We’ve heard it all before: “This bike’s for going fast that one’s for having fun.” “This one pedals well that one shreds.” Why not make one bike that does everything well? Well we did and it's called the S-Works Stumpjumper. Unrivaled handling and stiffness sublime suspension kinematics and a complete abandon of proprietary nonsense—it rides like a dream. And with 29-inch wheels you’re free to climb and descend at the hyper speed that 29ers are known for. 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. We started by creating our own mountain-specific stiffness test and then we looked at the layout with Finite Element Analysis FEA to see where we could get the biggest stiffness improvements. This led to a big discovery: The Large and X-Large frames needed more front-end stiffness while the Smalls and Mediums were just fine. We were able to create a frame design that was 20% more efficient. And in the end this proved to be one of the lightest trail frames on the market today. When designing the frame with the stiffness targets being a main goal we developed a radical new sidearm design. The front-end and rear-end are connected at three points and the sidearm helps keep all these points super stiff and connected all while taking about 100 grams out of the rear-end. More explicitly this minimizes frame flex when the rear suspension is active. We continued down the suspension path with a custom Rx Trail Tune on both the fork and rear shock. Suspension performance is highly dependent on frame wheel and rider size so we use our Rx Tune to get each bike to land in the middle of the adjustment spectrum and this gives you the biggest possible range to fine-tune your ride. Another focal point of the tune was matching the suspension characteristics between wheel sizes—we developed a specific Rx Tune for each platform. So no matter what wheel size you prefer you’ll get perfectly linear suspension. Steps were also taken to make this bike easy to live with. Threaded bottom brackets make a triumphant return and we made room for up to a 3.0' tire. You're also free to run whatever aftermarket rear shock you want since we're using standard metric shocks. We revamped the SWAT™ box too making it sleeker lighter and with more volume. And customization is furthered with a Flip Chip that lets you to dial-in your Stumpy to your riding style. Switch it from High to Low and it drops your bottom bracket 6mm and slackens the head tube by half-a-degree. Little details also jump out to surprise you like a newly designed ribbed chainstay protector that makes chain slap a thing of the past and nearly silences the drivetrain. Lastly we seriously couldn’t make cable routing any easier on carbon models. Full tubes can be found throughout the carbon frame so all you have to do is push the cable and it’ll come out the other end. No more lazy loop hidden stashes of magnets pokey spokes or pillows to cry in. As with every S-Works build this S-Works Stumpjumper 29 comes with only top-of-the-line parts like a full SRAM XX1 Eagle drivetrain SRAM Guide RSC disc brakes FOX Factory front and rear suspension 150/150mm respectively and the best carbon wheels money can buy the Roval Traverse SL 29.   The Stumpjumper's asymmetrical FACT 11m carbon fiber construction is lightweight stiff and ready to take on the trail. It's built off our 29 Trail Geometry so it's just the right amount of both capable and comfortable. And with SWAT™ integration in the down tube a threaded BB easy cable routing and an all new chain silencer it's ready for anything the trail or you throw at it. FOX FLOAT DPX2 Factory has three modes—Open Trail and Firm—that control large compression adjustments on-the-fly. There's also a tool adjust compression adjustment that allows for fine-tuning of the compression in Open mode. The legendary FIT4 damper large stanchions buttery-smooth Kashima coating—the FOX 36 Factory 150mm fork is one of the best out there.   FRAME FACT 11m full carbon chassis and rear end asymmetrical design 29 Trail Geometry SWAT™ Door integration threaded BB fully enclosed internal cable routing 12x148mm dropouts sealed cartridge bearing pivots replaceable derailleur hanger 140mm of travel FORK FOX 36 29' 150mm FACTORY REAR SHOCK FOX FLOAT DPX2 Factory Rx Trail Tune EVOL Air sleeve Kashima Coat 3-position adjustment w/ Open Mode adjustment 210x50mm INNER TUBES Presta 40mm valve FRONT TYRE Butcher GRID casing GRIPTON® compound 2Bliss Ready 29×2.6' REAR TYRE Purgatory GRID casing GRIPTON® compound 2Bliss ready 29 x2.6' CRANKSET SRAM XX1 Eagle Boost™ 148 170mm crankarm 24mm spindle CHAINRINGS 30T BOTTOM BRACKET SRAM GXP SHIFT LEVERS SRAM XX1 Eagle trigger 12-speed REAR DERAILLEUR SRAM XX1 Eagle™ 12-speed CASSETTE SRAM X01 Eagle 12-speed 10-50t CHAIN SRAM XX1 Eagle 12-speed w/ PowerLock® FRONT BRAKE SRAM Guide RSC hydraulic disc organic pads Guide S4 4-piston caliper 200mm rotor REAR BRAKE SRAM Guide RSC hydraulic disc organic pads Guide S4 4-piston caliper 180mm rotor HANDLEBARS Specialized Trail FACT carbon 6-degree upsweep 8-degree backsweep 27mm rise 780mm 31.8mm GRIPS Specialized Sip Grip half-waffle S/M: regular thickness L/XL: XL thickness STEM Syntace MegaForce 2 6-degree 31.8mm clamp SADDLE Body Geometry Phenom Expert Adaptive Edge design hollow titanium rails carbon fiber base 143mm SEATPOST Command Post IRcc 16-position micro-height adjustable two-bolt head bottom mount cable routing remote SRL lever 34.9mm S: 130mm M/L/XL: 160mm of travel SEAT BINDER Specialized bolt-type alloy 38.6mm PEDALS Specialized Dirt
