You know those loose switchback climbs you just never make it through? Prepare to send them with ease. Know that feeling of getting deflected off of rocks and struggling for control around corners or off-camber bits of trail? That feeling is in danger of being a memory of a distant past when trailbikes sported a pathetically narrow footprint. Why? The new 2016 Specialized STUMPJUMPER FSR 6fattie has arrived! I got a chance to ride one of these trailslayers yesterday on a 31-mile jaunt with about 3K of climbing, all on singletrack.
The bike has traction for weeks. It just clings to everything, and the confidence that follows is amazing. As I wriggled the bike through tight trees and turns, an analogy occurred to me that will resonate with the skiers among you, particularly those who’ve been around for a while. Remember going from a skinny ski to a true fat ski? Remember the feeling of confidence you had through powder or chop? This is that bike. It rolls through rough terrain effortlessly, and with its beefy 3.0” tires, it climbs better than it has any business doing.
During the ride yesterday, I passed a few riders, and as I came up on them, one thing really stood out. These were not racers, just riders out having fun, and I felt bad for them. They didn’t need anorexic race machines; they needed the bike I was on. I watched them bounce off rocks and sketch out in off-camber sections. Meanwhile, I just rode comfortably behind them, rolling over the rough terrain smoothly and with more traction than I have ever felt on a trail bike. After 25+ years riding bikes, that’s a big statement. I realized that a lot of riders could benefit from a bike like this.
Bottom line: the 2016 Specialized STUMPJUMPER FSR 6fattie opens up the sweet spot and is just plain fun to ride. Check one out today at one of our 4 locations in Sandy, Salt Lake City, Sunset or Ogden.
