Nowadays, there are few bikes out there that can do it all. Sure there are some that work well as a road bike and a 'cross bike, while others can be used for commuting and some short road riding, but there's not one steed that can effectively perform all of the above. That is until the Women's Diverge E5 Comp came about—made for exploring new roads, commuting to class, and everything in between, it redefines what a road bike can do.

With a completely redesigned frame, the new Diverge is more capable than ever. And with the constant goal to best meet your needs, Specialized took your number one request into account—tire clearance. The new frame will comfortably fit up to 700x38mm tires with plenty of room for mud, too. Along with tire clearance, weight was a large factor in the development, and taking some design cues from the development of the Roubaix, they developed an E5 Premium Aluminum frame that's plenty light, certainly stiff for hard efforts, and undeniable durable.

Next up, Specialized moved away from a traditional 'cross geometry, instead opting for something that hasn't been seen before—Open Road Geometry. they know what you're thinking, "it's just another marketing term," but for the Diverge, they truly did develop 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 geo features a bottom bracket that's over a half-centimeter 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, Specialized implemented a new version of their Future Shock 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, 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, Specialized topped it off with three water bottle mounts, plus mounts for racks and fenders. For the spec, they 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 mechanical disc brakes, and an Axis Elite Disc wheelset. Every touchpoint of the bike is also tailored specifically for women, from the handlebar width to the crankarm length to the renowned Myth Sport saddle.

 

  • The E5 Premium Aluminum frame features their adventure-bound 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, rigidity, and an overall light weight.
  • Featuring a reflective sidewall, two layers of their BlackBelt flat protection, and a durable compound, the Espoir Sport tires are an appropriate addition to the Diverge's adventure-ready heritage.
