      Specialized unveiled the all-new range of the Diverge gravel bike series.

      The Diverge series of bike is ready to cater to every segment of gravel lover, with prices starting at 1100 USD and going up all the way to 10000 USD.

      Key changes made in the new Diverge(s) are:

      Future Shock 2.0 on select models. Revised Geometry. Increased Tyre Clearance. Gravel bike with a Flat Bar.

      The Future Shock 2.0 is an adjustable coil suspension cartridge in the fork steerer as visible in the image below. The purpose of it is to smooth out rough roads rather than tackling proper MTB terrain. The cheaper models in the range are equipped with Future Shock 1.5. The cheapest just transfer the shock to the riders hands like a normal bike!

      Geometry of the Diverge is said to be inspired from the company’s hardtail XC bike, Epic.

      The bike can now handle 700c tyres all the way to 47 mm with room to spare and 42 mm with mudguards. 650b 2.1 inch tyres can also be slapped onto this new frame.

      The Diverge Evo is a flat handlebar gravel bike. Which gets terribly confusing as what differentiates it from a dirt oriented hybrid!

      Cycle categories are getting blurred as the waters are getting muddied or in this case the gravel is getting muddied…
