You might be able to shoehorn yourself onto a bike that doesn’t fit or that sacrifices comfort on the altar of speed, but for how long? And more importantly, why make that compromise in the first place?
Diamondback hand-built the all-carbon Arden 5 C to be the smoothest women’s bike you’ll find. Precisely engineered seat stays keep the bike’s ride supple. Front and rear thru-axles create the best possible stability and tracking. Make no mistake, the Arden 5 C is blazingly quick and remarkably comfortable, even after hours spent turning the pedals.
The bike’s kit is just as impressive. A Shimano 105 2x11 drivetrain delivers accurate, drama-free shifting and hydraulic disc brakes increase your control in all conditions. A HED Flanders C2+ wheelset rolls quick and true, year after year.
Ride farther, ride faster… ride without compromising a thing.
