The Specialized Camber first appeared in 2010 as a lightweight full suspension cross country trail bike. While Specialized already had their wildly popular Epic FSR full suspension race bike, they saw a need to produce a bike that was similarly lightweight and efficient to pedal, but wasn't so focussed on racing. Using a more upright riding position paired with confidence-inspiring geometry, the Camber debuted as a new option for those riders who might still want to dabble in some XC and marathon racing, but mostly just wanted a fun bike to ride. Since 2010, the Camber has evolved into one of Specialized's most popular mountain bikes. The latest Camber has bumped up the travel on the original, and now features 120mm of travel front and rear. It offers a more playful ride quality than the race-focussed Epic FSR, while still being lighter and more efficient to pedal than the bigger Stumpjumper FSR trail bike. You can get the Camber in both 27.5” and 29” wheelsizes, and in alloy or carbon frame options.

 

For those wanting the fastest option for covering rough terrain, the Camber 29 offers the smooth-rolling capabilities of the larger 29in wheel size, with more grip and stability on offer than the Camber 27.5. Travel stays the same at 120mm front and rear, with the FSR suspension linkage delivering a plush and linear feel that allows you to maintain your speed and momentum when ploughing through the rocks. Although 29er mountain bikes have traditionally been quite race-oriented, Specialized have ensured the Camber 29 is equipped with modern geometry for a playful and nimble feel on tight and technical singletrack. As such, there's a 68.5-degree head angle, short chainstays and a low bottom bracket height to keep your centre of gravity low. Combined with other modern features like the tapered headtube, PF30 bottom bracket and thru-axle wheels, the Camber 29 offers point-and-shoot handling that really comes alive the faster you go.
