Don't worry, S-Works doesn't get to have all of the fun—the  new Stumpjumper Comp Carbon 27.5 features the same frame with a full 11m  carbon chassis and rear-end as its older brother, but with a solid list  of no-fuss components, including a SRAM NX Eagle 12-speed groupset, for  an everyman's budget.

Our design goal for the new Stumpjumper  was simple—build the ultimate trail bike, one that feels telepathic. And  it turns out that this feeling all comes down to stiffness. Think of it  this way: when the frame's telling your hands one thing and your feet  another, your brain gets confused with the imbalance and the bike feels  unstable. In order to fix this, we had to get to work on dialing-in the  materials, shapes, and the layout.

We started by creating our own  mountain-specific stiffness test, and then we looked at the layout with  Finite Element Analysis (FEA) to see where we could get the biggest  stiffness improvements. This led to a big discovery: The Large and  X-Large frames needed more front-end stiffness while the Smalls and  Mediums were just fine. We were able to create a frame design that was  20% more efficient. And in the end, this proved to be one of the  lightest trail frames on the market, today.

When designing the  frame with the stiffness targets being a main goal, we developed a  radical new sidearm design. The front-end and rear-end are connected at  three points, and the sidearm helps keep all these points super stiff  and connected, all while taking about 100 grams out of the rear-end.  More explicitly, this minimizes frame flex when the rear suspension is  active.

We continued down the suspension path with a custom Rx  Trail Tune on both the fork and rear shock. Suspension performance is  highly dependent on frame, wheel, and rider size, so we use our Rx Tune  to get each bike to land in the middle of the adjustment spectrum, and  this gives you the biggest possible range to fine-tune your ride.  Another focal point of the tune was matching the suspension  characteristics between wheel sizes—we developed a specific Rx Tune for  each platform. So, no matter what wheel size you prefer, you'll get  perfectly linear suspension.

Steps were also taken to make this  bike easy to live with. Threaded bottom brackets make a triumphant  return, and we made room for up to a 3.0' tire. You're also free to run  whatever aftermarket rear shock you want, since we're using standard  metric shocks. We revamped the SWAT™ box, too, making it sleeker,  lighter, and with more volume. And customization is furthered with a  Flip Chip that lets you to dial-in your Stumpy to your riding style.  Switch it from High to Low and it drops your bottom bracket 6mm and  slackens the head tube by half-a-degree. Little details also jump out to  surprise you, like a newly designed ribbed chainstay protector that  makes chain slap a thing of the past and nearly silences the drivetrain.  Lastly, we seriously couldn't make cable routing any easier on carbon  models. Full tubes can be found throughout the carbon frame, so all you  have to do is push the cable and it'll come out the other end. No more  lazy loop, hidden stashes of magnets, pokey spokes, or pillows to cry  in.

The build on this Comp model comes with a list of components  that deliver undeniable quality, like a 12-speed SRAM NX Eagle  drivetrain, SRAM Guide R disc brakes, FOX front and rear suspension, and  Roval Traverse 27.5 wheels.


  •     The Stumpjumper's asymmetrical, FACT 11m carbon fiber  construction is lightweight, stiff, and ready to take on the trail. It's  built off our 27.5 Trail Geometry, so it's just the right amount of  both capable and comfortable. And with SWAT™ integration in the down  tube, a threaded BB, easy cable routing, and an all new chain silencer,  it's ready for anything the trail, or you, throw at it.
  •     The FOX DPS Performance rear shock features our Rx Trail Tune,  ensuring that no matter the wheel or frame size, your bike is dialed-in  perfectly.
  •     SRAM's 12-speed NX Eagle groupset features a wide gear range that delivers climbing and descending efficiency in spades
