The Diamondback Axis XE is a perfect mountain bike for beginners that are interested in starting mountain-biking more seriously. You will get great combination of quality components for affordable price.
Multiple body sizes.
Lacks geometry for bigger jumps/drops.
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).
