Looking to get a bit of gravel in your life? With a Future Shock at the front, compliant seatpost, and a geometry that translates into a stable ride, the Specialized Diverge is in its element well after the tarmac ends.
With the ability to run both 700 x 42mm and 650x47mm rubber and room for mud, the Diverge can handle just about anything you throw its way. The bike borrows quite a few design cues from the Roubaix, and at the Comp Level spec, the frame is made from Specialized's Fact 9 carbon, features a 2x11 Ultegra drivetrain, and DT 470 Disc wheels which wrapped in 700x38 Sawtooth 2Bliss Ready tyres.

The bike is based around the brands Open Road geometry which Specialized calls the road bike equivalent of a modern trail bike. While it's not too far off the Crux 'cross bike, the BB is half a centimetre lower, the head angle is slacker, and the wheelbase is longer.
The Future Shock offers 20mm of progressive travel at the handlebars to take the square edge off of big bumps without bottoming out straight away or bobbing too much as you pedal along,. At the back, the S-Works GC-R carbon post provides substantial vertical compliance rounding out the ride quality.
Given the Diverge is a gravel bike designed for all-day (or even overnight) epics. There are bosses for three bottle cage, racks and fenders too.
Tredz is selling Specialized's gravel crusher at a 32-per cent discount, knocking £961 off the retail price for Black Friday, with sizes 52cm, 54cm, 56cm and 64cm available.
