The Evo does the Alps

Ric’s been to Les Gets with the Spesh

E*thirteen’s new TRS+ range could hardly fit a bike or place better – the trail-burying Specialized Stumpjumper Evo and the hardened slopes of Les Gets.

Only five years ago you’d have been told strictly that this was ‘DH bike only’ stuff, not for the feint of heart or single-crown of fork. After three brutal days attempting to keep up with Fabian Barel however, I can confirm that the £2.5k Evo is a force to be reckoned with.

We did have trinkets – the all-new Fox FLOAT 34 fork, a smattering of TRS+ goodies and beefy Specialized Butcher Sam Hill rubber. There was no doubting the frames sure-footedness or the back ends ability to dispatch root after root after monstrous root though.

Heal scraping around the outside of a tracked in berm, dispatching staircase-sized braking bumps or skating around off-camber ledges all whilst cackling like a Bond villain on poppers, we loved it.

You can see how Ric gets on with his Evo every month in MBUK Magazine.
