Diamondback Axis Comp 27.5 Bike - 2014


This product is no longer available, but don't go just yet.


  • Diamondback Axis Comp 27.5 mountain bike is quicker and lighter than 29ers, but offers the same benefits of large-diameter wheels—more speed and better traction
  • Compared to 26 in. wheels, larger-diameter wheels roll over obstacles more easily so you won't stall going uphill over roots and loose soil
  • RockShox XC 30 suspension fork supplies 100mm of travel for smoothing out rough trails, and its turnkey lockout offers increased performance on climbs
  • SRAM X5 drivetrain features intuitive trigger shifters and responsive derailleurs to offer dependable shifts throughout the 30 gear combinations
  • Butted 6061-T6 aluminum frame offers a lightweight and agile feel in the saddle with high durability to take the punishment that rough trails can dish out
  • Diamonback SL-7 rims are wrapped with Schwalbe Rapid Rob tires for good all-around traction on the trail
  • Platform pedals don't require bike-specific shoes, making it easy to go from off-road to around town
  • Specs on the Diamondback Axis Comp 27.5 mountain bike are subject to change


All bicycles sold at REI include a free warranty tune-up. New bikes go through a normal break-in period, after which readjustment is important for longevity and performance. Bring your new bike in to your local REI for its free tune-up within 20 hours of use or 6 months from purchase, whichever comes first. Contact your nearest REI bike shop to schedule this important service.

An oversize shipping charge of $60 applies to this item (plus regular shipping fees). Or ship it FREE to any REI store for pickup.
