The Diverge Comp has been designed to be a through-and-through exploration machine. It's just adept at crushing dirt climbs as it is cruising to the coffee shop or hopping into a local group ride. And while it might sound cliché in a landscape of bike claims chocked full with hyperbole, the Diverge Comp truly is one bike that does it all.
The Diverge is more capable than ever. And with the constant goal to meet your needs, we took your number one request into account-tire clearance. The new frame will comfortably fit up to 700x42mm tires or 650b x 47mm tires. Along with tire clearance, which is one of the lightest in its development, we have developed a FACT 9r carbon frame that is one of the lightest in its category.
Next up, we moved away from a traditional 'cross geometry', opting for something that has not 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. Diverge, a slacked-out head tube angle, short chainstays, and a short wheelbase. These changes make for a bike that's not just fun in the dirt, but so does 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 can be resisted with lower pressures, in terms of bumps. Shock into the Diverge design. It is not just soaks up bumps with ease, but adds the benefit of extremely predictable handling. That's because the wheelbase is not 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 into a turn, you will not 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 for 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. For the spec, we wanted to make sure that it shifts crisply and braked smoothly after mile, so you'll find a Shimano Ultegra groupset, Shimano hydraulic disc brakes, and a DT R470 Disc wheelset.
