 Description

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—tire clearance. The new frame will comfortably fit up to  700x42mm tires or 650b x 47mm tires. 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 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-centimeter  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 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 (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 mile after mile, so you'll find a Shimano  Ultegra groupset, Shimano hydraulic disc brakes, and a DT R470 Disc  wheelset.

Features:  

  •     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 and a light overall weight.
  •     Shimano's no-fuss Ultegra shifting with hydraulic disc brakes provides precise shifting and plenty of stopping power.
