Specialized has redesigned the complete frame, the new Diverge is more capable than ever. And with the constant goal to best meet your needs. The new frame will comfortably fit up to 700x42mm tires with plenty of room for mud, too. Along with tire clearance, weight was a large factor in the development and taking some design cues from the development of the Roubaix, we developed an E5 Premium Aluminium frame that’s plenty light, certainly stiff for hard efforts, and undeniable durable.
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-centimetre lower than the previous Diverge, a slacked-out head tube angle, short chainstays, and a short wheelbase. Specialized implemented a new version of our Future Shock into the Diverge design. It not only soaks up bumps with ease but 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.
The new Diverge has three water bottle mounts, and mounts for racks and fenders, so while it’s one of the most fun bikes, it’s equally adept at bike packing, commuting, or even a spin to your local cafe.
