Diverge E5

Whether your goal is to escape on gravel back roads, far from cars and crowds, toe the start line at your first gravel race, or simply get the most versatile bike on the road or dirt, no bike is better than the new Diverge. It's quite simply the fastest, most capable - and just maybe the most fun - alloy bike we've ever made, delivering a ride that's quick and lively, but stable and confidence inspiring when the terrain gets rough. With all-new gravel geometry and 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.

With a premium E5 alloy frame and a full carbon FACT fork the Diverge E5 delivers a fast, confident and comfortable ride on road, in the dirt, and over thick gravel. Shimano’s Claris 2x8 group gives a wide range of gears for any terrain, while Axis Elite alloy wheels and Pathfinder Sport 38mm tires provide an efficient ride on pavement with the versatility for hard pack dirt riding.

Great bike for fun

This bike is light, versatile, fast and great fun. I have been using it for more 6 months now and done probably 20-30 rides. Not a problem and good for hills and rougher roads. Great service from the pickup Shop

My new Diverge 5

Ok so I w been riding a 30 year old clunker bike on purpose. I have a bike from this century, but it is no comparison to the Diverge 5. I like this bike because it is efficient, lightweight and takes the power I put into and blasts me on my way. It has the room I need, the set up I need and the possibilities I need to take it places whether on long rides, bike packing or just cruising around the neighborhood.

Online pickup in store

Ordered a sale bike on black friday to be picked up in store. Jasmine was awesome with taking care of a little issue when assembled (not the store's fault) and made everything right. Great store and people. Way better experience than previous shops I have been thru! New go to shop.

Great bike fast and lightweight

The only thing I didn’t like the was factory pedals now that I put race face pedals it made a huge difference in the ride and I’m going to change out the narrow handle bars for adventure bar and gel tape .. all the other components are wonderful from factory

I love my Diverge E5

I have a 2020 Specialized Diverge and absolutely love it. It has well over 10,000 miles on it with no issues at all. I rode it 962 miles across Texas in 2020 hauling a Bob Trailer packed with about 50 pounds of gear. It handled it beautifully. I write about it often in my theoldguybicycleblog.com blog. Check it out sometime.

I want to like.

I want to like this bike, but I have had a lot of issues with ghost shifting. I have less than 200 miles on it, and it's been into the shop twice to try to address the issue. I thought it was fixed, but my last time out it started going crazy around mile 25. I love the ride when it's right.

Top and bottom

Treated myself to a used S-WORKS Diverge (Ultegra Di2) from 2018 and based on that have bought a 2022 Diverge E5 but upgrading it to Shimano 105 Di2 and adding hover bar. Love the ride. Buying a base spec frame and customising it the way you want is an interesting option.
