With fast 27.5 inch wheels and butted Aluminum frame (6061-T6), the Diamondback Axis XE is very light-weight and agile mountain bicycle, packed with high-end components. 

Equipped with Shimano Altus front derailleur and SRAM X4 rear derailleur, you will have enjoyable shifting experience through 24 gear combinations. The Axis XE can handle a lot of stuff that you throw at it, but be careful on bigger jumps or drops (especially if you are a beginner).
