2022 Specialized Diverge Expert Carbon

Whether your goal is to escape on gravel back roads, far from cars and crowds, or drop

the hammer at the front of your favourite gravel race, no bike does it better than the new

Diverge. It’s quite simply the fastest, most capable - and just maybe the most fun - bike

we’ve ever made, delivering a ride that’s quick and lively under power, but stable and

confidence inspiring when the terrain gets rough. From Future Shock 2.0 and all-new

gravel geometry, to internal storage and category leading tire clearance, the new Diverge

represents everything we’ve learned over more than 40 years of riding road, gravel and

dirt. The Diverge writes an entirely new chapter in the gravel bike category, so you can

dream up entirely new rides. It’s the ultimate getaway vehicle.

• With a FACT 9r carbon frame, the Diverge Expert frame is incredible capable and

race bike light. Pin it for your local dirt climb KOM, or grind up a giant back country

peak, the light and lively Diverge will get you there faster.

• Speed, control and confidence - Future Shock 2.0 is the ultimate technology for the

gravel rider. With 20mm of axial compliance and a hydraulic damper, Future Shock

2.0 suspends the rider not the bike. This keeps 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. Since Future Shock 2.0’s

damper is adjustable, you’ll be ready for the rough stuff and efficient on smooth

pavement.

• We tossed gravel geometry ‘status-quo’ out the window. The new Diverge has the

most progressive geometry we’ve 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.

We’ve increased the frame’s reach, introduced a slacker head tube and a longer

offset fork. All this creates incredible confidence with a planted feeling in the dirt,

while spec’ing shorter stems keeps the overall cockpit length the same and the

steering lively. We’ve kept the bike’s BB low to increase stability, but high enough to

utilise with 650b wheels if that’s your jam.

• We’ve given the Diverge 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.

• Nothing unlocks a bike’s capability like tire clearance, so we gave the new Diverge a

whopping 47mm of tire clearance with a 700c wheel and 2.1” with a 650b wheel.

Thanks to a drive side chain stay utilising a solid beam of carbon behind the chain

rings we’ve created clearance without using a fragile dropped chain stay design or

increasing chain stay length.

• The more capable your bike, the bigger your rides get, so Diverge borrows SWAT

internal storage from the legendary Stumpy. The SWAT door lets you utilise space in

the down tube to store tools, a flat kit, nutrition and even our SWAT Jacket. It keeps

weight off your body, low in the bike for better handling, and makes you more

self-sufficient, so get out there. SWAT’s got your back.
