About the Specialized Diverge Comp E5 The real fun starts where the road ends, but you still need a bike that can get you there, and maybe take a few shortcuts along the way. This is that fabled one bike, just as much at home on flowy singletrack or gravel as It is on traditional roads. A more capable road bike won't cut it, nor will a more road-worthy 'cross bike for that matter. No, you need a dedicated gravel bike like the Diverge. First and foremost, it's fun and always down for a good time, but with the progressively-tuned Specialized Future Shock, fast and stable Open Road Geometry, and plenty of tire clearance, it redefines the possibilities for adventure on a drop-bar bike. Gravel riding might still be finding its legs as an “official” sport, but that doesn't mean we couldn't treat it like one with the Diverge Comp's build. Spec'd with Shimano's legendary 105 11-speed group for its crisp shifts and powerful hydraulic disc brakes, as well as reliable Axis Sport Disc wheels wrapped with 700x35mm Specialized Roadsport, tyres and fan-favourite Power Sport saddle. Clearance for either wider 700c or 650B tires. Mounting points for three water bottles racks and fenders mean it is ready for anything. The Diverge not only has everything you need for pretty much any pedal-powered adventure-whether it's gravel racing, bikepacking, or weekend shredding-it does so at a frame weight that's close to today's high-end road bikes.
