2019 Diverge Comp E5

2019 Diverge Comp E5 - $1,900

Narrowing down a bike that can do it all used to be tough going. Sure, some work well as a road bike and a 'cross bike, while others are good at commuting and some short road riding, but until the Diverge, nothing out there was astute at every kind of riding subject. The Diverge E5 Comp, however, is made for exploring new roads, commuting to class, and everything in between. It redefines what a road bike can do, so ride wherever you want—this bike doesn't take "no" for an answer.

This is one of the Diverge models available in a size 64cm (pictured here). Regardless of size, the geometry of the Diverge remains comfortable and responsive.

The Open Road Geometry of the Diverge provides playful handling and predictable steering for endless dirt skids and mid-corner drifts. The geometry features a bottom bracket that's over a half-centimeter lower than the previous Diverge, a slacked-out head tube angle, short chainstays, and a short wheelbase. These changes make for a bike that's not only fun in the dirt, but also performs well on the road.

This particular model pictured has had a few changes from the stock parts. We have installed the 46cm Specialized Adventure Hover Bars, and the 38c Pathfinder tires - these changes are for having fun in any type of gravel, and adding to the comfort of a long adventure ride.
