2018 Specialized Diverge


2018 S-Works Diverge

The 2018 Diverge is a ride all, shred everything bike and a favorite for many of our riders. The Diverge is the definition of a quiver killer. While it can handle your local coffee shop ride, it shines on gnarly singletrack, beastly fire roads and your gravel path commute.

For 2018 Specialized went with a completely redesigned frame, and we dig it.  Tire clearance is now up to 700x42mm (or 650bx47mm), while older Diverges maxed out around 35mm.

Updated geometry allows for those killer mid-corner drifts, our favorite content on social. Mind not blown yet? Specialized also dropped in a Future Shock to absorb the bumps, the Road SWAT™ kit for integrated storage and a carbon Command Post XCP that features 35mm of travel.

SWAT integration, dope!

Key Features

  • The S-Works FACT 11r carbon frame features an adventure-bound Open Road Geometry, Future Shock Progressive suspension with 20mm of travel, and front/rear thru-axles, making it the ultimate tool for your next adventure.
  • The lightweight S-Works FACT carbon fork is plenty stiff, aiding in handling, rigidity, and an overall light weight.
  • The Roval CLX 32 wheelset has the perfect balance of lightweight, durability, and aerodynamics. It's stiff enough for sprinting, strong enough for abuse, and its CeramicSpeed bearings keep things silky-smooth, making CLX 32 wheels the ultimate all-rounders.

We all know the poem with the two roads diverging in a wood. That poor sap had to pick just one, but with the new Diverge, you can PR the well-beaten road and then switch gears to exploring one less travelled, all in one glorious afternoon. It took a ton of work, but for you, it’s how bike riding was always meant to be.
