Specialized Diverge E5 Gravel Bike 2023 54cm – Gloss Redwood/Rusted Red


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. With a premium E5 alloy frame and a full carbon FACT fork the Diverge E5 delivers a fast confident and comfortable ride on road in the dirt and over thick gravel. Shimano’s Claris 2×8 group gives a wide range of gears for any terrain while Axis Elite alloy wheels and Pathfinder Sport 38mm 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 Base 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 ou 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 machined alloy beam behind the chain rings we’ve created clearance without using a fragile dropped chain stay design or increasing chain stay length.
