The Arden 3 is the perfect bike for women who relish spending long days in the saddle. That means the featherweight frame is not only engineered to be precise and responsive (check out the front and rear thru-axles); but also designed to be comfortable no matter how many miles you are putting to bed.
The Arden 3 shares the same women’s-specific touch points and Enhanced Performance Geometry and as Diamondback's other Arden models. That geometry is key; it creates a riding position that’s sporty and fast, yet well shy of that “classic” road biking aero tuck. Riding a bike should be exercise, not an exercise in masochism.
The Arden 3 is a true performer, and the parts that hang from it bear tribute to that fact. Highlights here include a vibration-damping carbon fiber fork, precise Shimano 105 2x11 drivetrain, and powerful Tektro Spyre disc brakes.
