The Mason FS Pro is a versatile all-mountain 29er that brings the same playful ride quality of its predecessor, the Mason hardtail, to the long travel, full-suspension category. With 140 millimeters of travel front and rear, and a slack 66.5-degree head angle, the Mason FS Pro is game for charging the downhill, but also pedals andclimbs efficiently on the trail. Diamondback supercharged its Knucklebox suspension by incorporating the linkage directly into the downtube and beefing up the rear triangle, along with a 142x12-millimeter through-axle, resulting in a more efficient and laterally stiffer design. Additional features include ISCG 05 mount tabs.

Diamondback then applies the remaining carbon tubes utilizing carbon welding or Tube to Tube construction. This provides additional compliance to the ride. By coupling these two unique methods of frame making we create an exceptionally smooth confidence inspiring and efficient ride. The frame also features internal cable routing, carbon dropouts, a tapered headtube and, of course, all Century 4 Carbon frames are Di2 compatible. MSRP $2,299
