THE ALL-NEW SPECIALIZED DIVERGE
Shockingly Fast. Seriously Fun.
While the fun might start where the road ends, you still need a bike that’ll get you there—one bike that shreds gravel and dirt and crushes through road miles with equal expertise.
The Diverge is now more capable than ever, with clearance for up to either 700x42mm or 650bx47mm tires, frame weights that can dip below 900 grams (see S-Works), and a Future Shock that’s geared specifically to riding smoothly over harsh terrain. It’s also moved away from a traditional ‘cross geometry, instead opting for our new Open Road Geometry.
You can think of it as a road version of modern trail bike geometry. It provides playful handling and predictable steering for endless dirt skids and mid-corner drifts. The geometry features a bottom bracket that’s over a half-centimeter lower than the previous Diverge, too. Specialized also slacked-out the head tube angle, shortened the chainstays, and made a shorter wheelbase. So now, these changes make a bike that performs equally well over both the dirt and road.
It not only soaks up bumps with ease, but it also adds the benefit of extremely predictable handling. That’s because the wheelbase isn’t lengthening when you hit a bump, so the front end of the Diverge keeps the same effective head tube angle. In other words, when you dive hard into a turn, you won’t be surprised by under steer or sloppy handling. And unlike the Future Shock found on the Roubaix, this version features a Progressive Spring that makes it more suitable for off-road applications, where stiffer suspension is often needed to soak-up larger bumps and obstacles.
Future Shock w/ Progressive Spring
Specially tuned with a stiffer spring rate for rough roads, this Future Shock gives you the feeling of floating over harsh terrain and of being glued to the tarmac on windy descents.
Open Road Geometry crushes both dirt and road with confidence, featuring a lower BB, slacker head tube, and shorter chainstays.
Ready for Anything
