Whether your goal is to escape on gravel back roads, far from cars and crowds, or drop the hammer at the front of your favorite gravel race, no bike does it better than the new Diverge. It’s quite simply the fastest, most capable - and just maybe the most fun - bike we’ve ever made, delivering a ride that’s quick and lively under power, but stable and confidence inspiring when the terrain gets rough. From Future Shock 2.0 and all-new gravel geometry, to internal storage 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.

With a FACT 9r carbon frame and Future Shock 2.0 the Diverge Expert will have you riding faster and more confidently over more terrain than you ever imagined possible. SRAM's wireless Rival eTap AXS 12-speed groupset delivers quick, crisp shifting and Roval Terra Carbon wheels mated to Pathfinder Pro 42mm tires ensure performance across smooth pavement, dirt roads and gravel tracks. A Roval Terra seat post post keeps the Diverge Expert perfectly balanced for the ultimate ride.

Love it

Have been on a Roubaix since 2010 with the latest a 2022 which I love. Have a set of gravel wheels for it but the Roubaix maxed out at 35mm tires. So to get into more gravel got the 2023 Diverge in the copper/orange flat paint. Love riding it! It’s so smooth, quiet, responsive, and the headset shock is awesome. Depending on the lighting the bike goes from blac to brown to copper to orange tint - beautiful! Highly Recommend!

you are correct to be concerned about the future shock system

The head set for this bike is a nightmare. For some reason the lower bearings go bad rapidly. Upon replacing the lower bearing for the 4th time in 18 months (they go bad in a month but I ride it until I can't turn the bars anymore). I am dealing with a broken compression washer and broken bolts in the compression ring. The dealer I bought the bike from seems to hate customers so they have been no help. Looks like replacing the complete headset is going to cost $120. The bearing replacements have cost $35 each time although I would pay more if there was a better bearing option. I have owned a lot of bikes and a lot of head sets and none has been so costly and time consuming to maintain the head set. Never mind the complication of working on this headset. Otherwise the bike is great (sram brakes aside). I went with this over the Crux for swat storage and that was a mistake. The future shock is getting rough and noisy now too.

Absorbing alpine tracks and beyond

Recently switched from road cycling (S-Works Tarmac SL6) to the use of a more versatile Diverge living in Val de Bagnes (Switzerland) in perspective of physiologic aging. The adaptation was seamless, climbing as before, but now accessing the dirt roads that are usually occurring before reaching the top of climbs. Very stable, comfortable and agile.

Brilliant off-roader

As a seasoned "roadie" this bike has been my introduction to "gravel" riding (or byways, tracks and bridleways as it really is in the UK). I am not disappointed - it is a brilliant bike. Superbly balanced and feels fast and responsive off-road, on heavy mud or smooth gravel track, whether climbing or descending. Love the SWAT compartment. Futureshock does make a difference - after 2-3 hours off road I just don't feel shaken up. With some heavier lugged tyres it is incredible and you get the most out of the lovely Roval wheels. The handling at the front end feels a bit "wavy" on tarmac, but off-road it really pays off - you feel you can push it and the bike will handle it. Be warned, though, that the kit on the bike is not really SRAM Rival. Only the shifters and brake calipers are Rival. The drivetrain is all from SRAM's Eagle family of mountain bike kit - it is good but it means you will be limited to a small range of mtb cassettes.

The suspension in the headset

The suspension in the headset is a game changer for gravel. I have ridden a number of gravel bikes and this one just smooth everything out. Just enough flex in the set post to take edge off but not be annoying. Look forward to riding it every chance I get.

This bike feels tight and responsive. The wheels provide a nimble feel on and off the road. It just makes me want to ride faster, further and take on alternative routes if I fancy it!

Overall Very Satisfied

Very comfortable and stable ride, built for miles. Heavy-ish, but once rolling, efficiently fast. I do wish some of the components were a little higher-end, some parts with surface rust, and, to be honest would go high-end mechanical over electronic shifting for main reason being the weak chain tension, for which the derailleur has no adjustment.

Would Recommend?
Yes!
