2021 Specialized S-Works Diverge

Whether your goal is to escape on gravel back roads, far from cars and crowds,
or drop the hammer at the front of your favourite 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 Specialized have 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 2.0 and all-new gravel geometry, to
internal storage and category leading tire clearance, the new Diverge
represents everything they’ve learned over more than 40 years of riding road,
gravel and dirt.

Demand the absolute pinnacle of gravel performance? The 2021 Specialized S-Works Diverge delivers with its FACT 11r carbon frame and Future Shock 2.0 for a light and lively ride that’s incredibly stable and confidence inspiring. The SRAM Red AXS eTap group provides a huge range of gears with a simple, wireless 1x set-up and SRAM’s Orbit fluid clutch for flawless shifts in any terrain. Roval’s ultralight and super tough Terra CLX wheels with Kanza winning Pathfinder Pro 38mm tires provide the most versatile and capable combination for mixed surface and challenging terrain. For even more aggressive capability, the S-Works Diverge is fitted with an X-Fusion Manic dropper post.

  • With a FACT 11r carbon frame, the S-Works Diverge frame weighs less than 1000grams (56cm), making its incredible capability race bike light. Pin it for your local dirt climb KOM, or grind up a giant back country peak, the light and lively Diverge will get you there faster.
  • Speed, control and confidence - Future Shock 2.0 is the ultimate technology for the gravel rider. With 20mm of axial compliance and a hydraulic damper, Future Shock 2.0 suspends the rider not the bike. This keeps you confident and in control, able to keep the power down and stay off the brakes over rough dirt roads and in thick loose gravel, all while keeping your hands, arms and neck fresh. Since Future Shock 2.0’s damper is adjustable, you’ll be ready for the rough stuff and efficient on smooth pavement.
  • Specialized tossed gravel geometry ‘status-quo’ out the window. The new Diverge has the most progressive geometry we’ve ever created for a drop bar bike, giving riders a capable and stable bike in the dirt, that still feels responsive and nimble on the road. Specialized have increased the frame’s reach, introduced a slacker head tube and a longer offset fork. All this creates incredible confidence with a planted feeling in the dirt, while spec’ing shorter stems keeps the overall cockpit length the same and the steering lively. They’ve kept the bike’s BB low to increase stability, but high enough to utilize with 650b wheels if that’s your jam.
  • Specialized have given the Diverge plenty of rack mounts, including fork and top tube mounts, to ensure you can take what you need, no matter how far you plan to go, or how long you plan to stay out.
  • Nothing unlocks a bike’s capability like tire clearance, so Specialized gave the new Diverge a whopping 47mm of tire clearance with a 700c wheel and 2.1” with a 650b wheel. Thanks to a drive side chain stay utilizing a solid beam of carbon behind the chain rings we’ve created clearance without using a fragile dropped chain stay design or increasing chain stay length.
  • The more capable your bike, the bigger your rides get, so Diverge borrows SWAT internal storage from the legendary Stumpy. The SWAT door lets you utilize space in the down tube to store tools, a flat kit, nutrition and even our SWAT Jacket. It keeps weight off your body, low in the bike for better handling, and makes you more self-sufficient, so get out there. SWAT’s got your back.
