Whether your goal is to escape on gravel back roads, far from cars and crowds, or drop the hammer at the front of your favorite gravel race, no bike does it better than the new Diverge. ItΓÇÖs quite simply the fastest, most capable - and just maybe the most fun - bike weΓÇÖve ever made, delivering a ride thatΓÇÖs quick and lively under power, but stable and confidence inspiring when the terrain gets rough. From Future Shock 2.0 and all-new gravel geometry, to internal storage and category leading tire clearance, the new Diverge represents everything weΓÇÖve 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. ItΓÇÖs the ultimate getaway vehicle.
Nothing unlocks a bikeΓÇÖs capability like tire clearance, so we gave the new Diverge a whopping 47mm of tire clearance with a 700c wheel and 2.1ΓÇ¥ with a 650b wheel. Thanks to a drive side chain stay utilizing a solid beam of carbon behind the chain rings weΓÇÖve created clearance without using a fragile dropped chain stay design or increasing chain stay length.
Speed, control and confidence - Future Shock 2.0 is the ultimate technology for the gravel rider. With 20mm of axial compliance and a hydraulic damper, Future Shock 2.0 suspends the rider not the bike. This keeps you confident and in control, able to keep the power down and stay off the brakes over rough dirt roads and in thick loose gravel, all while keeping your hands, arms and neck fresh. Since Future Shock 2.0ΓÇÖs damper is adjustable, youΓÇÖll be ready for the rough stuff and efficient on smooth pavement.
We tossed gravel geometry ΓÇÿstatus-quoΓÇÖ out the window. The new Diverge has the most progressive geometry weΓÇÖve 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. WeΓÇÖve increased the frameΓÇÖs reach, introduced a slacker head tube and a longer offset fork. All this creates incredible confidence with a planted feeling in the dirt, while specΓÇÖing shorter stems keeps the overall cockpit length the same and the steering lively. WeΓÇÖve kept the bikeΓÇÖs BB low to increase stability, but high enough to utilize with 650b wheels if thatΓÇÖs your jam.
WeΓÇÖve 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.
With a FACT 9r carbon frame, the Diverge Comp frame is incredible capable and race bike light. Pin it for your local dirt climb KOM, or grind up a giant back country peak, the light and lively Diverge will get you there faster.
