£5750 – Specialized Stumpjumper EVO Expert Carbon 29er Mountain Bike 2023 S2 – Satin Obsidian/Dune White
Total control unparalleled bump-eating suspension and a fine-tunable geometry are hallmarks of the all-new Stumpjumper EVO Expert. Top it off with a build that blends quality affordability and durability and it’s the perfect trail partner no matter where those trails are or how rowdy they get. All the travel in the world is useless without the proper shock tuning and kinematics. For the new Stumpjumper EVO design we 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 we’ve not only improved the pedaling performance of the Stumpjumper but we’ve made it more capable agile and lively. We increased anti-squat so the suspension better resists pedal bob and we further improved bump performance on square-edge hits. Bottom line? This thing shreds trails not legs. The S-Sizing geometry of the new Stumpjumper EVO is our 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. Rider-First Engineered™ frames use a size-specific approach to ride characteristics that ensures 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. We introduced the SWAT™ door on the Stumpjumper in 2016 adding room IN your frame for those “oh sh**t” necessities like pumps and spare tubes and immediately rendering jersey pockets redundant. With the new Stumpjumper we 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.
