2021 Specialized Diverge E5 Comp in Tarmac

Season : 2021

Brand : Specialized

Code : 175289

The Diverge Comp premium E5 alloy frame provides a stiff, light, and durable platform coupled with a full carbon FACT fork, the Diverge Comp E5 becomes a light, agile and versatile bike ready to attack any surface from road to thick gravel. Shimano's gravel inspired GRX 600 group shifts 1x11 gears smoothly on any terrain and Axis Elite alloy wheels with Pathfinder Sport 38mm tires add even more capability and versatility.


Escape the rat race and spend some quality time kicking up dust. The Diverge represents 40 years of Specialized experience with both road, and gravel bikes the result the fastest, most capable and fun Gravel bike Specialized have ever made. The 40 years experience can be seen in elements such as all-new gravel geometry, internal storage and category-leading tyre clearance. The focus has been giving you a quick but confidence-inspiring Gravel bike able to tackle challenging terrain. So go ahead and start dreaming up your biggest ride, your ultimate getaway or racing glory the Diverge will be your new best friend, your cycling partner in crime.


When it comes to Geometry, the Diverge breaks the rules celebrating some of the most progressive geometry Specialized have created for a drop-bar bike to create a capable and stable bike in the dirt, that still feels responsive and agile on the road. The frame's reach is increased, introduced a slacker head tube and a longer offset fork. All this creates incredible confidence with a planted feeling in the dirt; shorter stems keep the overall cockpit length the same and the steering lively. All this and the Bottom Bracket is low to increase stability, but high enough to accommodate 650b wheels that's your jam.


Tyre clearance dictates a lot, so the Diverge has a massive 47mm of tire clearance with a 700c wheel and 2.1" with a 650b wheel. Thanks to a drive-side chainstay utilizing a solid beam of carbon behind the chainrings Specialized created clearance without using a fragile dropped chainstay design or increasing chainstay length.


All of the above gives you a competent bike which means bigger rides. 

If big adventure is your thing the Diverge has got your back with 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


This bike perfect for adventures long and short, the Diverge is geared up for comfort, handling and speed perfect for getting away from it all.
