Product Details

Specialized Diverge Comp 2018 Carbon Road Bike

A top spec including Shimano 105-quality hydraulic disc brakes and STI 2x11 gearing helps you make the most of this go-anywhere carbon road bike.

This is the top of the range Specialized Diverge this side of the £8.5K S-Works model.

  • With its full FACT carbon frame with Future Shock suspension, the Diverge Comp takes some of the best ideas that made the Specialized Roubaix the 2017 Bike of the Year
  • Then subtly tweaked the design to make the Diverge Comp even more capable over more challenging mixed terrain
  • Specialized's Future Shock suspension features a 20mm-travel lightweight suspension cartridge, enclosed above the head tube and below the stem
  • Future Shock effectively isolates you, the rider, from shock when you ride over rough roads, gravel and tracks
  • Specialized introduced a new Diverge frame design for 2018, which they describe as Open Road Geometry
  • With its 72 degree head tube and 73.5 degree seat tube angles (size 54cm), its low bottom bracket, its short chainstays, its skinny, shock-absorbing drop seatstays and its short wheelbase, every 2018 Diverge combines the nippy, responsive steering of an authentic road bike with the confidence-inspiring sure-footed comfort of the best touring bikes
  • The full carbon fork perfectly matches the frame by offering that perfect blend of light weight, shock absorption and predictable point-and-shot steering
  • 12mm through-axles beef up the crucial wheel to frame / fork interface, whilst being as convenient and easy to use as traditional QR quick releases
  • Shimano 105 STI 2x11 shifters are the world's best sellers for good reason
  • The matching Shimano hydraulic disc brakes are a revelation - more on this
  • The 2018 Diverge frame features new brake caliper flat mounts for a neater look, more in keeping with a road bike's aesthetics
  • Extra frame clearance (compared with the Diverge E5 models) enables Specialized to upgrade their carbon Diverge bikes with higher volume Specialized Trigger Pro 700x38 folding tyres for an even more comfortable, stable ride over dodgy road and trail surfaces
  • These tyres offer further proof that fatter tyres on road bikes don't just improve comfort, they can also be faster. More on this.
  • This year's Diverge is built with mounts and clearance for full mudguards
