Specialized 2018 Diverge Expert


If you're like us, the last thing that you want is your bike holding you back from having the ride of your life. If you see rough roads or flowy singletrack, we want you to ride it, not think, "That looks fun, but I can't do it on this bike." We're tired of our fun being restricted, and that's why we developed the new Diverge Expert. Now, you can get out there and not only explore new roads, but entirely new rides— we promise that the bike won't be a limiting factor.

With a completely redesigned frame, the new Diverge is more capable than ever. And with the constant goal to best meet your needs, we took your number one request into account—tyre clearance. The new frame will comfortably fit up to 700x42mm tyres with plenty of room for mud, too. Along with tyre clearance, weight was a large factor in the development, and taking some design cues from the development of the Roubaix, we developed a FACT 9r carbon frame that's one of the lightest in the category.
