Built for shock absorption and speed, the Diamondback Recoil Full Suspension Mountain Bike brings a higher level of excellence while keeping the cost low. Slightly less costly than the Diamondback Recoil Comp model, this mid range mountain bike offers some of the key features offered by the Comp but without the hefty price tag.
One of the features that the Recoil offers that is also found on the Recoil Comp is the durable 4 inch heat treated aluminum frame. This type of frame offers sturdy performance for not only the roughest of trails but for gentle commutes as well. The full suspension makes the Recoil mountain bike easier to control on any terrain which is equally ideal for beginners and seasoned mountain bikers alike.
Priced at $629, this is considered a high entry level to low mid range mountain bike. Compared to the nearly $1000 Recoil Comp model, this bike is affordable for many budgets while still offering high levels of quality and durability. Those new to the realm of full suspension mountain bikes may find the cost steep but this is a fairly reasonable price for the features offered.
Those who prefer full suspension to hardtail mountain bikes will be pleased with the Diamondback Recoil model as its frame and suspension is on par with many of the more expensive bikes and does not skimp on construction. While it lacks some of the features of some of the more expensive mountain bikes, it does borrow some of the core options from the Recoil Comp edition.
For those uncertain whether a full suspension mountain bike is for them it should be noted that a full suspension bike is often heavier than a hardtail mountain bike. Aside from the difference in weight, full suspension bikes do require slightly more effort to pedal on rougher terrain but the trade off is that they have better handling and are often more comfortable.
With a lifetime frame warranty, the Diamondback Recoil Full Suspension Mountain Bike makes a great mid range mountain bike for all level of riders. The durable frame and suspension will last for a long time to come through both rough trails and easy paved roads.
