Looking for a trail rig that climbs like no other, descends like it's on a mission, and is so much fun that it's probably illegal in 27 countries? Well, buckle up, Buttercup—Specialized's Stumpjumper FSR Expert 29er is going to make your day. The light, stiff FACT 9m carbon frame goes up and down hills better than the best of them and features an integrated SWAT door in the downtube to store your gear. Out back, you've got 135mm of trail-taming FSR suspension. Up front, RockShox's lauded Pike RC3 devours rough terrain, spits it out, and asks for more. Lightning-quick Roval wheels and category-defining SRAM 1 x 11-speed gearing keep you moving forward, while dependable Shimano brakes deliver premium control. There's also a Command Post IRcc dropper so you can really rail through corners.
