Ken Block’s Custom Specialized Stumpjumper

Ken Block’s Custom Specialized Stumpjumper

Ken Block is a YouTube sensation who regularly puts his life on the line pursuing unfathomable stunts in his high-performance rally car. When Block isn’t behind the wheel, he spends his time with two underneath him.

With a residence in Park City, Utah, Block can often be seen flying down the slopes. Recently, Ken connected with Specialized to bring a 2019 S-Works Stumpjumper to life.

The frame was painted by Death Spray Custom and was designed to match Ken’s vintage Escort Cosworth rally car, which unfortunately burned to the ground last summer.

Roval laced up some custom wheels and Fox provided custom suspension. As a final touch, Specialized laser-etched a pair of blue-anodized Boomslang pedals. Oh, and did we mention the frame glows in the dark? This is one sweet ride, Ken.
