Description

This thing called ‘gravel riding’ is still evolving still being defined. What’s next? Hop on the new Diverge Expert EVO and you tell us. It’s designed to get aggressive to push the boundaries of what we thought was possible on a gravel bike. With flat bars and geometry even more progressive then the new drop bar Diverge you better hang onto your flannel. We’ve significantly increased the reach slackened the head tube and lowered the bottom bracket to put you ‘in’ the bike for a super planted feeling. From sending technical single track to ripping flowing fire road descents if you’re looking for a partner to take your gravel riding to new levels nothing’s faster more fun or rowdier than the Diverge EVO. The Diverge Comp EVO’s premium E5 Aluminum frame is spec’d with our Future Shock 1.5 specifically tuned for technical gravel riding. The bike’s SRAM NX 1×11 group Tektro brakes and X-Fusion Manic dropper post add to the Diverge Comp EVO’s boundary pushing abilities. Our new Rhombus 42mm gravel tire the most aggressive gravel tread we make and a set of Axis Elite alloy wheels round out the Diverge Comp EVO’s personality as a capable and rowdy partner.   Our Premium E5 Aluminum frame provides a stiff light and durable platform. When mated to our full carbon FACT fork the Diverge EVO becomes a light lively and versatile bike ready to tackle the most technical gravel and dirt as aggressively as you could wish. Speed control and confidence – Future Shock 1.5 is ideal technology for the gravel rider. With 20mm of axial compliance Future Shock 1.5 is progressively tuned to keep you confident and in control able to keep the power down and stay off the brakes over rough dirt roads and in thick loose gravel all while keeping your hands arms and neck fresh. With the Diverge EVO we took our new progressive gravel geometry to new levels. We’ve lengthened the frame 30mm over a drop bar Diverge Size Medium lowered the bottom bracket and slackened the head tube. This gives the Diverge EVO more confidence over technical terrain while keeping the cockpit comfortable with flat bars. It also allows for a short stem to make all that stability feel nimble and quick at the bars. Nothing unlocks a bike’s capability like tire clearance so we gave the Diverge EVO a whopping 47mm of tire clearance with a 700c wheel and 2.1” with a 650b wheel. Thanks to a drive side chain stay utilizing a machined alloy beam behind the chain rings we’ve created clearance without using a fragile dropped chain stay design or increasing chain stay length.
