Specialized's Diverge Expert X1 can handle flying on the tarmac all day long, but it really comes to life when the adventure of leaving the pavement comes in. The light, responsive FACT 10r carbon frame boasts plenty of tire clearance for the lightweight Axis 4.0 wheels shod in 700x30/32c Specialized Roubaix Pro tires. They let you float over rough roads and poorly maintained gravel. As does the 1x11-speed SRAM Force 1 drivetrain with the ideal gear range and low weight, less parts, and locked-on chain management. For long-ride comfort, the Diverge also includes a Ti-railed 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.

Specialized believes that at the heart of every rider is an adventurer, ready to seek out new roads, regardless of whether they're paved or not. And for this reason, they created a bike that's built to handle anything. The Sequoia Expert eliminates the need to choose from a dedicated touring rig or a road bike, instead combining the two in a single, genre-shattering bike. The Sequoia's path to adventure starts at the frame, which they constructed from Premium Cr-Mo tubing. This material is coveted for its strength, light weight, and tuned ride quality. Paired to the frame is a beefy FACT carbon fiber fork that is sure to take the sting out of harsh roads. And when you're deep into said roads, you'll be thankful for the extra water bottle mount found on its fork leg. You'll find an ample wheelbase and low bottom bracket for control, but the chainstays and tube angles ensure that you'll be able to travel efficiently and quickly, regardless of whether or not your rig is loaded. Digging into the details, the frame is outfitted with an ample number of mounts for water, racks, and fenders. And for the build, they included reliable parts, like a SRAM Force 1 groupset, powerful hydraulic disc brakes, and hand-built Cruzero wheels that are cased in wide, 2Bliss Ready tires.
