Specialized announces details and pricing of the 2022 Stumpy Evo Alloy sporting a host of adjustable features.
The longer, lower, slacker movement started in Europe and it took U.S brands a very long time before catching up, but once they did they went all in! Take the Stumpy Evo for example. When Specialized released the Evo we were all taken by how progressive it was, and in fact, many testers found that perhaps the Evo was a little too low in the BB department, but that wasn’t the only aggressive Specialized. Since the Evo the big S has launched the Enduro and the Kenevo SL, bikes that feature such radical geometry changes that Specialized even uses a new sizing system for them.
The Stumpy Evo hasn’t been forgotten though as a new version has been announced today. This new alloy version of the bike sports 6 distinct geometry settings and comes with adjustable headset cups, adjustable BB height and an optional aftermarket shock link that converts the Evo to Mullet without upsetting the geometry.
Out of the box the 160mm front, 150mm rear travel trail/enduro bike rolls on 29in wheels, and while the geo chart hints at big bike park days, the alloy frameset is sorted for epic long-distance adventures too. The seat tube angle is a pedal-friendly 78-degrees, and the alloy frameset boasts the same SWAT storage solution as the flagship carbon frames.
Specialized has announced 2 build options for the new alloy Evo, an Elite build packed with Kashima coated Fox Factory suspension, and a Comp level bike with Fox Performance level kit plus a few changes to the component sheet.
Pricing for the Stumpy Alloy Evo Elite will be set at £4500 whereas the Comp build is priced at £3250. For more details head over to the Specialized website where availability details should be listed.
