While the real fun starts where the road ends, you still need a bike that'll get you thereâ€”one bike that shreds flowy singletrack, gravel, & traditional roads with equal authority. A more capable road bike wonâ€™t cut it, nor will a more road-worthy 'cross bike for that matter. No, you need a dedicated gravel bike like the Diverge. First & foremost, it's fun & always down for a good time, but with a progressively-tuned Future Shock, our fast & stable Open Road Geometry, & plenty of tire clearance, it redefines the possibilities for adventure on a drop-bar bike.
This Diverge delivers a tremendous value for anyone whoâ€™s gravel-curious. We specâ€™d it with SRAM's Apex 1x11 group for its crisp shifts & powerful hydraulic disc brakes, as well as reliable Axis Sport Disc wheels, a Praxis Alba crankset, 38mm Pathfinder Sport tires, & our fan-favorite Power Sport saddle.
