Product Details

Specialized Diverge E5 2020 -  Gravel Road Bike

While the real fun starts where the road ends, you still need a bike that'll get you there - the Specialized Diverge E5 shreds flowy singletrack, gravel, and traditional roads with equal authority. A more capable road bike won’t cut it, nor will a more road-worthy 'cross bike for that matter. No, you need a dedicated gravel bike like the Diverge.

The Specialized Diverge E5 has everything you need for pretty much any pedal-powered adventure—whether it's gravel racing, bikepacking, or weekend shredding. 

Key Features

  • Fast and stable Open Road Geometry and plenty of tire clearance
  • Premium E5 Aluminum frameset
  • FACT carbon fibre fork - keeps overall weight low and takes the sting out of road imperfections with ease
  • Shimano Claris 8-speed groupset, hassle-free mechanical disc brakes
  • Power Sport Saddle
  • Durable Axis Sport Disc wheelset
  • Fast-rolling, 35mm Roadsport tires with built-in flat protection

You can think of the Diverge's geometry as a road version of a modern trail bike. It provides playful handling and predictable steering for endless dirt skids and mid-corner drifts, but keeps stiffness up to snuff for your inner-racer.

Along with a bottom bracket that's over a half-centimeter lower than the previous Diverge, they also slacked-out the head tube angle, shortened the chainstays, and made a shorter wheelbase. The result? A bike that performs equally well over both the dirt and road.
