2022 Diverge Sport Carbon

Whether your goal is to escape on gravel back roads, far from cars and crowds, or drop the hammer at the front of your favorite gravel race, no bike does it better than the new Diverge. It's quite simply the fastest, most capable - and just maybe the most fun - bike we've ever made, delivering a ride that's quick and lively under power, but stable and confidence inspiring when the terrain gets rough. From Future Shock 1.5 and all-new gravel geometry, to 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

Gravel riding may be a ‘new’ sport, but our Diverge Sport Carbon has been developed thanks to over four decades of experience. It’s got our Future Shock 1.5 and a FACT 8r carbon frame for a fast, confident and comfortable ride on road, in the dirt, and over thick gravel. With gravel-inspired SRAM Apex 1 1x11 shifting and DT Swiss G540 wheels the Diverge Sport’s as capable as it is versatile. With Kanza winning Pathfinder Pro 38mm tires, the same rubber we spec on the S-Works Diverge, you’re ready to ride as fast and as far as you want.

Fabulous Bike

This bike is as fast as my road bike but with additional versatility and extra stability due to the wider tires. The 'future shock' is amazing and helps when you hit potholes, which seem to be a regular occurrence on our city roads. I highly recommend this bike.

So Far, So Good!!

I love this bike! I wanted a gravel bike because a lot of the roads in my community are pretty rough. Pot holes and debris are a common thing for me so I thought why not. I also wanted to be able to experience other terrains not well suited for a classic road bike. The frame is super light weight so even though the tires and wheels on this thing are pretty robust, I really didn't notice a huge difference between it and the Roubaix I have at home. The future shock is a really great feature and I am glad to have it for rough terrain. I'm not a bike connoisseur by any means but this was a great choice for my first gravel bike!!

Great bike, no regrets!

Such a great bike, great tyres, great fit, everything! True to size, I got the 56 at 5’10”, which fell into 2 sizes but really really happy with the sizing. So comfortable, it’s like a road bike on yummy thick carpet but when the dirt comes along, glides like an mtb. Not for the proper rough but gravel is a piece of cake. Future shock 1.5 is brilliant, after I fitted the medium spring, which was easy enough to do. All in all, very happy

Best Gravel Bike ever

Tested a few gravel bikes but this one outstands from the first stroke. The future shock is super comfortable and you don't even realize how much it works until you ride another bike. Geometry and frame are really good - racing or long distance rides - I have own this bike for a year and I am super happy with it. Highly recommended.

Easily a great bike for

Easily a great bike for someone who does not want to spend loads but still wants carbon & Future Shock. If you can sacrifice SWAT for Future Shock 1.5 (which can later be upgraded to 2.0) then this is the bike for you!
