Read on for our Full Diamondback Laurito Review

This great entry level mountain bike is launched for the 2014 season, and updated for 2016.

Designed as a rugged and affordable bike for hitting the trails or just a capable city bike, able to deal with the challenging road conditions.

Fittings and Equipment, what does it mean to me?

Diamondback have not just adopted the plan of shrink it and paint it pink.  Many of the bikes features have been designed with women in mind.  Its part of the Devine Designs range of bikes produced as a tribute to female cyclists.


The bike is strong, with an all aluminium hard tail frame, constructed from good quality – light T-6061 aluminium, in two sizes from 15″ or 17″ frames.

For 2016 the frame has been improved and strengthened with new top and down tubes. This means you can choose a great strong bike in just the right size for your body. This will allow a great comfortable ride. This Diamondback Laurito is equipped with a Trail Cross Country 80mm travel suspension fork. This will help soak up the bumps on the trail, as you build confidence on your bike, then your speed will increase to. The fork will keep the ride smooth even if the trail gets a little rough.

Additional stopping power is provided by the great V-Brakes brakes. V-Brakes combine easy maintenance and will keep running through the toughest conditions.

Any negatives to this bike?

Overall this is a good package, however like many bikes it does have a slightly hard saddle. This is usually personal prefereance, I like a hard saddle and wear padded shorts, but you might want to try it out and if you need to swap it out or consider a gel cover then its an easy fix.

What are other reviews saying about the Laurito Hardtail?

“Awesome bike! Goes up hills with ease and shifts so smooth! No more falling behind my husband while he strolls around on his high end bike!”

“I love this bike! I bought the medium and it’s a good fit for me at ‘5.2”

“I love riding a bike again and this thing is top notch quality. The only thing I changed was the seat…”

Our Verdict on the Lautrio:

This bike would be an excellent choice for anyone looking for a good quality bike at a low entry price. You can be confident that this bike will see you round the trail and home again.
