Product Details

Specialized Diverge Expert X1 2019 Road Bike

With the Diverge Expert X1 - Specialized have joined the race in the all-rounder 1x road/cross bike.

Key Features

  • 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 expert 1X 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 and this has continued into the 2019
  • 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 2019 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
  • Sram Force 1 shifting and hydraulic disc brakes are a revelation - more on this
  • Clearance for full mudguards

Here's How Specialized Describe the Specialized Diverge Expert 1X

  • If you’re like us, the last thing that you want is your bike holding you back from having the ride of your life. If you see rough roads or flowy singletrack, we want you to ride it, not think, “That looks fun, but I can't do it on this bike.” We're tyred of our fun being restricted, and that's why we developed the new Diverge Expert X1. Now, you can get out there and not only explore new roads, but entyrely new rides—we promise that the bike won’t be a limiting factor.

  • 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 700x42mm (or 650b x 47mm) 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 a FACT 9r carbon frame that’s one of the lightest in its category.
