Specialized is upping the aggressive trail bike game as they implement their EVO characteristics through more of the Stumpjumper FSR line. Most exciting is the introduction of the Carbon Stumpy EVO...a trail bike that gets 150mm of rear travel with all the features a downhiller or freerider could want using a carbon main triangle. In addition to the carbon model, a 29er Stumpjumper EVO enters the line-up, opening the doors for those who want trail-ripping performance on bigger wheels. Finally, the Stumpjumper FSR Comp EVO is a solid complete bike at a reasonable weight and price point for those on a budget. It's a good time to be a trail rider!

Prices and Weights
The Stumpjumper Carbon EVO clocks in at a scant 26.4 pounds (medium) for a pretty reasonable price, considering the construction and spec...about $5,200. That can be compared to the other end of the scale in the Alloy Stumpjumper FSR Comp EVO that weighs 27.9-pounds (medium) and comes in about half the price at $2700. 29er fans can get their mitts on the Stumpjumper FSR Expert EVO 29 for roughly $4000. The size Large rig tips the scales at 28.6 pounds, which is extremely trail-worthy.

Stumpjumper FSR Expert Carbon EVO frame details
At only $2700 and under 28-pounds, the Stumpjumper FSR Comp EVO is a solid bike for those on a budget. With a Sram 2x10, 10-speed drivetrain, Fox RP-23 rear shock and RockShox Revelation RL 150 fork, this bike will get the job done and leave you with money in the bank for epic road trips.

The 29er EVO comes in both complete bike kit and frameset only, giving you the option to build up this trail ripper yourself.
