Diamondback Trace 3 (2018)

Sold out


Go wherever the spirit takes you — that’s the overriding mission of Diamondback's top-rung Trace 3 model. The heart of this bike is its 6061-T6 aluminum frame, a careful arrangement of meticulously shaped tubes. The goal? Maximize strength and durability where it’s needed most, while saving as much weight as possible.

While the Trace 3 isn’t going to be the first model you reach for when lining up at a mountain bike race, it is more than capable of tackling dirt roads and, yes, even light mountain biking duties. And, yet, if the days’ journey is an all-asphalt affair, the light and efficient bike makes easy work of city streets and country lanes.

A bike capable of taking you anywhere needs equally capable components. To that end, we gave the Trace 3 powerful and reliable Avid mechanical disc brakes and a Suntour NVX HLO suspension fork that smooths out the roughest of roads.

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.


  • 6061-T6 aluminum alloy frame is durable and lightweight
  • Suspension fork helps absorb bumps from rough roads and trails
  • Powerful Avid disc brakes increase your control and confidence
  • Dual sport tires roll fast and smooth on pavement with traction for trail use
  • Shimano’s 3x9 speed drivetrain provides all the gears you’ll need
