Published April 8, 2021

KENT, Wash. (BRAIN) — Diamondback Bicycles, a brand owned by Alta Cycling, has unveiled its 2021 spring e-bike collection, which includes four new models back by a new "Get Amped" marketing campaign. The bikes will be available online at and in Diamondback retailers nationwide. Dealers can participate in Diamondback's omni-channel distribution program.

The four models are the first e-bikes for the Diamondback line, although Alta has long experience with e-bike with its iZip, Raleigh and Haibike brands.

"Our four new e-bikes will hit a sweet spot in the Diamondback lineup, with a solid combination of high-performing components, a streamlined design and unmatched versatility. With options for a wide variety of users, in terms of both end-use and price point, we're really pleased that these bikes will be at the forefront of Diamondback's foray into the e-bike market."
