SPECIALIZED DIVERGE E5 SPORT - 2018

Specialized
£1,000.00

With the Diverge Sport, you'll be prepared for anything, from smooth tarmac to the loosest, roughest tracks out there. It's packed with all the same technologies as its pricier cousins, only its spec places an emphasis on reliable performance, not components so flashy you'll be eating nothing but top ramen for months.

With a completely redesigned frame, the new Diverge is more capable than ever. And with the constant goal to best meet your needs, we took your number one request into account—tire clearance. The new frame will comfortably fit up to 700x42mm tires with plenty of room for mud, too. Along with tire 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 durable.

Next up, we moved away from a traditional ‘cross geometry, instead opting for something that hasn’t been seen before—Open Road Geometry. We know what you’re thinking, “it’s just another marketing term,” but for the Diverge, we truly did develop an entirely new geometry. With a touch less hyperbole, 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 tires 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, 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.

To add to its multi-faceted talents, we topped the new Diverge off with three water bottle mounts, and mounts for racks and fenders,–so while it’s one of the most fun bikes you’ll ever shred fire roads on, it’s equally adept at bike packing, commuting, or even a spin to your local brewery. The spec, meanwhile, hits right on the money with a sturdy Shimano Sora groupset, hassle-free mechanical disc brakes, and a strong Axis Sport wheelset.

  • Our Premium E5 aluminium frameset features our comfortable yet confidence-inspiring, Open Road Geometry. Front & rear thru-axles are also included, making this Diverge the ultimate tool for your next adventure.
  • The lightweight FACT carbon fork is plenty stiff, aiding in handling, rigidity, and an overall light weight.
  • The Praxis Alba 2D is an incredibly stiff crankset with supreme ramping for precise shifts between the rings.

Cyclescheme is the UK's number one provider of tax-free bikes for the Government's Cycle to Work initiative. It's a brilliant programme where everyone wins - employees make big savings on new bikes, employers get a healthier workforce and save money too! Cyclescheme has a great track record in helping businesses of all sizes to set up and run successful Cycle to Work schemes.

How it Works

The cycle to work scheme is a government initiative which allows employees to hire bicycles tax free from their employers using salary sacrifice. As the payments into the scheme are made before tax and national insurance are calculated this leads to potential savings of up to 42%

Typical example for an employee earning £18,000 pa

Please Note: Savings will differ for each individual

Total Cost of Bike and accessories £600
Net Cost of Bike and accessories inc admin £600
Income Tax saving over hire period £120
National Insurance saving over hire period £72
   
Final Cost of Bike & Accessories £408
Total Saving £192
Gross Salary Sacrifice (12 month period) £50
Net Salary Sacrifice (12 month period) £34
   
Percentage Saving over RRP 32%

How to Apply

If your employer is a member of a cycle to work scheme all you need to do is visit one of our stores, or call us to ask us for a quotation for the bicycle and accessories you wish to choose and pass the quote to your employer. Once they check that you are eligible and are happy you have met their own criteria, you will be sent a certificate which you will be able to exchange for the bike/accessories

Please note: Unless your employer has a consumer credit licence the maximum spend limit for a bicycle & accessories is £1000.
