Hop on the dirt path down the street cruise through town to your favorite café or go on a proper overnight adventure ride - whatever your plans may be the Diverge is here to let you do what you want.

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 700x42mm (or 650b x 47mm) 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 a FACT 9r carbon frame that’s one of the lightest in its category.

Next up we moved away from a traditional ‘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.

And 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 we implemented a new version of our 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 (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 we topped it off with three water bottle mounts plus mounts for racks and fenders. So while it’s one of the most smile-inducing bikes you’ll ever shred fire roads on it’s equally adept at bikepacking commuting or even a spin to your local brewery. For the spec we've made sure to add components that are not only durable but will perform over the long run - Shimano Tiagra shifting paired with hydraulic disc brakes 700x38mm Sawtooth tyres and durable Axis Sport Disc wheels.
