In my mind, instant classics include Nacho Libre, Fletch, Elf and maybe, just maybe the launch video for the 2019 Specialized Stumpjumper. It’s that good. Well done, Big S for not taking yourselves too seriously while still dishing out the details on this all-new trail stomper.
The new 2019 Stumpjumper is offered in a plethora of flavors to suit your tastes:
- Stumpjumper ST 27.5/29
- Stumpjumper 27.5/29
- Stumpjumper EVO 27.5/29 (details coming soon)
Specialized has a Stumpjumper for whatever purpose suits your type of riding. The ST (Short Travel) delivers 130/130mm suspension in 27.5 and 130/120mm in 29-inch flavors. Heading up to the Stumpjumper, you’ll get 150/150mm in 27.5 and 140/150mm in 29-inch models. The EVO models are still forthcoming, but should have even more travel for an enduro flare.
And, those on a budget will still appreciate the alloy version of the Stumpjumper.
Overall, the new Stumpjumper features a unique frame design called Sidearm, which is similar to the Orbea Rallon, actually. The extra frame section stiffens up the chassis — particularly around the shock mounts.
Other key features include:
- Clearance for 3.0 tires in both 27.5 and 29-inch versions
- Standard shock sizes for easy aftermarket or customizations
- Flip Chip adjustable geometry
- Rx Tune for both men and women
- Optimized FSR with better kinematics
- Rider First Engineered across all sizes
- Threaded BB (woot!)
We’ll see it first-hand at the 2018 Sea Otter Classic, so stay tuned for more photos and details.
