Product description

Go big or go home. The Specialized Stumpjumper FSR Expert Carbon is a trail eating machine for aggressive riding. At home on the most technically demanding trail centre runs it is more nimble than an Enduro bike but still capable for an experienced rider to take it on Enduro trails.

For 2016 the FSR has been redesigned to fit 650b wheels with a slacker head angle, short chainstays and 150mm travel.


The Expert Carbon comes with a FACT 9m front triangle and M5 alloy rear. This combination makes for a super light, strong and stiff (where it needs to be) frame that’s ideal for trail riding.

To fit the new 27.5” wheel size, Specialized have redesigned the geometry. A slacker 67 degree angle means the Expert is more stable at speed - great for when you’re gunning it. 420mm chainstays are short and keep the rear end tucked in. This improves agility. The lower bottom bracket gives you a lower centre of gravity for improved cornering.

Also new this year is SWAT door storage. A space has been built in the downtube that is big enough to store trail essentials like a spare inner tube, pump and CO2 cartridges. The door combines with a bottle cage. That means on shorter hacks you may not even need a pack which is more comfortable and your centre of gravity will be lower.

There is no rattling as you ride and frame integrity hasn’t been compromised to include the feature.

Internal cable routing keep your cable protected, and reduce the amount of maintenance you’ll need to do on them. A 12mm bolt through rear axle gives you a stiff rear end, and a 15mm axle on the fork improves steering precision.

The IRcc 125mm (100mm size small) command dropper post can be adjusted on the fly. You can set the right saddle height for the section of trail that you’re riding.


The FSR Expert Carbon comes with a 150mm travel RockShox Pike RC fork. It is stiff, light and plush with excellent small and big hit performance. The Pike is one of the best performing forks on the market.

Matched to the Pike is a Factory version FOX Float CTD rear shock. This is the same as featured on the S-Works model. A boost valve gives you better performance when the trail gets rowdy. A Kashima coating provides a slicker feel and improves durability.

The biggest talking point is the FSR suspension system. It is simply one of the most effective suspensions systems you can get on an MTB. The 4 bar linkage system with a second pivot on the chainstay (close to the rear axle) allows the rear wheel to move in a linear path.

There is no impact on chain tension and no pedal kickback or pedal induced bob. The result is a solid full-suss that can climb well and descend in a controlled and stable way. Sealed cartridge bearings on all pivot points are smooth and easy to service.

RX trail tune on the rear suss means that every shock has the volume, compression and rebound range tuned for each Stumpy. You don’t get this from every manufacturer.


The Expert comes with a 1x11 SRAM X1 drivetrain offering plenty of gearing for a range of conditions, in a package that is light and ultra reliable. It’s a performance set-up that will give you the most out of your ride.

Shimano XT hydraulic disc brakes are powerful with a great feel and modulation. Ice Tech pads are a bonus by providing the ultimate cooling on longer descents.

Roval Traverse wheels with a 29mm rim width are ready for aggressive trail riding on technical sections. You get a full Roval Traverse wheelset including hubs. They’re tubeless ready for a smoother, faster and easier ride - and no pinch flats.

The Specialized Stumpjumper Expert is a trail hungry full-suss for fun descents and technical traverses, but efficient on the climbs. A solid all-rounder long-travel trail bike for 2016.
