The Details

The Diverge is lively when you're pushing the limits at top speed but still stable and confidence-inspiring. The Diverge incorporates all of Specialized's latest technology such as the Future Shock 2.0 and their specifically designed gravel geometry with class-leading tire clearance. The unique geometry includes an increased frame reach, slacker headtube and lower bottom bracket, meaning you're sure to feel planted and stable on the bike and ready to take on long and rough rides.

Built onto Specialized's FACT 9R carbon frame and Future Shock 2.0, the Diverge Expert provides a fast, lightweight, comfortable and confidence-inspiring ride on any terrain from tarmac to thick gravel to dusty dirt roads. The Future Shock provides a small amount of travel in the handlebars to keep your upper body fresh for those longer rougher rides.

SRAM's Rival 12-speed AXS wireless groupset provides a huge range of reliable gears for all terrains, while the Roval Terra Carbon wheels with Pathfinder Pro 700x42mm tyres provide an efficient ride on pavement as well as the versatility to mix it up off-road 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.

  • FACT 9r Lightweight Carbon Frame
  • Future Shock 2.0
  • Special Gravel Geometry
  • SRAM Rival eTap AXS 12-speed
  • Roval Terra Carbon Wheels
  • Extra Mounting Points
  • Up to 47mm Tire Clearance

Our Verdict

Specialized's do it all bike, the Diverge is excellent for tackling gravel back roads away from the cars. Simply put, it's fast, capable and fun.
