Whether you’re drawn to the trails for a rush of speed, testing your ability, pushing your limits or just to explore new trails – Specialized make bikes for riders, whatever the ride. Specialized are constantly innovating, with the introduction of FSR over 20 years ago that has constantly been refined with the help of countless pro athletes. Or the introduction of Brain, that does all the thinking about your suspension so you don’t have to.
Stumpjumper and Stumpjumper EVO
Looking for an ultra capable trail bike that can take on pretty much anything you can throw at it, look no further than the Stumpjumper. Or if you want to turn it up to 11 and go to the next level the EVO models will help you get there. Think of an Epic crossed with a Demo and you have the Stumpjumper, nimble when you need to get to the top of trail and burly enough to have a good time getting back down.
The Enduro should come with a warning, it will make you bite off more than you can chew on any other bike. Good job the Enduro follows design cues from the Demo, it can take on the gnarliest lines you can throw at it. The new Enduro’s slacker head angle, longer reach, and steeper seat tube make it even quicker and more capable.
Epic and Epic EVO
The design team had one job with the new Epic, make the fastest XC bike in the world. Lucky for them, they had a head start, coming from the winningest full suspension XC bike already on the market. How do you make the fastest faster? Add a smarter, tougher, more responsive Brain shock, make the frame stiffer and lighter, the new race-focused Epic cuts the time between starting line and victory even shorter. The EVO version takes the speed from the race winning Epic, slackens the geo, adds some travel to make that backcountry singletrack even better than you imagined.
It’s not easy making the world’s lightest hardtail. It’s even harder to make the lightest hardtail that is super capable and confidence inspiring. A slacker head angle and geometry tweaks, more tyre clearance, tuned tube shapes and a tweaked carbon layup make this a proven, reliable, race winning machine.
All out speed is the mission for the Demo. Blazing a path on fast and tough tracks, the Demo Race suspension design has been developed around a more rearward axle path that reduces rear wheel hang-up, increasing speed instead. Winning both the Downhill World Championship and overall World Cup titles in it’s very first season, the only thing that will hold you back is you.
What do you get when you take all the learning from the Epic, add in some super advanced welding technology and quality aluminium? You get the race ready Chisel. Light enough to hold its own on climbs, nimble enough to navigate tricky rock gardens, who said the Epic was the only way to the podium.
Few bikes have such a history of proving a trail ready bike doesn’t have to break the bank. Over the past 30 years, Specialized have proved that you can constantly redefine the relationship between value and performance.
