WANT MORE

DREAM BIG, NO LIMITS. 

 
Far from the same old rides and the same busy roads, riders are challenging limits like never before. Specialized challenged themselves to create a bike that does more than live up to the demands of today’s gravel rider. Diverge wants more—more speed, more distance, more challenge

Go All Over

FUTURE SHOCK 2.0

Specialized made Future Shock for cobbles, but turns out it’s the ultimate technology for riding rough roads, thick gravel, and chunky dirt. Future Shock 2.0’s adjustable, hydraulically damped travel keeps you in control and on target, all while protecting your hands, arms, and shoulders from the battering.

SWAT Storage

EVERYTHING YOU NEED, RIGHT WHERE YOU NEED IT​

 
The Diverge’s internal SWAT™ compartment takes gear out of your pockets and puts it low in the frame, improving handling and keeping you more comfortable. Go ahead and rip past that first aid station, or take extra gear to escape farther into the unknown. SWAT™ pods keep it all dry and organized.

FATTER IS FUNNER

Nothing unlocks potential like tire clearance. Very generous—47mm on a 700c wheel and 2.1” on 650B. Crazy! but wait until you rip a descent with that much rubber. Hallelujah!

What do we think? 

 
"We love the Diverge because of its amazing versatility. Mudguard it up for a winter road miles. Fit a 2.1" tyre and ride any of our local trails. Load it up with bike-packing bags and go for the long haul. We've done it all on a Diverge and it's never missed a beat"
- Ellie M

Available to pre-order

Imagine your biggest ride, dream of gravel racing glory, Diverge Pro’s your partner in crime. It all starts with a FACT 9r carbon frame and Future Shock 2.0 for a light and lively ride that’s incredibly stable and confidence-inspiring. A huge range of gears, flawless shifts in any terrain, and a simple, wireless 1x set-up is provided by SRAM’s Force AXS eTap group and SRAM’s Orbit fluid clutch. Roval’s ultralight and super tough Terra CL wheels with Kanza-winning Pathfinder Pro 38mm tires deliver the most versatile and capable combination for mixed surface and challenging terrain.

 

  • With a FACT 9r carbon frame, the Diverge Expert frame is incredibly capable and race bike light. Pin it for your local dirt climb KOM, or grind up a giant back country peak, the light and lively Diverge will get you there faster.

  • Speed, control and confidence - Future Shock 2.0 is the ultimate technology for the gravel rider. With 20mm of axial compliance and a hydraulic damper, Future Shock 2.0 suspends the rider not the bike. This keeps you confident and in control, able to keep the power down and stay off the brakes over rough dirt roads and in thick loose gravel, all while keeping your hands, arms and neck fresh. Since Future Shock 2.0’s damper is adjustable, you’ll be ready for the rough stuff and efficient on smooth pavement.

  • We’ve given 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.

  • Nothing unlocks a bike’s capability like tire clearance, so we gave the new Diverge a whopping 47mm of tire clearance with a 700c wheel and 2.1” with a 650b wheel. Thanks to a drive side chain stay utilizing a solid beam of carbon behind the chain rings we’ve created clearance without using a fragile dropped chain stay design or increasing chain stay length.

  • The more capable your bike, the bigger your rides get, so Diverge borrows SWAT internal storage from the legendary Stumpy. The SWAT door lets you utilize space in the down tube to store tools, a flat kit, nutrition and even our SWAT Jacket. It keeps weight off your body, low in the bike for better handling, and makes you more self-sufficient, so get out there. SWAT’s got your back.
