Product Description

The ultimate adventurer. The Specialized S-Works Diverge is a gravel road bikes that takes you wherever you want to go. Stack it full of bags and lights and see if you can go the distance, or show your friends that speed and comfort can go hand in hand.

The Specialized FACT 11r carbon frame is super lightweight and stiff, allowing fantastic power transfer while being compliant and softening bumps along the way. With help from the Roubaix, the new Diverge frame is lighter, stiffer and more durable weighing in at a featherlight 880g. The Open Road Geometry takes cues from Specialized’s trail mountain bikes, with slacker a head angle which relaxes and stabilises the steering, for greater predictability. A lower bottom bracket than the previous Diverge as well as short chainstays make it a playful handling bike, one that’s as at home on fire roads as it is on city streets.

The frame comes equipped for adventure, with Plug and Play rack mounts, fender mounts, three bottle cages mounts and massive tyre clearance, large enough for 38c tyres and a load of mud. An easy threaded bottom bracket, flat mount disc mounts, and a 12x142mm thru axle and rear spacing makes the Diverge up to date. The FACT Carbon fork does a wonderful job of minimising vibrations coming from the wheels. It has 12x100 spacing with a thru-axle that helps give the Diverge predictable handling.

Unique to the suspension world, the Specialized Future Shock is a shock that has a cartridge sitting within the headtube, with 20mm travel on offer between the stem and frame. In this setup, the geometry of the bike stays the same when going through bumps and rough terrain, giving the same predictable handling throughout. The Future Shock not only smooths bumps and vibrations, it also helps reduce fatigue during long rides. It’s different from the Roubaix Future Shock is the progressive nature of the Diverge shock, which helps to maintain traction on off-road trails and doesn’t use all the travel so easily.

This Diverge gets the full S-Works treatment with a Carbon Hover Drop handlebar, alloy stem with titanium bolts, and Body Geometry S-Works Phenom saddle with carbon rails. The Roval CLX 32 Disc carbon wheelset is super lightweight and strong, being able to take on a wide variety of scenarios. Ceramic bearings reduce wear and maintenance, while rolling quickly. The wide internal diameter of the Roval rims means that the 38c Trigger Pro 2Bliss tyres have plenty of support in the corners.

The unusual drivetrain setup takes the best of both the mountain bike and road worlds, combining XTR and RS785 Di2. The XTR rear derailleur shifts the 11-40T cassette and is paired with an RS785 shifter, which also controls the powerful RS805 disc brakes. The 1x11 setup simplifies the drivetrain, yet gives a wide gear range. The cheery on top of this flagship adventure bike is the Specialized Command Post XCP dropper post, giving 35mm travel to get the saddle out the way when you need to.

For the very best, you can’t beat the Specialized S-Works Diverge for adventuring duties.

Road Bike Guide

 

Road Bike Guide

Is a Road Bike Right for Me?

If you’re new to the cycling world, we highly recommend taking a look at our bike buying guide overview or our road bike buying guide to help you decide what type of bike is right for your needs.

When you’re choosing a road bike, there are a few things to look out for which can help you work out the quality and performance you can expect from a particular model.


Usage

What road bike is right for you? There are a few different kinds of road bike, and they all have their specialities. We break down their strengths and usage in an easy to read table below.

Type of Road Bike

Usage

Pros

Cons

Sportive Road

Long distance, training, sportive and endurance riding, as well as rough roads.

Comfortable, relaxed geometry is more accessible for riders new to road cycling.

Not as aggressive or stiff, so serious racers may look for a road race bike.

Road Race

Racing and training.

Lightweight, aggressive geometry for most efficient riding position.

Range limited to tarmac roads and cycle paths.

Aero Race

Road and criterium racing.

Aero dynamically efficient and fast. Stiff frames and aggressive geometry.

Heavier than road race bikes.

Flat Bar Road

Training and commuting. Comfortable, fast city riding.

Upright riding position is great for training and city riding.

Limited options of bikes. MTB-like position not great for racing.

Frame Material

The vast majority of road bikes are made from either aluminium alloy or carbon fibre. Alloy bikes can offer higher tier groupsets for a lower price, whereas carbon frames come at a significant premium, but are lighter and give that extra performance advantage.

Aluminium

Aluminium alloy frames
Alloy frames have come a long way recently, using hydroforming and butting to keep the weight low, while keeping stiffness high.

Carbon fibre

Carbon fibre composite frames
Carbon frames have a lighter weight and greater stiffness, while maintaining excellent comfort.


Fork

Road bike forks are made to be lightweight and stiff, giving accurate steering, as well as a comfortable ride. Budget road bikes will have alloy forks, whereas mid-range forks often have mix-material forks, with alloy steerer tubes and carbon fork blades. Carbon bladed forks deliver a more comfortable ride, absorbing road vibrations and flexing slightly in rough roads. Full carbon forks are found on high end road bikes. They are especially lightweight and offer even greater stiffness.


Groupset

A bike’s groupset, or drivetrain, is where the biggest difference in component quality is seen. A complete groupset comprises of the following parts:

  • Chainset (aka Crankset)
  • Bottom bracket
  • Brakes
  • Brake levers
  • Shifters
  • Front & rear derailleur
  • Chain
  • Cassette

Road groupsets are supplied by Shimano, SRAM or Campagnolo. Having reliable and fast shifting can make all the difference when pushing hard. The majority of road bikes have double chainring drivetrains, while triple chainring setups are usually only found on low end bikes and touring bikes. Road bikes will have 7-11 speeds in the rear, with higher gears meaning more options for smoother riding.

Road Groupsets

Brakes

Disc Brakes

Disc brakes
Disc brakes offer greater stopping power and modulation. They work as well in wet as dry weather, and don’t require the rims to be replaced periodically. They come at a weight penalty, however.

Calliper Rim Brakes

Calliper rim brakes
Rim brakes are lightweight and easy to maintain. They allow greater aerodynamics for aero road bikes and


Wheels & Tyres

Types of tyres

Road bikes tyres don’t vary as much as mountain bike or even hybrid, but they still make a huge difference to how the bike rides. For a detailed look into road bike tyres, see our guide.

Road tyres have long been offered as either clincher or tubular. Clincher tyres are the standard tyres that fit onto standard rims with a tube holding the air. Tubular tyres are glued to a special tubular rim and are fully encased, doing without a tube.

Tubeless tyres are now a feature of road bikes, delivering a compromise between tubular and clincher tyres. They look the same as clincher tyres, but pair up with special rims to offer a proper seal within the tyres, also doing away with tubes.

Tyre Size

Road tyres are traditionally quite narrow. Nowadays the accepted standard is 25c, but 23c and 28c tyres are very common too. The larger the size tyre, the more comfortable they will be, but they will also be heavier and potentially slower rolling. Sportive and flat bar road bikes will commonly have wider tyres, whereas race and aero road bike will tend towards narrower tyres.
