The Ultimate Trail Bike

sj1_2B0F802FThe new Stumpjumper is the ultimate trail bike. Seriously, the damn thing rides like it's on rails. It's the most versatile trail bike we've ever made. And yeah, we're stoked about that, but we're even more excited about how well it's tuned to you. We've said goodbye to proprietary bullshit, focused on your needs, and made, what we feel, is the new benchmark in trail bikes.

sj2_1898A122ALL-NEW SIDEARM FRAME

We pulled out all the stops to lighten and stiffen up the frame, and what we arrived at was a vastly more efficient structure with a new sidearm design. The sidearm design directly connects all three mounting points of the rear-end and shock to the frame, and this creates a significant increase in both stiffness and performance over bumps. More explicitly, frame flex has been minimized when the rear suspension is active. In CAD, we were able to put the new 3D shape against the last iteration of the Stumpjumper, and with Finite Element Analysis (FEA), we were able to prove that the new layout was 20% more efficient. At the end of all of this, we've ended up with one of the lightest trail frames on the market.

sj4_038D92A6FLIP CHIP

The Flip Chip allows you to change the frame geometry with ease, all to support your riding style. There are two settings, High and Low, and when you "flip the chip," you effectively change the bottom bracket height by 6mm and the head tube angle by half-a-degree.

ULTIMATE ADJUSTABILITYsj3_1F4BAAA5

This is the best mountain bike we've ever made when it comes to customizing it however you want. All of the configurations use standard stroke and eye-to-eye metric shocks, so you won't find Shock Block anywhere. So yeah, if you want to swap shocks—be our guest. You won't have any problems from us or the Stumpjumper. We've also ditched the PF30 bottom bracket of yesteryear in favour of moving back to a threaded BB system, and both 27.5 and 29 frames can fit up to 3.0" tires, now. You'll still want to check with your fork manufacturer to make sure a high-volume tire can fit, but this should be music to everyone's ears.

sj5_0A409C29QUIETER DRIVETRAINS AWAIT

The new chainstay protector makes the drivetrain virtually silent, and it pretty much makes chain slap a thing of the past, too. The nubs on this protector disrupt the slap of the chain and this reduces the overall movement and sound of the chain.

SWAT DOWN TUBE STORAGEsj6_77F7D566

The SWAT™ Down Tube Storage takes everything we loved from the last generation and makes it sleeker and lighter, while also adding 20% more volume.
