SPECIALIZED DIVERGE EXPERT E5 EVO DISC GRAVEL BIKE 2021

Combining a unique geometry and flat bars, the Specialized Diverge Comp E5 EVO Disc Gravel Bike provides extra comfort, alongside excellent control for confidence when you hit tricky terrain. It pushes the boundaries of gravel riding even further than the drop bar models, for faster, more rowdy riding. It's constructed from E5 alloy that's paired to a full FACT carbon fork, keeping weight down, and incorporates Future Shock 1.5, progressive tuned damping technology to keep you off the brakes, flowing faster over rough terrain, while saving your hands, arms and neck from feeling battered at the end of a hard ride.

Shimano XT and Praxis Works take care of shifting duties, and the bike uses a low maintenance 1x configuration with 12 wide-ranging gears, helping you tackle any terrain. Hydraulic discs mean stopping power is reliable and consistent no matter what the weather is doing, and the bike rolls on DT Swiss wheels, capable of handling the most aggressive riding and fitted with fat 42mm Rhombus Pro tyres. The welcome addition of a dropper seatpost helps instil confidence on steeper or more technical sections.

HIGHLIGHTS

Premium E5 Aluminium frame provides a stiff, light, and durable platform. When married to the full carbon FACT fork, the Diverge EVO becomes a light, lively and versatile bike ready to tackle the most technical gravel and dirt as aggressively as you could wish

Speed, control and confidence - Future Shock 1.5 is the ideal technology for the gravel rider. With 20mm of axial compliance, Future Shock 1.5 is progressively tuned to keep 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

With the Diverge EVO, we took our new progressive gravel geometry to new levels. We’ve lengthened the frame 30mm over a drop bar Diverge (size medium), lowered the bottom bracket and slackened the head tube. This gives the Diverge EVO more confidence over technical terrain while keeping the cockpit comfortable with flat bars. It also allows for a short stem to make all that stability feel nimble and quick at the bars

A whopping 47mm of tyre clearance with a 700c wheel and 2.1” with a 650b wheel. Thanks to a drive-side chainstay utilising a solid beam of carbon behind the chainrings clearance are created without using a fragile dropped chainstay design or increasing chainstay length

Shimano GRX RX400 components are slick and smooth, bringing reliable shifting and powerful hydraulic braking
