t) model that is paired up with some Shimano FCM Octalink cranks ( chainring sizes are 22/32/42t) to provide 24 mt’n crushing gears to pick from. Their is also some awesome and reliable hydraulic disc brake stopping power here with the M395 with 6″ rotors, to provide all of the breaking you could possibly need if you get yourself in a pinch while trying something new… last but not least are the DB SL-7 M-Series Double wall wheels to provide a stable yet tough 29″ platform for the mountain bike to roll out on for years to come.
For the cockpit Diamondback used their signature aluminum 6061 stem and SL318b over-sized Riser bar to create a perfect point of steering, along with an SL309p aluminum Micro Adjust seat post and a WTB VOLT Comp seat to make sure you can pedal your ride all day long, if so desire. Anythings possible pedaling 29ers!
The Diamondback Recoil Pro 29 is available with the Red/white color and sizes of: Small (16″), Medium (18″), Large (20″)
