Product Details

Specialized Diverge A1 2017

The Shimano Sora 2x9-equipped Diverge matches close-to road bike speed potential with the comfort and versatility of a cross/gravel/adventure road bike.

  • You can be confident that its Specialized A1 Premium Aluminium alloy frame will be among the lightest, strongest and most accurately built frames around this price.
  • Endurance road geometry (72 degree head tube angle x 73.5 degree seat tube angle in 54cm) with taller head tube makes the Diverge more upright and comfortable for most riders, compared with, say, a full-on Specialized Tarmac-like road bike.
  • The short chainstays deliver road bike-like quick acceleration, snappy handling and fast-steering agility.
  • Specialized FACT (Functionally Advanced Composite Technology) fork with Zertz / carbon fork legs are a Paris-Roubaix-proven fast track to lightweight comfort.
  • Zertz are 'solid jelly' inserts that deliver remarkable shock absorbency without the weight penalty associated with conventional bicycle suspension.
  • The frame and fork are mudguard and rack compatible. If you need anything fitted, just ask. Our labour charge is zero if the accessories are ordered at the same time as the bike.
  • Tektro Mira disc brakes deliver confidence-inspiring all-weather performance..
  • Shimano Sora 2x9 STI gear shifting.
  • STI means Shimano Total Integration. The gear shifters are integrated with the brake levers so you can change gear any time without having to take your hands off the brake lever hoods.
  • This wide spread of gears (48/32 chainset x 11-32 cassette) makes the Specialized Diverge A1 suitable for the type of challenging varied terrain you would typically encounter at a sportive or similar long-distance ride.
  • Being a Specialized bike, the Diverge A1 comes with a Specialized Body Geometry Toupé Saddle - regularly rated as among the most comfortable available.
  • Specialized Espoir Sport 700x28 tyres are smooth rolling, comfortably cushioning, and boast effective BlackBelt puncture protection.
  • The Specialized shallow drop handlebars are more comfortable for most riders than traditional deeper drop bars.

'The Diverge Sport A1 is a more than a capable exploration machine at an incredible value. It features a responsive and reliable A1 Premium aluminium frame that with a unique bottom bracket height and front rake angle that increase handling confidence. Plus, it includes a carbon fork with fender mounts, a workhorse Shimano Sora groupset, and mechanical disc brakes, making a bike that's well suited to conquering any road—paved or otherwise.

  • A1 Premium aluminium pairs with a unique, adventure-bound geometry that sets the stage for rugged durability, performance over any terrain, and a level of comfort and handling that's tough to beat.
  • FACT carbon fork w/ proprietary Zertz inserts absorbs and damps road chatter & vibration without compromising on the rigidity needed for performing at speed and tracking dutifully on the descents.
  • This fork is also compatible with our Plug + Play fenders for protection against the elements.700x28mm Espoir Sport tyres are the perfect width for splitting your time between the road and dirt, providing excellent traction and suppleness. And to assist in minimizing flats, they also feature our double BlackBelt protection.'
