Specialized Stumpjumper

With the Evo stretching its muscles on the gnarly trails the Stumpjumper is free to spread its wings and fly free.

The Ultimate Trail Bike

The Stumpjumper has evolved a bit in the last 40 years and the two siblings in the family now cover the full spectrum of trail riding. The Stumpjumper featured here is all about finding your flow railing endless ribbons of singletrack while the instantly rowdy Stumpjumper EVO takes on the sketchier terrain.

More trail focused

We visited Specialized HQ to find out more about the new Stumpjumper and how it differs from the Stumpy EVO.

Singletrack Flow Finder

The new Stumpjumper combines the lightweight efficiency of a cross country bike with the handling and capability of a hardcore trail ripper. The result is a mountain bike that can climb and accelerate like it has a motor and descend with conviction as it tears through every trail condition.

Capability and Stability

With a long, low and slack geometry this lightweight mid travel 29” trail bike keeps things stable in the rough while the short chainstays give you that nimble, flickable feel. A steep seat tube angle optimizes your pedalling position for efficient climbing.

Trail Tuned Suspension

To make the most of the 130mm of rear wheel travel the Stumpjumper has a progressive leverage curve that ramps up at the end of the travel. This means you get plenty of small bump sensitivity with pedalling support in the mid stroke and great bottom out resistance.

No Lazy Carbon

The carbon Stumpjumper frame design has been refined to ensure that every fibre of the layup is used effectively. This means that at 2250g the frame (S4 including shock and hardware) is over 200grams lighter than last year’s bike.

Size to your Style

The Stumpjumper’s S-Sizing is based on what matters: rider size and style, not inseam. All sizes have similar headtube lengths and standover, so you can choose the size that best suits your individual riding style.

Power to all the People

While the carbon bikes may be the lightest, the alloy framed bikes deliver similarly outstanding on-the-trail performance. This is because the alloy bikes share the same geo, sizing and suspension tune to make that refined trail bike ride quality more affordable.

With six different models available and prices starting at just £1,900 the new Specialized Stumpjumper offers that ultimate trail bike performance to all riders.
