The new 2018 Diverge is a high-performance off-road road bike. It has been redesigned to be more of an adventure bike than a Roubaix, but more of a road bike than a Sequoia. It’s made for commuting, exploring and everything in between. Designed from the bottom-up to be a fully-fledged exploration machine with a completely redesigned frame, the new Diverge is more capable than ever before.
The Diverge comes with a new version of the Future Shock that features a progressive spring. This makes the Future Shock more suitable for off-road applications where it's necessary to absorb larger bumps and rougher terrain. Check out our video of the Roubaix's Future Shock in action.
The Diverge gets a more stabile Open Road geometry good for gravel and rough roads. With a bottom bracket that's over a half centimeter lower, a slacker head angle, shorter chainstays and shorter wheelbase, the new Diverge is not only fun in the gravel, but also performs well on the road.
More tyre clearance
The new frame will comfortably fit up to 700x42 or 650bx47 tyres, giving the rider the versatility to setup the bike for different rides. Commute on it, cyclocross it, ride brevets, whatever you want!
With thru-axles at both ends, flat-mounted disc brakes, Plug-and-Play fender mounts, rack mounts, SWAT box and dropper post capability, the new Diverge is up-to-date on all modern frame design. And, the new FACT 9r carbon frame is one of the lightest in the category.
