SPECIALIZED Diverge Comp E5 Men's 54cm
|Options||54cm Satin Graphite/Black -|
Made for exploring new roads commuting to class and everything in between the Diverge Comp E5 redefines how many functions one bike can fulfil.
With a completely redesigned frame the new Diverge is more capable than ever. And with the constant goal to best meet your needs we took your number one request into account tire clearance. The new frame will comfortably fit up to 700x42mm tires with plenty of room for mud too. Along with tire clearance weight was a large factor in the development and taking some design cues from the development of the Roubaix we developed an E5 Premium Aluminium frame that's plenty light certainly stiff for hard efforts and undeniable durable.
Next up we moved away from a traditional Ã¯Â¿Â½cross geometry instead opting for something that hasn't been seen before Open Road Geometry. We know what you're thinking Ã¯Â¿Â½it's just another marketing termÃ¯Â¿Â½ but for the Diverge we truly did develop an entirely new geometry. With a touch less hyperbole you can think of it as a road version of modern trail bike geometry. It provides playful handling and predictable steering for endless dirt skids and mid-corner drifts. The geo features a bottom bracket that's over a half-centimetre 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.
And while riding gravel and dirt roads on a road bike may add to the adventure there's only so much that wider tires with lower pressures can absorb in terms of bumps. With this in mind we implemented a new version of our Future Shock into the Diverge design. It not only soaks up bumps with ease but also adds the benefit of extremely predictable handling. That's because the wheelbase isn't lengthening when you hit a bump so the front end of the Diverge keeps the same effective head tube angle. In other words when you dive hard into a turn you won't be surprised by under steer or sloppy handling. Unlike the original Future Shock the Diverge's version features a progressive spring that makes this technology more suitable for off-road applications where stiffer suspension is often needed to soak-up larger bumps and obstacles.
To add to its multifaceted talents we topped this Diverge off with three water bottle mounts plus mounts for racks and fenders so it's equally adept at long trips as it is to short rides to the local brewery. The Diverge E5 Elite frame is topped off with a reliable Shimano 105 groupset hassle-free mechanical-disc brakes from Tektro and a durable pair of Axis Elite wheels.
