The 2016 specialized Stumpjumper FSR Elite 650b kicks it up a gear and really shows what 27.5” wheel alloy frames can bring to the table.
Specialized’s own M5 alloy frame is lightweight, stiff, dependable and features internal cable routing. The 150mm rear suspension travel is kept in check by a custom Fox Float Factory CTD rear shock featuring their super slippery Kashima coating, while the front is taken care of by a 150mm RockShox Pike RC. Shimano’s ever popular SLX brakes bring everything to a stop when you need it and you’ve got SRAM’s X1 1x11 groupset to get you going again. This Stumpy is a real shredder!
The Specialized Stumpjumper name has been on the scene for nearly 35 years, and that’s not by accident. Since the first Stumpjumper FSR back in 1994, Specialized’s continued innovation and evolution of the original 4 bar linkage has resulted in one of the handling trail bikes on the market. The Stumpy is available on interest free finance (0%) with flexible deposit options from £0.
