Specialized announce new Diverge and Allez

Today Specialized announced a new Diverge and Allez.


The Diverge takes a new approach to the road, gravel, and adventure genre with the implementation of Future Shock technology and dropper seat post compatibility with the added practicality of a SWAT box.


The Allez's alloy frame has taken more inspiration from the Tarmac design and in the process shaved some significant weight.


For more information on both these bikes, check out the design highlights below.
