The Diamondback Hanjo is a versatile road bike which can be used for off-road biking, coasting along the town streets or hardcore racing. The prominent feature of this bike is Diamondback’s EPG (Enhanced Performance Geometry) which focuses on comfort of its riders.

The bike comes with a fully butted aluminium frameset which keeps the bike’s weight under control and makes the bike extremely easy to handle. The Shimano 10 speed shifters provide seamless and efficient shifting and offer a wide gear range to face any kind of surface. This bike offers to you a complete package of speed, reliability and control and the price tag associated with this bike makes it quite a bargain.
