Diverge E5 2018 Adventure Road Bike (Ex-Demo / Ex-Display). This Specialized is ex-demo and has been ridden very briefly, so it needs a bit of a clean up particularly underneath and it has some slight wear and signs of very light usage in all areas, but particularly to the drive train, brakes / pads / rotors, saddle and hoods / bar tapes. It has some very light cosmetic damage from usage, transit and storage, please see images. Pedals and other additional accessories are only included where pictured and all bikes are individually photographed, so please rely on the images in the event of any discrepancy between the spec shown in the product details and the photos. Please contact us https://www.evanscycles.com/help/contact-us or one of our stores https://www.evanscycles.com/store-finder if you have any questions.
The Diverge E5 is equipped with everything you need to head to work, take the long way home, and hit some fire roads on the weekend. With a completely redesigned frame, the new Diverge is more capable than ever. And with the constant goal to best meet your needs, we took your number one request into account—tire clearance. The new frame will comfortably fit up to 700x42mm tires with plenty of room for mud, too. Along with tire 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 durable.
While riding gravel and dirt roads on a road bike may add to the adventure, there’s only so much that wider tires 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, 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.
