Product Description

AMMP + ORC = Light, Strong and Responsive The Diamondback Podium 7 is our top of the line carbon competition road racing machine. When we first set out planning this project we all agreed that the goal was to create the ultimate road frame. From the aggressive carbon shapes to the latest internal cable housing design, we made this product with no expenses spared. Some of the highlighted features include its sub 900 gram frame to the newly designed tapered Continuous Fiber Technology full carbon fork with integrated carbon crown race. The Podium will surely continue its legacy of winning races at the highest levels of the sport. The process began with many discussions on how to make a carbon road bike more user and performance friendly not just for the top racers of the world but also the weekend road warriors that ride thousands of miles a year. At the same time we strive to maintain the ride quality that is a trademark of Diamondback Podium bikes. We looked at the handling, feel, weight, geometry of each frame and each size so we can make sure every product has our signature Diamondback feel. We then do conceptual sketches, 3D Modeling, Finite Element Analysis (FEA) and then refine it some more before we even make the first steel mold. We set clear and concise goals to make the Podium a world-class frame and we strive to make an already incredible product…better. That is the Diamondback Design Philosophy.

So, I will start with the specs.......my 56cm frame came in at 1000 grams with all hardware (i.e bottom bracket, water bottle cage screws, seat tube collar) and has its decals and matte finish. The fork is stupid light at 290 grams!It is also made of UD carbon, no weave. This to me separates this frame set from most and looks amazing in sunlight. Now, how does it ride? Stiff and responsive! It's geometry, while racey, is still easily ridable for regular rides and century journeys . Mutes all but the harshest roads. What I like most about it though, is its a Diamondback, which almost no one seems to ride as far as road bikes. This makes my bike special and unique. It's not like owning a trek or specialized or even giant, which you see everywhere! I just gotta say it people, just because the pros ride it or it comes from a bike shop doesnt mean it's best or even worth what you're paying. I'm in the retial business and know how much mark-up products can have. So, if you are looking to build up that dream 15lb or less bike, this is one of the best frames, bar none! Just for reference, my frame is built up with full Ultegra 6700, with the new Ultegra carbon pedals, specialized 20 gram carbon cages, Fizik Aliante VS saddle, carbon seat post, Williams Cycling full UD carbon stem and bars along with Boyd Cycling 50mm carbon clichers and my bike weighs 15.6 lbs. If you really want to read up on this amazing frameset, please go to diamondback.com. It really goes into detail about how they make this amazing frame. Best of all, it is Di2 ready. So, it really is a frame you can have for a long time.

Diamondback for years was associated with cheap box store bikes. Although they have made high end mountain bikes now for sometime, they have never really been in the high end road bike arena......until now. The Podium SL frame competes with many, many others that cost oh so much more! I built the bike with Dura Ace 7900, Ritchey and Fizik. The ride is fantastic, stiff but comfortable enough for long rides. Far too often buyers are foolishly blinded solely by a particular brand or name, instead of researching the engineering, materials, design, etc..... I recommend you visit Diamondback's website and see for yourself exactly what goes into making this frameset. Remember, the frame is what they make, everything else that builds a bike is made by others and you can spec to whatever preference you have. The beauty is that this frame is designed for electronic shifting if you choose. If you want to build a truly high end road bike, you must at least consider the Diamondback Podium (soon to receive new name Equipe). Keep up the good work Diamondback, you made a believer out of me. I proudly ride my bike and can easily defend the "brand". I'm really looking forward to the new pro teams riding the frameset in 2014.

I concur with the previous reviewer. Light, stiff, fast. The head tube angle is steep and the bike begins to corner just at the thought. I prefer a little more stability so you actually have to drive it into the turn but whatever. This is "criterium" geometry as we used to call it. I actually ride a Podium 6 frame with all Dura-Ace 7900. With serious race wheels (Reynolds 46 carbon tubulars with an SRAM 1090XG cassette and 160gm tires) this thing could be weight-illegal i.e., under 6.8 Kg. No need to spend $5500 for a dogma Frame... And the Podium 7 is lighter still than the 6. The Podium 7 is the issued rig to a cat 1 team on the east coast.
