Details of the Specialized Diverge Comp E5
Future Shock 1.5 is the ideal technology for the gravel rider. With 20mm of axial compliance, Future Shock 1.5 is progressive and tuned specifically for gravel riding. This allows you to maintain confidence and control, save power and protect your brakes on rough gravel roads while taking the strain off your hands, arms and neck.
The premium E5 aluminum frame provide a stiff, lightweight and durable platform. Combined with the carbon fork, this results in a lightweight, agile and versatile bike that feels comfortable on any surface.
Specialized has thrown the "status quo" of gravel geometries out the window. The Diverge has one of the most progressive geometries Specialized has ever designed for a bike with a drop bar. This allows it to present you with a frame with very balanced riding characteristics. Specialized has lengthened the reach, flattened the steering angle and fitted a fork with a longer offset. This together results in a platform that provides confidence and riding stability on gravel and rough terrain. This coupled with shorter stems ensures that the handlebars do not move too far away and the steering remains dynamic. The depth of the bottom bracket is such that 650b wheels can be mounted, but the smoothness is maintained.
Specialized has given the Diverge a variety of mounting points, which are also found on the fork and top tube. So that no matter how long you'll be on the road, you can take your gear with you. Want to ride wider tires? We've taken that into account too, the Diverge has 47mm of tire clearance with 700C tires and 2.1" with 650b wheels.
