Worth the money for how it changes the bike
This review is for the 195X46 Stumpumper EVO rear shock, which I installed don my 2013 Stumpjumper Expert Carbon 29er (OE Brain shock 194X48).
I have a few weeks of riding on it now and it is SO much better in the initial and mid stroke over the small square hits (rocks, roots) than the Brain shock.
It barely fits the frame , clearance is TIGHT near the front eyelet, and cannot use a 21 ounce regular water bottle because of the shock reservoir. Small downside for how it has change d the trail worthiness of the shock.
The tune M/L seems right for my bike and riding style. I rarely jump, so I removed the 5 volume spacer bands and I am very pleased with how the bike rides.

PROS: It fits, It works

CONS: It's big

Excellent upgrade
Replaced the X Fusion that came on my Intense Tracer with the Monarch +. Made a huge difference on the bikes performance. Very easy install. Tons of adjustability.

reliable good all around shock.
I have ridden fox, cane creek, and rockshox suspension. I would say that the cane creek is the best for aimed down rides and fox is the most playful and best for recovery of consecutive hits. That leaves rockshox. I will say it is probably the most efficent which i would say is due to their rapid recovery setup but this also leaves more to be desired when it comes to suppleness and rough sections that seem to make the bike turn slightly bouncy. That being said If your looking for a shock to be super playful and recover quickly for a shorter travel bike i think this would be a fitting choice.

Too much hype
Bought after hearing lots of positive things. I pretty much bottom out this shock on even medium size hits, when I up the PSI i lose all of the high speed, small bump compression.

Response from Jenson USA
Hey Sven, there could be many factors (rider/gear weight, linkage leverage curve, riding style/conditions, etc.) for the underwhelming performance. Luckily, the Monarch is a great shock, and can be easily tuned to compensate for the variables mentioned above. I'd recommend Rockshox Bottomless Ring Kit. This allows you to change the compression curve to match your needs so you don't get harsh bottoming out, but can still set your air pressure/sag for good small bump compression.

I have a 2014 specialized enduro 29 and want to buy this shock. does it have the correct mounting hardware? I think it is the same size as the stump jumper evo
Matt on May 24, 2016
Hello, One of the size on your website says 7.785x2.0(200x51), is this just a typo, it should be 7.875x2.0? Anyways, I just want to make sure it will fit my 2015 Giant Trance 2.

Thank you,

Harry

BEST ANSWER: Harry, Nice catch!! You are right, that is a fat finger mistake that we will take care of right away. That measurement is correct for the bike you mentioned.
Does the slash option 27.5 fit a 2013 slash as well?

Does the Enduro 27.5/29 fit the 2015 Enduro Elite 650B? Does it come with the Specialized Mount? Does it have AUTOSAG? Does it come properly tuned for the Enduro Elite 650B?

There is a price difference between the several 200x57 models. Any details on what the differences are? I have a '14 intense carbine 275.

thank you
CK on May 3, 2016
Is the 197X48mm shock for the Spec Stumpjumper a debonair can or standard air can? Also is this an autosag equipped shock?

Thanks!

Is there a difference between the normal one and the high volume version? What should a 2 30 lb guy get with an aggressive riding style?
