Diamondback Podium Vitesse Road Bike - 2016 - Shimano Ultegra. At the heart of every great bike is an exceptional frame, and the new Diamondback Podium Vitesse is no exception. The new Podium frame is made with the Advanced Monocoque Molding Process SLP carbon fiber construction method, which uses over 300 individual pieces of carbon to create a bike that is optimized for long, fast rides. The headtube and bottom bracket are stiffer, while the seatstays and seattube are a little more compliant to improve comfort. The result is a sub-900 gram frame that rides like nothing else on the road. While the original Podium used a more traditional double-diamond frame with shaped tubes, the new Podium adapts many of the latest advances in aerodynamics. With blunted kamm tail-shaped tubes that slice through the wind while preserving rigidity, improved integration between the frame and fork to smooth airflow for improved aerodynamics, everything about the podium is made to go fast. The Podium still uses a traditional round 27.2mm seatpost, but eliminates the traditional collar in favor of a compression plug. A full Shimano Ultegrea 6800 mechanical group delivers the best mechanical shifting performance available. The new 4-arm crank gives you the ability to run almost any sized chainrings you want. HED Ardennes Plus clincher wheels have a nice and wide 25mm rim profile, and lightweight yet bombproof durability. Finishing kit is also supplied by HED, and the carbon fiber seatpost, and alloy stem and handlebars, are matched with a Prologo Zero-II saddle with tirox alloy rails keeps you comfortable while maintaining a low gram count.
