Escape on gravel roads with the Specialized Diverge Elite E5 bike. Fast, versatile, and fun, it boasts premium alloy frame, carbon fork, and Shimano GRX 400 groupset. Explore new adventures with confidence on any terrain.

Whether your goal is to escape on gravel back roads, far from cars and crowds, toe the start line at your first gravel race, or simply get the most versatile bike on the road or dirt, no bike is better than the new Diverge. It's quite simply the fastest, most capable - and just maybe the most fun - alloy bike we've ever made, delivering a ride that's quick and lively, but stable and confidence inspiring when the terrain gets rough. With all-new gravel geometry 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. The Diverge Elite E5 utilizes our premium E5 alloy frame and a full carbon FACT fork for a fast, confident and comfortable ride on road, in the dirt, and over thick gravel. Shimano?s gravel inspired GRX 400 group shifts 2x10 gears smoothly on any terrain and Axis Elite alloy wheels with 38mm Pathfinder tires provide an efficient ride on pavement with the versatility for hard pack dirt riding.

  • Our Premium E5 Aluminum frame provides a stiff, light, and durable platform. When mated to our full carbon FACT fork, the Diverge E5 becomes a light, lively and versatile bike ready to attack any surface.
  • 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 utilize 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 utilizing a solid beam of carbon behind the chainrings, we’ve created clearance without using a fragile dropped chain stay design or increasing chain stay length.

Cycle to Work Scheme: Affordable Riding for UK Employees

Unlock a cost-effective way to own the bike of your dreams through the Cycle to Work Scheme. This initiative, available to employees in the UK, lets you enjoy the benefits of cycling while saving on your bike purchase.

With the Cycle to Work Scheme, you can use your pre-tax salary to acquire a brand-new bicycle and essential cycling accessories. This means significant savings for you, as your salary sacrifice reduces both your income tax and National Insurance contributions.

The process is seamless: Choose the bike that suits your needs and budget from our extensive range. Your employer will then set up a salary sacrifice arrangement, spreading the cost of your bike over a specified period, typically 12 to 18 months.

Once the salary sacrifice period ends, you have the option to own the bike outright for a nominal fee, ensuring you get to keep and enjoy your trusted two-wheeled companion for years to come.
