“Comfort and convenience of upright geometry with the swift efficiency of a road bike“
The Clarity series fits into the Performance Hybrid category. Taking the best from both the mountain and road worlds, The Performance Hybrid combines their elements to create the ultimate machine. Larger-diameter 700c wheels offer an efficient platform for this nimble, lightweight bike that’s suitable for commuting, training or simply a weekend ride. Our Clarity series also embraces performance factors valued by today’s training racers and charity riders.
The Clarity series falls into our Devine Designs line which pays tribute to women riders. The collection features bike geometries built for women’s smaller frames and colors that reflect women’s tastes in aesthetics. You’ll find the same devotion to technology and elegant craftsmanship that’s engineered into all of our Diamondbacks – in designs specifically tailored towards the female rider.
The 2013 Clarity 2 performance hybrid is aimed to please those who commute, train, exercise, or are simply looking for a smooth riding bike to recreate on. The jewel of the bike is the Clarity 6061-T6 Butted Aluminum Performance Hybrid frame with a formed/hooded top tube, an integrated headtube, and vertically compliant stays (VCS).
Fit specifically for the frame is a Clarity Integrated Alloy aero straight blade fork keeping your ride smooth, stable and precise. Shimano provides a great blend of quality components including cranks, bottom bracket, 8spd shifters, cassette and derailleurs. Equation R23 Doublewall rims provide solid structured wheels capable of all day rides.
Alloy linear pull brakes provide plenty of stopping power to keep you out of harm’s way. The rest of the cockpit is proprietary Diamondback alloy with an oversized 31.8mm handlebar and 3D Forged 7° stem to give the appropriate rise for maximum steering control and comfort.
A DB Performance Hybrid saddle with gel sits atop a 27.2mm alloy micro adjust seat post offering an exceptionally comfortable ride whether that be in your next cause ride or simply around the block.
The Diamondback Clarity 2 is electric blue and comes in four sizes specifically designed for women: WXS (13"), WS (15"), WM (17"), WL (19"). If you are looking for a performance hybrid for commuting, training or simply a weekend ride … look no further.
