Diverge Sport Carbon


2023 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.

First Gravel Bike & fantastic!

Great performance and look. Very agile so super easy to transition from road to gravel in an instant. Great companion on shorter and longer trips. OEM tires are surprisingly good on both road and more challenging surfaces. The inclusion of the handlebar suspension is a welcome gift. So nothing negative to say really (except that you don't want to leave this bike unattended in urban areas), as it's confortable, great looking and highly capable. I have to say, I was truly impressed when transitioning from road to gravel riding at more than 30 km/h and the bike didn't budge for a second - even as a gravel beginner. So all in all, if your looking for a fantastic bike without truly breaking the bank this is it.




Not much to say other than this is the ultimate bike. I got hybrid pedals so I can clip or ride casual. Really fast and fantastic on the road or gravel.



First gravel Bike

Had a blast trying the gravel bike for the first time, I was pleasenty surprised how smooth the ride went, went over road and gravel terrain and the bike responded so well in the uneven terrain and was fast on the pavement road. I still own a road bike, I believe that the gravel bike will make me a stronger rider not to mention the fun that comes while off-roading.

Would Recommend?



Love my new ride!

SO happy with this purchase! It's my first gravel bike, after transitioning from a road bike and is so much fun to ride - very comfortable and I love that it feels stable and fast on all kinds of surfaces and terrain (I ride on a lot of dirt roads and crushed gravel trails). I upgraded to a carbon wheelset with a tubeless setup. The morning mist color is beautiful, too. Thank you, Specialized!!
