Diverge E5 Elite

Diverge E5 Elite

Description

While the real fun starts where the road ends, you still need a bike that'll get you there—one bike that shreds flowy singletrack, gravel, and traditional roads with equal authority. A more capable road bike won’t cut it, nor will a more road-worthy 'cross bike for that matter. No, you need a dedicated gravel bike like the Diverge. First and foremost, it's fun and always down for a good time, but with our fast and stable Open Road Geometry and plenty of tire clearance, it redefines the possibilities for adventure on a drop-bar bike.

You got places to be and rides to crush, so we gave your Diverge an undeniable spec that strikes the perfect balance of tough and awesome. After all, we your Elite E5 to ride comfortably, shift crisply, and brake smoothly for years to come, and that meant adding a Shimano Tiagra 10-speed groupset, powerful hydraulic disc brakes, our fan-favorite Power Sport Saddle, and a durable Axis Sport Disc wheelset that's been cased in our fast-rolling, 35mm Roadsport tires with built-in flat protection.

  • The Diverge has everything you need for pretty much any pedal-powered adventure—whether it's gravel racing, bikepacking, or weekend shredding. Our Premium E5 Aluminum frameset features our comfortable and confident Open Road Geometry, making it the ultimate tool for your next ride.
  • The full FACT carbon fiber fork keeps overall weight low and takes the sting out of road imperfections with ease.
  • You can think of the Diverge's geometry as a road version of a modern trail bike. It provides playful handling and predictable steering for endless dirt skids and mid-corner drifts, but keeps stiffness up to snuff for your inner-racer. Along with a bottom bracket that's over a half-centimeter lower than the previous Diverge, we also slacked-out the head tube angle, shortened the chainstays, and made a shorter wheelbase. The result? A bike that performs equally well over both the dirt and road.
