SPECIALIZED STUMPJUMPER EVO COMP VS SPECIALIZED STUMPJUMPER COMP

When deciding between the Specialized Stumpjumper EVO Comp and the Stumpjumper Comp, consider their key differences:

  1. Suspension and Travel: The EVO Comp features a FOX FLOAT 36 Rhythm fork and FOX FLOAT X Performance rear shock with 160mm front and 150mm rear travel, making it more suited for aggressive trail riding. The standard Comp has a FOX FLOAT 34 Rhythm fork and FOX FLOAT DPS Performance rear shock with 140mm front and 130mm rear travel, offering a balance of comfort and control for varied terrain.

  2. Geometry: The EVO Comp is designed with a more aggressive geometry, catering to riders seeking a more challenging and adventurous riding experience. The standard Comp, with its slightly less aggressive stance, is geared towards versatility and all-around trail riding.

Both bikes share the quality of a FACT 11m carbon frame, SRAM GX Eagle 12-speed drivetrain, and Specialized hookless alloy rims, but these differences in suspension and geometry cater to different riding styles and preferences.

8. Conclusion

SPECIALIZED STUMPJUMPER EVO COMP vs SPECIALIZED STUMPJUMPER COMP

The geometry of the Specialized Stumpjumper EVO Comp is designed for aggressive trail riding with a slacker headtube angle and a longer reach compared to the Stumpjumper Comp. This makes the EVO Comp more stable at high speeds and on steep descents.
