Specialized’s new Diverge STR brings rear suspension to gravel racing

Specialized has today unveiled its newest iteration of the brand’s longstanding gravel stalwart, the Diverge STR, which showcases Specialized’s first foray into rear suspension outside mountain bikes.

The Diverge STR features the brand new Rear Future Shock, which offers 30mm of travel accompanied by hydraulic damping – but at a total weight cost of less than 100g for the overall frame.

The STR’s suspension system will be striking to many, with its exposed metallic damper and alloy tendon attaching it to the seatpost, but Specialized assures us that the exposed components couldn’t be more robust.
