Diamondback has entered the e-bike segment with the launch of its Get Amped campaign, offering urban dwellers a mix of both road and trail options across four new models.
“It has been incredibly exciting to see our hard work, time spent and energy expended come to fruition with this launch,” said Michael Brown, VP of Product Development for Diamondback. “Our four new e-bikes will hit a sweet spot in the Diamondback lineup, with a solid combination of high-performing components, a streamlined design and unmatched versatility. With options for a wide variety of users, in terms of both end-use and price point, we’re really pleased that these bikes will be at the forefront of Diamondback’s foray into the e-bike market.”
For the road, Diamondback offers the Union 1 and Union 2.
The Union 1 features a lightweight aluminum frame with internal cable routing, a Bosch Performance Line Speed (28mph) motor and a Powertube integrated 400wh battery, as well as a Bosch Purion on-board computer, 10-speed Shimano drivetrain, Tektro hydraulic disc brakes, wide tires on 27.5-inch wheels and an integrated rack and fenders or $3,500.
The Union2 is similarly equipped, but bumps the battery up to a Powertube 500wh, along with an integrated Bosch Kiox on-board computer that’s compatible with Bluetooth heart-rate monitors and Shimano hydraulic disc brakes for $4,100.
For off-road duties, Diamondback offers the Response, which is a Class 3 e-bike that’s fitted with a 350w Bosch Performance Speed (28mph) motor, a 10-speed Shimano drivetrain, Magura hydraulic disc brakes and plus-size Schwalbe tires mounted on tubeless compatible 27.5-inch wheels, while the terrain is smoothed out by a 120mm travel RockShox Judy Gold fork for $4,100.
Rounding out the new lineup, is the Current, another road variant that’s aimed at the urban commuter, which comes with a 500wh Powertube integrated Bosch battery, Shimano 11-speed drivetrain, Maxxis Rambler 700x40c tire and drop handlebars for $4,100.
