Specialized Launches New Generation of Bikes for Tracks

What’s New?

The trail riding, or pedaling on a trail, encompasses all that is best on mountain biking. Go out outdoors, ride up hill with friends and down incredible trails that make you want to smile and do it again. We’ve lived life on the tracks since 1981 and the feeling we had with the first Stumpjumper was never lost. We are excited and proud to continue the legend with the new Stumpjumper FSR, as well as a new trail bike for women, Rhyme.

The Legend Of Renasce Tracks

When we created these new earth machines, we had so many ideas and such excitement that it was hard to concentrate. You’ll find that the new Stumpjumper FSR and Rhyme are full of extraordinary detail, but there are three key areas we’ve focused on and deepened in creating this new generation of Specialized track bikes:

Driving / Pedaling-Track bikes should do everything well. Equally focused on rising bravery and ability to descend, Stumpjumper FSR and Rhyme are not afraid of anything.

Geometry – The 650b and rim platforms 29 built from scratch to accommodate each specific wheel dimension-at the same time, the chassis has been optimized for performance unmatched in its natural habitat, on the trail;

Angle steering box more open 67 °> 650b and 67.5 °> 29

Specific back stroke – 150 mm> 650b and 135 mm> 29

Shorter lower bead – 420mm> 650b and 437mm> 29

Super low central movement – 335 mm> 650b and 336 mm> 29

Efficiency in climbs / Efficiency in descents – Pedal and control are still essential for cycling on track. We guarantee that every thousandth of your leg’s energy will push the bike up, while ensuring that the descents will be more fun than ever.

FSR – Our fully active and independent articulation keeps the suspension in motion all the time, so that the tire stays in contact with the trail. We further refined the FSR to offer off-road performance, while remaining with the ManFu design, with full access to the saddle tube, fully sealed cartridge bearings at each pivot, made up of easy maintenance parts.

Rx Tune – we take the damper adjustment to extremely high levels of detail. Working with our shock absorber partners, we meticulously tailor each volume, compression, and return rate of the rear shock specifically to Stumpjumper FSR and Rhyme – be it an S-Works or Comp. The Rhyme receives the same treatment and more, since it is adjusted for lighter cyclists. We will increase the Rx Tune program for more platforms in the future, since it greatly facilitates the process of improving the sensitivity of our shock absorbers.

Utility-Now it’s more important than ever to be prepared for what the trail will offer.Most of the time, it has to do with the performance of the bike, but other times it has to do with what you brought to pedal without worries. Introducing SWAT for the first time in Epic and now we adapt the concept of being prepared for the trail with the revolutionary SWAT Port.

A SWAT holder holds your EMT tool kit under the top tube near the shock absorber (as in Epic)

Installed in the lower tube, the SWAT Port opens so you can store what you need within the frame itself (see below).

The brand new SJ FSR and Rhyme FACT Carbon Frames are produced with both track performance and space integration in mind, ensuring you have unforgettable pedals every time you hit the trail.

The SWAT stores chambers, pumps, and CO2 cartridges in place, and without vibrating noises.

The cabling is all internal, easy to pass and with carbon guiding pipes for protection, to ensure nothing snags on what you want to keep.

We will have stock for separately purchased SWAT transport accessories for carbon models as not all carbon models come with these tools/brackets.

Other Legal Details

There’s so much to talk about … and how we love the details, see:

The line has been streamlined-there are no more standard and EVO models. All bikes will have more open steering box angles, lower center drive, and shorter ramps.

All models come with the new Command Post IRcc canopy control, so you can use the intermediate position you like best and best suit that stretch of track.

All models come with internal cabling and Shimano brakes.

All models are compatible with two-crown crankshaft, through proprietary Taco Blade adapter and the new top tube design of the damper and damper. However, most models come with 1×11 transmission, benefiting the simplicity and effectiveness of use.

All models come with Traverse Fattie rims, for an optimized tire profile and greater traction capacity. More advanced models come with carbon-rimmed wheels-Roval Traverse SL Fattie.

What About 6FATTIE?

We believe in the new 650bx3.0 “or 6Fattie system.These tires offer you MORE traction and flotation for more control and speed, which guarantees you MORE fun.Using the brand new SJ FSR and Rhyme for trail, with a specific rear triangle with 148mm wide (to give more space for the tire), we guarantee the rider the best control and the best traction in a full suspension bike.

Chassis and FACT Carbon and M5 aluminum options

Available in late winter

6Fattie Purgatory tires at the front and Ground Control 6Fattie at the rear

The Decision Is With You

We firmly believe in Pedale and Decide. The new Stumpjumper FSR will be available with all three tire sizes, and Rhyme will be available in 650b and 6Fattie. We suggest you try the different options to choose your favorite:

6Fattie = Control

650b = Agility

29 “= Speed

These new track bikes took several years to develop and refine – an example of this is the new SWAT Gate that took almost five years to create. During that time, the goal of producing the best trail bikes was never lost. We hope you take the new bikes on your favorite trail to see what they are capable of.
