It’s quite simply the fastest, most capable – and just maybe the most fun – alloy bike we’ve ever made, delivering a ride that’s quick and lively, but stable and confidence inspiring when the terrain gets rough. With all-new gravel geometry and category leading tire clearance, the new Diverge represents everything we’ve learned over more than 40 years of riding road, gravel and dirt. The Diverge writes an entirely new chapter in the gravel bike category, so you can dream up entirely new rides. It’s the ultimate getaway vehicle.
The Diverge Elite E5 utilizes an E5 alloy frame and a full carbon FACT fork for a fast, confident and comfortable ride on road, in the dirt, and over thick gravel. Shimano’s gravel inspired GRX 400 group shifts 2×10 gears smoothly on any terrain and Axis Elite alloy wheels with Road Sport 35mm tires provide an efficient ride on pavement with the versatility for hard pack dirt riding.
- Nothing unlocks capability like tire clearance, so the new Diverge has 47mm of tire clearance with a 700c wheel and 2.1” with a 650b wheel.
- The new Diverge has the most progressive geometry ever created for a drop bar bike, giving riders a capable and stable bike in the dirt. Specialized increased the frame’s reach, introduced a slacker head tube and a longer offset fork. The bike’s BB is low to increase stability, but high enough to utilize with 650b wheels if that’s your jam.
- Specialized gave the Diverge plenty of rack mounts, including fork and top tube mounts, to ensure you can take what you need, no matter how far you plan to go, or how long you plan to stay out.
