It’s not hard to make a good spare-no-expenses bike. The challenge is to make a great bike that people can actually afford. Challenge accepted … and met. The Arden 4 C features the same state-of-the-art carbon fiber frame and fork as our top-tier models and a price tag that’s well below that of the competition.

Did Diamondback tuck a weak part somewhere into the mix? They did not. The Arden 4 C wears a smart and solid blend of components that include a Shimano Tiagra 2×10 drivetrain, powerful Tektro disc brakes and a lightweight HED Flanders C2+ wheelset.

Most importantly, the Arden 4 C benefits from an exacting blend of high- and low-modulus carbon fiber as well as our progressive Enhanced Performance Geometry. At the end of the day, no bike is a “good deal” if it doesn’t inspire you to get out there and ride. By that measure, the Arden 4 C is absolutely priceless.

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.
