First Ride! Specialized Stumpjumper 2016

Specialized Stumpjumper 2016
 
WHAT IS NEW?
 
Trail riding encompasses all the sweet spots of mountain biking. Getting outdoors, climbing with friends, and descending amazing trails that make you want to grin from ear to ear. We've lived the trail riding life since 1981, and the feeling we found with our first Stumpjumper has never been lost. We are proud and excited to continue the legend with the new Stumpjumper FSR, along with a new trail bike for women, the Rhyme.
 
HANDLING
 
 
Trail bikes have to do it all, and do it all well. Equally focused on climbing prowess and descending capability, the Stumpjumper FSR & Rhyme are scared of nothing.

Geometry

  • Built from the ground up for 650b or 29” wheels
  • Slacker head tube @ 67/68° and 150/135mm travel (650b/29” details)
  • Shorter chainstays @ 420/437mm
  • Same low bottom bracket height @ 335mm
 

 

EFFICIENCY
 
Pedalling & control are still paramount to trail riding. We make sure that every bit of energy from your legs will push the bike to the top, while making sure that the descents are as fun as ever.
 
FSR – Our fully active, fully independent linkage keeps the suspension moving at all times, so your tyre stays in contact with the trail. We further refined FSR for all-around trail performance.
 
Rx Tune – we take shock tuning to a heightened level of detail. Working with our shock partners, every rear shock volume, compression, and rebound range has been meticulously tuned specifically for the Stumpjumper FSR & Rhyme—no matter if it’s an S-Works or a Comp.
 

 

UTILITY
 
It’s more important than ever to be prepared for what the trail will dish out. Most of the time, it comes down to the performance of the bike, but other times, it's what you brought along to fix your bike. We first introduced SWAT on the Epic, and now we've adapted the concept of being prepared for the trail with the revolutionary SWAT Door (carbon models). On the down tube, the SWAT Door unhinges so you can store what you need inside the Trail Chassis.
