Specialized Stumpjumper FSR Expert Carbon EVO 29
This item is currently not available.


With its FACT carbon mainframe, trail-dominating components and 140/135mm of travel front and rear, Specialized's FSR Expert Carbon EVO is the real deal. Everywhere you roll, the active FSR suspension with Fox Float CTD shock keeps your rear wheel glued to the trail on technical climbs and gnarly descents. Up front, a tapered head tube and RockShox Pike 29 fork give you the confidence to charge the hard line then drag the bars after throwing it deep into a corner. Component wise, there's a 1x11 SRAM drivetrain that clicks through gears even when mashing the carbon cranks, while the Avid Elixir 7 Trail discs provide tons of stopping power with precise modulation. Plus, the Roval 29-inch wheels are wide yet light, the Specialized tubeless-ready tires grip hard in all conditions and the Command Post dropper post lets you keep your flow.

Specialized's FACT (Functional Advanced Composite Technology) carbon frames and components are made from the finest materials and utilize a unique manufacturing process that creates amazing durability, awesome efficiency and super-low weight.

The bike is incredibly light handling, and comes with an attached toolkit and chainbreaker. I would categorize it as 90% of the world's best all mountain bike at 60% of the price, or, "near perfection". That is a pretty good compromise. The front suspension is absolutely perfect, even on tough downhills with jumps, the approximately twelve compression settings are easy to adjust on the fly and ensure it will not bottom out. The forks are incredibly smooth, and combined with a carbon fiber mainframe, its so much fun I am going to have to wear goggles I am riding down so fast now and I otherwise can no longer see from the tearing. The rear suspension despite the Kashima is not as good as the front, but because on downhills all the weight goes to the front, that does not matter that much. The front double piston brake is so strong I feel I can alter the rotation of the Earth when I hit it hard. The X01 1x10 SRAM shifter system works really well, and with two thumb pushes puts you back on gear 1 from anywhere on the cassette. My first negative is that on steep climbs I wish it was geared 2 cogs lower that gear 1. I am getting the Wolftooth 26T front chainring (originally had a 32T) to see if that helps with lowering the gearing for the extremely steep climbs I do. I ride very technical trails and have probably never made it to gears 9 and 10 anyway. Second con is the seat is a little stiff and I will be getting a softer one as well. Finally, I am not sure where to get a bashplate protector for the bottom of the frame but I am being careful in the rocks in the meantime. Other than that, the bike is simple, light, with world-class components, can take almost anything on the downhills, and is a dream to ride. My take is that it has the quality to do 80% of what a downhill bike can do, but with 20% of the weight, which is phenomenal.
