DREAM BIG. NO LIMITS
Far from the same old rides and the same busy roads, riders are challenging limits like never before. So we challenged ourselves to create a bike that does more than live up to the demands of today’s gravel rider. Diverge wants more—more speed, more distance, more challenge.
FUTURE SHOCK 2.0
Sure, we made Future Shock for cobbles, but turns out it’s the ultimate technology for riding rough road, thick gravel, and chunky dirt. Future Shock 2.0’s adjustable, hydraulically damped travel keeps you in control and on target, all while protecting your hands, arms, and shoulders from the battering.
WITH GREAT CONFIDENCE, COMES GREAT SPEED
“What geometry is a gravel bike supposed to have?” Wrong question. “What does the gravel rider need?” Status quo tossed out the window, we created geometry so progressive it’s a revelation in the saddle. That little voice in the back of your head saying, “Stay off the brakes, you got this,” just got a lot louder.
LONGER AND SLACKER
Inspired by the Epic, a slacker headtube, longer reach, and shorter cockpit keeps Diverge stable so you can stay in control and on the gas in soupy gravel and rutted dirt.
RAKE AND TRAIL
With some slide rule wizardry, the Diverge’s new fork has increased rake and trail to ensure all that stability at speed never feels slow at the bars or ‘floppy’ at the front wheel.
GO HIGH, STAY LOW
We raised the Diverge’s bottom bracket by 6mm, improving pedaling clearance and making it more nimble, but at 80mm of drop, it’s still among the lowest in gravel for true stability.
Fatter is Funner
Nothing unlocks potential like tire clearance. Luckily, we’re feeling generous. Very generous—47mm on a 700c wheel and 2.1” on 650B. Crazy, we know, but wait until you rip a descent with that much rubber. Hallelujah!
We wanted mega-tire clearance, but we didn’t want to resort to long chainstays or a heavy, vulnerable, dropped-stay design. The answer? Our drive side chainstay is a narrow, solid beam of carbon between the tire and chainrings. You can have your cake and eat it too.
Innovate or Die
Sure, we’ve got super computers, we even 3D print saddles these days. But when our team decided to reinvent gravel geometry, no equation could tell us what was right, so we grabbed a hacksaw and some carbon fiber and got our hands dirty.
EVERYTHING YOU NEED, RIGHT WHERE YOU NEED IT
The Diverge’s internal SWAT compartment takes gear out of your pockets and puts it low in the frame, improving handling and keeping you more comfortable. Go ahead and rip past that first aid station, or take extra gear to escape farther into the unknown. SWAT pods keep it all dry and organized.
SUPER FAST, SUPER CAPABLE, SUPER LIGHT
At under 1,000 grams the Diverge’s frame is lighter than most stripped-down gravel race frames with skimpy clearance, while being more capable than anything else in the gravel. Climb it, race it, or load it down with packs and fenders for the long haul, Diverge does it all, faster and lighter than the rest.
FLAT BAR, FLAT OUT
If you thought the new Diverge was progressive, get a load of EVO. How about a 30mm longer reach, a 5mm lower BB, and a 70-degree headtube angle with our new Rhombus tire. This is flat bar gravel, a laboratory in the dirt for you to push your limits. Whatever you get into, send us video.
THERE'S NO SUCH THING AS TOO FAR
By dramatically increasing reach, slackening the headtube almost two degrees, and lowering the bottom bracket drop to 85mm, we’ve created the first flat bar specific gravel geometry with confidence to send it.
If there’s one thing gravel riders like talking about more than actually riding, it’s gear. From tires and helmets to shoes and chamois, gear makes the ride. So, let’s talk gravel goods.
