Review-

With a 2×10 Sram drivetrain, carbon cranks, fox suspension and a 67 degree head tube angle – Specialized’s Stumpjumper EVO is a swiss-army of a bike meant to handle many different disciplines of mountain biking.  Offering a laterally stiff frame, Specialized also took into consideration the EVOs designed, making sure the bike looked beautifully mean on all angles.

Bottom Line

If you’re looking for a full-suspension All-Mountain ride that you can cruise down the steep stuff and grind up hills, the Specialized Stumpjumper EVO is the bike to go after.  Add a dropper post and you’ll be ready for any type of bike-shredding action.

Review

Specialized’s Pitch caters to riders who are looking for an All Mountain ride that is capable of climbing and descending quickly without the added weight and price of a longer travel frame.  With 140mm of travel, the bike offers a plush ride even on rough rock gardens and square-edged hits.  Although the Pitch has 5 inches of travel on tap out back, the bike still maintains the climbing ability of an XC traveled frame with Specialized’s patented FSR suspension system – minimizing bob during pedal strokes, yet soaking up the terrain for maximum traction at all times.

Bottomline

A nimble bike that can descend with longer travel rigs, the Pitch is right at home for all-day rides with thousands of feet of climbing and thousands of feet of chunky descent thrown in.  Compliment it with an adjustable fork and an adjustable seatpost system for added efficiency and control for the ups and downs.
