Diamondback Sync’r Review
When we decided to get our hands on the Diamondback Sync’r, we found ourselves getting a little excited. This was an aluminum hardtail that wasn’t on the expensive end as far as high end bikes went. With 27.5” wheels and Tektro hydraulics for the brakes, the bike was a legend in our minds.
When we saw the lovely RockShox form with 120mm travel distance, we were taken at once. The angles of the head and the seat were actually less sharp than we had expected them to be, which meant that the bike seemed up for the challenge that some of the tougher trails presented to it.
Of course, the fact that it was a hardtail bike was a little daunting, but it handled really well on the climbs. One does have to watch out for the weight of the bike on the steeper inclines, though, as it can take a little more effort than a typical machine. However, it was pretty amazing on the descents, as we soon found out!
- Great brakes and design
- 120mm fork
- Slack angles for sportier use
- Good for climbing
- Weight can be an issue at times
The Sync’r is a bike that is made for the climber and the freewheeler in you. It has the ability to stun and awe in equal amounts, and is very worth the price you pay.
We were really pleased with the performance of the bike as well as the fact that it was relatively inexpensive when compared to most other bikes in its class. The Diamondback Sync’r really left its mark with us.
