Specialized Diverge 2019 Adventure Road; we would describe this Specialized Diverge as a UK gravel bike using the original Roubaix style comfort and big tyre clearance.
Hop on the dirt path down the street, cruise through town to your favorite cafÃ©, or go on a proper overnight adventure rideâwhatever your plans may be, the Diverge is here to let you do what you want.
The Diverge is more capable than ever. And with the constant goal to best meet your needs, we took your number one request into accountâtyre 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 thatâs one of the lightest in its category.
Next up, we moved away from a traditional âcross geometry, instead opting for something that hasnât been seen beforeâour 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, thereâs 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 isnât 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 wonât 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. So while itâs one of the most smile-inducing bikes youâll ever shred fire roads on, itâs equally adept at bikepacking, commuting, or even a spin to your local brewery. For the spec, we've made sure to add components that are not only durable, but will perform over the long runâShimano Tiagra shifting paired with hydraulic disc brakes, 700x38mm Sawtooth tyres, and durable Axis Sport Disc wheels.
- The FACT 9r carbon frame features our adventure-bound Open Road Geometry, Future Shock Progressive suspension with 20mm of travel, and front/rear thru-axles, making it the ultimate tool for your next adventure.
- The lightweight FACT carbon fork is plenty stiff, aiding in handling and a light overall weight.
- Shimano's RS405 shifters are paired with Shimano Tiagra derailleurs for crisp shifts and reliable braking in a variety of conditions without batting an eyelash.
