The Podium Equipe exudes this spirit of competition. Designed in collaboration with some of the greatest minds in the business, this is our fastest and most aero Podium to date. Our Advanced Monocoque Molding Process SLP carbon construction creates a sub-900 gram frame that is built for elite competition. Its unique layup uses over 300 individual pieces of carbon laminate, with a mix of characteristics to optimize ride and performance: it’s plenty compliant to go the distance, yet stiff enough for out-of-the saddle climbs and do-or-die sprints. The Continuous Fiber Technology fork and tapered head tube provide unbeatable steering precision, delivering confidence in a nervous peloton or high speed corners. With its unmatched ride quality and a superior build, the Podium Equipe is a world class road race machine. This bike is part of the new Diamondback Ready Ride Program. Hand built and shipped ride ready in a few easy steps! Diamondback Ready Ride bikes eliminate the usual hassle of tedious at-home bike assembly, an often-ignored process that can take hours. Our program allows you to spend less time assembling your new bike and more time riding it. Ready Ride bikes are hand-built nearly to completion and shipped straight to you. All you need to do is put on the front wheel, seat, and pedals. Yes, the brakes are dialed in and the derailleurs are adjusted: just pump up the tires and go!
