We deliver! Just say when and how.

Whether your goal is to escape on gravel back roads, far from cars and crowds, toe the start line at your first gravel race, or simply get the most versatile bike on the road or dirt, no bike is better than the new Diverge. 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. From Future Shock 1.5 and all-new gravel geometry, to 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.

Starting with premium E5 alloy frame and a full carbon FACT fork, we gave the Diverge Comp E5 our Future Shock 1.5 for a fast, confident and comfortable ride on road, in the dirt, and over thick gravel. SRAM’s gravel-inspired Apex 1 group shifts 1x11 gears smoothly on any terrain and Axis Elite alloy wheels with Pathfinder Sport 38mm tires add even more capability and versatility.

I've been riding the Allez Elite for a few years and wanted to add a gravel bike to expand my collection :) The Diverge Comp E5 rides so smoothly! I live in Boston so roads are (at best) full of potholes, gravel, cracks, and debris that my little Allez had a hard time navigating. The Diverge handles so well and with the Future Shock I hardly feel the bumps and shocks and it feels very secure on the road. I'm so excited to keep riding it through the colder months! I also have some bike trips planned and will be taking the Diverge since I know it can handle whatever the road throws at it.

Would Recommend?



Most comfortable and overall capable bike I have owned

The title almost says it all. As I mostly use it on the road I swapped the supplied 38mm tyres for 30mm, but in hindsight, I probably shouldn't have done that as it does mean that on wet mud I have very little traction. Though that could also be because the tyres have pretty much zero tread ;). Although Specialized make a point of the shorter stem being a pro, I swapped mine from the factory 80mm to 100mm after a bike fit and immediately felt much more comfortable. Just a warning that no matter how good a bike is, it cannot fit all riders. I'm thinking of changing the cranks from the fitted 172.5 to 165, and that might lead me to want a smaller chainring to maintain leverage for climbs.
