The 2022 Specialized Diverge Pro Carbon Gravel Bike in Gloss Sand is the Top bike in the Diverge Carbon line-up and comes with many of the same features as the more expensive S-Works models. It has a light carbon frame, an upgraded Future Shock, SRAM eTap gearing and extra touches including internal storage.
The Diverge Pro comes with a FACT 9r carbon fibre frame which is incredible capable and race bike light. The new Diverge has the most progressive geometry Specialized have 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. Specialized have kept the bike’s BB low to increase stability, but high enough to utilize with 650b wheels if you want to swap it up. The Diverge comes 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.
The Diverge Comp comes with a Future Shock 2.0 fork which gives 20mm of axial compliance which can be adjusted as you ride. This keeps 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.
The new Diverge comes with a whopping 47mm of tyre clearance with a 700c wheel and 2.1” with a 650b wheel. The Diverge Pro Carbon comes with a wireless 1x SRAM Force AXS eTap groupset and SRAM’s Orbit fluid clutch. Roval’s ultralight and super tough Terra CL wheels with Kanza winning Pathfinder Pro 38mm tyres deliver the most versatile and capable combination for mixed surface and challenging terrain. A Roval Terra carbon seat post ensures the Diverge Pro is perfectly balanced for the ultimate ride.

Riders who want a light and race capable gravel bike. With the latest wireless gearing and super-fast wheels you’ll be floating over the gravel.
Gravel bikes have exploded in popularity over the last few years. There are now dozens of gravel bike events around the UK and a growing number of long distance cycling routes designed with gravel bikes in mind. In this gravel bike buying guide we’ll take you through the main things to consider when picking a gravel bike.
The main appeal of gravel bikes is versatility,. You can use them on normal roads but they’ll also work great on forest roads, old railway lines and farm tracks. So you can go for a ride off-road, avoiding cars and traffic, but link it with sections of tarmac as well. Of course you can do this on a mountain bike but a gravel bike will generally be faster and lighter. This also means you can cover some big distances when touring. A lot of gravel bike riders are road cyclists who want to get away from traffic.
As gravel bikes often get used for touring and bikepacking most will come with mounting points for bags. This luggage capacity combined with speed, and ability to handle mixed surfaces, means that gravel bikes are also extremely popular for commuting on.
Gravel bikes are very popular for commuting. We sell lots of them on the cycle to work scheme. One of our biggest stores for gravel bike sales is our Greenwich shop in London. They're mainly selling them for commuting around central London on. We’re going to run you through the pros and cons of commuting on a gravel bike and answer the question ‘are gravel bikes good for commuting?’
Gravel bikes are fast, nearly as quick as a standard road bike. They are certainly quicker on the road than most mountain bikes and many hybrids. That means you can get to work, and home, in the shortest time possible. But what makes gravel bikes so good for commuting is that they are extremely versatile. They can be ridden on tarmac, cycle paths, old railway lines, canal towpaths, and even off-road trails. So, it’s easy to mix it up on your commute and avoid traffic.
Another big advantage of commuting on a gravel bike is that they're generally more comfortable than road bikes. This is because they have wider tyres and longer wheelbases, which results in a smoother and more stable ride. So you don’t get bounced around as much on rough roads. Most gravel bikes have a fairly upright riding position which makes it easier to see what’s going on in traffic. The combination of stable handling and the comfortable riding position is a massive confidence boost for the rider, especially on wet roads.
Specialized is one of the best-known quality bike brands in the world. Started by a group of riders in 1974. A fact which has guided their decision making ever since.
" Made for riders, by riders."
They strove to make the best quality tires when quality tyres weren't around. When people wanted to ride cruisers in the dirt, they made the first production mountain bike. When roadies wanted to go faster, Specialized doubled down on carbon and built their own wind tunnel.
Bikes like the Allez, Rockhopper and Stumpjumper have developed followings and reputations of their own. Specialized has a reputation for making high-end, high-quality bikes. Specialized bikes always look great with high-quality paint and sensible sizing hel0s you get the right bike each time. If you buy a Specialized bike you can be guaranteed it will do what it is supposed to and will last.
