2016 Specialized Diverge Elite DSW

Split your rides from the pavement on Specialized's Diverge Elite DSW. The light, responsive aluminum frame uses D'Alusion Smartweld Technology to increase stiffness and efficiency while retaining low weight and wonderful compliance. Adding to that, the Diverge features oodles of tire clearance, rolling on 700x30c Specialized Espoir tires that float over rough roads and gravel. The 20-speed Shimano Tiagra drivetrain provides dependable shifting, and the Tektro Spyre mechanical disc brakes delivers solid stopping power. For long-ride comfort, the Diverge also includes a Body Geometry Toupe saddle and gel-padded bar tape to make every ride, whether on pavement or miles from any hard surface, brilliant.

    First time I have ever spent more than $300 on a bike and well worth it! Such a comfortable and smooth ride, except on bumpy roads, but what do you expect? Using it for fun and a few 30+ mile road trips.

    Comments:

    I ride 7 miles each way to work. Great ride, love the Tiagra groupset. After 3 weeks I changed the tires to more flat resistant ones. This big question is this: "Is it worth the extra money to step up from the A1?" The answer is a resounding yes! I think the difference in the ride is night and day. Believe it or not, I think it actually feels better than the 2 carbon-frame models I rode.

    Comments:

    Love my new Diverge DSW Elite, definitely worth the extra few bucks over the A1's. Two flats in first 30 miles... Suspect the tires need an upgrade to Kevlar belted, but that is all I could fault with it.
