Specialized has designed the all-new Stumpjumper Evo Comp using their lightweight and reliable FACT 11m carbon frame, the very same base that features on their S-Works model, offering a strong and nimble base that's ready to tackle the trails. This time around, Specialized turned their priority focus to kinematics rather than travel, after all, without high-quality shock tuning, you can have all the travel possible but it still wouldn't allow to you optimize riding efficiency. That's why Specialized spent more than 1,000 hours researching and designing the perfect pedal performance for more responsive handling as well as an improved suspension set-up for increased anti-squat and more resistance to pedal bob. Overall, this new design combination creates a smoother, more effortless ride that tears up the trails instead of leaving your legs in pieces the next day. The new Stumpjumper Evo Comp also features Specialized's most progressive geometry to date with a longer, lower, slacker, and shorter offset fork as well as a steeper seat tube angle in order to create a more lively handling feel. But if this isn't for you, this time around Specialized has created the BB height to be adjustable by up to 10mm so you can find the right fit for you rather than a 'one-size fit's all' approach. To really mix things up, Specialized has allowed you to pair a 27.5" rear wheel with a 29" front on the brand-new Evo. Equipped with a bullet-proof Shimano SLX 12-speed drivetrain you're provided with smooth shifting out on the trails that you know you can rely on all-year-round thanks to it's 'tough as nails' design and lay-up. Finally, to ensure your off-road adventure can be as breezy as possible, Specialized fitted their SWAT™ door into the Stumpjumper's frame, allowing you to store all of your riding necessities with ease so you're well prepared for those 'oh sugar...' moments without having to stuff it all into your jersey. The Stumpjumper Evo even features a SWAT™ Bladder, providing an additional 22oz space for water storage to make sure nothing catches you out no matter the weather.
Shreds trails, not legs
All the travel in the world is useless without the proper shock tuning and kinematics. For the new Stumpjumper EVO design, Specialized prioritized kinematic performance. Applying lessons learned while developing the Enduro, then following that with more than 1,000 hours of field and suspension lab development, Specialized has not only improved the pedaling performance of the Stumpjumper, but they’ve made it more capable, agile, and lively. Specialized increased anti-squat, so the suspension better resists pedal bob and Specialized further improved bump performance on square-edge hits. Bottom line? This thing shreds trails, not legs.
Geometry & Sizing
The S-Sizing geometry of the new Stumpjumper EVO is Specialized's most progressive yet. Long, low, slack, short offset fork, steeper seat tube angle – these are requirements for modern progressive riding. But not everyone jibs the same way, which is why the geo on the new Stumpjumper EVO is fully adjustable with six different settings. You can adjust the BB height by 10mm, you can adjust your head angle by two-degrees, and you can make these adjustments independently of each other. Finally, if you want to go full-party mullet-mode, the EVO lets you run a 27.5-inch rear wheel mated with a 29-inch front.
Practical & Reliable
Rider-First Engineered™ frames use a size-specific approach to ride characteristics that ensure benchmark handling and flawless performance, regardless of frame or rider size. Whether you’re a jump-happy grom riding an S1, or a DH-fiend giant in need of the lengthy S6, you’ll experience the same ride traits – rail-sharp cornering and balanced front and rear stiffness – at the lightest possible weight. Specialized introduced the SWAT™ door on the Stumpjumper in 2016, adding room IN your frame for those “oh sugar” necessities like pumps and spare tubes, and immediately rendering jersey pockets redundant. With the new Stumpjumper, Specialized have increased the volume and added a SWAT™ Bladder, giving you an extra 22oz of water storage – the same size as a small water bottle – hidden in your downtube.
