The draw: A fast, comfortable ride
The Dimond Xpress brings new technologies to the beam bikes of the past. There are two major advantages to beam bikes: comfort and speed. In the aerobars, the Xpress handles rough roads flawlessly, has great straight-line speed and feels plenty stiff during out-of-the-saddle climbing. Hard, seated climbing promotes some flex in the beam, but nothing too noteworthy. The Xpress is also the least expensive Di2-spec’d bike tested, so it offers a great value. Another cool feature about the Dimond line is that the bikes are all hand-built in the U.S.
