HOME > BIKES > ADVENTURE > 2018 MEN'S DIVERGE E5 SPORT

To diverge is to depart from the traditional route, and that's exactly what we have sought to do with the 2018 Diverge range. The Diverge is designed to be your partner in your next unrestricted adventure on the road, gravel track or dirt trail. The Diverge E5 Sport is packaged with the same technologies as its pricier brethren but puts the emphasis on reliability rather than flashy componentry.

The completely redesigned frame is constructed from our newly developed E5 Premium Aluminium and engineered with greater tyre clearance than ever before. The frame fits tyres of up to 700x42mm in width and takes cues from our Roubaix, making it stiff, durable and gloriously light. What's more, the frame is built around our brand new Open Road Geometry, as opposed to the traditional cross setup. The new lower bottom bracket, short chain stays, short wheelbase and slacked-out head tube angle, together create a frame optimised for predictable steering and playful handling. In short, the 2018 Diverge is immense fun on and off road.

To make the 2018 Diverge E5 Sport adventure ready, we've given it mounts for three bottle cages, racks and fenders, so you'll be ready for any weather over any distance, whether you're bike packing, commuting or pedalling down to the pub. Its components have been chosen with reliability in mind starting with the Shimano Sora groupset, hassle-free mechanical disc brakes, and finished with a fast-rolling Axis Sport wheelset.

  • Our Premium E5 aluminum frameset features our comfortable, yet confidence-inspiring, Open Road Geometry. Front & rear thru-axles are also included, making this Diverge the ultimate tool for your next adventure.
  • The lightweight FACT carbon fork is plenty stiff, aiding in handling, rigidity, and an overall light weight.
  • The Praxis Alba 2D is an incredibly stiff crankset with supreme ramping for precise shifts between the rings.

    Excellent all rounder for both commuting and road biking at the weekend. Very comfortable on long rides and pretty lightweight for the price. Handles well on rough gravel tracks, although you may want to change the tyres if riding for long periods. Smooth road rolling and the gears work well. The only niggle or downside is the mechanical disc brakes. Hydraulics are better, but its only a slight criticism.

    I can see me doing a lot of miles, for many years on this bike
