Diamondback Heist 2.0 receives top review by MBUK

Diamondback’s Heist 2.0 is enjoying success again after receiving an exceptional review by Mountain Bike UK (MBUK).

Following an intense test whereby the publication explored the £570 to £700 price bracket, Diamondback’s Heist 2.0 received an impressive 4/5 star rating.  

Commending the bike for its design and kit, Mountain Bike UK stated the Heist is an “impressively equipped all-action trail hero at a bargain price”.

The recent review goes on to praise the model for its ability to deliver not only exceptional value for money, but also a healthy dose of enjoyment, stating the Heist “lets you push harder and grin wider, knowing you can correct and save an overoptimistic dare before it ends in disaster”.

Going further into detail, the review explores the physical aspects of the Heist that makes it so appealing: “The Heist us also slightly lighter that other bikes at 13.7kg (30.34lbs)”. They go on to say “while the frame is decent it’s the kit selection that puts the Heist’s ride on a different level. The 740mm bar and mid-length stem create a proper power-steering trail setup, and the Race Face logos are something to show off to show your friends.

Even with a quick-release rather than 15mm axle, the RockShox Recon fork is a great find at this price- and the Performance compound Schwalbe Nobby Nic tyres underline control. The Shimano XT/SLX/Deore gears are also great for the money, while the own-brand through-axle double crankset and saddle are good quality kit too.”




Dominating a section of the adventure market under this price bracket, the Heist is a competitive offering that delivers a reassuringly expensive feel throughout.

Mountain Bike UK go on to add: “It’s not just value for money that the kit boosts either – it also makes the Heist feel like a much more expensive bike out on the trails. The 740mm bar feels huge next to the skinny, old-school cross-country bars you find on many other rides for this sort of money”.

Daimondback’s Heist 2.0 is available at an exceptional price of £650, but don’t wait around to buy, its little brother the Sync, has already sold out, so contact your local stockist today and try one for yourself- at this price, you’d be mad not to.
