The perfect gravel bike is achieved through excruciating attention to detail, from geometry to materials to cable routing. When Specialized designed the Diverge, they didn’t just look at their existing road and gravel bikes and tweak the geometry a bit. No. Instead, they utilized their 40 years of engineering experience to deliver something special — something that looks similar but is entirely different. Taking inspiration from their entire line-up, the Diverge is quite possibly the most fun bike Specialized has ever built.
The Diverge Expert is just plain cool. It packs all of the modern technology into a mid-level price tag that just screams “let’s go ride!” The FACT 9r carbon frame and fork has a SWAT door for extra storage, plus rack mounts and water bottle mounts so you can up-fit your bike for a multi-day adventure, or keep it svelte for an afternoon massacre of some local gravel roads. Shimano GRX RX810 Di2 electronic shifting ensures your drivetrain always finds the right gear and stays silent while doing so.
