Specialized StumpJumper Comp Carbon
Don’t worry, S-Works doesn’t get to have all of the fun—the new Stumpjumper Comp Carbon 29 features the same frame as the S-Works, with a full 11m carbon chassis and rear-end. Only here, we’ve included a solid list of no-fuss components, including a SRAM NX Eagle 12-speed groupset for the everyman’s budget. Our design goal for the new Stumpjumper was simple—build the ultimate trail bike, one that feels telepathic. And it turns out that this feeling all comes down to stiffness. Think of it this way: when the frame’s telling your hands one thing and your feet another, your brain gets confused with the imbalance and the bike feels unstable. In order to fix this, we had to get to work on dialing-in the materials, shapes, and the layout.
