Diamondback Arden 2 Road Bike (2018)


SKU 02-1110020

The Arden 2 pairs the cutting-edge technology of our highest-end bikes with a competitive component mix. The end result? A bike that delivers amazing performance at an equally amazing price.

The bike’s frame is made from custom formed and butted aluminum tubes that are not only stylish, but also the perfect balance of strength and lightweight performance.

Our Enhanced Performance Geometry places you in a riding position that is still fast and “aero,” yet upright enough to be sustained comfortably on longer rides. To take that comfort a step further, we also designed the Arden 2 with a female-friendly size range and touchpoints.

We spent nearly as much time fine-tuning the Arden 2’s parts package. Tektro disc brakes add an extra measure of safety and control while an 18-speed Shimano drivetrain provides all the gears you’ll need to meet any challenge.

Ready Ride bikes are shipped 95 percent assembled. Typical bike assembly is time-consuming and requires technical know-how. Ready Ride reduces the time and skills needed for the final, four-step assembly.
