One bike that shreds gravel and dirt and crushes through road miles with equal expertise. To do this, the Diverge features plenty of compliance, huge tire clearance, inventive geometry and an impressive weight figure.
Most significantly, the company’s Future Shock has been incorporated into the front end of the bike while the Zertz elastomers have been abandoned for all but the seatpost. Tire clearance has been increased and new frame geometry provides extra stack, shorter reach, and a lower bottom bracket. All told, the result is arguably more comfortable and versatile than its predecessor, which should strengthen the appeal of the Diverge.
