| Merchant: Performance Bicycle Diamondback Century 5 Carbon Disc Road Bike - 2017. Big rides with long mileage and changes in road grades need a specialized bike. You need a bike with a comfortable fit and premium features, without sacrificing important performance characteristics that produce the speed you need. The Diamondback Century 5 carbon road bike features a hand built carbon fiber monocoque frame and Diamondback's comfort Enhanced Performance Geometry (EPG) . With Shimano Ultegra 11-speed components, HED Flanders C2+ wheels, and front and rear thru-axles, the Century 5 isn't your average weekend distance bike. The Century road bike makes a few minor tweaks to traditional road bike geometry that put you in a slightly more upright position, helping fight off fatigue without sacrificing performance. Completely redesigned for 2017, the Century 5 is hand-built from high quality carbon fiber, enhancing the benefits of the geometry. And with hydraulic disc brakes and thru-axles tucked into the sculpted frame, this bike's effortless ride is even easier to control. A full Shimano Ultegra 211 group, HED wheels and finishing kit, and Continental Grand Sport Race 28c tires round out this smooth build. If you're ready to summit a mountain pass, or even if you're not, it's great to know your bike can handle it should you go for it. The Century 5 Carbon is a road bike that you'll be able to ride all weekend.
