Öhlins for the trail riding massive.

Specialized Stumpjumper Coil Carbon need to know

  • Same FACT 11M full carbon frame, same as the top end S-Works model
  • Öhlins RFX 36 coil sprung fork and Öhlins TTX22M rear shock, same as the Enduro Coil
  • Roval Traverse carbon 29er wheels
  • SRAM GX 1×11 drivetrain
  • Race Face Aeffect chainset
  • SRAM Guide R brakeset

Specialized have confirmed that they’ll be making a production run of the Stumpjumper Carbon resplendent with an Öhlins TTX22M rear shock matched to a coil sprung Öhlins RFX36 fork.

Essentially the same bikes often used by their Enduro World Series racers Curtis Keene and especially Jared Graves.

>>> Why are coil shocks making a comeback?

Apart from the obvious change in suspension spring medium, it still sticks to the 150mm front/135mm rear travel configuration.

Priced at £5,750, the Stumpjumper Coil will sit between the existing Expert (£4,450) and the top of the line S-Works at £7,250.

This has the makings to be a cult favourite amongst enduro and bike park rig riders. We’ll be putting up a full ride review when we get our hands on one.
