Monday morning....we start taking orders for the all new Stumpjumper FSR EVO 650b.
Two models will be available at the end of April:
STUMPJUMPER FSR EXPERT CARBON EVO 650b rrp$7699
and the STUMPJUMPER FSR COMP EVO 650b rrp$3799
WHY 650b NOW?
650b has the advantage over 26” in traction, stability, & roll-over. Additionally, our priority is serving the riders, who have clearly asked for this type of bike. We are not slowing down one pedal stroke on 29-inch innovation, as we believe in 29ers. Nevertheless, there are two clear scenarios when a smaller wheel, that is potentially lighter & quicker accelerating, may make sense for some riders.
1. Playful: When the rider wants to change directions slightly quicker. The smaller wheels on the 650b bike may feel a little more nimble. Don’t forget our modern 29er geometry still retains shorter rear ends than most companies’ 650b offerings.
2. Size: When bike sizing or intimidation from taller wheels is an issue. We can make a 650b with more standover clearance on certain models. There are also some riders, particularly newer riders, who might be intimidated by the look of the 29-inch wheel.
Bigger is better. Except when it's not.
