Whether your goal is to escape on gravel back roads, far from cars and crowds, toe the start line at your first gravel race, or simply get the most versatile bike on the road or dirt, no bike is better than the new Diverge.

Specialized believes the Diverge Elite E5 is quite simply the fastest, most capable - and just maybe the most fun - alloy bike they've ever made, delivering a ride that's quick and lively, but stable and confidence-inspiring when the terrain gets rough. With all-new gravel geometry and category-leading tyre clearance, the new Diverge represents everything they've learned over more than 40 years of riding road, gravel and dirt. The Diverge writes an entirely new chapter in the gravel bike category, so you can dream up entirely new rides. It's the ultimate getaway vehicle.

The Diverge Elite E5 utilises Specialized's premium E5 alloy frame and a full carbon FACT fork for a fast, confident and comfortable ride on road, in the dirt, and over thick gravel. Shimano's gravel inspired GRX 400 group shifts 2x10 gears smoothly on any terrain and Axis Elite alloy wheels with Road Sport 35mm tyres provide an efficient ride on pavement with the versatility for hard-pack dirt riding.

Diverge Elite E5 Highlights

  • The Premium E5 Aluminium frame provides a stiff, light, and durable platform. When mated to Specialized's full carbon FACT fork, the Diverge Elite E5 becomes a light, lively and versatile bike ready to attack any surface.
  • Specialized have tossed gravel geometry ‘status-quo’ out the window. The new Diverge has the most progressive geometry they've ever created for a drop-bar bike, giving riders a capable and stable bike in the dirt, that still feels responsive and nimble on the road. They've increased the frame’s reach, introduced a slacker head tube and a longer offset fork. All this creates incredible confidence with a planted feeling in the dirt, while spec’ing shorter stems keeps the overall cockpit length the same and the steering lively. Specialized has kept the bike’s BB low to increase stability, but high enough to utilise with 650b wheels if that’s your jam.
  • Specialized has 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 tyre clearance, so Specialized has given the new Diverge 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 machined alloy beam behind the chainrings they've created clearance without using a fragile dropped chainstay design or increasing chainstay length.
