Although the real fun starts where the road ends, you need a bike that will get you there.
Sometimes, getting lost is the best way to find out exactly where you want to be. Enjoy the ride with a bike that shreds flowy singletrack, gravel, and traditional roads with equal authority.
A more capable road bike won’t cut it on the terrain you really want to ride, nor will a more road-worthy 'cross bike for that matter. Instead, you need a dedicated gravel bike like the Diverge. It's fun and always down for a good time, but with Specialized's fast and stable Open Road Geometry and plenty of tyre clearance, it redefines the possibilities for adventure on a drop-bar bike.
To ensure that your new Diverge E5 rides comfortably, shifts crisply, and brakes smoothly for years to come, it features a Shimano Claris 8-speed groupset, hassle-free mechanical disc brakes, a fan-favorite Power Sport Saddle, and a durable Axis Sport Disc wheelset that's been cased in fast-rolling, 35mm Roadsport tyres with built-in flat protection.
The Diverge has everything you need for pretty much any pedal-powered adventure, whether it's gravel racing, bikepacking, or weekend shredding. A Premium E5 Aluminium frameset features a comfortable and confident Open Road Geometry, making it the ultimate tool for your next ride. You can think of the Diverge's geometry as a road version of a modern trail bike. It provides playful handling and predictable steering for endless dirt skids and mid-corner drifts, but keeps stiffness for your inner-racer. Along with a bottom bracket that's over a half-centimetre lower than the previous Diverge, the head tube angle was also slacked-out, the chainstays were shortned, and the wheelbase was made shorter. The result is a bike that performs equally well over both the dirt and road. The full FACT carbon fibre fork keeps overall weight low and takes the sting out of road imperfections with ease.
