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 S-Works Diverge - SRAM eTap AXS is possibly the single most drool-worthy gravel bike on the market. The FACT 11r frame weighs less than 1000 grams and includes a SWAT door for storage. Carbon fiber abounds on this hyper-build, from Easton EC70 handlebars to the S-Works Power seat. SRAM eTap AXS derailleurs take shifting performance to a whole new level with a precision wireless system. Lastly, Roval Terra CLX rims laced to DT Swiss 240 hubs with DT Swiss Aerolite spokes execute your every movement with laser-like precision.
