If you like gravel, you are going to love the 2019 Specialized Diverge!!
Fastest growing sport in the bike world, great fun away from traffic and out in open spaces in the countryside. We have been riding gravel bikes for many years but as it's a growing sport the manufactures are investing more money on technology. The 2019 Specialized Diverge is at the top of the Gravel game, in fact we would say this is the 'Game Changer'
Future Shock technology which absorbs shock from the terrain and improves ride quality. Designed as a short travel shock absorbing system it's simply awesome. The range starts with an aluminium model at £799.99 which is a rigid front end but with a larger tyre and less pressure, it gives a great ride. Its when you hit the slightly higher alloy models from £1500.00 or the carbon models that the Future Shock System comes into play.
Rider feedback is overwhelming, they handle really well off and on-road and as we touched on earlier the larger tyre size makes for a great ride. Alloy models start from £799.99 with carbon ones starting at £2000.00 and as you move up the models the spec gets very exciting with carbon wheels and chainsets. Wheel size is 700c with bolt through axles making the machine stiff and rigid where needed. Proving a popular upgrade is a second pair of wheels for when you you hit the rough tracks, 650b wheels are the best choice with a 38mm tyre which is capable of taking you anywhere.
