First Look: 2014 Specialized Stumpjumper - Big Wheels, More Fun

View as: Slideshow | One Page

Join us in Charmes, France, for the unveiling of Specialized's 2014 Trail line. We spent 3 days examining and riding the bikes, wheels and tires that make up this category of equipment. First up, the lowdown on the iconic classic, the Stumpjumper, and a brief look at a couple of new Roval wheels (be sure to also check out the 2014 Camber First Look feature here, and join us for ONE Lap to see the bikes in action).

The Stumpjumper has grown up over the years, and although it is still classified as a trail bike, it is designed for the riders who in addition to racking up the miles also want to air it out a bit and get rowdy along the way. By the numbers, it is very close to the Enduro of a generation or two ago, so we were not surprised to find that this bike rips (go EVO if you really want to open it up). Now hit the specs to get under the skin of this up-to-date icon:

    Oh, I just realized this was the Stumperjumper lineup, I was thinking it was the Enduro lineup. Hopefully they do the same with enduro.

    Thank god. They don't need to get into the me-too game. They're big enough that they can wait, research, develop, then surpass the competition. Their first 29ers sucked because they were hesitant about the market. Now their 29ers are the best. (Only one to win a WC.)

    Why? Never had a problem with it. Thus, it's awesome cable routing. Funny how things are relative.

    Loow cable routing like that reduces friction in the housing = better long lasting shift performance. its been proven. yes rocks hit them but its only a tiiinnnnny chance anything will damage them

    Had a 2012 EVO Stumpy think I gave it a good enough chance, rear disc cable cut, worst shifting bike ever, I can tune a derailluer better than most LBS, even ran gore cables to improve shifting, XO all round, Ive had allot of bikes run XO for years and this was worst ever, that and Cannondale tha ran the same way, current bike hardly touch never a issue, road bike crap should stay on road bikes.
