Almost forty-five years ago, the first version of the Stumpjumper family was released. Since then, the StumpJumper Australia has made this model its primary reference in the trail bike segment. The following generations went on to polish details, incorporate technological advances of all kinds, and consolidate their reference position among cyclists.

Today's Stumpjumper Australia is still one of the most representative brands, although over time it has undergone significant upgrades to stay at the forefront of the trail and mountain segment. A very manageable trail bike with excellent energy transfer, it remains a top choice for those who are comfortable on steep tracks and trap-ridden slopes.

Stumpjumper – History

Sinyard is, at that time, a cycling enthusiast who sells his Volkswagen van to finance a bicycle trip to Europe. During that trip, Sinyard begins to establish the first foundations of his company and decides to buy components of Italian brands, such as forks or handlebars and begins to import them to the United States, where they were then somewhat complicated to find.

Brand Logo

1981 is a significant year in the history of StumpJumper. The company produces its first two bicycles, the Allez, a road model, and the Sequoia, a more bicycle-focused model. Besides, frame builder Tim Neenan is hired, who is entrusted with the design and construction of a frame intended for mountain use, and which could also be produced in series.

From this order the mythical Stumpjumper is born, the first mountain bike of the brand, which is considered one of the standards and that today continues to be one of the most successful models of the American brand.

In 1989, the Specialized Epic, the second mass production of mountain bikes in the world made of carbon fibre, is presented. At the beginning of the 90s, he introduced the Globe urban bicycle line into his catalogue, which later, in 2009, was subject to a significant revival, so much so that it became a brand of its own.

Stumpjumper – A Journey to Success

Forty-Five years ago, Specialized Founder and President Mike Sinyard started the company with three things - passion for riding, entrepreneurial spirit and a good partnership with bike shops. Since then, these three elements have been the cornerstones of each successful specialised brand achievement.

We can say that Mike Sinyard started Specialized by chance. He was a young bike enthusiast who loved to ride. In 1974, motivated by his love of bicycles, Mike sold his van to finance a tour of Europe on his bike.

He rode from north to south, and while staying at a hostel in Italy, he met a lady who had contact with the famous component manufacturer, Cino Cinelli. Sniffing for a business opportunity, he convinced her to get a date with Cinelli. He arranged the meeting and at the meeting proposed to be the importer and representative of the brand in the USA.

With the deal closed, Mike returned to California and visited several stores in the San Francisco area pedalling and taking prepaid orders from Italian components.

Upon receiving the goods, he returned to visit the stores to deliver the orders, loading the pieces in a cart pulled by him on the bicycle. Without the trust and partnership of these tenants, Specialized would never have taken off.
