Specialized Diverge Base Disc Gravel Bike 2021
The entry-level model in the Specialized Diverge carbon range, the Diverge Base Disc Gravel Bike is engineered from stiff, strong FACT 8r carbon. It features the same progressive geometry as the top-end models, one that is slacker and longer, with a bottom bracket that's high enough to accommodate 650b wheels but low enough for stability over the rougher stuff. It offers a responsive ride feel, with a Future Shock 1.5 damper taking out the worst of the impacts from bumpy roads and trails and saving your hands, arms and neck from associated discomfort and fatigue.
SRAM Apex components complement the bike perfectly, bringing efficiency and performance to your shifting and braking. The combination of a 40t chainring and 11-42-tooth cassette ensures enough gears for tackling climbs and building up speed on fast descents alike. Specialized's Axis Elite Disc wheels and Specialized Pathfinder Sport tyres are a reliable choice, just what you need for all-terrain riding. If longer adventures and multi-day bikepacking trips are your thing, you can mount luggage with ease.
- With a FACT 8r carbon frame, the Diverge Base is incredibly capable and race-bike light. Pin it for your local dirt climb KOM, or grind up a giant backcountry peak, the light and lively Diverge will get you there faster.
- Speed, control and confidence - Future Shock 1.5 is the 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
- The new Diverge has the most progressive geometry Specialized has ever created for a drop-bar bike, giving riders a capable and stable bike in the dirt, that still feels responsive and nimble on the road. It includes increased reach, a slacker head tube and a longer offset fork. All this creates incredible confidence with a planted feeling in the dirt, while speccing shorter stems keeps the overall cockpit length the same and the steering lively. The bike’s low bottom bracket increases stability but is high enough to use with 650b wheels if preferred
- The Diverge has plenty of rack mounts, including fork and top tube mounts, to ensure you can take what you need, no matter how far you plan to go, or how long you plan to stay out
- A whopping 47mm of tyre clearance with a 700c wheel and 2.1” with a 650b wheel. Thanks to a drive-side chainstay utilising a solid beam of carbon behind the chainrings clearance is created without using a fragile dropped chainstay design or increasing chainstay length
