More Details of the Specialized DIVERGE E5
The Premium E5 aluminum frame provides a stiff, light and robust platform. In combination with the FACT Carbon fork, it results in a light, agile and versatile bike that can be ridden on any surface.
Specialized has thrown the “status quo” of Gravel geometries over board. The Diverge has one of the most progressive geometries Specialized has ever designed for a bike with a drop bar. This makes it possible to present you with a frame with very balanced riding characteristics. Specialized has extended the reach, flattened the steering angle and added a fork with a longer offset. Together, this offers a platform that gives confidence and stability on gravel and rough terrain. A stem ensures that the handlebar don’t get too far away and the steering remains dynamic. The depth of the bottom bracket has been chosen so that 650b wheels can also be mounted, while maintaining a smooth ride.
Specialized has equipped the Diverge a variety of mounting points, found on the fork and top tube. So no matter how long you are going to be on the road, you can take your equipment with you. Want to ride wider tires? The Diverge has 47mm clearance with 700C tires and 2.1″ with 650b wheels.
