Specialized Diverge Expert E5 EVO 2022 Aluminium Gravel Bike

4.5 out of 5 Customer Rating

The Details

Gravel riding is evolving so if you're looking to take your gravel adventures to the next level, there's nothing faster or more fun than the new Specialized Diverge E5 Expert Evo.

Diverge EVO has been designed to be aggressive and push the boundaries of what a gravel bike is and what it can do. Flat handlebars and progressive geometry with increased reach, slackened head tube and lowered bottom bracket really help to separate the Diverge EVO from the raft of other gravel bikes. In fact, the Diverge EVO is 30mm longer than the drop-bar Diverge on a size medium. This increased reach means Diverge EVO can run a shorter stem making the bike more nimble at the bars. All of this makes the Diverge EVO at home on anything from technical single track to flowing road descents.

Built onto Specialized's Premium E5 aluminium frame, the Diverge Evo provide a stiff, lightweight and durable platform for your rowdiest rides. Not only is the FACT carbon fork great for providing nimble and lively handling, but it's also paired with Specialized Future Shock 1.5, the perfect technology for gravel riding. With 20mm of progressively tuned compliance just where you need it, with a hydraulic damper you'll always be comfortable and firmly in control letting you keep the power down and keep your upper body fresh. Future Shock allows you to take on the rough stuff whilst remaining as efficient as possible on smoother terrain.

The build of the Diverge EVO is MTB inspired, meaning on the Expert EVO you get top quality Sram GX Eagle 12-speed groupset, which will be unphased by anything you can throw at it. This is backed up by the reliable stopping power of the Sram Level TLM brakes. Then, if technical descents are your thing, the Diverge Expert Evo has you covered with its TranzX dropper post, letting you get your weight back over the bike for extra control and speed.
