Ex-Demo: Specialized Diverge E5 Comp Mens Road Bike - 52cm Information

Season : 2019

Brand : Specialized

Code : 95419-5452 DEMO

As this is not a brand new bike, it may not feature the full original technical specification and is subject to change.

Redefining what a road bike can do, the Diverge E5 Comp takes you wherever you want to go, whether you're exploring or commuting to work.

While some bicycles work well as a road bike and a 'cross bike, others are good at commuting and some for short road riding. Until the Diverge, nothing out there was astute at every kind of riding subject.

The Diverge is more capable than ever. With the constant goal to best meet your needs, Specialized took your number one request into account - tyre clearance. The new frame will comfortably fit up to 700x38mm 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, an E5 Premium aluminium frame was developed that’s plenty light, certainly stiff for hard efforts, and undeniable tough.

Next up, Specialized moved away from a traditional ‘cross geometry, instead opting for something that hasn’t been seen before - Open Road Geometry. 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 geo 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.

While riding gravel and dirt roads on a road bike may add to the adventure, there’s only so much that wider tyres with lower pressures can absorb, in terms of bumps. With this in mind, a new version of Future Shock was implemented into the Diverge design. It not only soaks up bumps with ease, but also adds the benefit of extremely predictable handling. That's because the wheelbase isn’t lengthening when you hit a bump, so the front end of the Diverge keeps the same effective head tube angle. In other words, when you dive hard into a turn, you won’t be surprised by under-steer or sloppy handling. Unlike the original Future Shock (found on the Roubaix), the Diverge's version features a progressive spring that makes this technology more suitable for off-road applications, where stiffer suspension is often needed to soak-up larger bumps and obstacles.

Adding to its multifaceted talents, the Diverge is topped off with three water bottle mounts, plus mounts for racks and mudguards. For the spec, Specialized wanted to make sure that it shifted crisply and braked smoothly mile after mile, so you'll find a crisp and reliable Shimano 105 groupset, hassle-free Tektro Spyre mechanical disc brakes, and an Axis Sport Disc wheelset.

  • This Premium E5 aluminium frameset features a comfortable and confident Open Road Geometry, Future Shock Progressive suspension with 20mm of travel, and front/rear thru-axles, making it the ultimate tool for your next adventure.
  • The lightweight FACT carbon fork is plenty stiff, aiding in handling and a light overall weight.
  • With Shimano 105 taking the reins on shifting, you'll experience crisp shifts for years to come.
