The latest generation Diverge brings Specialized's gravel/adventure machine bang up to date, with geometry that's optimised for mixed surface versatility (including a less extreme bottom bracket height - low, but not excessively so).
This 1x build takes advantage of SRAM's RED/Eagle compatibility to give a smooth shifting groupset with plenty of range for any terrain. The ENVE carbon cockpit puts the emphasis on speed, with a comfortably efficient but purposeful position.
The Diverge has masses of tyre clearance, whether running 700c or 650b wheels (up to 47mm and 2.1in respectively). As photographed here this build is rinning DT Swiss 650b wheels, perfect for off-road fun, but there are also a set of ENVE 3.4 AR in 700c waiting to be swapped out for more road-focused days.
FutureShock 2.0 suspension features 20mm of damped and adjustable travel neatly integrated into the front end, for valuable extra comfort without excess bulk or weight. Also, carried over from the Stumpjumper, there's SWAT storage integrated into the frame. This allows you to stow those ride essentials; tools, CO2, even a light rain jacket, within the frame itself, easily accessed via a door under the downtube bottle cage mounts.
The Chameleon paint scheme shimmers out of the shadows, catching the light and blending perfectly with that large but light 12-speed Eagle 'Rainbow' 10-50t cassette.
We create each unique S-Works custom build to match your requirements, and of course ensure that it is perfectly fitted. Get in touch for more info.
