The Details

Whether you want to escape the tarmac on gravel back roads, get into gravel racing or simply get from A to B without being limited on the terrain you take, the Diverge Elite E5 is the bike for you.


Built onto Specialized's Premium E5 aluminium frame and FACT full carbon fork, the Diverge provides a quick, comfortable and confidence-inspiring ride on any terrain from tarmac to thick gravel to dusty dirt roads.

With improved geometry including an increased frame reach, slacker head tube and longer offset fork, you're sure to feel planted and stable on the bike and ready to take on long and rough rides.

The Elite E5 features Shimano' gravel-specific groupset GRX 400 2 x 10-speed. Shimano GRX is more than capable of handling anything you can throw at it on your gravel rides. While the Axis Elite alloy wheels with Pathfinder Sport 700x38mm tyres (with clearance for up to 47mm) provide an efficient ride on pavement as well as the versatility to tackle some dirt riding too.

The Diverge has been given plenty of mounting points including on the fork and top tube, so you can take with you whatever you need, no matter how far you plan to go. The Diverge is your ticket to riding more, exploring more and having a lot more fun when you're out.
