If you're like us the last thing that you want is your bike holding you back from having the ride of your life. If you see rough roads or flowy singletrack we want you to ride it not think that looks fun but i can't do it on this bike. we're tyred of our fun being restricted and that's why we developed the new Diverge Expert x1. Now you can get out there and not only explore new roads but entyrely new rideswe promise that the bike wont be a limiting factor.

The Diverge is more capable than ever. And with the constant goal to best meet your needs we took your number one request into accounttyre 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 thats one of the lightest in its category.

Next up we moved away from a traditional cross geometry instead opting for something that hasnt been seen beforeour 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 theres 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 isnt 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 wont 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.

To add to its multifaceted talents we topped it off with three water bottle mounts mounts for racks and fenders and our road SWAT kit that fits a tube co2 co2 head valve extender and money clip. So while its one of the most smile-inducing bikes youll ever ride its equally adept at commuting or even bikepacking. And for the spec we made a no-compromise build with a full SRAM force 1 groupset with hydraulic disc brakes Roval c38 carbon wheels and fast-rolling 700x38mm sawtooth tyres.

  • 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.
  • Yep, that's rightcarbon wheels on an expert-level bike. The Roval c38 disc carbon wheels bring performance to the masses. They're lightweight, durable, and ready for your next adventure.

You Pre-Order is prioritised (at no additional charge); meaning that, as soon as the product arrives with us, we can wrap it straight back up and get it sent out to you - it often never even hits the stock room shelves!


With Pre-Launch, the date when we expect to receive the product ourselves is still a little too hazy to be confident in accepting Pre-Orders.

So, instead, you can submit your email address against the item you are interested in and we will email you as soon as stock arrives on the system.
