Our guys over at 44Racing have done a great write up on their 2015 Team issue Mission Pro, this bike is an All Mountain/Enduro capable machine designed to take on what you can throw at it.
“The 2015 Mission Pro is Diamondbacks all new Enduro machine, boasting 160mm of travel at the front and rear and 27.5” wheels, the bike is the perfect rig to tackle the steepest of climbs and the gnarliest of descents.
Diamondback have re-developed their knucklebox suspension system, which has worked so well on their previous models, to create a much lighter and more controlled linkage.
According to Hatch, the Mission pro is long and slack with a 65 degree head angle while running a 160mm fork and a long wheel base setting it up perfectly for the steep and technical tracks seen at present.
The 44Racing team bikes are built up with suspension from Rockshox, gearing and brakes from Sram and finished with Kore USA componentry
