Buy from Amazon.com

Are you a dyed in the wool hardtail fan, or just want to try something new? The Diamondback Axis LT offers up classic cross country hardtail performance, but with a bit of a modern trail-riding spin with their 27.5″/650b-sized wheels. The Axis LT’s foundation is a butted 6061 aluminum frame that strikes a balance between light weight and durability. Up front a SR Suntour XCT fork with 100mm of travel does wonders to smooth out the terrain and optimize handling. The 27.5″/650b wheels enable you to roll smoothly over obstacles in the trail while being more nimble than the bigger 29″ wheel size – the perfect sweet spot between 26″ wheels and 29ers. The Diamondback SL-7 aluminum wheels on the Axis LT are rock solid performers built for strength and low maintenance. Tektro’s Aries mechanical disc brakes serve up oodles of stopping power while the Shimano 24-speed drivetrain will keep you pedaling smoothly over hill or dale.
