Specialized Diverge Expert Carbon Rival AXS Disc Gravel Bike 2022

With its advanced, FACT 9r full carbon frameset that possesses a refined material layup, the Specialized Diverge Expert Carbon Rival AXS Disc Gravel Bike is equally at home across the roughest gravel tracks as it is on fast road sections of a ride. The reactive but compliant ride afforded by the frameset is complemented by its mixed-terrain-specific geometry that heightens stability off-road but places the rider in an efficient position for consistent power output on the tarmac.

The Future Shock 2.0 headset suspension system grants 20mm of travel and combines with the frameset's acceptance of plush, cushioned 700c x 47mm or 650b x 2.1” tyres to result in extra control, comfort and traction over the most irregular terrain. A Roval Terra carbon wheelset affords a potent blend of strength and low weight, promoting lively accelerations and nimble cornering when faced with technical riding scenarios. 

The SRAM Rival AXS gears use their wireless electronic configuration to provide slick, accurate shifting and matching SRAM hydraulic disc brakes afford excellent stopping power and at all times, even in bad weather. A SWAT down tube compartment stores tools and spares while plenty of luggage mounts across the frameset can carry all the gear required on extended adventures.

  • The FACT 9r carbon frameset features a sophisticated material layup to increased comfort, heighten pedalling reactivity and lower the weight to race-bike levels

  • The Future Shock 2.0 headset suspension system offers 20mm of travel to improve control and comfort over rough terrain

  • Roval Terra 700c carbon wheels mated to Pathfinder Pro 42mm tyres ensure performance across smooth pavement, dirt roads and gravel tracks
  • The SRAM Rival AXS gear configuration uses its advanced electronic, wireless format to deliver exceptionally crisp and reliable gear shifts
  • SRAM hydraulic disc brakes provide assured, accurate stopping power in all conditions
  • SWAT down tube storage neatly holds tools, spares and a jacket
