The Specialized Diverge Expert carbon gravel road bike was designed by Specialized with the experienced rider in mind. Hence they've spec'd a no-compromise build that includes a SRAM force 1 drivetrain and hydraulic disc brakes as well as a lightweight Praxis Zayante carbon crankset. Your posterior will be happy over even the bumpiest of terrain with the Power Expert saddle and you'll also be rolling on super fast carbon fiber wheels and tyres courtesy of a Roval C38 disc wheelset wrapped with 700x38mm Pathfinder Pro tyres.

There's clearance for either 700x42mm or 650b x 47mm tires should you want to go larger volume than standard, and for serious adventures there's three water bottle mounts, mounts for racks and mudguards, and Specialized's Road SWAT™ kit.

This Diverge also comes with the benefit of a Future Shock suspension system up front and an S-Works CG-R carbon seatpost with Zertz insert to take the buzz out of rough surfaces, so if ever there was a bike for going hard on gravel this is it.

Road Bike Sizing Guide

Road bikes as the name implies are for road use. There are a growing number of “gravel” or “adventure” bikes which are based on road bicycles, but feature wider and more versatile tyres and disc brakes, so you can also do light trail riding such as towpaths. They are also more pothole resistant!

Sizing is normally in cm, and is a measurement from the centre of the chain-wheel axle (The BB or bottom bracket) and the top of the frame seat tube. Some are measured to the centre of the seat tube where it meets the top tube (otherwise known as the crossbar).

That measurement is on road bikes normally in CM – and no-one really knows why! Some road bikes will use “T-Shirt Sizing” so S, M, L, XL etc. but there will be a geometry chart that then shows the measurement in CM.

Pre-Order

With Pre-Order, you can purchase the latest items added to our store in advance of them arriving with us.

You Pre-Order is prioritised (at no additional charge); meaning that, as soon as the product arrives with us, we can wrap it straight back up and get it sent out to you - it often never even hits the stock room shelves!

Pre-Launch

With Pre-Launch, the date when we expect to receive the product ourselves is still a little too hazy to be confident in accepting Pre-Orders.

So, instead, you can submit your email address against the item you are interested in and we will email you as soon as stock arrives on the system.

Estimated Delivery Dates

Estimated Delivery Dates are given on Pre-Order and Pre-Launch products. They are for indication purposes only and can change at any time without notice.

The dates we provide are based on indications given by our suppliers. Whenever we get updated information from our suppliers we will endeavour to update the Estimated Delivery Dates provided on product pages.
