Product Details

Specialized Women's Diverge E5 Comp 2019 Road Bike

This is the Women's Diverge go-anywhere road bike with Future Shock front suspension, Shimano 105 gearing and Tektro Spyre disc brakes.

The DNA of the Diverge E5 Comp

  • This Diverge features a 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 and gravelly tracks
  • Smother 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.
  • 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 and have continued this into 2019
  • The 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
  • 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 and 38mm tyres
  • The Specialized Body Geometry Myth Sport is one of our most popular women's saddles

Here's how Specialized describe the Specialized Diverge E5 Comp Women's

Narrowing down a bike that can do it all used to be tough going. Sure, some work well as a road bike and a 'cross bike, while others are good at commuting and some short road riding, but until the Diverge, nothing out there was astute at every kind of riding subject. The Women's Diverge E5 Comp, however, is made for exploring new roads, commuting to class, and everything in between. It redefines what a road bike can do, so ride wherever you want—this bike doesn't take "no" for an answer.

The Diverge is more capable than ever. And with the constant goal to best meet your needs, we took your number one request into account—tyre clearance. The new frame will comfortably fit up to 700x38mm tyres with plenty of room for mud, too. Along with tyre clearance, weight was a large factor in the development, and taking some design cues from the development of the Roubaix, we developed an E5 Premium aluminium frame that’s plenty light, certainly stiff for hard efforts, and undeniable tough.

Next up, we moved away from a traditional ‘cross geometry, instead opting for something that hasn’t been seen before—our Open Road Geometry. You can think of it as a road version of modern trail bike geometry. It provides playful handling and predictable steering for endless dirt skids and mid-corner drifts. The geo features a bottom bracket that's over a half-centimetre lower than the previous Diverge, a slacked-out head tube angle, short chainstays, and a short wheelbase. These changes make for a bike that's not only fun in the dirt, but also performs well on the road.

And while riding gravel and dirt roads on a road bike may add to the adventure, there’s only so much that wider tyres with lower pressures can absorb, in terms of bumps. With this in mind, we implemented a new version of our Future Shock into the Diverge design. It not only soaks up bumps with ease, but also adds the benefit of extremely predictable handling. That's because the wheelbase isn’t lengthening when you hit a bump, so the front end of the Diverge keeps the same effective head tube angle. In other words, when you dive hard into a turn, you won’t be surprised by under-steer or sloppy handling. Unlike the original Future Shock (found on the Roubaix), the Diverge's version features a progressive spring that makes this technology more suitable for off-road applications, where stiffer suspension is often needed to soak-up larger bumps and obstacles.

Adding to its multifaceted talents, we topped it off with three water bottle mounts, plus mounts for racks and fenders. For the spec, we wanted to make sure that it shifted crisply and braked smoothly mile after mile, so you'll find a crisp and reliable Shimano 105 groupset, hassle-free mechanical disc brakes, and an Axis Sport Disc wheelset. Every touchpoint of the bike is also tailored specifically for women, from the handlebar width to the crankarm length to the renowned Myth Sport saddle.
