Specialized's AWOL Elite has everything you need to get out and explore. This tough-as-nails adventure bike features a chromoly frame and fork for durability and exceptional ride quality. Equipped with both front and rear rack eyelets, three sets of bottle cage bosses, and full-length cable housing routing, the AWOL Elite does double duty as a fully loaded touring rig and a heavy duty commuter. Sturdy Specialized wheels with grippy 42mm-wide tires make the bike all-terrain capable, and a pair of Tektro Spyre disc brakes provide great stopping power, no matter the conditions. Touring must-haves like a burly Tubus front and rear racks and sturdy aluminum fenders are a part of the deal. A wide-range, 20-speed Shimano Tiagra has the gears you need to conquer any hill, while a selection of Body Geometry components keep you comfortable for miles.
Do the math. There's a lot more of the world that's unpaved than there is perfect tarmac. The answer? The Diverge Sport A1 from Specialized, a full capable street, dirt road, gravel path, anywhere-you-want-to-ride exploration machine. Specialized A1 aluminum makes for a light, fast frame and a FACT carbon fork soaks up the road chatter out front. Some days it feels like you can't find a flat bit of ground to pedal across, and that's when Shimano's 18-speed Sora drivetrain shines. Hills, flats, and descents, it has the quick-shifting, wide gear range performance it takes to conquer any and all roads, while a pair of Tektro disc brakes put the stops to the fun when needed. And a full selection of Specialized components, including a supportive Body Geometry saddle, check the final boxes.
No pavement? No problem. Specialized's Diverge Comp takes less-than-ideal surfaces and turns them into an ideal ride. It features a light, responsive FACT 10r carbon frame and plenty of tire clearance. The Diverge rolls on lightweight Axis 4.0 wheels and 700 x 30/32c Specialized Roubaix tires, so you'll float over rough roads and gravel. The 22-speed Shimano 105 drivetrain provides dependable shifting, and the integrated Shimano hydraulic disc brakes delivers solid stopping power. For long-ride comfort, the Diverge also includes a Body Geometry Phenom saddle, gel padded bar tape, and Specialized's CG-R carbon seatpost to make every mile feel just as good as the first.
The blazing sun of the plains beats down on the Flint Hills of Kansas. From the start, ten miles out to the top of Road D Hill, you can look back and see a long line of hopefuls consigning themselves to a punishing tour of the worst roads Kansas has to offer. But you know that the FACT 10r carbon frame and fork of the Diverge Pro combine the lightweight speed, handling, and compliance of Specialized's top road machines with off-road touches, like vibration-damping Zertz and massive tire clearance, to make taming your favorite stretch of terrible tarmac a breeze. Roval Control SCS wheels accelerate like you know carbon hoops should, and when paired with high-volume Roubaix Pro tires there's not a patch of chip seal or gravel road in the world that you can't handle. And would you expect anything less than Shimano's lauded Dura-Ace on a pro-level ride? Shimano's flagship road drivetrain provides the smooth, near-telepathic shifts that have defined the gruppo since its inception. Plus, braking is handled just as admirably with Shimano hydraulic disc brakes. Cockpit components and ergonometrics are handled by Specialized's own Body Geometry components, featuring a Ti-railed Phenom saddle and FACT carbon CG-R seatpost to smooth out the path forward.
