SPECIALIZED DIVERGE E5 - 2019

Specialized
£850.00

Hop on the dirt path down the street, cruise through town to your favourite café, or go on a proper overnight adventure ride—whatever 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 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.

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. So while it’s one of the most smile-inducing bikes you’ll ever shred fire roads on, it’s 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 run—Shimano 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.

How Much Can I Save Via Cyclescheme

Check out our personalised savings calculator!

Cyclescheme Savings Calculator

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

If your employer is a member of a cycle to work scheme (Cyclescheme, Bike2Work etc) all you need to do is visit one of our stores, or contact us to ask us for a quotation. Quotes can be provided for bicycles and bicycle accessories only. Once we have issued you a quotation, simply forward it to your employer for approval. Once you have been approved, you'll soon receive a certificate which can be redeemed for your new bike. The process usually takes between 2 - 3 weeks

Cyclescheme is available for mail order however a delivery charge of £29 will apply. This charge cannot be include in your quotation and must be paid for prior delivery. 

Please note: Unless your employer has a consumer credit licence the maximum spend limit for a bicycle & accessories is £1000. You can purchase bikes over £1000 and pay the difference, however legal ownership of the bike will remain the employers regardless of how much extra has been paid.
