Vital 2 is the model that I got one of my daughters on her 14th birthday. She has been using the bike for quite some time now, and by the looks of it, she is still loving how the bike performs even after being used on a regular basis.

The bike was designed by the company keeping a woman in mind. The design matches the elegance of women and can be rough and robust when it needs to be. I could probably be able to write a thesis paper if I had to describe how great this bike was, but I won’t do that.

What I would do is give you a list of all the key features which the model has to offer to its customer, followed by its pros and cons.

This is a gem of a bike. Although I didn’t have the pleasure to spend much time with the bike as I got to review it for less than a week when my daughter borrowed it. But I believe the time was more than enough to have an idea about the bike.

The bike is given a solid design and build using aluminum which is known for its durability. Any women who are looking for an adventurous ride in a beautiful looking bike will get this model. For women, the looks of the product are just as important as its feature, and the designers at Diamondback were well aware of it.

 Enough with the design of the bike let’s move on to the more pressing matters. Matter being, “Features.” It still wows me when I think about how Diamondback was able to get the customer so many features at such a price point. Let’s have a look at the critical elements of the bike, followed by pros and cons.

Saved the best for the last. Edgewood hands down are one of the best bikes that the company manufactures.

Diamondback integrated the relaxed handling of a comfort bike and the wheel of a road bike so well that it doesn’t feel out of place at all.

The bikes feel perfect for riding on and will give you superior control while riding.

One more fantastic factor about the bike is that it allows you to adjust the height and angle of the handlebars which increases the comfort of any user.

For the first product, we are about to feature the Diamondback Calico Bicycle. This is a women’s dual sports bike that is the perfect companion for bumpy and uneven roads. It features precision and stability even in the most dangerous trails and, that is why we think it is worth buying!

Stability

This specific bike is the perfect fit for bumpy roads of unconstructed trails. Because the wheels are well crafted with a friction surface, you will find that it hardly has dirt or solid objects stuck in tires. The stability that it gives the bike makes it a reliable companion when going for mountain climbing or directly in a poorly constructed road.

Precision

Precision is something that this one features the most. With a straight blade used for precise and steep steering, this bike will save you from going the wrong direction on a busy street or in the wild. The disc brake that is part of this bike also gives you the power to rip as per your comfort.

Comfort

With a 21 speed mechanism, this bike is also very comfortable to use. Because of a friction power that is convenient and will keep you safe from drifting, you can ride your bike, however you want. There is also a fast roll traction technology that makes this bike easy to control.

Assembly

The Diamondback comes with a little bit of setting up to do. Unlike most bikes, this is very easy to assemble and barely needs any fancy tools for set up. On top of that, since most of the parts come in the box already assembled, it does not that long to set up the bike. Assemble the front wheel and pump it up, attach the seat and pedals and you’re good to go!

Easy use

There are some bikes out there with a brake that is hard to reach or a seat that needs professional help for adjustment. But not this one! The Diamondback Women’s bike is straightforward to use as well as assemble. It can be tailored as per the sports you will be participating in and the gears added are also very user-friendly.

Highlighted features

  • Perfect for bumpy roads
  • Precise steering technology
  • Comfortable to use
  • Does not take long to set up

What we liked

  • Wheels have good friction power

  • Accurate steering due to steel blades

  • Fast rolling traction

  • Saves a lot of time on set up

What we didn’t like

  • The bike is too heavy

Verdict

All in all, the Diamondback Calico is a pretty sweet bike that you can get at a reasonably decent price. With fast-rolling traction and accurate steering ability, we think this will be worth every penny.

This is another bike from Diamondback that we think has some exciting features. Because it is a sports bike each and every part of this bike was made to be super efficient not only that being a duo hybrid bike, it features fast-growing traction and even when racing is very smooth. We think this bike has the potential to last generations if taken care of properly.

Multipurpose

Although it is generally defined as a sports bike, this bike can be used for casual riding as well. Even beginners can give this bike a shot if they are comfortable with the height and weight. Besides having the ability to make itself compatible with most sports, it can also be used in a comparatively smooth surface as well as a very rough surface.

Efficient

There is so much to talk about in terms of the efficiency of this specific model. Not only are the wheels perfect for all kinds of surfaces, but it has a few added tools that make it compatible for any use. With around 21 gears to assist this bike, you can reach the highest level of efficiency when carrying out any task with this one.

Safe

This specific bike also has a good number of features that make it super safe to use. For starters, the linear pull brake ensures a stiff brake every time without slipping. Not only that, the wheels are made to have a lot of friction so it can hold its position on any surface.

Assembly

Setting this one up is a piece of cake! More than  95% of this bike comes assembled from the manufacturers. So you will need nothing more than some regular tools to get the work done. Based on your experience, it might take around 30 to 60 minutes to assemble the entire thing.

Comfortable

Comfort is key to building a fantastic bicycle. Since this one is great for sports, you know they did their best also to make it comfortable. The springs in this one are very durable and will not lose their bounce quickly. Foaming on the seat is also the soft that doesn’t sink in.

Highlighted features

  • Suitable for racing as well as casual use
  • The seat is very comfortable
  • Linear roller brakes to ensure safety
  • Most parts are assembled

The brand has taken over the bike market by a storm with its collection of amazing bikes which are at an affordable price range. Not only do the bikes look good but are fantastic to ride on.

For me, the selling point for the Diamondback Hybrid bikes was the material which was used to build them. The material being Aluminum, Yes you heard that right. The frame has been made by Aluminum for all the models of the brand, and they didn’t stop there.
