Made for exploring new roads commuting to class and everything in between the Diverge E5 Elite redefines how many functions one bike can fulfill.
The Diverge is more capable than ever. And with the constant goal to best meet your needs we 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 we developed an E5 Premium aluminium frame that's plenty light certainly stiff for hard efforts and undeniable tough.
Next up we moved away from a traditional â€˜cross geometry instead opting for something that hasn't been seen before - our 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.
Adding to its multifaceted talents we topped it off with three water bottle mounts plus mounts for racks and fenders. For the spec we wanted to make sure that it shifted crisply and braked smoothly for a long time to come so you'll find a reliable Shimano Tiagra groupset hassle-free mechanical disc brakes and an Axis Sport Disc wheelset that's been cased in our Espoir Sport Reflect tyres.
