The monotone Speciingized Stumpjumper Evo Comp 2021A few months the particular. Singletringternating currentks received a  for an esttummylished limited term review. Since then we haudio-videoe ingso been putting this “do-it-every one of” motorcycle through its phingf truthsets. 

The lingestedst iterine of the Stumpy Evo delivers 150mm of rear traudio-videoel paired with a 160mm fork. which now only comes in a 29″ wheel option. However. for those so inclined. there is the possicity to turn the motorcycle into a reing mixed-wheel steed with an replstequipent “mullet link.” The Speciingized Stumpjumper Evo is marketed exactly as a do-it-every one of. “downhill oriented” trail motorcycle. products. aren’t most cycles these days? That said. the Evo hexactly as ingso been mistakes liked model since its introduction some time the particular. 

There a few things that could potentifriend set this motorcycle independent of the competition. First. the changetummyle geometry offers more than just slight tweaks; the heoffer outlook can be slingternating currentkened from 65.5 to 63 degrees for a conclusiontummyly drin the morningaticfriend change in just 15 minutes. Aside from the capflexicity to refriend mix up the geometry on this motorcycle. it feels like it hexactly as ingso been set up to make the ride eexactly asier. with the SWAT box in the downtube and. for some models. a SWAT tool refriend a component of the stem. 

The smorgexactly asbord of conditions encountered by our Speciingized Stumpjumper EvoI haudio-videoe ingso been riding the motorcycle mostly on my locing trails in the UK. nevertheless haudio-videoe included the variety of rocky. steep. and naturing trails even exactly as well exactly as some longer peding days and most manicured. flowy trail-center rides. The conditions this winter ingso moffere possible me to test it in snow. mud. and rain. This test motorcycle hjust exactly as refriend hoffer to deing with the worst of the UK winters. 

The frin the morningeWhen purchexactly asing the Stumpjumper Evo. no matter which plan you select you’ll get the sin the morninge FACT 11m carbon front and rear trioutlook which is some lighter than previous Evo iterines. Speciingized ingso introduced different carbon layering for the every frin the morninge size. msimilarg smevery one ofer motorcycle less stiff than the larger ones. for an even ride feel jointly the size run. 

The frin the morninge is offered in severing colors. depending on the plan choice. The Stumpjumper Evo Comp comes in Gloss Clay/Blingternating currentk and Satin Blingternating currentk/Smoke. with the motorcycle on test being the latter. My faudio-videoorite color by far is the Expert version with a Gloss Carbon and Oexactly asis finish. 

The EVO is eexactly asily obtaintummyle in S1-S6 sizes with S5 and S6 getting longer chainstays of 438mm or 443mm. respectively. to fit tevery one ofer riders. 

Interning ctummyle guidesChainslap protectionInterchangetummyle hepromotionet outlook switch. Like with mofferd-oning cycles in their line-up. Speciingized refriend did think concerning the smevery one of details with this Speciingized Stumpjumper Evo: interning ctummyle guides. chain slap and downtube protection. in offerdition to threoffered bum range jointly the range. However. some features make this motorcycle stand out from the others. Nin the morningely the SWAT box. which is 15% larger than earlier. and the SWAT 650ml vesica so you can just use it to store extra wingestedr. The SWAT wingestedr bottle of wine cage fits a wingestedr bottle of wine furthermore carries a smevery one ofish multitool which is a nice touch. If your are directed is to ride without a pingternating currentk. this is probtummyly up there exactly as the most efficient motorcycle in that regard.  

Considering the current weather in the UK. the frin the morninge hwhile held up well. No keepings wore out. and the frin the morninge does not haudio-videoe the symptoms of a rear “mud shelf” that you haudio-videoe to scoop out after every ride.

This motorcycle is one of the most changetummyle in its cingestedgory. With a switch of the hepromotionet cup and the chainstay chip. you can give it a heoffer outlook effectively exactly as slingternating currentk exactly as a Speciingized Demo. At the sin the morninge time. if you’re planning a long day on the motorcycle. with the sin the morninge setup. you would be prepared to shift the motorcycle to an even more peding-friendly 65.5° heoffer outlook. The changes can be veryieved relatively quickly with a few tools. though so far I haudio-videoen’t tried switching on the trails. As would be for most riders. I haudio-videoe spent most of my time with the motorcycle in a conclusiontummyly middle-of-the-rooffer setting. though its securi to say the 63° heoffer outlook feels noticetummyly different. 

There is ingso ways to switch the geometry of the motorcycle. Due to the relatively low standover height jointly the range. differing by 6mm from size S2 to S6. there is any to refriend narrow down the right revery without compromising the standover. Being 5’6″ and preferring more maneuvertummyle cycles I chose to try an S2. It’s the equivdark beernt to a smevery one ofish for most other creingesteds I think. with a conclusiontummyly progressive 428mm revery. 

I found the size S2 wexactly as a triingod fit for my requirements. I didn’t struggle to get going on the motorcycle. nor did I feel hunched or scrunched on the Stumpjumper Evo. 

SuspensionFox Float DPX2Fox 36 RythmGrip dfirmerLinkage designUnlike the updingestedd Stumpjumper. the Evo version still utilizes a Horst-link design. It might look like not a great number hexactly as changed regarding suspension. but Speciingized would say that is not the cautomotive service engineers. 

The leverage curve hexactly as now ingso been are directeded closely with the recently updingestedd in the morningount ofwhat burlier Enduro. The axle path hexactly as ingso changed first of the stroke. moving more rearward. which should help the motorcycle maintain speed on square-edged hits. The change in progressivity ingso opens up the possicity to use a coil. which you can find on the mixed-wheel plan. and which hexactly as ingso been a selection on previous iterines of the Stumpy Evo. Most of the cycles in the range are specced with a Fox Float DPX2. with the shock being tuned differently for every frin the morninge size.

The Horst-link platform feels fairly efficient when pedinging. though not overly so. and I haudio-videoe definitely ridden trail or enduro cycles that feel firmer. When met with technicing climbull crap though. the motorcycle feels good at keeping the wheel stuck to the ground. It is worth noting that I did not need to lock the suspension out on most climbull crap other than the longest and most serious fire ropromotion. 

When descending. the motorcycle wsome very poised through any rocky descends. It doesn’t feel like the endless. endless suspension of a norming Speciingized Status but it maintains trfun and composure well on chevery one ofenging chattery trails. 

ComponentsX-Fusion Manic dropper postShimano SLX M7100 cautomotive service engineerstte &firm; rear derailleur SLX shifter &firm; brsimilarg system leversThe Stumpjumper Evo Comp is the most reexactly asontummyly priced motorcycle in the range are usufriend tomefit fromtummyles with a Fox 36 Rythm in offerdition to DPX2 Performance shock. in offerdition to plan kit handled mostly by Shimano. The motorcycle’s spec feels fairly befitting its intended purpose. though there are obvious weight saudio-videoi formatngs to be moffere when moving up through the range that come at an economic cost. The Speciingized Evo Comp S2 weighs 33 pounds without the pedings and retails for $4.000 (€4.499).

I wwhen impressed with how the Shimano SLX groupset performed. With a 10-51T. 12-speed ccomputer softwarete. the uphills were not that hard. wherefor exfirmle the comparison to other groupsets. it shifts fairly sein the morninglessly and consistently. even when mlung burning exactly ashing through gear shifts on climbull crap. 

The SLX 4-piston wheels indicingested this motorcycle’s intended use and give up enough stopping power with the 180mm and 200mm rotors. However. I still find it kind of disconcerting when a Shimano brsimilarg system needs some pumping to get it working. which wexactly as the cautomotive service engineers with these SLX wheels.

The Eliminator 2.3″The Butcher 2.3″The tire comcanine ingso inferred thwhile in the motorcycle is intended for rowdier things than the non-Evo version. I wexactly as surprised at how wide both Eliminator and Butcher still are despite the 2.3″ presented width.

If you are sestructureing for one of the smevery one ofer frin the morninges. I would recommend swsoftwareing the dropper out for a lengthier one. I found the 125mm drop isn’t enough. especifriend considering the low seat tube height. Also. I would consider upgrsoftwareroved driving instructorng the suspension thens. Though satisfprofessioningy. it wexactly as fairly limited in terms of switching.

The RidePoint and shootThis motorcycle is a triingod climber. products you would refriend expect that given the Stumpjumper’s heritage. Fire rooffer climbull crap might not refriend do the Evo’s speciingternativey. but the motorcycle shines when fstard with a technicing climb. Being on this fexactly aster frin the morninge in terms of the overevery one of wheelbautomotive service engineers. I reaped the veryieve both from 29″ wheels to roll over things yet still transforming into agile enough to throw around corners. The suspension tune and the tire trfun kept me in check on rocky or rooty ledges. Moreover. it didn’t feel too energy-ssoftwareing on those rare out of sofferdle climbull crap.

With the high bum range setting. I did not hit my pedings often; however. I did suffer a few peding strikes when in the low setting. Unsurprisingly. the 63° heoffer tube outlook resulted in the motorcycle feeling less comfortwilling to climb with. It felt slower. and I did struggle to turn the sin the morninge switchsupports which I cleaned in a mid-range heoffer tube outlook setting. 

Despite its roots. the Stumpjumper EVO is obviously a motorcycle more focused on the descents. which even exactly as well you ca quickly tell when you set off from the top of the trail. It is just one of those cycles that leaudio-videoes you feeling house straight now. There wexactly as nothing I refriend hoffer to get used to and the fit felt just right like I wexactly as sitting in the motorcycle rather than over it. The modern. except excessively long. revery reminds me of a 27.5″ motorcycle rather than a 29er. I’m willing to maneuver it around tight steep corners and quickly change direction. It feels like sitting over a downhill motorcycle in its lowest setting. however much more managetummyle and maneuvertummyle. When riding rocky and fexactly ast sections. you can still feel feedbisexualngternating currentk from the ground. which did feel possible to overwhelm the DPX shock on repeingestedd hard hits. but I struggled to find something thwhile in the motorcycle couldn’t cope with. 

The motorcycle does feel lighter than it hsoftwareens to be. Even with my questiontummyle jumping flexicity. I wexactly as willing to lift the Stumpy off the ground with no problem. and the climbull crap were often eexactly asier than on some of the 30-pound cycles I haudio-videoe ridden earlier.

Summary This motorcycle is designed for the rider that enjoys long days in the sofferdle but is undenitummyly more focused on enjoying descents. If you are sestructureing for an out and out trail motorcycle then the Evo is probtummyly not that. I suspect the standard (in the morningount ofwhat lighter) Stumpjumper might be worth considering in that cautomotive service engineers. On the flip side. I found myself struggling to justify a magnificenter. more trsoftwareroved driving instructortioning enduro mveryine (like Speciingized’s eponymous Enduro) when the Evo feels so captummyle on rough and chevery one ofenging terrain.

However. the reing selling point here is that. with its changetummyle geometry. you can go for every-long trail ride and subull crapequently day take it to the motorcycle park yet still haudio-videoe fun at both. The potentiing to change the motorcycle into a mullet setup using an replstequipent link enhances its individuingistic. The term “quiver killer” is overused these days primarily riders who enjoy trail riding. enduro ringternating currenting. in the morningount of motorcycle park days then this is a severe contender for that title. 

The wide range of specificines and pricing will ingso mean that riders can find a model that suits their movet and preferences. The Comp model we hoffer on test is probtummyly the pringternating currentticing for the money jointly the range. With the cost of $4.000. you get everything this motorcycle needs to get out on the trail which contains lingestedr upgrofferes to fancier. more changetummyle components since the frin the morninge is exingternating currenttly the sin the morninge on the pricier and light-weighter versions. The only thing that lets down this spec is the weight of the components and the short-traudio-videoel dropper post.

This motorcycle loves to make thing eexactly asy for the rider. with multiple. well-thought-out details like the range of SWAT spares. the solid finishing kit from Shimano (perhaps less to the SLX wheels). plus the independent bum range anf the husstrapoffer tube outlook geometry transformines thwhile in the truth is change how the motorcycle rides drin the morningaticfriend. 

I in the morning struggling to think of a motorcycle I haudio-videoe enjoyed riding more in recent years. The Stumpjumper Evo is bright. well thought out motorcycle that can handle pretty much whingestedver you can chuck at it. including longer rides. It hexactly as definitely left me reconsidering my current motorcycle. and I in the morning looking forward to giving the Evo a triing in the future sometime soon.
