2013 Diamondback Steilacoom RCX Pro Disc

Bike Dealer Camp Cross Feature Articles Video

Based out of the pacific northwest, it was not hard for Diamondback engineers to design a cross bike to be at home in some of the wettest, muddiest, gnarliest terrains in the world. The Diamondback Steilacoom RCX Pro Disc is a new offering for 2013. It’s one of two new cross bikes that will be offered along with the existing RCX and CCX, the other being a non-disc version of the RCX Pro. The RCX Pro Disc and RCX Pro V share the same fully butted 7005 alloy frame, complete with BB30 bottom bracket and formed top tube featuring a flat bottom for easy portage over obstacles and hurdles.

The RCX Pro Disc is the first bike we’ve seen to incorporate Easton’s new EC-90XD carbon fork. A massive fork that’s said to be exceptionally strong and stiff – it features a 1.5″ carbon steerer and is setup for 160mm Avid disc brakes on the RCX Pro Disc. The RCX Pro V will come with a Diambondback DBCX carbon fork, setup for V-braks or cantis.

Both bikes are outfitted with SRAM builds, FSA components, and Easton wheels to hit their respective price points. Both are availble in 50cm, 53cm, 56cm, and 59cm and are available now.
