If you’re looking for a traditional trail bike, you’ve come to the wrong place. Pack your stuff, say your goodbyes, and get out. But if you’re on the hunt for the perfect shred sled, you know, a “trail bike” that you can take down DH trails, huck off blind drops, or plow through the rowdiest of rock gardens, you’ll find yourself right at home on the Stumpjumper EVO Pro.

Last year, Specialized rolled out an angrier version of the Stumpy—the Stumpjumper EVO alloy. It was longer. It was slacker. It was aggressive as all hell. Riders seeking to push the limits of trail riding immediately began snatching them up. We paid attention and went to work on the carbon version of the EVO. Now, the Stumpjumper EVO Pro Carbon is here.

YES, IT’S LIGHT: Carbon has plenty of benefits, but most people really want to know about weight. Well, yes, considerable weight was shaved by going to carbon. The largest frame size (S3) comes in at just over two kilos, sans shock. Damn.

LONG, LOW, & SLACK: The carbon EVO pushes the boundaries of progressive geo with the same head angle as the Demo downhill bike (63.5 degrees), a steep seat angle (because you still have to climb) and a long reach. End result? Tons of confidence in any situation.

MASSIVE STOPPING POWER: SRAM Code RSC four-piston brakes help riders reign it in quickly. Tons of power. Good modulation.

FOX AIR/COIL SUSPENSION: If you’re going to push it, you need absolute control. The FOX FLOAT 36 Performance Elite fork and DHX2 Performance Elite coil shock get the nod here.

IT HAS THE CLIMBS COVERED: You might think of EVO as a shuttle rig, but we spec’d it with a 12-speed SRAM GX Eagle drivetrain. That massive 10-50t spread gives riders the range to scale the worst climbs.
