£3,400.00 £2,884.99


The Diverge Comp has been designed to be a through-and-through exploration machine. It's equally adept at crushing dirt climbs as it is to cruising to the coffee shop or hopping into a local group ride. And while it might sound cliché in a landscape of bike claims chocked full with hyperbole the Diverge Comp truly is one bike that does it all.   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. For the spec we wanted to make sure that it shifted crisply and braked smoothly mile after mile so you'll find a Shimano Ultegra groupset Shimano hydraulic disc brakes and a DT R470 Disc wheelset.     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 no-fuss Ultegra shifting with hydraulic disc brakes provides precise shifting and plenty of stopping power.
