Specialized Diverge Sport Carbon Womens All Road Bike 2019 – Gloss Teal Tint/Acid Mint/Black
With the Women's Diverge Sport you'll be prepared for anything the road throws at you from smooth tarmac to the most chewed-up tracks out there.
It's packed with all the same technologies as its pricier cousins only its spec places an emphasis on reliable performance not components so flashy you'll be eating nothing but top ramen for months.
The Diverge is more capable than ever.
And with the constant goal to best meet your needs we took your number one request into account—tyre clearance.
The new frame will comfortably fit up to 700x42mm or 650b x 47mm tyres with plenty of room for mud too.
Along with tyre clearance weight was a large factor in the development and taking some design cues from the development of the Roubaix we developed a FACT 9r carbon frame that’s one of the lightest in its category.
Next up we moved away from a traditional ‘cross geometry instead opting for something that hasn’t 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.
The geo features a bottom bracket that's over a half-centimetre lower than the previous 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 also performs 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 wider tyres 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 found on the Roubaix 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.
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 shifted crisply and braked smoothly for years to come so you'll find a Shimano 105 groupset hydraulic disc brakes and an DT R470 Disc wheelset.
Every touchpoint of the bike is also tailored specifically for women from the handlebar width to the crankarm length to the renowned Myth Sport saddle.
The FACT 9r carbon frame features our adventure-bound Open Road Geometry Future Shock Progressive suspension with 20mm of travel and front/rear thru-axles making it the ultimate tool for your next adventure.
The lightweight FACT carbon fork is plenty stiff aiding in handling stiffness and an overall light weight.
700x38mm Sawtooth Sport tyres with their sharp-edged tread pattern hook up in the loose dirt but keep rolling resistance as low as possible for on-road riding.
