While the fun may begin where the road ends, you still need a bike that'll get you there-one bike that shreds singletrack and crushes through road miles with equal expertise. "Adventure-ready," but we just made one bike that makes no compromises between the two. The S-Works Diverge frameset the possibilities for adventure on a drop-bar-bike, and it's eager to be the foundation for your dream build.
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 (or 650b x 47mm) tires. Along with tire clearance, weight in the development and in the design of some of the Roubaix's development, we created a sub-900 gram FACT 11r carbon frame that's one of the lightest in the category. Actually, that's pretty damn light, even if your intent was more polka dot jersey than hunter's plaid flannel.
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 only fun in the dirt, but one that also performs well on the road.
And while riding gravel and dirt roads on a road bike may add to the adventure, there's just so much that can not be absorbed with lower pressures. Shock into the Diverge design. It's not just soaks up bumps with ease, but it 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. More simply: 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.
SWAT ™ kit that fits a tube, CO2, CO2 head, valve extender, and money clip, as well as our legendary CG-R FACT carbon seatpost. So while it's one of the most smile-inducing bikes you'll ever ride, it's equally adept at commuting or even bikepacking.
