The All New 2018 Diverge Comp - Dream Build Edition

The Specialized Diverge got a redesign for 2018, and let me tell you, it will not disappoint!

With clearance for up to either 700x42mm or 650bx47mm tires, frame weights that can dip below 900 grams (see S-Works), and a Future Shock that's geared specifically to riding smoothly over harsh terrain, the new Diverge is the ultimate bike. It's also moved away from a traditional ‘cross geometry, instead opting for a new Open Road Geometry.


Three of the bigger changes to the Diverge:


1. Future Shock w/ Progressive Spring

Specially tuned with a stiffer spring rate for rough roads, this Future Shock gives you the feeling of floating over harsh terrain and of being glued to the tarmac on windy descents.




2. All-New Geometry

Open Road Geometry crushes both dirt and road with confidence, featuring a lower BB, slacker head tube, and shorter chainstays.



3. Ready for Anything!

With clearance for up to 700x42mm or 650bx47mm tires, Plug + Play fender mounts, rack mounts, and SWAT™ / dropper post compatibility, the only thing limiting your ride is your imagination.
