Part of a long-distance pedigree, the Diamondback Podium 4 road bike is built to go far and do so swiftly, thanks to a light build that features Shimano Ultegra components.
Lightweight and stiff, butted aluminum frame features a geometry that's well-suited to long days in the saddle, making it efficient and stable over the long haul
Carbon fork helps reduce weight and damp road vibrations; tapered steerer increases strength and stiffness for precise handling
BB30 bottom bracket shell design increases stiffness for improved power transfer
Shimano Ultegra shifters and derailleurs offer superb shifting across the 20 gear combinations
FSA Gossamer Pro compact crankset is paired with a wide-ranging 11-28t cassette to supply a complete gear range that's inclined to smooth out challenging gradients
Light low-spoke-count wheels are wrapped with Michelin Dynamic Sport tires to deliver fast-accelerating, grippy and smooth-rolling performance
