With a completely redesigned frame the new Diverge is more capable than ever. And with the constant goal to best meet riders needs it now has increased tyre clearance. The new frame will comfortably fit up to 42mm tyres with plenty of room for mud too. Along with tyre clearance weight was a large factor in the development and taking some design cues from the development of the Roubaix it has an E5 Premium Aluminium frame that�s plenty light certainly stiff for hard efforts and undeniable durable.
It has an entirely new geometry. With a touch less hyperbole you can think of it as a road version of modern trail bike geometry. It provides playful handling and predictable steering for endless dirt skids and mid corner drifts. The geometry features a bottom bracket that's over a half centimetre lower than the previous Diverge a slacked-out head tube angle short chainstays and a short wheelbase. These changes make for a bike that's not only fun in the dirt but also performs well on the road.
And while riding gravel and dirt roads on a road bike may add to the adventure there�s only so much that wider tires with lower pressures can absorb in terms of bumps. With this in mind we implemented a new version of our Future Shock into the Diverge design.
