Product Details

Specialized Diverge E5 Comp 2018 Gravel Road Bike

This is the 2018 Specialized Diverge go-anywhere road bike further upgraded with Future Shock front suspension, Shimano 105 gearing and Tektro Spyre disc brakes.

Upgrades over Specialized Diverge E5

  • The Diverge features a new, more off road capable version of the Specialized Future Shock which made its debut on the 2017 Bike of the Year Specialized Roubaix
  • Here, a 20mm-travel lightweight suspension cartridge, enclosed above the head tube and below the stem, effectively isolates you, the rider, from shock when you ride over rough roads, gravel and tracks
  • Smoother shifting Shimano 105 STI 2x11 shifters are the world's best sellers for good reason
  • TRP (Tektro Racing Products) Spyre disc brakes deliver confidence-inspiring all-weather performance
  • Unlike the majority of mechanical disc brakes, which only have one moving piston, TRP Spyre disc brakes have two
  • Both pistons move equally against the rotor. The result: more consistent and even braking performance, less likelihood of brake rub and less maintenance required

Same as Specialized Diverge E5

Specialized's go-anywhere road bike upgraded for 2018 with an E5 alloy frame, more tyre clearance, full mudguard compatibility, 12mm thru axles and a threaded BB.

  • E5 is a unique-to-Specialized alloy of aluminium, silicon, copper, manganese, magnesium and zinc. E5 is more formable than conventional 6061 aluminium. This enables Specialized to specify every inch of tube so the frame is as light as possible where it can be and strong as possible where needs be. It truly is an elite alloy, Tour tested in France.
  • Just as important, Specialized has introduced a new frame design for 2018 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 frame 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-shoot steering
  • 12mm through axles beef up the crucial wheel to frame / fork interface, whilst being as convenient and easy to use as a traditional QR quick release
  • Tektro cable operated disc brakes are proven, low-maintenance performers
  • The 2018 Diverge frame features new brake caliper flat mounts for a neater look, more in keeping with a road bike's aesthetics
  • Specialized Espoir Sport 700x30 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 clearance for full mudguards
  • The Specialized Body Geometry Toupé Sport is one of our best proven saddles
